Whenever my schedule is tight and life is so busy that I don’t have time to cook (yes, that happens..), our go-to ulam is lechon manok and lechon liempo from nearby. Lately, I’ve been getting tired of its taste. There’s a variety of Lechon Manok seller near our home and if I’m not mistaken, there are four of them. But even if we buy from the different brands of lechon manok, the taste remains the same because of the sauce. They either have lechon sauce or toyomansi.
I am a big sauce person and I even order extra sauce whenever I buy lechon manok.
A few weeks ago, Reyal Litson Manok sent over some of their Litson Manok my way and the sauce literally blew me away!
Reyal’s Litson Manok sauce is not merely glazed or drizzled as the chicken is served with a generous amount of the it. The sauce variant is also a great departure from the usual ‘lechon sauce or toyomansi’. They call it “Hanep na Sauce” and it’s a combination of sweet honey sauce, chili oil, and fried garlic bits that is oh-so-flavorful. You can even drizzle it over rice and eat it like that.
Reyal’s “Mas masarap ‘pag may sauce” tagline is due to that unique sauce that comes with its litson manok. The brand is the answer to the Filipino’s penchant for sauces but offers something different from the usual lechon sauce or toyomansi.
Reyal Litson Manok, is a charcoal-roasted butterfly-cut chicken but you can also let them chop it into serving size pieces. You can get it for ₱150 each.
As of now, they have six new stores in Commonwealth, Santa Rosa, Calamba, Los Bańos, and Dasmarińas. They have 31 outlets nationwide located in Davao, CDO, Southern Tagalog, General Santos, Ormoc, Calbayog, and of course, Metro Manila.
I hope they open one here in Caloocan.
