“Juicy Chicken Inasal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

There were five of us, my wife, two young daughters, and my mother-in-law. We ordered all the chicken parts on the menu: inasal na petso (breast), paa (thigh), wings. Plus pork barbecue and batsoy (noodle soup). We did not have to wait long for the food to be served. The chicken and pork barbecue were juicy and tender. There were all the elements that go with inasal (roasted) food: the staff provided siling labuyo and kalamansi. There was vinegar and soy sauce on the table so that you can make your own "sawsawan" (dip). There was a faucet, liquid soap and paper napkins to wash so you can use your hands to eat. The open air and wooden tables added to the ambiance of eating the Filipino way. The prices were reasonable. My picky youngest daughter liked the batsoy.
JT's Manukan is not located inside a mall so you really have to make it your destination. There are men in yellow t-shirts to help with the parking.
On the downside, my daughters, accustomed to the glass and plastic interiors of fast food chains, found JT's Manukan "hindi malinis" (messy). Actually, the restaurant is tolerably clean but the staff have to do double time to keep the dust away because of the open air venue. For example, the bottles of vineger and toyo were dusty. Aside from this, although we did not see Joel Torre or any celebrity, it was a pleasant lunch.
