Poulet Manille

I woke up and it's 2016 already! Where did time go?!?

If there is one thing I've learned after trying unsuccessfully to stick to my new year's resolutions for the past 36 years, it is to be realistic.

And so, no.

I will not promise to wake up at 7:00am every morning. But I promise to be up and ready before 9:30am.

I will not promise to lose 50 lbs. But I promise to eat healthy.

I mean healthyER.

I recently discovered this charming little place in SM Aura that serves only free-range chickens. Free-range means the birds live in a big open space, running around freely, breathing fresh air, basking in sunshine, playing with their friends, until they graduate in life to become someone else's happy meal.

Poulet Manille, the house of healthy and happy chickens 

 They have other items on the menu, but I was there for the roasts.

What a beauty this brass rotisserie imported all the way from France

Sexy legs

The 75-day Pamora Farms chickens were surprisingly meatier than I expected, and they 
smelled appetizing, too.

But first, Watermelon Ginger and Country Pink Lemonade coolers

We started off with Country Chicken Liver Pate

Spread pate on toast, top with berries coulis, eat, repeat.

A healthy salad of seared tuna nicoise

And then the main event: Clean, healthy, free-range roast chicken. 
Poulet Manille serves the chickens in four flavors. This one is the French Country Classic
with amber butter.

Each chicken comes with two complimentary sides. You can choose from cream of wild spinach,
 pommes frites, broccoli and toasted almonds, creamy mashed potatoes, mixed biodynamic 
vegetables, roasted garlic rice, and fragrant jasmine rice.

Poulet's Truffle Chicken

South West BBQ Chicken with sweet and tangy rootbeer reduction

And my favorite of the four, spicy Peri Peri Chicken

In a genuine effort to eat healthier this 2016, I ordered an army of peri-peri chicken for our media noche.

I had a free-range drumstick in my hand (instead of lechon) at midnight and 
I am proud to say I started the year right. 
Baby steps!!!
