I will make this Classic Savory SM CDO review short. This Mindanao lifestyle blogger ate at Classic Savory SM Cagayan de Oro last weekend. I brought along some blogger-friends and told them that Classic Savory is pretty popular in Manila.
Disclosure: paid for the food and this is NOT a sponsored post.
Introduced in 1950 by the Ting brothers, Classic Savory opened its 50th branch in SM City Cagayan de Oro. I have eaten at other Classic Savory restaurants but that weekend was the first time that I visited Classic Savory CDO branch. We ordered 1 whole chicken (requested the kitchen folks to chop it into bite pieces but they failed to do so), a platter of Yang Chow rice, kangkong with crispy pork belly and Classic Savory Long Life pancit guisado. The food was all right (a little bit expensive, though, if you compare the prices with other good restaurants in Cagayan de Oro City) and thankfully, my friends weren’t disappointed with the chicken. It was still tasty, tender and juicy – just as I expected it to be.
What I just found a bit odd was that the store management decided to turn the airconditioning unit off while we were still eating. Not sure if that was deliberate.
What I’m sure of, though, is that it may take a long while before I go back to Classic Savory SM CDO.
