When Onions Made Me Happy

Sometimes, I go to a restaurant because friends say the food there is great.

That is why, when I was with Arby for a Sunday night dinner, I thought of trying out Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken. Arby wasn’t one of the people who talked about it. But he has dined there before. So, when I was choosing what to order, he pointed to Fernando’s Spicy Chicken Fillet. It sounded good. So we asked for two of it. Arby said that he wanted his mild. I went with spicy.

Eating after walking for over two hours made me hungrier than usual. So I also asked for Peri’s BBQ Chicken Flatbread and, for dessert, El Fuego.

When our main meal arrived, I saw the difference of our orders. The dips for his were lighter while mine were darker. After talking a hunk of the meat, I immediately liked the chicken. Then I dipped it in one of the sauces. Each had a good kick! Combining all three was a good idea. Too bad that there wasn’t much of them.

After finishing our chicken, we went for the bread. Somehow, I loved the crispy onions so much than anything else on the bread—and that is big coming from me who detests onions. Never knew that onions could make me happy. I expected that there would be a rich dollop of BBQ sauce but there was hardly any. So, that was disappointing for me.

Good thing, El Fuego was a fun way to end the meal. Instantly loved the burnt marshmallows, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate cake medley. It reminded me of so many childhood snacks.
