Masskara and Bacolod Food Guide: Chicken Inasal


Masskara  and Bacolod Food Guide 

Aida’s Chicken – Manokan Country

Located near SM Bacolod, this place offers a fantastic taste of the classic chicken inasal as well as other chicken-based food and meals. Though it may appear like a carinderia at first because it was how it was designed, the classic looks of it must not hinder you from trying out their special chicken meals. The piece may vary from as low as 25 pesos which is a chicken skin or also locally known as bul-o. This is the favorite of a lot of people, that is why you won’t have to wonder if this place is packed with people, trying to order their meals most especially on the weekend. From the classic chicken inasal down to talaba, they got it all for you.

Nenas Beth – Manokan Country

The aromatic smell of their chicken makes them stand-out than the rest of other manokan food hubs in the area. More than the chicken inasal and the crispy chicken skin, they also have other food such as spareribs and other select parts of the chicken such as thigh, breast and chicken bottom.

Chicken House

Another important chicken hub is the chicken house. The name itself speaks for its legacy of providing sumptuous chicken meals to both locals and foreigners alike. Thus, the unique and fresh taste of their chicken is something that you should give a shot.

Masskara Chicken

A much high-scale food hub which offers a much tender and juicy chicken is the Masskara Chicken. They also have chicken skin as well as isaw or chicken intestine for meals. These are all made cleanly, and you have nothing to worry about. Just get your vinegar as a sauce and give it a try.

Bacolod Seafood
