Chicken inasal, commonly known as inasal, is a Filipino variant of roast chicken, marinated in a mixture of lime, pepper, vinegar and annato, then grilled over hot coals while basted with the marinade. It is served with rice, calamansi, soy sauce, and vinegar (often sinamak vinegar, a palm vinegar infused with garlic, chili peppers and langkawas, or greater galangal, a kind of ginger). A common dish in the Visayas, especially the Negros, it is a popular specialty in the city of Bacolod, where an entire street market is dedicated to local dishes, particularly inasal. A sign in the heart of the market reads "Manokan Country" [1] which is the Ilonggo word for chicken. Many restaurant chains are famous for serving inasal, like Bacolod Chicken Inasal and Mang Inasal, which originated in Iloilo City.
