These are the two leading chicken lechon stand in our country. It is very known because it's an instant meal, specially if we have visitors. And both chickens are delicious, but which do you like more? If you are in front of the two chicken lechon store, where would you go? Me, I like the taste of Andoks' chicken more. It's a food which I can't refuse. I really like Andok's chicken specially if it will be match with Coke. How about you, which do you like more, Andoks or Baliuag?

Those two are popular names of chicken lechon store in our country, the Philippines. It has many branches nationwide. Both tastes good so I can recommend both of them. Try it and you will forget your name. Lol! Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

hey andrewboi! so you're from Cebu? Andoks is available here...Baliwag i think is not... but i think the branches of Andoks here are not that much, i saw one in Mabolo, and another one in Tabunoc, Talisay City. you should try it to know, its delicious with its sauce, but of course i think Sr. Pedro is more popular here in Cebu.

If you are talking these stuff and you are in Manila or somewhere in Luzon, it might be possible to just talk about these two. I am also from Luzon, particularly Bulacan. So I am more of a Baliuag lover. But since I am already living here in Cebu, I tasted lots of different blend and brand of chicken. Baliuag is out of the place here and Andok's has just started, I guess. Xiong Xoon, Senyor Pedro, Chicken Inasal and more, that we can choose from. But I'll tell you, Andok's really taste better than others.

So the one you like most is Baliuag chicken? Since it started from your hometown. Am I right? I got quite confused, since on your last statement, you said that Andok's really taste better than others. Is Baliuag included there? Anyway, yes there's a lot of chicken in Visayas, different tastes. But I agree with you, Andoks still taste better than the others. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

Well, about Baliuag, I can hardly recall its taste now, since I have been here for so long now. Maybe that's the reason I said the Andok's tastes a lot different from others here in Cebu. Since the question is about the two, I'll just go for Andok's.

We don't have a Baliwag nearby so I am more familiar with the taste of Andoks litson manok. It is so tasty. It tastes better than other foreign roasted chicken. It is also accessible to passersby so whenever they feel hungry, they can buy it immediately.

I have not tried Baliuag since I have not seen any in our place. I think there are no branches yet of Baliuag in our area. Well, Andoks is great tasting. Sadly I cannot make a comparison since I have not eaten Baliuag chicken yet.

Andok's has really more branches than Baliuag. It's ok if you haven't tasted Baliuag yet. Just stick with Andok's. It's taste is satisfying enough. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

hi there! i have tasted both but i prefer Andoks! i like its sauce and the chicken is really good...when i am still in manila, its really popular among the others...but now that i am here in Cebu, i think Andoks is not as popular coz there's so many other "lechon manok" available here which tastes are also really good and cheaper than the branded one... one of the most popular here i guess is the Sr Pedro. very much different to our Andoks coz they have no sauce like Andoks...their sauce is just a soy sauce with vinegar...but it also tastes good! i also taste one local chicken lechon here and i can say that its one of my favorites! its really tasty and the spices are very good! well its not available in the whole cebu, its just in this one town here and the store is just a small one...i remember when i first tasted it...my husband and i eat all whole chicken and empty a liter of coke...(partnered with puso) Puso is a rice cooked in i think its a coconut leaves....not sure but its good, counterpart of our "binalot" in banana leaves... ooops! i think i have said too much...you're just asking about Andoks and Baliuag... i'm sorry, i just can't help my self sharing other lechons...because "lechon manok" or "inasal na manok" is really my all time favorite...so everytime i saw a new one...i wanted to try it always! have a nice day!

Haha, it's obvious that you really like chicken. Yes, I know that there are many variety of chicken taste in Visayas, the one I have tasted is chicken in Bacolod. They're also tastes good. But I just love Andoks the most. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

I'm more familiar with Andoks' than Baliwag Lechon. I guess it's because Andoks' has been introduced to me since I was little and it's been our family's choice for years. I'm still open to Baliwag and whichever chicken that would give me food satisfaction wins.. hehe.

Yes, I agree that Andoks is really more popular than Baliwag. Also in our family, Andoks is what we used to eat than Baliwag. I can say Andoks tastes better, but Baliwag is also good. They can be both winners. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

In taste, I rank them equal but since Baliwag Lechon is cheaper than Andoks by 20 pesos (or even more), then I'll choose Baliwag.. Same delicious taste and yet, cheaper price..

I see, budget wise, Baliwag is a better buy. So yes, if you are managing your budget, it's better to buy Baliwag than Andoks. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

Yes, Andoks is really a good "pasalubong" or present that anyone will surely love. I haven't taste that "Bugong" chicken yet, hopefully it will soon have a branch here in our place, so that I will also know the taste of it. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

Hello to you. It seems that all Filipinos are really fond of Lechon Manok. If I were to choose from the two, I would prefer Baliuag. I prefer the taste, it is tastier. I also like the sauce, they really give that much to their customers. One thing is that Baliuag is nearer where we live than Andoks.
@markmoney (2868)

Yes, Filipinos really love chicken lechon. Yes Baliuag is delicious, and since it is nearer in your place, then you really have to love it, less effort and less gasoline if you have a car to buy. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

I haven't Baliuag lechon, but they say its good too. So for me I choose Andok's, I love their chicken lechon match with atsara, and the liempo with mang tomas. Hmmmm... Delicious!
@markmoney (2868)

Oh yes, they are really delicious. We have it here yesterday until now, both the chicken and liempo from Andok's. Hmmm.. Yummy! Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

Hi there kababayan, well definitely Andoks just ate chicken from Andoks yesterday. Here in our place we dont have Baliuag chicken but i saw already some stores in other place but i dont have a chance a chicken from them. So right now i am stick to Andoks, yup your right its delicious chicken plus the sauce. Maybe if i will have a chance to eat chicken from Baliuag i will compare the taste and finally choose what's the best chicken here =) ... Keep on posting good discussion and happy mylotting =)

Hi! Me too, we bought Andoks chicken yesterday and we still have some here. That's the reason that made me start this discussion. Chicken from Andoks is really delicious, yes I also do like the taste of their sauce. Baliuag chicken tastes good also, but Andok's just tastes better. Yup you better try Baliuag chicken too so that so you would know which is more delicious. Thanks for your response. Happy myLotting!

Lechon Manok - Roasted Chicken
Only Filipinos can relate to this discussion. Your question is which between Andoks or Baliuag is my choice. Well dear, Andoks is more tasty even their sauce is more superior than other roasted chickens around. However I find the preparation not really very healthy. I could see how ashes would fly around the chicken as they are being cooked so now I've learned to just roast my own chicken at home. Anyway I have an oven so I just have to spend a little effort to make my own and I can be sure it is even more tasty and better yet the preparation is certainly clean and safe.
