AWARD-WIN­NING AC­TOR, model, and record­ing artist, Den­nis Trillo, is pop­u­larly known for the var­i­ous ro­man­tic roles he has given life to as GMA-7’S “Drama King.”

Den­nis has chan­nelled love, pas­sion, courage, and a whole range of emo­tions through no­table char­ac­ters in tele­vi­sion shows like “Darna,” “Gagam­bino,” “Temp­ta­tion of Wife,” “My Hus­band’s Lover,” “My Faith­ful Hus­band,” “Juan Happy Love Story,” and “Mu­lawin vs Ravena”. Then, on screen, he has made his mark for no­table per­for­mances in films like Aishite Imasu 1941, My neigh­bor’s Wife, you’re Still The One and Bakit La­hat ng Gwapo May Boyfriend?

But be­yond the lime­light, Den­nis has dis­cov­ered a new “love.” Lured by the aroma waft­ing from the grill, he fol­lowed his ap­petite to the place where his heart gains true sat­is­fac­tion. From legs, thighs, breasts, and wings, Den­nis has em­braced Chicken Deli.

This ac­tu­ally is not the first time that Den­nis was ex­posed to the Bacolod style of chicken inasal. He ex­plains that his Dad, Abe­lardo Les­lie Ho, is from Dumaguete, ne­gros Ori­en­tal. Dad would of­ten go to Bacolod, and he would men­tion Chicken Deli when talk­ing about his trips.

Den­nis re­mem­bered those sto­ries when he had the op­por­tu­nity to travel to Bacolod. While in the City of Smiles, he got his fill of inasal. His taste buds mem­o­rized every fla­vor and tasty nu­ance, hop­ing that such de­li­cious serv­ings would be avail­able in Metro Manila.

His wish was granted when Chicken Deli es­tab­lished its first Metro Manila branch in

2011. And by a stroke of serendip­ity, he would be tapped to be­come its cur­rent en­dorser.

As far as chicken parts are con­cerned, Den­nis con­fesses to be­ing a breast man him­self. But his pref­er­ence for chicken breast, he clar­i­fies, is when he is on a strict diet and has to watch his calo­rie in­take. Oth­er­wise, he likes to sink his teeth into dark meat, es­pe­cially when cov­ered with chicken skin. He grins as he ad­mits: “Masarap din yung may ma­lu­tong na balat, eh. nan­dun yung fla­vor. Gusto ko ta­laga may balat kasi nan­dun yung lasa.”

Apart from chicken inasal, Chicken Deli serves other Pi­noy fa­vorites like Le­chon Kawali, Beef Kare Kare, Sini­gang na Ban­gus, Pork Sini­gang, Pork Sisig, Chicken Sisig and Pork Liempo. There are Chicken Deli-cious Meals: in­di­vid­ual serv­ings of grilled chicken, pork, beef, and fish, all ac­com­pa­nied by free soup and kanin-all-you-can. End the meals with Panghima­gas like the orig­i­nal Halo Deli and its new ver­sion of Pi­noy Halo-halo, Turon Sticks, Sago’t Gu­la­man, Leche Flan, and pip­ing hot Piyaya baked es­pe­cially on site.

To truly en­joy the inasal ex­pe­ri­ence, it is rec­om­mended that din­ers eat the chicken with their hands. no prob­lem for this time­less lead­ing man, who says “Mas masarap ku­main ng inasal pag ki­naka­may.” Even on a ro­man­tic date? “Sure!” he ex­claims.

Light mo­ment aside, Den­nis is thrilled about be­ing an am­bas­sador for Chicken Deli: “Ex­cited ako na mag­ing part ng Chicken Deli fam­ily. Kasi marami pa ang hindi nakakak­i­lala sa Chicken Deli and gusto ko, kahit pa­paano makat­u­long ako bi­lang in­stru­ment para ma-share ko sa iba at matik­man nila yung orig­i­nal at maka­pag­bi­gay ng saya sa kanila ha­bang ku­makain.”

Chicken Deli branches now with over 50 branches na­tion­wide.
