Who doesn’t love the classic chicken inasal? According to the book “A Quick Guide to Filipino Food & Cooking” by Cris C. Abiva, Inasal is Visayan for barbecued or spit-roasted.
This cooking method starts with the chicken undergoing a serious marination. To make it even tastier, the marinated chicken can be left overnight and cooked the following day. The marinated chicken is then skewered on a spit which can either be wooden or metal and is slowly cooked over open fire.
With this cooking method and a distinct flavour, the chicken inasal easily became a Pinoy favourite. Filipinos from all walks of life love to eat this delicious meal. In fact, there are various restaurants around the country that offers the Western Visayas region’s famous chicken inasal one of which is JT’s Manukan Grille.

Various cafés and restaurants offering delicious food with great ambiance can also be found throughout those areas. As mentioned, it was a gloomy, rainy Saturday. We were looking for a place emitting good vibes and great food. So, how does burger and fries sound?
One Sunday morning, I woke up craving for a deliciously sweet hazelnut chocolate spread. Yes, I was in the mood for Nutella and I had to fulfill that craving. With the help of Google, I stumbled upon Pancake House. Thus, I had my early lunch with my grandmother and my ninong at their branch in Northridge Plaza, Congressional Avenue, Quezon City. Pancake House The Pancake House was established in 1970. Back then, only plain and flavored pancakes and waffles were served. At present, Pancake House continues to serve their well-known pancakes and waffles along with an array of exciting dishes. Despite the additional food in the menu, some things never change.
