Whenever I am away, I often think about my loving family, good friends and chicken inasal! Food has always been a part of my daydreams. Hahah! :) Chicken Inasal is a famous grilled chicken dish from Bacolod. This is not your ordinary chicken barbecue! A lot of restaurants in the country and even abroad have inasal on the menu, but nothing beats the original. Here in Bacolod, the chicken is marinated in a special secret sauce, then grilled to perfection!
Days after my arrival, my family and I had a dinner at Chicken House. It felt so good to be back in my favorite chicken inasal restaurant after 17 long months. The moment we placed our order, I excitedly made my own dip; a squeeze of kalamansi, a little vinegar, no chili and a spoon of soy sauce.
A few minutes later, the wait staff brought the food to our table. All I have dreamed of for the last 17 months was finally in front of me! I devoured the excellent combination of inasal and garlic rice. The grilled chicken was very tasty and juicy. The sauce I mixed earlier made the succulent chicken meat even more appetizing.
Ed and I placed an additional order of chicken skin. Hello, cholesterol! We were looking forward to four sticks of grilled chicken skin, but four plates of crispy fried chicken skin came instead. It was a bit of misunderstanding with the wait staff. The dish was delicious anyway, no need to fret.
Chicken House have several branches in the city. The one at Art District in Mandalagan is my fave. As Bacolod is also famous for Masskara Festival, the restaurant is decorated with huge colorful masks. Good food and a festive ambiance make Chicken House a great venue for a family get together.
It was a night of family bonding with delectable food. No matter where I go, no matter what I eat, my heart and my tummy will always lead me back to Bacolod Chicken House!
