This is how Chowking advertises its Salo Braised Beef on its website Chowkingdelivery.com. The price tag is at P241.00, and judging from the picture, it seemed plenty enough to feed two people.
This is what we got when we asked Chowking to delivery their Salo Braised Beef to our house, just a few minutes ago.
The container is as small as what they put their snack size mami orders into, and it was even only half full. Now if this is not false advertising I don’t know what is.
The most expensive Chowking Lauriat, the Chicken Supreme Lauriat, is pegged only at P182.
I called back Chowking delivery to check if the store might have made a mistake, but no–the customer service agent confirmed, after putting me on hold for a few minutes, that it was indeed how they delivered the Salo Braised Beef.
In short, this turned out to be a disappointing way to spend two hundred and forty-one pesos. And perhaps the only positive way to look at this is to consider it a stressful way to lose weight quickly.
Chowking umayos kayo! Ang mamahal na ng mga orders nyo, lumiliit pa ang mga servings.
