Manokan Country is a food strip near SM City Bacolod. It home to dozens of stalls serving the most delicious Bacolod chicken inasal. Just a heads up, there are no air-conditioned stalls in the complex. And since it is an open space, be mindful of your belongings. Dining at Manokan Country will not be complete without eating with your bare hands, that’s why restaurants do not offer utensils by default. However, utensils are available upon request.


2. Calea Pastries and Cake
