Chowking is a Philippine chain that specializes on Asian food with a touch of the West with its fast food approach. Founded in 1985, it’s a Jollibee company, the largest Philippine fast food chain. Nowadays, Chowking is established in such diverse locations as North America and The United Arab Emirates.
The unique focus of the chain in oriental food and ingredients has been a staple since its inception, and it serves all three main meals plus anytime of the day snacks.
For breakfast at the Chowking, the two specialties are Almuchow, consisting of Chinese fried meat and served with fried rice and egg, with three varieties: Chinese sausage, beef and pork. Lunch and dinner are more diversified, with 5 Lauriat dishes that mix fish, meat, vegetables, chicken, fruit, sauces and dressing, Chinese rolls and rice, between others, like the classic Sweet and Sour Pork Lauriat or the Shanghai Lauriat.
There’s also 10 chinese rice dishes, with meat, chicken or fish ad always served with veggies and sauces too, like the Orange Chicken Rice Meal, the Braised Beef with Rice or the Boneless Bangus Garlic Rice Meal. Instead of making rice as side food only, the chain also serves meals with rice as the main ingredient: the Chaofan fried rice meals.They are served with small bits of Iberian chorizo (a type of hard and smoked sausage), pork, beef, veggies, spices, egg and shrimp. Finally, there also family sets, all in the Lauriat family, consisting of fried chicken pieces, beef and pork, pancit, chicharap and dim sum served with rice and with cold beverages to go or to eat inside the store.
