Soogba Brings Authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal to Manila

When I met Chef Carlo Tanalgo at a pop-up event I organized, I got excited when I found out he owns a Chicken Inasal restaurant. I didn't expect much when I tried his food then I found out it is the only authentic chicken inasal in Manila. Others have tried and they obviously failed.

For Soogba, Carlo says profit is secondary as he cares more about giving high-quality chicken inasal to Filipinos in Manila. Yes, there is no need to travel to Bacolod just to eat this local dish because he brought it here. We definitely have to thank him for that.

All their sauces are made from scratch. They don't outsource anything. Now, those are qualities of a good restaurant. I really LOVE their chicken oil. It not only pairs great with their chicken but with their other meat dishes too. I probably lost track of the amount of chicken oil I consumed.

Original Sparerib (P180)

They also sell other meat dishes aside from chicken including this Original Sparerib. At first, I thought I was going to have a hard time slicing this meat but it's very tender. I'm actually trying to avoid pork but since it was so good, I was able to finish it.

Pecho (P160)

Before eating his delectable dishes, Carlo asked me if I know anything about the history of Soogba. Unfortunately, the answer was no but I do know the history of this Pecho that was presented in front of me and that is I devoured it in minutes. Wow oh wow! It is the juiciest chicken inasal I have ever tasted. They weren't kidding when they said their inasal is extremely authentic.

Isol, Atay, Gizzard, Spicy Neck, Garlic Chorizo, Chorizo Hamonado (P80 each)

It was my first time to try chicken ass (isol) and boy was I impressed. Chef Carlo told us their food is cheap for the quality and he's right. I tasted all these appetizers and they're certainly worth a lot more than just P80 each stick.

I guarantee I will be back here as their Chicken Inasal is <3.
