If there was one store that was definitely worth your money it's HOT-STAR Large Fried Chicken. Hot Star entered the Filipino Food Scene a couple of years back with their very first store somewhere near Macapagal Avenue in Pasay. Now, they have branched out with different branches in the Metro Manila. In other countries, HOT-STAR would usually be a kiosk but for us Filipinos they made it into a full pledge fast food restaurant.
Really crunchy and has a little sweet taste because of the sauce. Believe me when I say that this is a meal in itself. You could have it as a snack or partner it with the Sticky Rice.
One thing on the menu that got me hooked was the FISH BURGER (85Php ala carte). Made with cream dory fish, this one had a smooth texture. Topped with honey mustard sauce, I liked the sweetness it gave.
Of course, what is a visit to HOT STAR without having their HUGE CHICKEN? I got the ORIGINAL flavor and the RED HOT (145Php Ala Carte)
The original were seasoned with salt and pepper. The texture was pretty crunchy and the size was enormous. It's usually as big as one's face. As for the RED HOT, I was actually pleased since it wasn't as spicy as one would expect. It was just right. Believe it or not when I eat at HOT STAR, I usually take the leftovers and have them for breakfast. Perfect.

If you are into INSTAGRAM Follow me @foodinthebag.Since these chicken cuts were so huge, it is best to share it with someone. A few of my friends would order one huge chicken and a couple of rice and just share it. Cost efficient for lunch if you tell me.
The fact that you can also have unlimited gravy makes it a joy to eat too.
