Restaurant Review: Inasal Chicken Bacolod

Published on March 19, 2014

I always get confused with Bacolod Chicken Inasal and Inasal Chicken Bacolod. Obviously, both restaurants offer chicken inasal. So when my husband and I talk, we refer to the two restaurants using colors. Bacolod Chicken Inasal is the yellow one, while Inasal Chicken Bacolod is the green one. Both reference the color of their logos. Meron bang Chicken Bacolod Inasal? Anong kulay nun? Harharhar!!!

My husband and I found ourselves back to SM Manila as I needed to update my bank records. On a side note, Andrade na ako!!! May laban na si Boyet sa yaman ko. Char! :p Anyway, because it took us forever to update my bank records and request for my bank statements, hubby was already getting a little grumpy and wanted me to decide right away where we should eat. I can’t remember the last time I went to SM Manila that’s why I am no longer familiar with the restaurant choices. I had to improvise and said the first thing that came into my mind – Inasal Chicken Bacolod. This is actually our favorite go-to place after a tiring badminton session at YMCA. Hihi!

And just because my husband can’t start a meal without a bowl of hot soup, he got his favorite La Paz Batchoy. This was definitely the best way to warm our tummies. It is topped with egg, lots of chicharon and spring onions. Although it was delicious, it pales in comparison with the La Paz Batchoy from Bacolod Chicken Inasal. I would have wanted Inasal Chicken Bacolod’s version to be meatier and tastier.

A visit to Inasal Chicken Bacolod is incomplete without having their chicken inasal. If I remember it correctly, my favorite chicken inasal comes from this place. That’s why I am not sure why the chicken inasal we got was on the dry side. Even my husband said that Mang Inasal’s version is now better than our old favorite. =(

Because I wanted variety in our meal, I opted to skip chicken inasal and got spareribs instead.

The serving was big. I think I shared half of it to my husband. If you notice in the photo, one end of the meat was really charred. But I didn’t mind at all because that part was just pure fat. Although I had to skip eating that part, the rest of it was perfect. The meat-fat ratio is just about right which is probably why it remained moist. More importantly, it is very tasty. No need for dip or anything.

Both our meals come with unlimited rice. If my memory serves me right, they didn't offer unlimited rice during our last visit. But I guess Inasal Chicken Bacolod is adapting to the changing needs of its market. :)
