The usage of charcoal in grilling the chicken results in a crusty, caramelized texture and a smoky flavor that has truly enticed the palate of Filipinos. The slow, continuous cooking liquefies the fat so its also beneficial for the health conscious. Aside from chicken, pork dishes are available. There are also soups and salads that are quintessential and well-loved dishes from Bacolod City.
