I was feeling a bit homesick after two weeks of vacationing, and dining at a new resto here in the metro would be the right way to welcome me back. It was a random dinner with my blogger friends Marco, Jeemah and Atty. Ethelbert and we had been talking about visiting this new rib place and twas about time we did.
Ribpublic is located at the road behind Coco Mall and is on your left when driving along the one way street. We tried 4 of 6 offerings on the menu. The Ribpublic, Wild West Wings, Space Shrimps and Pop! Fish and Chips.
Attentive and friendly staff is always a plus to any restaurant and Ribpublic didn’t fall short in this area, smiling waiter and cashier just set the mood that its going to be a good dinner. 🙂
We started the meal with Ribpublic’s Pop! Fish and Chips (138php). 3 battered fish fillet with fries on the side and tartar sauce. I personally find both the fries and fish too oily than the usual. The fish could use a bit of a lemon slice and pepper to taste too.
Butter Garlic Space Shrimps (168php). The serving came with 12 pieces of shrimps in butter and garlic. Tasted good but this should not be served on wax paper, for the paper tends to soften as the oil sips in, and bits of wax paper mix with the butter oil as you scoop in.
Buffalo Wild West Wing (158php). This one would be my favorite at Ribpublic. 6 pieces of chicken wings with chili sweet sauce. Warning, at first bite, the spice might be a bit strong, but fades away very quickly and mellows down to sweetness. Also available in garlic parmesan.
And finally, The Ribpublic (188.00ph)! Smoky sweet ribs with rice and corn kernels on the side. Though its not the ‘meat falls off the rib’ kind, its serving size would give you a big burp.And the smoky sweet flavor didn’t get through the the inside layer of the meat, so better ask for extra sauce.
Another thing I’ve noticed is that Ribpublic had chairs and tables set up on the sidewalk. I hope they can take it out, and let the sidewalk be used as a sidewalk. Plus it is a bit appalling, for the stench from the drainage can be smelled when seated at the sidewalk set up.
But I love the chalk art and the space mural inside the resto! And they have a clean restroom too! <3
Can’t wait to try their garlic parmesan Wild West Wings and Sweet and Spicy Shrimps. ‘Til we meet again Ribpublic. ^_^
