Who is Manokan?

Manokan Express Header 2

An Online Journal about a man that chicken built.

Manok is the Ilonggo word for chicken. Manokan is a place where chickens exists. It can be a poultry or a sidewalk restaurant. But in Bacolod, its much more related to the latter. Just say you want to go to Manokan Country and you’re up for the best tasting grilled chicken in the world… the chicken inasal.

My parents have a poultry farm and now a small eatery where they serve inasal. I don’t help with the business. I just patronize and eat the chicken. The family business helped my parents in making both ends meet. Finally, they have an engineer and soon a doctor.


Manokan is…

You are very much welcome to join us during Sabbath at PAC. If you could come during one of our monthly potlucks, much better. You can check our Multiply site on the potluck dates. See you.
