Sunburst Fried Chicken

Founded in 1971 at Iligan City, under the name of A & C Chicken and Pizza House, this restaurant spread like forest fire to the Visayas. The name may change but the Fried Chicken is still much the same. People in the island of Cebu just couldn't get enough of their fried chicken. If you talk about fried chicken, then you are talking about Sunburst. Their fried chicken is simply the best in town, no doubt about it. The crisp of its skin will haunt you like Lady Gaga's Poker Face and the tenderness of the fried chicken's meat is ecstatic. Very well cooked and very well prepared. Sunburst always make me howl like a wolf on a full moon.

The famous Fried Chicken

The stage is dominated by their fried chicken, but you just can't set aside their backups. Their Lumpiang Shanghai is classic. The sauce may be a little weird for a Lumpiang Shanghai, but who needs the sauce when the lumpia itself is good to go?

Fried Bangus

I tried their Fried Bangus on a hot plate. The bangus was well fried but I didn't feel the sauce for me to say it brought down the house. Also, you got to taste their Beef Ampalaya. The mild flavors in this dish along with a touch of bitterness from the ampalaya makes it worth every peso you pay. The meat is tender and the sauce is soothing. This is a must-have.

It is so interesting on how Sunburst makes their Fried Chicken. It is like, they know everything about chickens and the art of frying it.

Sunburst is so good, I personally think they know which came out first between the chicken and the egg.

Visit them at SM City (233-1820) or at Capitol (254-9400).
