JT's Manukan Grille

I was intrigued by 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.

The first thing I did was check if the chicken was thoroughly done and was 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.

There is no need for so much chicken oil because the inasal tastes just right. And it's very affordable.

I'm going to drag my other friends here soon.

    There's so many Inasal restos nowadays. I can't say I'm an avid fan, but maybe it's because I haven't tried the "best" yet. I'll take your word for it and try this place out when I can! Hopefully there's a branch near us. :P

  6. Thanks Mary! :) There's a branch in McKinley Hills. :D

  7. Ever since I tried their chicken back in their Gilmore place where it had its humble beginnings over 5 years ago... Man oh man, this was one of the best chicken inasal around!

    Trust someone who hails from Bacolod to know how to make good chicken inasal :)

  8. Hi Ray! I agree, for chicken inasal, Ilonggo knows best! :D
