McDonald's Chicken Fillet Ala King

Hi, everyone!

It's not often that I come up with post on Food, albeit a Food Review.  I had literally stopped from writing on Trip Advisor for a number of months now, though I hope I could get back to it, but it seems it gets tiresome just getting to it these past few months.  I know I have a lot of catching up to do with Trip Advisor someday soon.

For now, I'd like to share a post here on my blog on the new product this 2015 of McDonald's Philippines.  It's Chicken Fillet Ala King!!

It made me travel back to memory lane, when I was already a senior in the auditing/accounting firm I was working for in 1995.  It was the 1st time I was treated to a meal by my co-auditor from the team of auditors I'm with. She's been the co-worker or co-auditor I most worked with not until I got new hires to work with me in return, making me the senior in the audit on fieldwork.

I miss the times working with her.  As a token of friendship, she treated me to Chicken Ala King at Frenchbaker at Landmark Foodcourt located in the heart of Makati City, in the midst of the big Commercial Center in Makati, in 1995.  {It was in that year that Frenchbaker was bought and was newly acquired by Jollibee Foods Corp.} It was just the 2 of us on a break away from the hustle and bustle of our audit work.  We would usually eat at the client site with food deliveries or at our own office building canteen or client's canteen.

The taste is very much similar with what McDonald's offer this year 2015 here in the Philippines.  Their new product really brought back fun working memories.

The meat of the chicken fillet was served tender, juicy and the outside crisp as it is breaded chicken fillet.  I like the cream sauce Ala King very much.  It is this very distinctive taste that reminds me of Frenchbaker and the good old times with my fellow senior Ana.

It's best served with softdrinks (Coke or Sprite works with me), but I preferred pineapple juice as I'm dieting - a pledge to trim down after gaining so much weight recuperating at home from the operation.

So here's to more fantastic meals, may they bring forth wonderful memories of me working in the corporate jungle or corporate world or just being out there with my profession in my younger years.

Thanks, for those fun times of working it all out and of working hard as an SGVian in those years from 1994-1996.

Cheers to McDonald's Philippines for a fantastic new product this 2015!!
