      Grilled native chicken served with hot steamed rice and a side order of pickled papaya coleslaw otherwise known to the locals as “atsara” makes for a much sought after delicacy found in Joe’s Chicken House in Cebu City. The locals go past Mc Donald’s and Kentucky Fried chicken other popular fast-food chains to make their way to this very popular local chicken house.

      The grilled native chicken served on a stick or chicken bar-b-q is very popular among its frequent patrons.

      Its’ special secret marinade makes it an easy choice as a


      favorite menu item.

      My sons just love to eat at Joe’s and my budget is not at all strained as the prices there very “friendly”.

      Another well known specialty of the house is the local dessert called halo-halo (mix-mix) which is a concoction of various sweet ingredients such as sweet beans, flan, shredded bits of jackfruit, sugar, ice cream, gelatin, sugar bits, yams, topped shaved ice, and doused with full cream or evaporated milk, All these are served together in a split half of a fresh coconut with the soft coconut meat ...


      • still in it.

        To eat, you mix up all the ingredients and in the process scrape off the soft coconut meat which is inevitably added onto the mix of all the sweet ingredients that were served in it.

        For those with an insatiable sweet tooth this is a certified treat but not advisable for the health conscious, diabetics and those counting calories.

        You’ll have no trouble finding Joe’s Chicken house as its popularity is wide spread even to the neighboring city of Mandaue which has its own franchise of Joe’s.

        It

        has a very native theme for its setting: A non aircon dining area in the main house and native type open hut with grass roofing and faucets disguised in clay jars in which to wash hands before and after eating.

        Funny though, that a place that carries the name of a foreigner specializes in local cuisine and serves specifically only native chicken at that! Whatever the case may be, many of the locals like us and the tourists who may or not be related to Joe, love the food at Joe’s chicken house.
