The contract signing ceremonies happened last February 15,2018 at the Cabuyao branch of Boy Kanin. Aside from getting the elusive chance to win the title. This year’s big winner will also get a Boy Kanin franchise worth a cool 1 million pesos.

Boy Kanin got a lot of tasty value meals like tocino with rice, longganisa with rice and Filipino style burritos.  Not all branches of Boy Kanin have their ( crispy pork pata) deep fried pork knuckles with condiments of soy sauce, vinegar with chopped chilies, onions and garlic.

One must also try their pork sisig with red chilies and calamansi.

salabat tea

One also try their ginger drink ( salabat tea) the ginger does not have an after taste compared to other ginger teas in the local market.  It was home-brewed by the proprietor. The sarsa meals like bikstek, adobo, teriyaki and boy pares meal are worth tasting.  All time favorite meal combination like Tapsilog, Tocilog, Longsilog and Liemposilog are a sure treat to all lovers of rice and combo meals.

My favorite will be their tocino and longganisa. Not too sweet.

The company is open to franchise and one can reach the  them at their official FB page: https://www.facebook.com/tropangboykanin/
