A friend who claims ChickeNamit, a restaurant in Mabolo, offers chicken inasal that's as good as the chicken inasal in Bacolod made me want to try it out myself. And try it out I did.

Te, ano, namit man gid ang ChickeNamit? (So, is ChickeNamit really delicious?) I guess I was expecting the chicken to taste like Aida's in Manokan Country in Bacolod and the cansi to taste like Sharyn's Cansi, also in Bacolod, that ChickeNamit kind of disappointed me. (One of my lessons from the road I, myself, did not heed.) Although the soup did not satisfy like how Sharyn's did, I did like the sourness of the soup, but did not like the beef parts they used. As for the chicken, my friend thinks Mang Inasal's is better. On the upside, I was happily surprised that their iced tea was raspberry, just like Bigby's, but for only Php 15.
How "Bacolod's finest flavors" fined my pocket:
Pecho meal (comes with iced tea) Php 95
Cansi Php 240
Iced tea Php 15
