What you will find in Granada St Corner Valencia: Bacolod Chicken, Sinamak, and Joel Torre's Manukan Grille

Joel Torre is a hero to indie filmdom. He appears in student thesis films without charging talent fees. For me, Joel Torre is the quintessential Filipino actor (OK, so Pen Medina too). If you're a Joel Torre Fan (Batang West Side, Oro, Plata, Mata), you might want to check out his restaurant too. We had late lunch at the Granada-Valencia branch yesterday, an unpretentious place, with posters from some of Torre's movies, plays, and social concerns (eg RockEd fundraising concert for Leyte landslide victims). Interesting area, by the way, it should be renamed Bibingka Country. The open air resto is next door to Ferrino's Bibingka and a few doors away is the Homemade Carrot Cake (that also sells bibingka galapong) .

At the Manukan Grille they serve Bacolod Inasal, Kansi (Ilonggo Bulalo), Kaldo (Kansi Broth), and of course, Batchoy. They also have atchara and you can have extra servings of Garlic Chips and Chicken Oil (stuff you pour over rice). Theres lots of sinamak and calamansi (Yey!). Chicken oil is a killer but it tastes like heaven so I suggest you request for extra. If its too greasy for you, try it with sinamak, the ubiquitous Bacolod native palm vinegar flavored with chili, garlic, onion, ginger, and other magic spices. Now, if youre dying for kansi, go there for dinner, as it is a night specialty. In the afternoon, its not so hot in the Valencia area. Eating inasal at the Manukan Grille transports me to my childhood in the province - delicious chicken dipped in flavored vinegar, greasy rice, greasy fingers, a van unloading San Miguel Beer and far away, the din of boys playing basketball in a court in the middle of the steet.

Manukan is open until 1AM in the morning.

Manukan Grille Granada Corner Valencia St, Ortigas Avenue Extension, Quezon City (7219025)
