Bacolod Chicken Parilla (4 Scout Reyes cor Scout Gandia Laging Handa, Quezon City)

Bacolod Chicken ParillaDate visited: March 2013

What we ordered:

Paa and Pecho with Garlic rice, Kansi


Taste = 3.5/5

–          There are several good reviews about this restaurant; one of them even says it is better than JT’s. Having tasted their version of chicken inasal, we were a bit disappointed that it tasted too “ordinary.” It was also on the dry side, especially the breast part and the size was visibly smaller than JT’s. The saving grace was the bottomless chicken oil. Lyn described the kansi as bitter nilagang baka.


Service = 4/5

–          The servers gave good service and were attentive enough. We could see that they treated their regular customers very well.


Ambience = 4/5

–          The place has an air-conditioned and an al fresco area. The advantage of the air-conditioned area is the nice temperature and better-looking dining area. Unfortunately, it was too noisy. The al fresco area feels more relaxed but the smoke from the grill might get to you.


Value for money = 4/5

–          If you consider their serving sizes, the prices are acceptable. We just wish they could improve on the quality and sizes of their dishes including the rice.
