Jolly V Fried Chicken, Lau Pa Sat
OK, this wasn't really meant to be a streak of Filipino food at Lau Pa Sat, but I just happened to notice these guys while I was here, and was curious to try a plate while I was at it. The chicken was different: rather than a rock-hard batter, this coating seemed almost bread-like, which was a nice change of pace. This was supposed to be a knockoff of the big Filipino fast food chain Jollibee, but I've never been to one of those so I really can't make a valid comparison.
Perhaps more interesting was the fact that my so-called Jolly Meal came with a serving of pancit palábok, a Filipino-Chinese dish similar to Thailand's kanohm jin noodles but topped with some sort of Filipino sauce. Contrary to how it looked, it wasn't a sweet nor sour sauce at all: it was just salty enough for me to enjoy. I suppose that I'm never going to complain about anything that it topped with crushed pork rinds though.
