How Mang Inasal satisfies the Rice-Eating Pinoys

 Mang Inasal’s delicious food offerings bring out the quirks in Filipino food lovers to embrace the sarap ng kaing Pinoy experience.

There is no denying that the Filipino’s have an undying love for food. Our fiesta-driven culture is full of celebrations marked by the partaking of food. In fact, Filipinos have made it a point to find almost every reason to eat. Any Pinoy gathering, name it, and food will always be a part of it. 

Interestingly, food-loving Pinoys have developed quirky eating habits -– from their generous use of condiments to their shameless use of hands during boodle fights.

Customers can satisfy their cravings for Pinoy comfort food with Mang Inasal’s paborito meals.

Mang Inasal, 
the home of the 2-in-1 sa laki, nuot sa ihaw sarap chicken inasal, has not only  captured the taste of Pinoy comfort foods. It has also encouraged a dining experience where everyone is comfortable to show their eating habits, making for a true sarap ng kaing Pinoy moment with loved ones.

I remember the very first time that my best friend and I brought her French-Canadian husband Pierre to Mang Inasal. He fell in love at first bite with the Mang Inasal chicken. He even managed to eat with his bare hands and enjoyed dipping them in the mixed soy sauce, calamansi and vinegar sauce. He also put a lot of annato oil on both his mounds of unlimited rice and chicken. To think we never really thought he'd be able to enjoy eating that much! If a foreigner whose totally clueless how one should eat chicken inasal would enjoy that much, what more could the typical Filipinos, right?

Here are some special quirks that describe Filipino food lovers:

Rice is staple

What will truly make a meal satisfying for Filipinos is if they pair their ulam or viand with a cup or two of rice. At Mang Inasal, everyone can satisfy their craving for chicken inasal that comes with unlimited rice. Delight in the nuot sa ihaw sarap of the grilled chicken without worrying about running out of rice.

Kamayan practice

One way to feast on a Mang Inasal salu-salo is by going utensils-free! Kamayan is a common practice where food is eaten by scooping just the right amount of rice in one hand and getting your ulam with the other. Since Mang Inasal promises Pinoy-style eating, Filipinos can savor more their chicken inasal pecho and paa by using bare hands.

Not without condiments

Most Pinoys love to drizzle their food with condiments to further enhance the flavors. And what most Filipinos like about dining at Mang Inasal is that each table has a rack of soy sauce, vinegar, and chicken oil which they can use for their sawsawan for the chicken inasal. Patrons know that the best way to enjoy chicken inasal is by eating it with rice mixed with chicken oil.

Merienda time is more enjoyable with Mang Inasal favorites such as Palabok, Halo-halo, and Lumpiang Togue.

Merienda time

Many Filipinos eat five times a day because of merienda in the morning and in the afternoon – the time they usually take a break at school, work, or home to indulge in their favourite snack. Pinoys can drop by Mang Inasal to get their merienda fix from classic favorites such as the creamy Pinoy Halo-Halo, sweet leche flan, and flavorful palabok.

Salu-salo everyday

Filipinos are festive people - they always find reason to celebrate over a feast of well-loved dishes anytime, anywhere. They can have a fill of Mang Inasal Fiesta Inasal meal -- the perfect combination of one-piece chicken inasal, one-piece lumpiang togue, and a generous side serving of palabok. Or to make the day special for everyone, families can have salu-salo over the Palabok Party Pan paired with pork BBQ. 

Indeed, at Mang Inasal, Filipinos can delight in a wide array of great-tasting traditional food, bringing out their distinct quirks to enjoy a real Pinoy-style eating experience.
