Weekend Food Tripping at: Chicken Charlie + Happy Lemon + Suzhou Dumplings!

Happy Sunday!  Let's all relax today and enjoy the day off!  Some of you may spend time with friends, family or just bond with the Lord.  However you may want to spend this day, seize it and do not forget to tell your loved ones how much you love and appreciate them!

I appreciate you all AMW Readers!  *group hugs* 

Weekend food tripping is once again!  I am really happy to share to you my food finds because food does make us happy!  And happiness is really next to gorgeousness! *winks*

I've heard so much about Chicken Charlie and BonChon, I wanted to try both but just do not have the luxury of time!  My friend makes really good chicken and there are times I do crave for them!  It would be embarrassing to knock at their door and ask them to cook for me!  So we settled on trying Chicken Charlie as I heard they are really good!

We were able to visit the original, tiny restaurant before the move to the bigger one!  Nice posters on the wall and I like 0 grams trans fat! 

Pay as you order.  The menu right above the cashier is easy to read and there are not a lot of choices!  Well, what do I expect...the restaurant is CHICKEN Charlie!  *slaps forehead*

Potato Wedges
Not a fan as they obviously came from those frozen potato wedges that you can purchase in supermarkets!

Charlie's Bowl
Php59.00 (approx $1.10)
Crispy Chicken Rice Topping
What I love about the Charlie's Bowl is their special sauce!  I wish they drizzle more on the rice!  I can't expect them to be filled a lot of chopped pieces of chicken!  It's actually more of the bread crumbs than chicken pieces that I've tasted.  I can't complain for the price though!

Combo 3 4 wings and 4 drumsticks
Php288.00 (approx $6.85)
Your choice of Soy Garlic or Hot Sweet Sauce
We ordered Soy Garlic sauce for 2 wings and 2 drumsticks while the rest are on Hot Sweet Sauce for us to be able to taste the best of both worlds!  Chicken Charlie promises no greasy feel and taste and they stand true to their claim!  I find the chicken to be really crunchy but I find the meat itself isn't that tasty as compared to the skin!

Yesterday, Mr. AMW and myself finally went out on a date and were able to reminisce those Greenhills shopping and food tripping days when we were still boyfriends and girlfriends!  After a long night of shopping!  Yes, I actually did shop for some.. *clears throat* essentials!  *laughs*  We went to Promenade to wind up and I finally gave Happy Lemon a try!  I ordered....

Pearl Milk Tea with Oreo Cookies

What's the point of unwinding if there's no comfort food?
