The second most memorable ribs place for me since Rack’s- Rub Ribs & BBQ! I’ve been hearing a lot about this place lately from friends- mostly from Ladi, Joal and James’ office mate, Edward. The latter invited us here for a quick dinner after working hours and I finally got to try it! The journey to Rub isn’t a walk in the park though, I suggest you read further to uncover our agonizing yet fulfilling adventure here!
Family Brunch Raki’s BBQ Ribs w/ 3 Sidings – 685 PHP
6PM- we met at GA Tower along EDSA just below MRT’s Boni Avenue Station. Apparently, Joal got out of the office around 7:30pm so we had to forfeit our 6:30pm reservation. To get to the Pasig branch, make a turn to Pioneer Ave. from EDSA, then to United St. until it becomes East Capitol Drive. When you see a barrage of restaurants and cars parked on the sidewalks along the last street, then you’re in the right place.
A little pass 8pm- we drove by the Pasig branch and saw the queuing lines on Rub Ribs & BBQ hit the streets. Sure enough we weren’t going to get our ribs there on time, we decided to go to the Tomas Morato / Timog branch. To get there, just make a turn to Sct. Rallos along Tomas Morato and you’ll be on your way.
Around 9:30pm- We made it though we placed ten in the waiting list. I was surprised to see that even in this ungodly hour after dinner people still craved to dine here, with others resorting to take outs so they won’t have to wait in line. Edward said that it’s always full so it’s a smart move to make a reservation beforehand. The waiter got our number and said that he’ll contact us when our turn is near.
That said, we lounged and walked around Tomas Morato, patiently tried to wait. James and I couldn’t hold our hunger so we just ate cup noodles from a street vendor, some smokes and drinks.
Having nothing to do anymore, we went back even though we haven’t been notified by the waiter yet. And what do you know, luck’s on our side! From number ten we immediately got promoted to fourth- I guess others just couldn’t wait the wait. We got our table around 10pm and so of course we immediately ordered up per my friends’ recommendation- Raki’s BBQ Ribs, the thing we came here for.
Super Duo Raki’s BBQ Ribs w/ 2 Sidings – 370 PHP
I guess just by looking at the picture I won’t have to be descriptive in telling you how the ribs taste- waiting for almost four hours for this was totally worth it! For a first time, yes, but I guess we’ll have to be smarter and on time the next time we eat here so as to be efficient in time and hunger management. So yes, I’m telling you to try the place out! The ribs are definitely a must-experience even if just once. You can take your dates here, too!
In the end we ended up paying 280php each. Costing are as follows: Family Ribs (685 php) + Duo Ribs (370 php) + 7 Rice (?) = 1,120 PHP / 4. Not bad!
They were literally gone in five minutes, rice and sidings included! A second serving was totally in order.
