One of the reasons that makes people get stressed living in the city is because of the heavy traffic. In my case, to commute five hours everyday six times in a week for almost two years is one of the factors that made me decide to take a break in a short time. Ergo, I was able to attend a food event because I’m freed from the working world. And I thank Aldous for inviting me.
Indeed the city could give us a lot of stress, but if you are going to a city about ribs it’s a feast! That’s what totally happened to us, bloggers.
To start this joyride in RBCTY, served to us is Dynamite. Surprisingly, there’s no bombing happened but a spark. I mean spark means kilig, kilig means asim kilig especially with that salsa sauce. Don’t kill me, I’m not corny.
Next served is the beer’s best partner, Not Just Nachos (P198). Truly, this nachos dish is special because of the rib shreds. “I’ll stop the world, and melt with…” cheese. I love nachos!
After a long ride, we finally arrived to the Big City (P718).
Big City is good for three to four persons and you may choose four side dishes. We were able to try eight of the side dishes. I like the coleslaw, mashed ‘tato, potato salad and the thin fries that is sour cream flavor. Of course, CTY rice is a recommendation, too. We’re Asian, peeps.
Want to have a look again of Big City? This charcoal-grilled ribs is just really huge! Hitting the ribs with the lights, Big City is sparkling because of its overly drizzled barbecue sauce. I love that the sauce is not too sweet and not too sour. The meat is tender and luscious!
Now that we got the ribs, we’re going to have the wings! Their chicken wings are one of the bests I had. It’s crispy but fleshy; it’s a wings that is not intended for snacks but for a meal.
The wings that we got made us fly in heaven because the next served to us is… drum roll please! Desserts!
Queso de Bola Cake (P148) is saltier so I like the White Toblerone Cheesecake (P148) better. Both of the cakes are dense but what made me to reach heaven is because of the Decadent Brownie a la Mode (P168). The chewy brownies, rich vanilla ice cream and the oozing chocolate sauce is very sinful. I don’t know why it feels heaven when in fact it is sinful. LOL!
The restaurant’s theme is street so there are so much industrial elements to this place. RBCTY’s location is quite a secret place because you have to get in to a building that looks like an apartment. Surprisingly, it has a second floor that can accommodate up to fifty four persons. While the serving is satisfying, I am most pleased to the taste of the food that we got to try. For a restaurant to cater what is most valued to the diners – the quantity, the quality, and the price, the meal they offer is pretty much affordable. As for the service, I am very much grateful that the owner, Ms. Aya, entertained us well but as for the servers, I hope they would smile and be more energetic. 🙂 They are attentive, though.
