Who doesn’t love chicken inasal? Located on the second floor of the Paragon Square building along Donato Pison Avenue in San Rafael, Iloilo is Masskara Chicken Inasal. Judging from the name, I am guessing this restaurant has roots in Bacolod, the City of Smiles. Bacolod, the capital of the province of Negros Occidental, is known for its inasal specialty.
Chicken inasal is a Filipino variant of roast chicken. A ‘petso’ (breast) or ‘paa’ (thigh) is marinated in a special mixture then grilled over hot coals whilst basted with marinade. The dish is served with rice along with calamansi, soy sauce, and vinegar. Now, imagine drizzling your rice with chicken oil. At Masskara Chicken Inasal, you can have your rice plain, fried, or topped with garlic.
