Inasal Chicken Bacolod at Robinsons Galleria

We had dinner at Inasal Chicken Bacolod in Robinsons Galleria last Sunday. Because we couldn’t decide what to order, we opted for one of their group meals, which is good for four to five persons. We chose Inasalo-Salo Group Meal #6 which includes 3 boneless thighs, pork sisig, chosuey and garlic/java rice. This group meal cost Php830.00.

These Boneless Chicken Thighs were tasty and nicely grilled, but the parts were quite small. The spiced vinegar was a good complement to it, by the way.

The pork parts they used for this Pork Sisig were not the usual pig ears and/or pig face, but they were tender nonetheless although a bit salty. Another question we asked when this sisig on a sizzling plate was served was: Where’s the egg?

I enjoyed the combination of six different veggies in this Chopsuey, all fresh and not overcooked. It had cabbage, chayote, carrots, snow pea, Baguio beans and mushrooms. It was also seasoned just right.

True to its name, this Garlic Rice has lots of garlic, which was okay. I was wondering, though, what their java rice looks like and tastes like.

Taste-wise, their food was okay, but the portions were small, so I think the price of Php830.00 for this group meal without drinks was a bit steep.

Kalbe Fitbar: A Healthy and Tasty Snack

These days, it takes me longer to finish my weekly grocery shopping because I check the labels of the snacks that I buy for my 8-year-old son. I purchase a particular food item for Justin if it is healthy and if it has minimum sugar content. I read from a magazine that 1 teaspoon of sugar is about 4 grams, so I always do the Math when planning what snacks he’ll bring in school every day.

One of my recent supermarket finds is Kalbe Fitbar. It’s a snack bar from Indonesia that has zero cholesterol, zero trans fat, and has low calories and low sugar content. What’s more, Fitbar snack bar has all the goodness of oats (one of its main ingredients), which is a great source of fiber.

Chocolate Fitbar by Kalbe (5pcs), Php89.75

The first variant I bought was the Chocolate Fitbar. I was the first one who tried it, and when Justin took a bite, he said it’s yummy. Once or twice a week, I drop a piece of this healthy snack bar in his lunch box.

Fitbar variants (top to bottom): Chocolate Fitbar, Nuts Fitbar and Fruits Fitbar

On my next trip to the grocery store, I bought Fitbar’s two other variants: Nuts Fitbar and Fruits Fitbar. Justin ate the Fruits Fitbar. He said it also tastes nice, but he likes the Chocolate Fitbar more. I tried the Nuts Fitbar, and I enjoyed it, too. My verdict: Fitbar is not only healthy but yummy as well.

Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings at SM Megamall

The Mega Food Hall, located on the 5th Level of Mega Fashion Hall, officially opened last Monday. Hubby brought us there to try Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings.

We ordered 1 dozen of Wings World which combines three unique flavors: Garlic Parmesan, Nagoya Tebasaki and Smokey BBQ. We paired this with steamed white rice.

Wings World (1 dozen), Php320.00

That’s Smokey BBQ on the left with the orange sauce. In the middle is Nagoya Tebasaki wings sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. And those on the right are the Garlic Parmesan-flavored wings. The first thing we noticed when our food was served was that the chicken wings were fried to perfection, and they were served hot. We liked that very much. In terms of taste, father and son enjoyed the Garlic Parmesan wings, while I preferred Nagoya Tebasaki. The Smokey BBQ variant was what we liked the least. I guess the sweet-and-sour mix didn’t appeal to our palates.

We also bought two dips at Php25.00 each for our Wings World: the Aioli Dip and the Blue Cheese Dip. The Aioli Dip nicely complemented the Nagoya Tebasaki wings, but we realized that the Blue Cheese Dip that we intended for our son was a poor choice because what he was eating, Garlic Parmesan, was already cheese-flavored. He soon grew tired of this dip.

Our first dining experience at Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings was good. We’d love to try other items on their menu next time.
