The restaurant chain took notice of his post.
A man's post regarding his love for a chicken meal has gone viral and has even netted him a year's supply of his favourite dish.
According to a Filipino Times report, Jeremy Layson posted a status on Facebook claiming why a local restaurant chain -- Mang Inasal -- should be the Philippines' national symbol for patriotism. He posted the status in light of a half-Filipino celebrity's claim that she is 100 per cent Filipino by citing her love for sinigang - another local dish as proof.
Layson wrote: "Eating at Mang Inasal is as pinoy as pinoy can get. A half Filipino would probably eat using spoon and fork, but a true Filipino with the blood of Lapu-lapu and Andres Bonifacio will eat with bare hand."
In the lengthy status, he goes on to commend the restaurant's services and hospitality. His epiphany has since gone viral with over 11,300 shares and almost 6,000 comments. His 'patriotic' status about the restaurant was also noticed by the chain himself. In another post, Layson shared a message sent to him by the company's Facebook page. The message said:
"Thank you very much for your patronage! We are very touched with your post and we would like to say thank you. We saw that you like our PM1 meal; that being said, we'd like to give you a year's supply of the PM1 meal that you can enjoy for free once a week for the entire year."
In his last witty way of saying thanks to chain for their gift he claimed that the restaurant is the 'true saviour of humanity.'
