MANILA, Philippines — The past few years have been wrought with challenges, with polarizing issues leaving the country divided. Needless to say, the pandemic has turned our world upside down.

Over the pandemic, foodpreneur Alfonso Ang Hortaleza witnessed the sad closure of many of his favorite restaurants and chicken joints, leaving many foodies like him frustrated and disheartened by what was left in the market.

Taking matters into his own hands and wanting to bring back soulful comfort food to Pinoy palates, Hortaleza launched Chicken United in Manila. 

“Through Chicken United, we wanted to bring back joy and that sense of fun and surprise into our pagsasalo. And when it comes to meals, Filipinos really come together. In this time of divisiveness, Chicken United aims to bring people together through shared plates,” he said. 

Proving itself to be a cut above the rest, Chicken United serves up delicious chicken thighs and wings – juicy, flavorful and crunchy to the bite. The breaded fried chicken comes in 9 different flavors and is available in 6pc and 12pc orders (thighs or wings), made for sharing or enjoying solo! Biting into each is simply a sensory delight!
