Moud Halal Roasted Chicken
827 Globo de Oro St,
Price Range: P
A hole-in-the-wall in the Muslim district of Quiapo. Famously known for its juicy rotisserie style chicken freshly roasted all day, Mouds also offers shawarmas, burgers and typical Maranao dishes at very affordable prices.
Touted as the best chicken in Manila, do not be deceived or put off by the hole-in-the wall style restaurant- you will not find chicken as delicious as this with a delicious price tag to match.
A piece of chicken will set you back P60- try it with one of the 3 styles of rice- kabsa, java or plain for an extra P10.
Mouds is not only popular among the locals but also has a following all around Manila. During Ramadan, tents are set up outside selling noodles, pancit (a steal at P20 for a generous serving), fried chicken, samosas (P10 each!) and other sweet treats at very affordable prices!
The restaurant sign can be easy to miss, but ask anyone and they will point you in the right direction- it is just a few steps from the Golden Mosque, or you'll notice it by the roasted chicken outside. Modest seating is available over 2 floors. Condiments like hot sauce, calamansi and chillis are provided free of charge.
