Risk it for the biscuit
The year 2019 has been heaped with nostalgia! The Jonas Brothers are back, All That is getting a reboot, and – thanks to the Kuya J Group – Popeyes has made their long-awaited return to the Philippines!
The brand first arrived in the Philippines in the early aughts, but sadly closed the last of branches in 2007. Over a decade later, they’re back and ready to make a more lasting mark!
The first branch in Arcovia City, Pasig will officially open to the public on May 16, from 10AM to 10PM.
Here’s an exclusive peek:
In case you didn’t know, Popeyes was first founded in New Orleans in 1972 and now has more than 3,100 locations worldwide. The restaurant is best-known for its Southern-style menu featuring spicy fried chicken, chicken tenders, fried shrimp and others.
In their Manila-exclusive menu, the restaurant will still be serving Popeyes’ signature Fried Chicken and Biscuit combo but they will also be offering Fried Chicken and Spaghetti and, of course, Fried Chicken and Rice.
You can enjoy your meal with a variety of sides, including: Cajun fries, mashed potato, Cajun rice, and even creamy crab soup!
But we still think that the best way to enjoy the spicy Southern style chicken is with their buttery, honey biscuits. Fun fact— Beyonce is a huge fan, which is why the brand gifted her with a lifetime membership card just last year!
Insider Tip: Unique to the Philippines are the Hazelnut and White Chocolate Biscuits!
Another classic Popeyes menu item are the Chicken Tenders which come with your choice of: Ranch, Bold BBQ, Mardi Gras Mustard, and Gravy.
For those looking to try Popeyes in the near future, they already have SEVEN confirmed store locations which includes major malls like Eastwood, SM Manila, Vertis North, and Alabang Town Center.
But for those who want it now – what are you waiting for? They’re OPEN!
