It has been there since 1950.
Twenty nine years before I was born.
It is now 60 years old.
And the building shows its age.
Savory Escolta Branch
No, it is not some fancy 6-star hotel with a grand lobby, pretty chandeliers and in-room jacuzzis. Savory is a humble home with worn down couches, a cheerful kitchen and cozy dining room where special occasions are celebrated, birthday candles blown.
All these years, one thing hasn’t changed.
The old building’s very heart and soul.
The fried chicken.
That thin, crisp and tasty layer of skin.
That tender, juicy and oh so flavorful meat.
Now wipe that drool trickling down your chin.
And then look again.
That thick, smooth liquid bursting with rich chicken umami.
The kind that can only be when made with the very essence.
Pour it on your chicken. Pour it on your rice.
Then close your eyes, chew slowly, and savor every bite.
Because only a well-guarded family recipe, carefully passed on from generation to generation, can give you this kind of unparalleled experience.
Savory is tradition.
Experience it only at The Original.
