Chicken Inasal the Way I Like It

Really great chicken inasal experience. There are several establishments in the area and we went to Aida's right where the big chicken statue is. I tried not to get the chicken oil but couldn't resist. To me it upped the flavor of the chicken inasal. A fellow from Bacolod told us we were "brave... read more

Located near the pier and SM Bacolod, Manokan Country is a stretch of restaurants specializing in Bacolod's famous chicken inasal. If you want a taste of the real inasal this is the place for you! I would recommend eating at Aida's or Nena's Beth. They serve choices of pecho (breast), paa (leg), baticolon (gizzard), atay (liver) and we aslo tried... More

Manukan Country is a group of Chicken Restaurants. Most of them serve the famous bacolod chicken cooked in the Inasal way, which the city us known for. I have yet to try all stores here and in all honesty I do not want to since I feel Aida's Manukan is the best chicken inasal i've ever tasted in the Philippines... More

Manukan Country is a stretch of restaurants, we were fortunate to get a spot at Beth Nene's. Some tips for the best dining experience. 1. Do not arrive really really hungry...since inasal is grilled on a per order basis, be prepared to wait at least 30 mins for food to be served, and if you come here really hungry and... More

Eating at the Manukan Country in Bacolod City is one of the must-dos for tourists. It will offer you one of the most authentic native experiences of eating chicken inasal BUT be warned tourists. The following is what you will encounter: 1. Dirty surroundings - Manukan Country is located near the port area (and you know what they say about... More

Manukan Country is always on my list every time I visit Bacolod. The trip wouldn't be complete without eating their super delish and juicy chicken inasal paired with my all time favorite garlic rice with chicken oil. I wasn't sure if the chicken won't spoil if I bring some back to Cebu so I just tried one, and voila! It... More

Bacolod claim to fame is their chicken, their BBQ chicken. If you want real authentic, out of this world chicken then you MUST come here. I still dream about it. It's that good!

Manukan Country is a strip of stalls that offer Chicken Inasal. The one we frequented is Nena's Beth. There are a lot of "Nena's ---" stalls. The owners must be related or something. Nena's Beth occupies three stalls and yet the place gets packed! On busy days - like during Masskara festival, service can get really really slow. It's worth... More

Manukan Country is a must-visit, and I never skip going to Aida's everytime. The "picho" or "paa" are succulent and always served freshly grilled. The whole area is busy and makes visitors feel the bacolod beat. Excellent value for money.
