The first outlet of Bacolod Chk n BBQ House was inaugurated in Kuwait by the Ambassador of Philippines to Kuwait H.E. Renato Pedro O. Villa on Thursday, 12 January. The outlet is located in Al Haur complex, Fahaheel, which is within the heart of the Fahaheel shopping area for consumer convenience.
The Philippine Ambassador cut the ribbon in the presence of a large gathering of well-wishers. While enjoying the food and distinct taste of the Bacolod style cuisine, Ambassador Renato showered praise on the establishment for the decor, the atmosphere and the set-up of the restaurant.
Bacolod Chk-n-BBQ House is a Filipinos themed, middle price range casual dining restaurant chain that seeks to become a Filipino restaurant institution known not only for its authentic tasting Chicken Inasal and traditional Filipino dishes, but also for its penchant of providing a great food experience and helping customers create lasting memories. The original recipes and distinct cooking process which has been passed down for two generations now has remained the same with no changes. Aside from the popular Chicken Inasal, Bacolod Chk n BBQ House serves other popular Ilonggo dishes such as La Paz Batchoy, Pancit Molo, Kansi and Kadyos Baboy Langka. Other equally popular Filipino dishes are the Kare Kare, Sinigang na Bangus, Pinakbet and Gising Gising to name a few.
Bacolod Chk-n-BBQ House was founded by an enterprising couple who started the business in 2004 after years of working in the food manufacturing and fast-food restaurant industry. The famous food chain had its origins in the Philippines’ City of Smiles, Bacolod city back in the early 70s. It was an instant hit among the Negrenses (as people from the Negros province are called) and this spurned the iconic Bacolod Chicken Inasal, which is popularly known now.
The taste is a unique blend of spices punctuated by the sweet spicy aroma of the coconut vinegar where the meat has been tenderized after hours of marinating in it. Grilled to the right crispiness and juiciness over charcoal, the taste is as uniquely Filipino unlike any other typical chicken barbeque. Best eaten with bare hands and dipped in a combination of cane vinegar, soy sauce, lime fruit and chili peppers, Chicken Inasal is the perfect combination with garlic rice basted in annatto oil (chicken oil).
With a strong foothold in the local market with branches in the Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao region, the brand has since expanded to the Middle East, with branches in UAE, Qatar, Muscat, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and now in Kuwait.
