... bbq chicken for our early breakfast. no frills eatery. don't expect too much in terms of ambiance. this is a budget place to eat but the chicken bbq is full of flavour, worthy of a visit. just in front of SM mall near jetty port.

So this was the first place I went to after checking in. I ordered oysters which are very fresh and very cheap. I also had inasal which is very juicy and oh so good! Must try so get ready to order a cup of rice.

Manokan Country is located beside SM Bacolod, this is one of the eating places that's frequently visited by locals and tourists. Nena's beth is noticeable for its spacious dining area, and it also accommodates early orders for lunch.

If you want to taste the authentic chicken inasal then come here. Though it takes a while for the food to arrive, that is because they cook it from scratch, and this makes it so worth the wait. Compared to other commercial chicken places, the chicken is cooked tender and juicy. Be prepared to eat with your hands- makes dining... More

I have tried a lot of establishments offering chicken inasal both in Manila and every time I visit my family in Bacolod and by far this place has the best Chicken Inasal I have ever tasted. I always order a thigh part, a wing and chicken "behind". The taste is consistent across every part. It's juicy and tender. the "sinamak"... More

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!
