Potpot And The New Chick in Town

There's a new chick in our town. Chick - short for chicken - chicken inasal to be exact.I first fell in love with it in Bacolod Chicken Inasal when they opened a branch in Paseo de Santa Rosa near Laguna Technopark. “Inasal” translates to “inihaw” in Tagalog and “grilled” in English. They then opened a branch a few kilometers away from our village. Unfortunately the volume of poeple eating there was not enough to sustain the franchise so it closed. The closest chicken joint is KFC. Jollibee and Mc Donalds are also there with their own chicken (kanya kanyang manok). But I want my neighborhood chicken inasal! Then came the newest chicken joint in our town. From across the shores of Bacolod and over the northern-most tip of the land of Guimaras - Mang Inasal of Iloilo. Google! este Yahoo! pala, pwede ring Yehey!


Mang Inasal is the famous barbeque fast-food chain from Iloilo.Their tag line: "Laging mabilis, laging masarap, laging abot kaya." Their mission: "To be the number 1 barbeque fast food chain in the Philippines."

Does anyone know why chicken inasal have yellow juice coming out of it?

What about Potpot? Well, Potpot's full name is PotDog.


If you like fish balls, try what PotDog offers. My family became aquainted with PotDog when we attended Negosyong Pinoy in SM Megamall last month. Their balls are no ordinary balls. No fish balls here. They have crab claw, lobster ball, potato slice, hotdog puff, crab egg, prawn ball, crispy siomai, crablet, seafood veggie, shark's fin siomai, cuttlefish ball and squid nugget. Oks di ba!

Chewy yummy lobster balls


We bought one frozen pack and enjoyed more of it at home.



Fried siomai and seafood veggie are also yummy. We'll try the others next time.

I do love the "la paz batchoy" of Bacolod Chicken Inasal." It was even good to eat with their chicken inasal.
