Bacolod Chicken Inasal: Stuck Back in Time

Before the birth of Mang Inasal and Chic-Boy , there was already Bacolod Chicken Inasal. This restaurant introduced Chicken Inasal to the common people. There are still several diners who patronize Bacolod Chicken Inasal and I am one of them...remembering my good dining experience at that  restaurant years ago. I bought a voucher that  is worth P180 for P300 worth of regular-priced food and drinks at Bacolod Chicken...great deal right?
After my kid got his check-up at Manila Doctors, we went to SM City so that my mom can claim her items in exchange of the Worlds of Fun tickets she have been collecting since early this year. My son also got to play of course. I remembered that I have a voucher and instead of having a snack, we decided to have early dinner at Bacolod was quite a long walk from SM City to the restaurant in Trinoma. It is located on the 2nd floor near the fountain area. The Bacolod Chicken Inasal branch was huge and has that festive ambiance which would remind you of dining in the province. 
I asked the waitress first before ordering if we would be charged VAT and service charge if our order exceeds the amount of the voucher and she said I would only have to pay the exceeding amount so we ordered more than P300 worth of food and drinks. Since Bacolod Chicken Inasal is famous for its Chicken Inasal, we ordered two Petso worth P95.50 each plus three plain rice worth P25.50 each. My mom wanted soup so she ordered Solo Batchoy worth P61.50. 
The Batchoy tasted just like any ordinary batchoy...nothing special about my kid and mom shared it to keep their tummy warm. The price is just fine, but I would not really order that next time. 
Now for the main entree! The famous chicken come it looks smaller than what I used to order years ago? Or maybe the size has never changed, but unknowingly I tend to compare it to the petso at Chic-Boy. The chicken tastes good and grilled just right, but it seems a bit dry. I miss the juiciness and oiliness of the chicken which you can get from JT's or Chic-Boy. 
The condiments lack the chicken oil which I love pouring on my rice...yummy but deadly! The vinegar is good so I mixed that with the soy sauce, calamansi and sili. I asked the waiter if they have chicken oil and they gave me a small amount...which is fine so I can control my cholesterol intake. 
When we got our bill, I think we only paid around P50 (excess of the voucher amount) which I think was a great deal! My dining experience at Bacolod Chicken Inasal  was average. Service was good since we got there during off peak hours and the waiters were accommodating. The location is great since you can watch the fountain after dining and it is near the entrance of the mall. The downside is that they don't have their own restroom so you need to go out to mall for that.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make. She uses authentic ingredients which could only be seen in specialty sections in groceries or Japanese stores. With my desire to eat Beef Sukiyaki, I have made some research and used ingredients that can be found in regular groceries. Here is my easy and no sweat Beef Sukiyaki recipe.
