The Chicken Inato of Chicken Ati-Atihan
One of the places Tutubi ate out in Ormoc reminded him of Jo's Chicken Inato on Jupiter St. in Makati and the original one in Dumaguete City.
, literally meaning "our chicken" or "homely chicken" in English is special marinated chicken bar-be-queued to golden brown appetizing goodness.
Upon getting the menu, he ordered chicken thigh for only PhP65.00, cheap by Manila standard where a similar meal costs aboout Php100 or more. a noisy picture of the chicken at ISO1600...'twas too dark inside the bahay kubo ambiance of the place is good, though the lights are too dim for practical photography of food if you don't have additional light with you. Tutubi did what he saw locals eating there did: eat with bare hands :P Chicken Ati-atihan's tagline: Mapapasayaw ka sa sarap! What's your favorite bar-be-qued chicken? Chicken inasal? chicken inato? or your own secret chicken bbq recipe? --- Chicken Ati-atihan Aviles St., Ormoc City, Leyte There's another restaurant in Ormoc by the same owners of Chicken Ati-atihan serving the same chicken inato (and also offering franchise) but Tutubi forgot the name. Other recommended Ormoc Restaurant: Chito's Chow Bar & Restaurant (Filipino/Chinese Dishes) (Near Veteran's Park and Ormoc City Coliseum) Tel. No. +188.8.131.5220

Penong's in Davao is good, but so is (or was?) Chicken BBQ at Dusk Til Dawn (also in Davao) which was served with a special caramelized onion dip..yum!

I've never tasted the ones you're mentioning. I guess we have rather plain BBQ spicy mix over here in Sweden.
A tip when it comes to taking photos in dark environment: have a miniature pocket torch with you and light up the plate with, it works pretty well :-)

"though the lights are too dim for practical photography of food".... probably a place to bring a girl and not a camera! ;-)

yum! but is the white meat tender? i had experiences with barbequed chicken in some restaurants. they're coarse though they look palatable.
looks like you're having the time of your life. :-)
