Mang Inasal

6 Mar

Have you tried Mang Inasal yet? I encourage you to! It’s one of the fastest growing fastfood chain here in the Philippines and for good reason. They serve great chicken “inasal”, dirt cheap!

The PM2 meal.

I can’t remember the first time I ate at Mang Inasal. All I can remember is that I fell in love with their chicken after my first bite. For only Php99, you get almost half a chicken (my favorite part is the Pecho or breast) unlimited rice and soup. Yes, you read it right. Unlimited rice. Beat that, Jollibee!

“E teka, bakit ba ko ingles ng ingles?”

Sabi ko nga, masarap sa Mang Inasal. Kaya nga yung lagi akong di nakakakain dito dahil laging mahaba ang pila. Yung sabaw nila ay sabaw ng sinigang. Sarap ka-partner nung inihaw na manok pati kanin. Lagi akong nakaka-dalawang rice dito pero andami paring natitira sa manok. Madalas ko pa ngang tini-takeout e. Marami pa silang ibang putahe tulad ng Bangus at Beef Sinigang, Bangus Sisig, Pork Barbeque, Pinoy Burger at mga desserts. Pero isa pa lang natitikman ko sa lahat ng yun, ang paborito kong PM2 (a.k.a. Pecho).

Pecho part, up close.

So kung nagiisip ka kung saan masarap kumain at mura, subukan mo sa Mang Inasal. Tiyak, di ka magsisisi.


Pinoy Street Food Guide: Laman Loob

19 Jan

Here’s another post about street food. Pinoy street food that is. Laman loob means innards. The inside parts of livestock or poultry. If you haven’t tried eating some, I suggest you do! They’re pretty good! Specially with the right sauce. Here’s the lowdown of the street food featured above.


Isaw is barbecued intestines. There are 3 variants: Manok, Baboy and Baka. (Chicken, Pig and Cow) The best for me is Isaw ng Baka. Besides, cows only eat grass (or at least that’s what we know). But Isaw ng Baboy and Manok also tastes good. Just as long as they’re properly cleaned. If your Isaw tastes funny, (bitter) just think anatomy and physiology and you’ll know what I mean. Price: P3.00 – P10.00


Dugo is blood in english. Who the hell would eat blood?! Uh, vampires? Among all the laman loobs, Dugo is probably the cheapest. A 3-piece Dugo would cost as cheap as P3.00. I honestly don’t know how they make this one. I just know that its blood. Probably Pig blood. Price: P3.00 – P7.00


Forgive me for not knowing. I think its Tenga but I’m really not sure. Tenga is ears by the way. Tastes good. Price: P5.00 – P10.00


Or BBQ or Bar-B-Q. Made from pork meat. Tastes different depending on which store you bought it from. I think it has something to do with the marinade. But then again, I don’t know for sure. Best barbecue I tasted so far was from Amber. Price: P10.00 – P15.00

I know some of these (or maybe all) food will make you wonder if us Filipinos are barbaric in nature. No! We just don’t want to waste. The other parts of a slaughtered animal I mean. Enjoy and don’t throw up on your keyboard. =)
