Next, we noshed on their Buffalo Wings—or shall I say Buffalo balls? Well, this one reminds me well of dynamite that ubiquitously give colors to Filipino street food. Primarily feature chicken fillet and green chillies, this plate freezed me a bit. My reaction was tangled between excitement and confusion. My tastebuds were bombarded with irresistable notes of humami with incredible yet not overpowering kick from the chillies.

Combo Otso was also a hit! Prided by our own Sisig but infused with a twist of ala-Mexicana style. It also has chicken strips, southwest chips and a choice of rice. Definitely not a boring meal for anyone!
We were also able to try their Combo Uno. Composed by genuine size of grilled chicken, Jalapeno side salad and rice. My experience with it was bizarre! The flavors of herbs and spices were composure-breaking as I delved deeper into the soft and succulent meat. Truly, I have to say that I was more than astonished!
