Aida's @ Manokan Country, Bacolod City



After spending the day in Guimaras, we arrived in Bacolod in the evening. We checked in at Ong Bun Pension House to freshened up and rest a little before we went out for dinner at Manokan Country.



Manokan Country is a strip of restaurants that serve Bacolod Chicken Inasal. We went to Aida's, which is most popular in the area. All of the restos are open-air but properly vendilated. They grill as you order so it would take a while for your orders to arrive. Aida's also has hand washing areas in case you want to eat with your hands.


We had Pechopak (Php 75), Paa (Php 70), Chorizo (Php 20) and Bul-o (Php 20).

I got the Paa, it was really flavorful and delicious! A piece was not enough for me though. I should have gotten another piece, or the Pechopak, which is bigger. We also enjoyed the Chorizo, which reminded me of the grilled soriso from Cebu's Larsian.

A visit to Bacolod would not be complete if you wouldn't visit Manokan Country. Nothing is more authentic than chicken inasal served here. The food is affordable too.

Manokan Country is located behind SM Bacolod. Landmark is Bongbong's Pasalubong Center and Andok's. We almost got lost on our way there since the locals we asked were kinda clueless on where it was located. Nevertheless, it's one of the reasons why I want to return to Bacolod.

    1. Yes, the original is way better. :) I think JT's Manukan version is the closest to the original among the ones available here in Manila. :)

  5. Good job in going to the land of chicken inasal :D !!! My brother has gone to Bacolod so many times and all he said was that the food is to die for.

    Some chicken inasal, maybe some barbecue, and an ice cold beer for me :D
