Señor Pollo, to open 3rd branch
Team behind Señor Pollo is reportedly setting up its third branch in the South.
Although mum about the details, Shoreditch Food Inc., the company behind the hit classic South American roasted chicken, is reportedly opening a new branch in the South on July 2016, said SPOT.PH.
Señor Pollo currently has two branches, one at Scout Rallos, Tomas Morato, Quezon City which opened in May 2014, and in Makati that opened on November of the same year.
The restaurant is known for its roasted, friend and grilled chicken, served with a special sauce, quesadillas, sandwiches and a wide range of side dishes to choose from, including mac and cheese, fries, and the famous Patatas Bravas.
It is also prominent for its unique Latin themed interiors, wall murals and not to mention, their well-known bathroom art in every branch.
Restaurateur Dixie Mabanta, owner of Shoreditch Food Inc., also owns and operates popular restaurants El Chupacabra, Mexicali Food Group and Café Mediterranean Inc.
PH Team and Bistro’s Exec Chef, champs at largest Asian food trade show Les Toques Blanc of the Philippines Chefs Association (LTB) and member Josh Boutwood, Bistro Group’s Executive Chef, bagged special awards at the Food&HotelAsia2016 (FHA2016) held in Singapore, the Inquirer reported.
Philippine team Les Toques Blanc of the Philippines Chefs Association (LTB), headed by team lead Kenneth Cacho, with members Rudolph Cabuay, Gerd Gendrano, Gyle Gacina, Sonny Mariano, and Mia Yan, were hailed as overall champion of the FHA2016 Competition, the largest international food trade show in Asia. As part of the team, British-Filipino chef Boutwood received gold award for Plated Mains, and bronze each for Chefs challenge and Plated Appetizers.
The 29-year old chef said that the biggest challenge for the team was time management since each of them had hotel kitchens and restaurants to manage on a day-to-day basis.
For Boutwood, he also had to oversee operations of Bistro restaurants, including recently opened Texas Roadhouse. He said in an interview with the Inquirer, “I would spend nights in the kitchen practicing, conceptualizing and doing run-throughs of my dishes”.
Boutwood also said that it was first international culinary competition, completing the country’s sweeping win. His dishes were inspired by his daughter’s favorite stories and fairy tales. Some include Piglet & Winnie’s Honey Escapade, Donald was the Ugly One, and Bambi, a life in the woods.
