A Taste of Iloilo's Famous Native Lechon Manok

A few nights ago, a friend of mine visited Cebu and joined us for Trivia Night. When the night was over, he gave us two pieces of Tatoy's Lechon Manok from Iloilo. We decided to bring it to the office to share with our friends.

Before eating, we heated the chicken inside the microwave. I wasn't really aware of what it was since it was my first time to hear about Tatoy's. When I Googled it, it turned out to be one of the bestsellers and must-try dishes in Iloilo.

Compared to Bacolod's Inasal, Tatoy's made use of native chicken and roasted it to a delicious point. I especially loved the skin and how juicy the meat was. I just wonder how the chicken would taste if it were eaten fresh from the oven.

The only thing that bothered me was the head of the native chicken creepily peeking at me as I ate its leg.

We'll make sure to visit Tatoy's Manokan and Seafoods restaurant the next time we're in Iloilo so we could try it fresh. Considering the one we got to try was already a day old and still tasted good, it makes me wonder how better the fresh order will be.

Have you tried this already? What do you think of it?
