( Almost any Filipino would agree that rice is life, but there's also a special place on our craving list for fried-chicken sandwiches. The way its pillowy buns make way to a crisp and juicy, deeply savory fried-chicken fillet—plus extras like shredded cabbage, mayonnaise, and the like—totally satisfies. We've got our share of go-to spots in Manila, but if you happen to be in Cebu, here's where you can get your fix: Don John's is a shop with outdoor-dining branches in Lahug and Mabolo, and we're telling you, their fried-chicken sandwiches are unreal.

Try not to drool over this Cebuano shop's fried chicken sandwiches:

Don John's gives you three ways to satisfy your hankering. The Don John's Original Chicken Sandwich (P190/solo, P245/with Crinkle Fries) is the most basic, but it's absolutely no bore as it features two hunky chicken-thigh fillets that makes a resounding crunch against the soft potato bun cradling it. The Don John's Deluxe Chicken Sandwich (P210/solo, P255/with Crinkle Fries) takes things up a notch with the addition of lettuce, cheese, and their own Don Sauce for extra creaminess and crispness.

If heat is your middle name, the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich (P210/solo, P255/with Crinkle Fries) is your best bet. This heavyweight sandwich is available in four levels—from the completely un-spicy Plain Jane to the Mild, Hot, and Reaper—and pairs their signature chicken thigh fillets with coleslaw for a creamy-crisp contrast, and a blue-cheese sauce that makes for an even more umami bite.
