Iligan's Best: Jacko's Crispy Squid

There's so many things I love about Iligan City.  And of course, food is unquestionably on top of the list. In this post, I'm sharing to you one of my favorite in the city:  Crispy Squid.


Crispy Squid is certainly one must-try dish when visiting Jacko's Kan-anan in Iligan City.  Before you say this post is an all-out shameless plug of a family business, let me tell you I'm not keen on doing that. Instead of feeding you information that would look copy-pasted from the website, I'm letting some of our customers tell you why Jacko's Crispy Squid is one of Iligan's bests. ;)

Purple Slipperz highly recommends Jacko's Kan-anan's Crispy Squid. I have always been craving for this... It's a deep fried squid stuffed with spices, bathed in its family recipe unique sauce and topped with minced onion, bell pepper, tomato and spring onions. Hmmm... describing it in detail makes me hungry.Once you taste it, you can't get over it! Hahaha... hmmmm now I'm starving...

And here's what Vic of has to say:
(Iligan City) is famous because of their countless majestic waterfalls like Maria Cristina, but did you know other than those they also have Jacko’s Kan-anan? I got intrigued when a few of the CDOBloggers would talk about how heavenly their food is and yes it is indeed.

Alex of included food trip at Jacko's Kan-anan as one of the Top 10 Family Fun Summer Activities. Here's what he had to say:
Ever since I have tasted the food at Jacko's over at Hinaplanon, Iligan City my ever favorite is the crispy squid and the lumpia shanghai. If you are tired with the food that you can buy from the many fast foods, then, I recommend Jacko's Kan-anan. 
If that isn't enough to convince you just yet, here's one post grabbed from Jacko's Kan-anan's fan page.

But wait, there's more! (LOL). Here are more photos of Crispy Squid.
