Luisa’s Fried chicken is Bacolod City’s most famous fried chicken restaurant. In a city that loves barbecued chicken, Luisa stands out for offering the original Chinese style fried chicken in Bacolod city.
Luisa’s Fried Chicken has been in operation for more than 25 years now. The location is still the same. They’re still at the Se Ho Lim Bldg., Narra Avenue, Capitol Shopping, Bacolod City
Here’s a photo of the old Luisa. The floors are dingy, the walls are cracked and peeling but this place serves perfectly fried chicken and the most garlic-filled fried spareribs in Bacolod. This place drew crowds and it still does 25 years later!
The old owner, Mr. Joseph Hao was also the waiter of the place. Customers would come in and be served by a nice, smiling old Chinese man with a killer goatee. Decoration was very minimal in this place except for a framed jigsaw puzzle of a kitten on the stained walls.
Now, 26 years later, the owner’s son Kenderson Hao remodeled and revamped the place, making it a modern and cleaner location where everyone can come and enjoy his family’s favorite fried chicken and garlic spareribs!
Gone are the old seats, the stained walls. Everything is new and it looks pleasant and better lit! You won’t be ashamed to bring your guests here.
Kenderson Hao also streamlined the menu, He decided to focus on just 5 items on the menu – Luisa’s best selling items.
The hallmark fried chicken is very good. It’s perfectly fried and it comes with a tasty Chinese style sauce. The skin is tender, crisp and delicate. The sauce is what makes it super tasty so ask for extra.
We also had the famous garlic spareribs. Let me warn you, you really shouldn’t eat this stuff if you’re a vampire! 🙂 If you’re the type who likes the fried garlic in roasted peanuts or who just likes garlic in particular, this dish is for you.
It is fried spare-ribs encrusted all over with cloves of fried garlic!
The garlic taste is so strong, you need more than a soda to wash it away. It’s so good and garlicky! It’s like you can kill vampires with your breath after eating.
Another of our favorites is Machang – Chinese sticky rice balls filled with meat and other fillings. What sets this apart from regular Japanese rice balls is that the Machang uses seasoned glutinous rice making it much more flavorful!
Luisa’s fried chicken is big, flavorful and already a meal in itself!
