One thing about Mang Inasal. I don't find them in any of the major malls. Madalas stand alone stores sila...
there's one in SM fairview.
ang hindi ko mahanap, yung slice n dice 99P steakhouse, hehe. wala kahit saang SM, hehehe. ayaw ata ni henry sy kasi malulugi yung steak joint nya sa foodcourt (which, i'm told, is owned and franchised by SM).
Nagkalat na nga yang Mang Inasal na yan sa SM malls. I think meron din sa SM Valenzuela. I had my lunch there together with the court sheriff, kasi katabing-katabi lang ng SM yung Regional Trial Court. Trineat namin yung mokong, kasi we had to facilitate yung foreclosure proceedings we filed against a delinquent borrower.
Mas mahal ng konti yung price nila compared to mainstream fastfood outlets like Jollibee or McDo. Total bill for 3 people was almost P800, tatlong package meal, plus 3 halo-halo and 1 fried bangus. Pero kung matakaw ka sa rice, sulit na din, kasi "bottomless", hehehe
I am not sure how this chain of restaurants is related to Chicken Bacolod here in BF Paranaque, but they practically offer the same menu..... One more thing, Chicken Bacolod is in existence long before Mang Inasal came out in the market..... Moreover, sa akin at sa aming mga engineers,- the best pa rin ang Chicken Bacolod..... You've got to try it!
kumakain ako sa chicken bacolod sa bf paranaque pero kasi hindi libre rice pati mejo masikip parking jan eh (good thing puwede pumarada sa shakeys sa tapat o kaya dun sa parang ruins) hehe
sa mang inasal naman sa malapit sa sucat ang problema matarik parking lot pero di ako dun pumaparada sa loob ng leanas na mall (tama ba spelling)
Ordered PM#2 (chicken pecho + 1 cup rice wrapped in a leaf) and a bottled water. Total Php 119.00. Water was Php 22 so the meal itself is Php 97.00.
But when it comes to dining ambiance, the company cut too many corners. Standalone stores (not located inside malls) usually have no aircon so the vehicular smoke from traffic jams usually mixes with your food (depending on the location).
There's a place that cost less and offer more for the price of chicken. S&R. 1/4 chicken (pick the upper "pecho" part) + a cup of rice = Php 89.00. Chicken size is on the "big" side and not unlike those frozen Bounty Fresh or Magnolia chicken from the supermarket.
Mang Inasal is different from Bacolod Chicken Inasal....iba talaga ang lasa parang compare mo ang night and day...Mang Inasal is from Iloilo City...paano maging chicken Bacolod ang Mang Inasal.
Swerte lang talaga ang Mang Inasal patok sila sa masa and their concept of having a fastfood style really made them a billion peso in just under 5 years.
For me hindi masarap ang Mang Inasal...medyo matamis. If you want the real Bacolod inasal...go to JT's Inasal.
