Motivated by the success of Ysabella’s Chicken – which was the first special project of Bacolod Chicken Inasal (BCI) with ABS-CBN – the Philippines’ premiere chicken Inasal family restaurant has decided to concoct another tasty teleserye treat!
The result is not just one but eight delicious meals, all inspired by ABS-CBN’s well-loved primetime show “I Love Betty La Fea” that features Bea Alonzo in the title role.
The program’s creative team and Bacolod Chicken Inasal’s marketing team brainstormed and put on their culinary thinking caps and thought of two sets of dishes: one based on the simple, no-frills, and practical milieu where Betty La Fea resides, and another based on the posh and “sosi” environment of the Eco Moda advertising agency where Armando (played by John Lloyd Cruz) and Daniella (Ruffa Gutierrez) hold office.
Thus, taking heed of Betty La Fea’s love for street food, BCI came up with BBQuito Paborito ni Betty La Fea: six combos each with three sticks of barbecues (pork, chicken and “laman-loob” like gizzard, liver or “isol”), all served with garlic rice and Nestea iced tea. The barbecues are doubly flavorful because they’re dipped in sweet marinate and then basted with a secret barbecue sauce. The BBQuito Paboritios are BCI’s first-ever value meals affordably priced between P99.50 to P109.00.
Then there is the Eco Moda Especial set. Take your pick of two sumptuous feasts. The first, Pollo Galantina, is quartered chicken stuffed with meat, cheese and vegetables, accompanied with thick gravy. This gallantina is actually a treasured family recipe from the grandmother of the BCI owners.
Then there is also the healthy and mouth-watering Liempo Sabroso – roasted pork belly flavored with lemongrass and served with soy vinegar dip. The Eco Moda Meals are priced at only P225.
So if you want to save but still would like a yummy and filling meal, go for any of the BBQuito Paborito ni Betty La Fea. But if you can afford to splurge, try Eco Moda Especials.
