Bacolod's Famous Foods, Negros Occidental Philippines

Ted's La Paz Batchoy and Bong Bong's Pasalubong 

Bacolodnon's are Batchoy lovers.Ted's La Paz Batchoy at Sm Bacolod is a must try. I'm really not a fan of Batchoy but I guess I changed my mind. My friend's cousin served as our tour guide all through out our stay in Bacolod. I partially dedicated this blog to her, thank you Benajoy. 

We dropped by at  Bong Bong's Pasalubong outlet, they have several branches in malls around the City, and their main branch is located at UTC Mall Araneta Street, Purok Lechonan, Bacolod CityI loved their butterscotch, caramel tarts and barquiron. I bought yummy pasalubongs for my family and friends. I should have brought more because I was craving for it for days.

A long row of Inasal stalls along the street will feed your Chicken Barbeque cravings found at Manokan Country Strip,  located infront of SM Mall Bacolod, Reclamation Area. Aida's Chicken was the Winner of Bacolod's Best Tasting Chicken Contest during the last  MassKara Festival 25th AnniversaryThey surely have the best tasting chicken- I can assure you that. The chicken inasal will never be as delicious as it can be without dipping it in their very own "sinamak" (spiced vinegar).
