8 Fast Food Items That Are No Longer Available

There are some food items that really leave an impact on us and they happen to turn into our favorite dishes. Whenever we crave for their taste, we can easily return to that particular restaurant and order them. Sadly, we fail to realize that these items won't be on the menu forever.

My recent experience with Chowking has left me wondering where their delicious dishes are now and if they would ever make a comeback. I was very surprised to discover that Chowking no longer served Congee or Beef Brisket-- some of the only dishes I eat in that fast food chain. This inspired me to create this list: fast food items that are no longer on the menu.

Do you have something to add to this? Feel free to comment below!

Greenwich's Chicken ala King

The first item on this list is Greenwich's Chicken ala King. I know a lot of people who love to eat this dish from Greenwich so I was surprised that it hasn't been on their menu for a few years now. I think the last time I saw it was in 2013.

Speaking of Chicken ala King...

It could be just the branch in Cebu-- but when I checked out French Baker, they no longer offered their famous Chicken ala King on a flaky shell. I'm not sure if other branches in Manila still offer this item on their menu.

Another item that has been removed from Greenwich's menu is their crispy Glazed Chicken. This item on their menu sprouted at the time when soy honey glazed fried chicken became a fad in Manila. With restaurants like Bon Chon, Manang's Chicken, Chicken Charlie, and many more offered this, Greenwich joined in on the bandwagon and offered something affordable for the masses.

On the plus side, it could be the same taste as Jollibee's new Glazed Chicken... Has anyone tried it yet?

Chowking's Beef Brisket

This turned out to be a huge disappointment for me. After not dining at Chowking for a long time, I was surprised to discover that they had already removed their Beef Brisket of their menu indefinitely. The thought of it saddened me because it was something I readily ordered whenever we ate at Chowking since I was young. I remember watching 'Mara Clara the Movie' with my mom and cousins and we ate at Chowking just before watching the movie. That was the dish I ate.

Before it was phased out, the taste and quantity of the beef had already declined. So I guess this was something Chowking had to do.

Chowking's Congee

Surprisingly, I was so shocked to discover that Chowking stopped serving their congee. I always took this dish for granted because I knew it was one of the staples that the fast food served. During the time that I was sick with amoebiasis, I wanted to eat congee so we decided to eat at Chowking. I was sure shocked when the server told me it was already phased out.

Chowking's Chow Pao

Another dish from Chowking that's no longer available is their Chow Pao. I particularly loved their Chinese Sausage Chow Pao and would eat that whenever I wanted something light and to-go. Sadly, this won't be on their menu anymore. Their Happy Pao selection is also being threatened to be removed from their menu.

Burger King's Cheesy Tots

One of the few things I love about Burger King is their Cheesy Tots. Sadly, it's been removed from the menu for a few years already.

Max's Corner Bakery's Rhumbars

Inside Max's restaurants, you'll find a small area where they sell some of their baked products. One of the items that I favored from that display was their Rhumbars. Ever since my dad died in 2012, I swore never to eat in Max's again until I was ready (that was his favorite restaurant). But a few months ago, I decided it was time to go back when I discovered my bf never ate there before. When I looked for their rhumbars, they told me it was no longer available. Even the waitresses were shocked with this because it turned out to be a bestseller.

The best thing to do now is to find a close second.

What about you? Do you have any favorite dish that's no longer being carried by your favorite fast food? Share it with us!
