Tasting Soogba’s Authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal and More

Spending 6 years of my childhood in Butuan City (Mindanao), has let me experience a lot of things, otherwise not typically familiar to a growing kid in more urbanized cities or the country’s capital regions.

I go to the beach every Sunday just because, and we know almost everyone, everywhere (since the town is pretty small).

One of my favourite ways of cooking is called “Sugba”, or most commonly known as “Ihaw” in Tagalog.

Sugba means “broil” or “grill”, and it could also be “a restaurant where food is cooked in a grill, hence I think where this new food junction I recently tried got its inspiration.

Soogba is a restaurant that offers the most authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal in the metro. Along with this, they also offer other grilled dishes such as chicken barbecue, spicy chicken neck, gizzard, atay (liver), and isol (chicken ass).

Carlo Tanalgo, Soogba’s Chef wanted to let Metro Manila taste the real Bacolod Chicken Inasal,

“Inasal” is a modified Filipino lechon Manok, and “asal” means in a stick. It is seasoned generously with calamansi (a Filipino resonant of lemon), coconut vinegar, pepper, orange, lime and annatto. The chicken meat is subjected to immense heat over hot coals while being clobbered by the prepared marinade.

A common dish in the Visayas region, and the famous go-to food of travellers and even locals of Bacolod, is finally here in Quezon City, and only costs for as low as 150php!

I was able to try Inasal, Isol, and their best-seller and own recipe of Original Spare Ribs and I felt engulfed with the mixture of delectable flavours! They even make their own sauces and chicken oil.

I didn’t expect I’ll appreciate their version on these foods.

It was nothing like anything I tasted before. The meat is cooked evenly and their juice just bathes everything nicely.

I knew right then and there I had to take John with me here next time! He is the REAL Inasal fan!

Chef Carlo also says “Soogba is about the food experience and customer satisfaction.” True enough, dining here didn’t disappoint.

What to Expect at The Yard Street Food Cinema (Timog Ave., QC)

“Location, location, location.” “These are the 3 things an investor looks for when they are trying to scout for a property.”

Not too long ago, you can often hear me say these, especially when I was still working as a Training Officer for a real estate company.

Consequently, I have been spending most of my time in Quezon City, particularly because most of my events are in here, and John lives in West Avenue as well. So it definitely equates to being my favorite work and play place!

That is why my joy wasn’t quite contained when I learned that The Yard was having its soft opening. Right on time, I was actually in SM North EDSA to meet a client to deliver her bridal shoes!

I booked a ride, and head on to this newest food destination! To my surprise, it greeted so well telling me it’s only a short distance from West Avenue!

I was so thrilled how a food park is going to change the food scene on this side of town! Surely, Timog Ave. and Morato has always been ringing streets when it comes to hang out places, date nights and food trips.

Well today, the game has just started to become more interesting!

Compared to the Yard in Xavierville, I am really excited and rooting for how this place is going to be a big hit in the coming months; especially that Christmas is sooo close already!

It didn’t hurt either when the foodpark’s theme was circumvented and inspired by movies and tv series! Expect to see hints from Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, The Lion King, Star Wars , Monsters Inc. The Avengers etc.!

The creative juices were actually on a hurricane level that night for me! I really loved how the stalls were wittily named; they were all very well-thought-of!

The lighting was also gorgeous! It made my photos more Instagrammable! To the point that I actually changed my theme! Check @encyclopevia on Instagram for you to see what I’m talking about.

It was no wonder when I saw a familiar face there too! We always see each other in random places! And it makes me feel like 21 again!

I don’t feel old at all, considering our ages are a decade apart! Haha 🙂 *Pagbigyan ang tita.

And of course, while we’re enjoying the misty lights, together with my blogger friends, we got to try The Yard Street Food Cinema‘s wide array of dishes and drinks from different creative food geniuses!

And they were divine!

A drink bar is also situated at the far end of the whole food park – The Yard Quenchers. They have unique interactive drinks that bring friends and family together,  much like the objective for the Yard.

They have fun drinks like the Ultimate Hulk Smash and The Wrath of Thor, which is already going viral as of the moment. They both need you to wear props and be like Hulk or Thor before you get to drink the cocktail. Is it served on a big bowl good for sharing for 3-5 pax. It’s also quite affordable as it is only PHP 350 pesos.

So if you’re hungry (which is like 90% of the time) head on to the groovy The Yard Street Food Cinema at Timog Ave. and I’m positive, that your food experience will absolutely be a blockbuster hit!
