Mang Inasal : Eating on a Budget in Boracay

Although in most cases quality comes with a price, I think this is not so with restaurants or food. When in Boracay Island in the Philippines and you are eating on a budget, there are a lot of alternatives to choose from and one of my favorite restaurants to go to is Mang Inasal. Their main specialty is their Chicken Inasal which arguably might be the country's best tasting chicken barbeque. Mang Inasal also serves unlimited rice to some of their packages namely the Paborito Meals. The smell of their BBQ alone is enough to make one crave to have it.

As you can see, Mang Inasal's prices are very affordable. Compared to most restaurants in Boracay, their prices is almost 50% lesser. Although affordable or cheap, the quality and taste is certainly top class. When going to Boracay for vacation or when I'm there to perform for say a month or so, I love to go around different places and I love to eat, but eating at the restaurants on the island just to try out a thing or two may become expensive. So when I'm tightening up on my wallet and eating on a budget but still want quality food, Mang Inasal is the place. In Boracay, Mang Inasal is situated at D Mall and at the D Talipapa. Although Inasal or BBQ is their main thing, other food items on their menu are worth trying as well.

At the moment, I am in Hong Kong and just writing about Mang Inasal and seeing these pictures has got my appetite running wild, problem is, they don't have any branch here in Hong Kong, yet. So there you have it for eating on a budget in Boracay, although there are other options, my top suggestion, Mang Inasal!
