Chicken was succulent and juicy! You could savor the marinade! Great pairing with San Miguel beer and dipped in locally spiced vinegar! Be sure to request not the pre cooked chicken but the uncooked version which would take a while but worth the wait! Pork bbq was ok! Place reviewed was at 14th Lacson Street. Place much cleaner, newer and... More

It's a sin not to eat chicken inasal when one is in Bacolod. And I have few favorite restos that serve chicken inasal. One of which is Nena's. On our last day in Bacolod, I had pecho and baticolon for lunch. Namit gid!

If you were to visit Bacolod, this should be your number one in the list. This is where it all started, chicken inasal the best ever. Chicken cooked to perfection at a very low price. Best to eat early as it gets busy at lunch. Nothing beats the best authentic chicken inasal at Manokan Country

Delicious chicken inasal however I'd like to suggest that regular cleaning be undertaken so that aside from good food, there should be good ambiance too.

a must visit when in Bacolod. I love the vibrant and noisy ambiance. More so, the idea that you have to eat with your hands is perfect especially if you want to appear like a local. The chicken and the oysters -- oh so good. Will visit again!
