MANG INASAL, the leading Pinoy fast-food restaurant that serves the 2-in-1 sa Laki, Nuot sa Ihaw Sarap Chicken Inasal, has opened its 500th store in Iloilo – the place where Sarap ng Kaing Pinoy started.
The newest restaurant opened on April 30, 2018 with the first 500 customers who witnessed the unveiling of the milestone store receiving Mang Inasal coupons.
Considered to be the champion of Sarap ng Kaing Pinoy, Mang Inasal also provided authentic Pinoy dining experience that brings out everyone’s unique eating quirks. From its superior tasting local comfort food to its popular unlimited rice offer and condiments that include the much-requested chicken oil, Mang Inasal has truly endeared itself to the hearts and palates of Pinoy diners.
The 500th store is situated at Iloilo City Center, Benigno Aquino Avenue (formerly West Diversion Road) in Mandurriao, Iloilo City.
Significant people who were part of Mang Inasal’s success graced the event and admired its new look that embraces unique Filipino aesthetics and highlights modern Pinoy artistry.
The new look featured high ceiling, patterned floor tiles, and cabinet-inspired counters which contribute to a nice ambiance, making customers feel more comfortable and at home. The Pintados-inspired walls and the colorful tables and benches also lend festivity to the store.
The fast-food store also has a grill positioned at the entrance to attract passers-by with the smoke and aroma of grilled food. It also has a special counter where the So Creamy, So Sarap Pinoy Halo Halo is prepared.
Adding to the fresh store design are the new set of crew uniforms which was created by renowned fashion designer Rajo Laurel. Drawing inspiration from the fiesta atmosphere, on Mang Inasal’s “familiar and Filipino” brand image, and on his many trips to Mang Inasal stores, Laurel’s uniform design features a blue, denim-like base accentuated by strips of colors that convey a happy vibe.
Mang Inasal also received numerous awards such as the Most Outstanding Quick Service Restaurant and Most Outstanding Chicken Inasal restaurant from the 2010 Dangal ng Bayan Awards, and the Outstanding Filipino Franchise Award for two consecutive years, making it a Hall of Famer of said award.
Mang Inasal invites the public to see its new look and savor the sumptuous food that fits your taste.
