First bite at Sincerity Express

We were in Robinsons Magnolia one morning and decided to go to the food court to try the fare of the newly opened Sincerity Express, a stall version of the famous Binondo restaurant. Since it is on "trial mode," Sincerity Express had a very limited amount of dishes offered. We tried two noodles dishes, a seafood dish, and, of course, its famous fried chicken.

First, the Sincerity Chami (Php 120, Large): fat miki noodles, stir-fried with lots of shrimp and lots of sauce. The dish was tasty. The shrimp flavor was quite pronounced but not overpowering. The noodles were firm and of high quality.

Then, the Chacanton (Php 120, Large): lo mein noodles stir-fried with meat, shrimps, and vegetables. Delicious! From the taste, one could sense that all the ingredients were sautéed perfectly. Good marriage of meat and shrimp flavors. And the noodles weren't soggy; they were just right.

Next, the Fried Oyster Cake (Php 140, Small). It's basically oyster omelet. Also delicious! Each slice was teeming with fresh, tasty oysters. The cake wasn't oily and was fried well.

Lastly, the Sincerity Fried Chicken (Php 320, Whole): 16 pieces of well-seasoned, golden fried chicken. The meat was moist and flavorful, and the skin, crispy. The fried chicken was not salty and had hints of ham flavor. It came with ketchup and gochujang. We enjoyed dipping the chicken in the latter.

Price: Based on the taste and amount of food we got, we found the fare here reasonably priced.

Service: With only one fryer for the chicken and limited number of cooks, it takes 15-20 minutes to get your order. Plus, the lines get long because of the many Sincerity fans. So, brace yourselves.

Sincerity Express is at the Robinsons Magnolia food court.
