  • Harold is such a breath of fresh air. The only BA chef I genuinely care about now

  • So excited about this video

  • ah yes, Mang Inasal and Chicken Deli's staples

  • Bro, marry me.

  • sir saan ang kanin xD pero looks so good tlga TT

  • I like my meat carbonated 🤔

  • Gotta make this!!! Much respect to your people, they trained you well. Thanks for this!

  • The Yams day shirt 👏🏾 I love this guy

  • I want to know where to get Chef Harold's YAMS shirt!

  • their calamansi is orange???

  • i dont see cheese in the salad :((

  • This was really fun to watch, food made by a really likeable Chef! Kudos to BA (and the Chef)!

  • "I'm a 3 piece man kind of person" I can relate

  • respectto you being feaful. I respect

  • Sorry BA but that is no way near the real deal. The ingredients, the side, the way it was cooked is not how it should be. It's more like baked buttered chicken if you ask me.

  • *Ang sarap!!! 🤤👌😋*

  • He's gonna get it when his grama and mom hear him call them lazy. 🤣

  • Sprite 💪

  • For all those in the Motherland, there is a variety of calamansi that is orange and much more available to us in the States than the green kind. And I can assure y'all that they taste the same.

  • Those knife skills doh-

  • Happy filipino noises

  • Where’s the rice?

  • Harold rocks ! 👍

  • Wrong!!! It is not the Soda that makes the inasal different. It is the Anatto Oil which you did not have in your inasal. In short, what you grilled is not Inasal at all. It is just grilled chicken.

  • It was a bad idea to watch this at 2am 🤪😋

  • Where do u get the orange calamansi ? I've only been able to but the green(lime coloured) calamansi here in Philippines

  • This looks INCREDIBLE. Can’t wait to try make it and find those citrus fruits where I live!

  • Filipino cuisine is so underrated ♥️

  • Here for Harold.

  • My moms favourite!!

  • filipino food 🥺

  • Wowww

  • So happy you invited a Filipino chef. Thanks so much! I will definitely try this dish.

  • I can smell those chicken grilling. 😍

  • Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you'll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

  • Harold make blood meat🙏

  • If it doesn’t turn your fingers orangey red then it’s not inasal!!!

  • THAT IS NOT KALAMANSI AHCKKK! But this looks good tho 🥵

  • Why does the kalamansi look more like kyat-kyat lol


  • Ok i been living in the philippines 7 years and i have never seen a yellow calamansi nor one that big 😳

  • Jo Koy : "Elebate the peet, Elebate the peet" Harold : "Elebate the flavor" Two Filipinos who use our accent with pride. Thank you guys

  • did he say inasal is just a marinade?

  • I never knew inasal does not include soy sauce in the marinade. I always thought there was. TIL!

  • I love how he took a giant spoonful of the mac for his taste-test - in this sort of setting most people are scared of how they might look on camera if they don't take a dainty bite.

  • Me as a native filipino seeing the calamansi: ... thats a clementine.... Bc here its ALWAYS green. Also Uncle Harold is my new fave. He's that one tito who drinks San Miguel with you while you talk about life and cook bbq


  • I LOVE HAROLD!!! this guy is GOLDEN!

  • This looks amazing!!

  • Rest in power A$AP YAMS 🙏🏽

  • It's always a good day at uncle Harold's house!

  • teach them lemongrass infused rice bruh. These white people gonna know food heaven. ✌️

  • That's a weird looking calamansi.

  • This looks soooooo good. Thank you for sharing the food of your culture and family. I am here for it!!! You were so fun to watch!

  • You know you guys can go back to the test kitchen now, right?

  • You know it's good when you're drooling and have snot running down your nose!

  • Going to make this for my boyfriend tomorrow. Absolutely obsessed with Harold! My mouth is watering watching this!
