History of Classic Savory The years following the end of World War II proved not just for the Philippines but for the Ting brothers as they moved to start a fresh life and establish their livelihood. By 1950, the brothers had put up a “panciteria” in the busy district of Quiapo serving mainly lomi. Over time, as their little panciteria grew in popularity as the brothers began to discover other dishes they could serve their customers, they were able to create a special recipe for fried chicken and gravy that became so popular that soon not just members of the local Chinese community came to partake of the special tasty, juicy and tender chicken treat but also a number of Filipinos who would come to the tiny restaurant with their families to “savor” this “savory” fried chicken dish. And thus the popular Savory Chicken House was born and its first branch opened in Escolta. The menu soon expanded to include other Filipino and Chinese dishes. Now, after over 50 years of existence, the third generation of the Ting family who launched Savory is re-launching the brand via the Classic Savory mall outlets so that more of the younger generations can continue to savor the tasty, juicy and tender fried chicken and other popular Chinese dishes. The Classic Savory also offers delivery services for free, bulk orders, catering and functions.
