Hey, hey! Lord of the Ribs, Anyone?
July 6, 2016
A spontaneous & quick food trip brought me (and two blogger friends) to Lord of the Ribs last Wednesday. When it comes to ribs, I think it's good that there are lots of foodie spots to choose from. Not all can satisfy the tummy, so let's see whether Lord of the Ribs lives up to its name.
Apparently, it isn't hard to realize that Lord of the Ribs was coined from the famous book and movie Lord of the Rings (no, I haven't read the books and watched the movies). This is probably a fun way to introduce the idea that theirs is supposedly the best ribs in town (although this definitely comes down to your own taste and preference).
It's a small place tucked between two other stores. Regardless, I like the simplicity of the interior.
Okay, it's show time! These were what we ordered.
South African grilled chicken + chili chon + java rice. The chicken was just okay for me, not very life-changing. But maybe I've had so much chicken this week. Lol.
Ribs (500g) + Curry Rice + White Sauce. This is so good -- soft and tender meat and I love the dip (it just says white sauce in the menu). I forgot what it's made of.. but it reminds me of the spicy Persian kebab dip/sauce in Tandoori at Cebu IT Park, although LOTR's white sauce is creamier.
Breaded squid + fish + prawns + mushrooms + tortilla basket. Seriously, this is worth the price. And Php 150 is already cheap for this seafood bundle. I love the mix of crunchiness and softness.
And there you have it for our quick food trip. The ribs look burnt in the photo but it's really good. Try it! I haven't tried all the ribs in the city but this one can really compete with some of the best-tasting ribs I've had so far. I was satisfied, so to speak.
