8 Secrets of the Authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal

Paa (P88) or Pecho (88) Authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal.

Do you know that there is an authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal in the heart of the Makati District? Two of the authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal places in Manila are Joel Torre's (JT's) Manukan in Greenhills and Bacolod Chicken House Express in Makati. These are the two places where people from Bacolod satisfy their craving for an authentic chicken inasal. Here are the 8 secrets of the authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal:

1. The authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal place cooks the chicken 100% raw which makes it juicier than the commercialized version. Some of the commercialized Bacolod Chicken Inasal places use chicken that is already half-cooked (or worse cooked already and just reheated).

2. The secret in the flavor of the Chicken Inasal is in the orange atsuete oil sauce.

3. One of the Bacolod favorites is the Isol (P38). In Bacolod, Isol means atras and it refers to the chicken ass. The right way to eat isol is to put everything in your mouth and eat it (including the tail bone).

Other Bacolod favorites are the Baticolon (P30) and Atay (P40).

4. Grilled Liempo (P65) marinate sauce is good but the quality of meat is poor. They should find a better meat supplier for their liempo.

5. Enjoy Chicken Inasal with a sauce of Sinamak Vinegar, Kalamansi, Soy Sauce and Chili. Always make sure that sinamak vinegar is available.

6. The best way to enjoy the rice is to put a little bit of the orange atsuete sauce and a pinch of rock salt.

7. To complete the authentic Manukan experience, eat Bacolod Chicken Inasal with your hands.

8. Carlo's Bacolod Chicken House Express is one of the authentic Bacolod Chicken Houses in Manila! It is located in the Savana Market in front of Shopwise Makati. The resto is owned by Jose Carlo Cajili who is the son of the owner of the Main Bacolod Chicken House in Bacolod City.
