Ever since we started dating, food was one among the many common interests that we have. We love trying out new dishes and we love having old favorites too. For the years that we have been together, there are certain types of food and restaurants that we love going back to. One of our guilty pleasures is all-you-can-eat restaurants. Yes, we love to eat and we really eat a whole lot. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will be sharing with you about our RBCTY (Rib City) EATSperience in Pioneer, Mandaluyong. More specifically, RBCTY’s all-you-can-eat surf and turf. For only 458 pesos per person, we got to EATSperience unlimited ribs, tempura, wings, and sides plus drinks. If that didn’t get you feeling hungry, we don’t know what will!
This place is perfect for hungry tummies after a long day at work. This is a good place as well for those who want to have drinks with their meal. Each table has a set of blocks that diners can play with while waiting for their food. However, if you are a family and you have a baby with you, they do not have a high chair where you can let your baby sit. But our little one still enjoyed because of the blocks and other toys that they have. Not to mention, they also have a friendly staff.
This is what we came here for! Yes, ALL YOU CAN EAT Surf and Turf for only 458 pesos (plus 10% service charge). Ribs, Wings, Tempura and Sides with unlimited drinks. Sounds good so far? What makes it even better is that it is not a limited-time-only offer. The ALL YOU CAN EAT Surf and Turf is here to stay. Keep reading to find out more about this awesome RBCTY deal!
The first plate was the works. It had a huge slab of ribs, one side eat, veggie and shrimp tempura, and fried chicken wings. After the first plate or when you are done with whatever component you finish first, you may ask for another serving of it. So, if you can handle multiple servings of ribs, then you may keep ordering it as long as you can finish it. It goes the same with every dish on the plate. Ready to eat?
All the sides were a perfect complement to the slab of ribs and also to the chicken wings. The corn cobette with vegetables and mushroom saute were buttery and a tad salty. The mashed ‘tato was creamy, smooth, and just right. The cajun coleslaw had a good balance of flavors from the garlic, mayo and cajun spice.
Crispy and lightly-battered shrimps and vegetables. The surf and turf combo won’t be complete without this. Not to mention, their house made tempura sauce was good too. If you aren’t a big meat-eater, you can devour and enjoy several servings of their tempura.
Another component that we really enjoyed. Just like the shrimps, it was lightly-battered and crisp to perfection. We loved that it was not too greasy and that it had a crunch in every bite. RBCTY’s gravy was amazing! It was super creamy and flavorful. In our honest foodie opinion, it can compete with any other gravy we have in town.
The star of the plate, their huge slab of ribs! It was a fall-of-the-bone kind of meaty EATSperience. It was really tender and surprisingly juicy. The sauce smothered on the ribs seeped through the meat and each bite was equally full of flavor. We even used our hands to make sure we really get to enjoy indulging into it.
We definitely agree on what was written on their wall. We indeed EATSperienced good food in this city. Although we tried our very best to keep ordering, the huge rack of ribs got the best of us. It was just too good and filling! We just decided to enjoy what we can and not ruin a superb and memorable EATSperience. RBCTY definitely knows how to give their diners quality food that is worth every peso. They also have other good deals that friends and families can enjoy. Next time we have a surf and turf craving, we will surely consider RBCTY as one of our go to places! That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations! Don’t forget to tell us about your very own RBCTY EATSperience. Bye!
