Lechon Manok

Lechon Manok (charcoal grilled chicken) food craze officially hit the Philippine food market in 1985 and it was November on that same year when Davaoeno’s first had their version of Lechon Manok which was introduced by Patok sa Manok first branch in Ilustre.

A year after, Patok sa manok finally expanded its take-out counter to a full service restaurant. They started offering all-Pinoy dishes like Lechon Liempo, Crispy Pata, Kare-kare, Pancit Canton, Barbecued Chicken, and more.

During our visit, we tried their famous Lechon Manok. It was truly delicious, true to what the owner said, theres no need for “sarsa” since their Lechon Manok is already juicy and tasty.

They also served Adobong Buntot ng Bariles, it really makes a difference if the fish used is fresh. I thought I already had too much tuna during our first two days of Davao food trip but after tasting their Adobong Buntot ng Bariles, I started to crave for more tuna dishes.

Im honestly not a huge fan of Kambing (Goat meat) but their Kalderetang Kambing is so good. Their Kalderetang kambing doesn’t have funky smell and it taste good even without too much spices.

I also love their Spare Ribs with sweet barbecue sauce, I swear I can finish two slabs of it but I had to reserve space for more food haha.

If you love spicy food like me, you will surely enjoy their Squid with Sambal – its deep fried squid with lots of chili bits.

Each meal in Davao will not be complete without Kinilaw, one of the few semi-raw fish that eat.

If you think you had enough Lechon Manok, you should also try their Chicken Barbecue, with its smoky aroma, you will end with another cup of rice:)

For dessert, we had their all time favorite Leche Flan and Turon. With this full breakfast spread, I think I already had enough calories for the next few days….. and wait theres 5 more restaurants to visit.
