Ang Lechon Manok ni Sr. Pedro


Here's my entry for Market Friday by @dswigle. Before going to my girlfriend's place, she asked me if I could buy chicken for our dinner. I was supposed to go to Baliwag but when I went there, it was closed. So I saw this place which was beside and decided to get the chicken from here. In their description it says No. 1 in Visayas and Mindanao, I wonder how true this is. I haven't tasted the chicken from here yet, so I was also curious. This was just a small place and if you look at the photo closely you could see their plastic barrier.

They were only serving 2 items and it's their Lechon manok and their Atchara/ Papaya Relish. You could actually watch them prepare the chicken. Nothing beats fresh chicken.

I asked the person in charge to cut it up so we don't have to do it at her place. The chicken was wrapped inside this plastic bag.

This was the chicken, we had to heat it for dinner. I usually eat the white meat of the chicken because that's what my girlfriend doesn't like so that is usually my basis on comparing it with the other lechon manok joints located here in Baguio. It was actually flavorful, and it wasn't that dry which were huge points for me. Because I have tasted chicken where their white meat and was dry as a desert haha. It also came with soy sauce. Overall, it actually good and the chicken is actually cheaper compared to the other famous joints here. It costs 270 Php or that's around 5.32 USD. To be honest I still prefer the chicken of Baliwag.

I just had to insert this guy who usually sits and looks at us while we are usually eating looking for some attention hehe. Hope that you guys have a great weekend ahead!

Oh!!! The dog took the prize! I love his little face and it looks like he is waiting for someone to throw him a little piece! Did you just get a haircut? He looks like he must have gotten groomed not too long ago. How old is he?

I liked how they did the chicken! It looks delicious and to be honest, that was quite a good buy for a whole chicken. What a great idea, having them cut it up so you don't have to do it when you are there. Saves a lot of mess and trouble. It is interesting how your girlfriend doesn't like breast meat or white meat. I thought most females like the white meat as there is less fat in it, but, even my sisters now like the thighs and dark meat! Perhaps it is because I mostly eat white, from habit.

I know you like the other chicken place, but, at least you now have an acceptable alternative when they are closed! I love the concept of #MarketFriday and how our cultures differ and then again, how much they are alike. Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, even your language/languages. Along with the fact of what is normal for where you live? These are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I had hoped that posting here will familiarize you with the world around you just a little bit more. Viewing it from a more personal level as opposed to the newsworthy level gives me a better understanding of the people and a view that is often not seen on television. Sometimes, it seems like I learn more on some social media about a certain incident than what the news tells me.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!

Hahaha Thaanks! My girlfriend actually tried cutting his hair. He's actually 4 months old right now.

But sometimes we have to be cautious when we let them chop it up. My younger brother actually had an incident with another branch that selling chicken like these. They chopped it up and when he got home there were some missing pieces. So they went back to complain.

She loves red meat because she says it's juicier.

Thanks again for consistently dropping by! Have a great day!

In actuality, she is right, The dark meat is juicier as it has a higher fat content. I have no idea why I have always eaten white meat, probably because when I was growing up, it was the preferred piece of meat as it was better for you. I have recently taken a walk to the dark side and think it is pretty yummy! :)
