G/F, The Link (Anson’s Building), Makati Avenue, Ayala Center, Makati City
Maus, Jo & I had our christmas lunch at Classic Savory. This is located at the Link building in Makati City. We actually just found out that the building is now called “The Link”. This was the building formerly named, “Anson’s” building so that’s how we know it.
Anyway, Savory Restaurant has always been a favorite especially among filipino-chinese community. When I was still studying, my mom would always take me to Savory restaurant located at Binondo. I’ve always loved their chicken especially the sauce. Though (ofcourse), my favorite is still KFC 😛
The 3 of us were sooooo hungry! We ordered a lot but still it was okay since we almost finished everything! We didn’t forget to order their specialty ofcourse and ordered some other dishes so we could try.
There were a lot of people dining at Classic Savory. I guess it just proves that the decision made by the 3rd generation of Savory owners to revive and expand the franchise was the right one.
Here are what we ordered:
- Wawi’s Crab Foo Yong (Php 195)
This is a different twist to the usual omelette. This is layered omelette w/ shrimps, mushrooms & crabmeat with gravy poured all over it. It was delicious! I love it! I wonder how they were able to form that shape though.
- Nido Soup with Quail Eggs (Php 195)
I wonder why they call it Nido soup. This is chicken broth with mocked bird’s nest and quail eggs. There’s also “chicharon” there btw that really overpowered the taste of the soup. We kind of didn’t notice the bird’s nest anymore coz of the “chicharon”. Still it was a great soup. I never thought it was that tasty. Glad Jo ordered this.
- Savory Fried Rice (Php 195)
This is classic Savory’s fried rice specialty. It’s Fried rice w/ green peas, sausage & savory chicken. Honestly, I didn’t even tasted the savory chicken though it’s there. It just tasted like Yang Chow Fried rice.
- Half Savory Chicken (Php 195)
This is the best of the best! Their chicken is sooo good with their gravy. Though I love KFC chicken more, Savory’s gravy is the best out there! I wonder how they made it but that sole reason is why we still keep coming back to Savory. It’s just savoring!!! 😀
- Savory Tropical Cooler (Php 45)
Okay, this is normal 4 season’s drink. I don’t think it was fresh though, but it tasted good. So can’t complain
One other thing I noticed is this sign hanging on the restaurant’s wall:
I really hope all other restaurants do have this. Customer service is extremely important. Even if the food is good but service is bad, You’ll still lose your customers. That said, I was impressed with Savory’s customer service. I’ll definitely go back to dine again soon.
See the happy faces? Yes, it was a great meal! 🙂
