I was intrigued with JT's Manukan Grille for quite a while. I have read so many good reviews about this resto owned by the popular actor Joel Torre. JT's Manukan uses only Ilonggo ingredients for the authentic inasal experience.
The place is a simple hang-out venue with both open air and closed areas. Posters of the actor-owner's previous movie projects are displayed on the walls.
My friend and I ordered Pecho (Php 90) and Paa (Php 86) with Garlic Rice (Php 25).
For those who aren't familiar with chicken parts, pecho is chicken breast while paa is chicken leg and thigh.
It took a while for our orders to arrive but it was worth the wait.
First thing I did was check if the chicken was thoroughly done, and surprised that it was. The chicken was so delicious that I didn't realize I already consumed everything. The chicken was flavorful even on the inside.
Did I like it? No. I LOVED IT!
I have tried almost every chicken inasal out there, but this is the best one I've tried.
No need for so much chicken oil, the inasal tastes just right. And it's very affordable. :)
I'm going to drag my other friends here soon.
