Jay-j's Inasal in Bacolod

We had lunch at Jay-j's Chicken Inasal last Thursday. It was not a busy day since it's the middle of the week. Lucky us, there were only a few tables occupied.  When we came to the restaurant, I realized this was the same Jay-j's in Manila.  A similar hang out place of those who crave for Filipino food with moderate prices and for those who want to spend their time drinking the night away. :)

For me, the inasal mastery should be left to the Bacolodians/Bacoleños. I believe are the experts when it comes to grilling prowess. :D 

Menu - Starters, Inasal, Chicken and Pork

Menu - Breakfast, Merienda, Dessert, Fiesta meals
Menu - drinks

Menu - Beef, Seafoods, Gulay, Sabaw, Rice & Noodles
We ordered this chicken curry but we weren't able to eat it. We had it packed as a doggy bag.
Chicken Curry - Php135
Beef salpicao was really tasty. I didn't like how the beef was cooked though, it was still a bit tough.

Angus Beef Salpicao - Php175

Laing was really good. It had bits of pork and chillies with the wonderful blend of the gata.
Laing - Php 115

For those who love dinuguan, this is a must try! The crispy pork slices add twist to this conventional Filipino dish.
Crispy Dinuguan - Php 145
It was my first time to try Gising-gising. At first, I thought it was Kising-kising. hehe The husband says it's the best he has tried. I guess it's a must try at Jay-j's, too.
Gising-gising - Php 120
The pancit canton was a disappointment. We actually ordered it for the kids but it was really salty. We had to return it because my tot was not eating it. Good thing they gave us another full bowl, a good tasting one. :)

Pancit Canton - Php 135
This was my ordered drink, Sago't Gulaman. I miss having this on a sunny day. I love the softness of the gulaman and just enough sweetness of the arnibal.
Sago't Gulaman - Php 75
The banana shake was ordered by my SIL.  It didn't look fancy or anything but I guess it was good because I didn't hear her say she didn't like it. :)
Banana shake - Php 95
Jay-j's can be found at the back of Lopue's Mandalagan.  It's in a cluster of stores called Art District. The place is a new hang out of the young and young once. hihi

  1. Love heir bbq and cheap beer at Jay-J's

  2. Wasn't able to eat at JayJ's when I went to Badolod because we went to this place called manukan? The carinderia type of chicken place that's tabi-tabi? But the inasal was really really good!!

    Can I ask for a favor? Please like THIS PHOTO of me on a bridge? I entered a photo contest and I need your help. Pretty please :) Thanks!! <3

  3. Would love to try Jay J's when I visit Bacolod! :D I love inasal too and yes, I also think Bacolodians are master grillers! :D
