What to order when you’re tired of cooking for the holidays

Here’s how to keep the celebration going on a budget

With Christmas over but the holiday season still in full swing, maybe you’re not quite ready to go back to your usual fare and still want something notable to mark the season. This is where good fast food comes in handy—it offers  the fun of an indulgent meal without the price tag associated with fancier feasts.

Kenny Rogers Roasters

Roasted means healthier, but Kenny Rogers also means food to drool over.  Aside from the chicken, its Grilled Fish and Light & Easy Plates alongside an assortment of healthy salads and high-fiber meals mean guilt-free indulgence.. Oh, and don’t pass on the signature corn muffins or their juicy ribs and steaks.


For those of you who didn’t know, KFC is considered a bit of a seasonal specialty in Japan. The story behind it is amusing, but you have to admit that they could well be on to something. As with Jollibee, it shares the same essence of having bountiful meals with those near and dear to you.

Apart from the classic bucketful of mouth-watering juicy original recipe chicken, the Colonel can crank up the heat to help keep you warm during a long, cold night.

…To be perfectly clear we’re talking about spicy chicken seasoning.


The vibrant color palette and rich flavors already make dining here feel like a party. The food doesn’t disappoint either. So, if you’re feeling a bit down from the weather a nice, warm bowl of Beef Wonton Mami will perk you right back up, while the  Sweet and Sour Fish brings just the right kind of zing to freshen things up.


Going back to another classic, there’s no denying that Jollibee’s Chickenjoy is a staple Filipino fast food, and a no-brainer go-to for when you have hungry mouths to feed that aren’t willing to settle for bland and dry fare. Between its  much-beloved fried chicken and the selection of burgers, fries, and hotdogs you can get on the cheap,  it’s an easy solution to the problem of feeding a lot of people for not a lot of cash. 

And let’s be honest, you’ve been craving a bucket of Chickenjoy for a while now.

Yellow Cab

Pizza is essentially the perfect food, and with Yellow Cab serving up unanimous favorites like Manhattan Meatlovers or New York’s Finest, it’s no surprise that this place is on loads of people’s speed dials.


Wendy’s Signature Chili over a Baked Potato is just what you need to weather the cooler temperatures around this time of year, and the fact that it’s packed with flavor just adds to the appeal. Also, its Holiday Steakhouse Burger is all the luscious flavors of a choice cut without the sticker shock.

You don’t need to go to a steakhouse for flavor like this! #wendysph #wendyssteakhouse #everydaysteak #wendyslover #nowthatsbetter
