(McKinley Hill, Taguig City, Philippines) – Actor Joel Torre brought a taste of his Visayan hometown of Bacolod to the Metro through his latest endeavor in the food business called JT’s Manukan. The place has more than its obviou

s reference to chicken but also offers a few rare Bacolod and Ilonggo offerings. I will let the pictures below speak their rather enticing language.


“Chicken inasal and their tasty garlic rice.”

“The enormous serving of spareribs for the cheap price of a little above 110.”

“Boneless bangus. That belly is sinful!”

“Kansi: Ilo-ilo’s version of bulalo.”

“Apan-apan: Adobong kangkong with guinamos (ilonggo bagoong)”

“Kalamansi and siling labuyo make your sawsawan interesting.”

“Typical night at JT’s”


JT’s Manukan is a good after-office chill out place that is absolutely affordable (PhP 150-200 and you will be so well-fed). They also serve below zero beer that couples well with most of their beer-match offerings.


“JT in the flesh, patronizing his own goods at the Manukan”
