Food Trip at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has been in the business for more than forty years already, it started in 1972 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Now they have more than 3,000 restaurants around the globe. I have no idea that we had Popeyes before in the Philippines, the restaurant was already closed in year 2007 without me knowing it. The good news is, it returned to our country, and the first store opened last May 16, 2019 in Arcovia City.

When I learned that we had Popeyes here, I was not that excited because I already tried Popeyes during our trip in Singapore. Our hotel is located in Bugis Village and there is a Popeyes branch in that area where we ate our dinner. The chicken is good but it is not something that I will crave but I think we ate here twice din because of the free wifi. If I remember it right, the wifi password is printed on the receipt and we use it while eating to stay connected because we don’t have free wifi in our hotel. 

The fast-food restaurant is known for its traditional Southern fried chicken, cajun fries, cajun rice, and honey biscuit. I checked my photo albums and found few food photos. It was dinner time so I don’t have good lighting and my camera phone is not good. We ordered Cajun Rice Platter and Mild Tenders; Cajun Rice Platter includes chicken tenders, cajun rice, and drink while the Mild Tenders includes chicken tenders, biscuit, signature side dishes, and drink. 

Last weekend, we went to Festival Mall for our eye check-up, we arrived before mall hours so while waiting, nag-iiisip na kami ng kakainan. My husband told me that there is Popeyes in Festival Mall so I remembered our gift vouchers. He got these vouchers when he renewed his membership card at Landers last year. Since hindi kami lumalabas, now lang namin nagamit. 

As expected, in every country kahit same fast food or restaurant the menu is not the same. Here in the Philippines, we had sweet spaghetti, biscuits with hazelnut and white chocolate flavor. Since my son is not allowed to eat in the restaurant, I just ordered the chicken tenders meal for take-out. 

I ordered T1 for PHP145, which includes 3 pieces of chicken tenders, biscuit, and drink, and T2 for PHP129, which includes 3 pieces of chicken tenders, rice, and drink. You can choose from 5 different dips, they have a hot ranch, ranch, bold bbq, mardi gras, and gravy. Mas mahal yung biscuit kaysa sa rice. Hehehe! I don't have pictures of the rice meal kasi gutom na yung mag-ama ko.
