BonChon lunch while working from home

It has become an all-too-familiar lament among us parents who are working from home: juggling all the tasks we are supposed to deliver for our jobs and overseeing the kiddos who are still adjusting to distance learning leave us very little time to prepare tasty meals for the fam to enjoy.

BonChon, Sta. Lucia

Fortunately, a solution to this quandary is just a few phone taps away, thanks to our trusty food delivery apps.

On one such busy day, Hubby decided to order our lunch from the BonChon branch nearby.

BonChon, Sta. Lucia

This chicken resto chain was founded on 2002 by entrepreneur Jinduk Seh. After spending two years perfecting the soy garlic and spicy glaze for his fried chicken, he opened his first resto BonChon (or “my hometown”) in Busan, South Korea. By 2010, it has made its way to the Philippines, just in time to help sow the seeds of the Korean obsession of Pinoys.

Considering the fam’s considerable collective appetite, Hubby decided to get 6 pieces (Php462) + 8 pieces (Php613) assorted chicken pieces, all with our favorite soy garlic glaze.

Giving in to his daughter’s request, he also ordered a Mandu Box Meal (Php199). Mandu are basically Korean dumplings. BonChon’s version is deep-fried and glazed with soy garlic, similar to the chicken.

All we had to do is make sure we have lots of steamed rice ready for our meal.

As luck would have it, my morning meeting extended to lunchtime so my baby girl assembled a plate for me to eat while on telecon (my brain can’t function on an empty stomach, you know!)

So that’s it: the whole fam satisfied with a tasty meal, quick and easy!

Take a pizza break with Papa John’s BOGO bundle

Since the start of the community quarantine, Hubby and I have been lucky enough to be among those able to work from home.

Aside from the greater safety this afforded to us, we were also able to avoid the hassles in commuting to our respective workplaces.

However, once we’re in the zone, we do have the tendency to tune out other stimuli, sometimes even afternoon hunger pangs.

Fortunately, Hubby made a note to have a pizza break during our work-from-day. Taking advantage of Papa John’s Buy One Get One (BOGO) Deal, he had two 12-inch pizzas for just Php569 delivered right to our doorstep:

Tropical Toss. Tasty pepperoni with shredded onions and diced tomato on top of mozzarella on a fresh oven-baked crust.

Double Meat. Italian sausages and meats bits interspersed with pineapple pieces and anchovies also on top of mozzarella on a fresh oven-baked crust.

Together with the kiddos, we took a much-needed and well-deserved pizza break to get us energized for the rest of our workday.
