Anu nga ba ang kasaysayan?
In her article, "Classic chicken reinvented," Marge C. Enriquez, Lifestyle writer of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, discusses Savory's history: "It was established by Tony Ting, an emigré from Fujian, and his brothers, Mariano, José, and Vicente, who was the cook. Before the war, they opened Tops Café in Binondo which later became Savory in post-Liberation. The main attraction was the star anise-scented, mildly garlicky chicken, based on a Chinese recipe. They came in three sizes: spring, medium and regular at the price range of P4 to P6."
Today, the descendants of the Ting brothers continue to run Savory, which now has various branches all over Metro Manila. The original Savory's first branch, which is located at the foot of Jones Bridge, is still around. And yes, people still pronounce the name as "Sah-boh-ree." The Savory Chicken (P170 for half and P320 for whole) is still its bestseller.
