Aidas Chicken Inasal: Bacolod's Manukan Country Pride (Makati Cinema Square Chino Roces)

I'm an avid fan of Bacolod chicken inasal.  Whenever I am alone and on a budget, it is always my comfort food.  To be honest, I've been wanting to eat at Aida's Chicken since I've read about it from famous blogs.  But, it was difficult for me to coincidentally be around Makati Cinema Square area.

I haven't been to Makati Cinema Square since I was watched a movie "The Indian in the Cupboard" with relatives a very long time ago.   As I was writing this, I'm surprised that I can still remember bits of the movie and my movie experience.   I recall, it was my aunt who treated us.   We've never heard of it before so I'm glad that I discovered it.   I liked the movie although it was a more serious and dramatic than the cartoon "Toy Story".

Apart from the facade, I didn't feel any nostalgia from the place.  It was really run down.  I had to ask the guard where Aidas is located because it was not visible at all.  All along I kept on wondering why it chose to be located there in the first place.   You have to pass by cellphone and random stalls before reaching the restaurant.  To my surprise, there were foreigner and family guests dining there.

That heightened my expectations despite the fairly unappealing ambience.  


Executive Meals w/ Rice & Soup

Inasal Pecho Executive Meal (175 php)
So here it is - Inasal Pecho.  If you choose the executive meal it comes with broth soup, side dish and rice.  Prior to digging in, I could already tell from the aroma and visual appeal - yellowing color, glaze and char-marks that it was going to be delicious.  

Inasal Pecho (120 php)
Call it gluttony but one is not enough for me so I ordered the ala carte too.  It was really good that my companion who is a very picky eater and prefers only Chinese dishes enjoyed this too.

Aida's Ilonggo Express (195 php)
The Aida's Ilonggo Express is similar to what I know as gising-gising.  Perhaps, I'm biased to coconut milk based dishes so I gladly indulged this to the last bit.  However, I think the price is unjustified.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
I loved Aidas Chicken Inasal but I realized that chicken inasal is something I eat whenever convenient so I don't see myself going out my way to dine here again.
