I experience eating in Jo Inato's years back. When I got back this year, I was surprised of the big change....it is no longer popular and the restaurant is almost empty (probably because of the time we went there)...the food is still good but the service was a dismay....it took us more than 30 minute to wait in an almost empty restaurant...the sauce bottles are also empty and it took few minutes to get it refilled.... I was dismayed....

I have not eaten the Chicken here, But the Halo Halo, is something to write home about. The title of the restaurant Jo's Chicken Inato, means Jo's Chicken done our way in the Bisaya Language !

However as i said I have not eaten the chicken , but the Halo Halo was delicious, and very well made. We shall be going back there to try the other delights that Jo has to offer !

Their chicken was really good and not so pricey. I went there with my friend a bit after lunch. The waiter used a stinky rag to 'clean' our table. I almost lost my appetite had we not transferred to another table.
