Recently, we have gone to Backyard Kitchen and Brew at Uptown Mall in BGC to try out their new dishes. Well, it was also our first time to dine at Backyard and honestly, we were really impressed on how the place looked and the vibe it made us feel. Before, we thought that Backyard was just another drinking place where the food is just so so but after trying out the 11 new dishes and 2 new desserts, we realized that Backyard Kitchen and Brew was for real. If you have tried Backyard before, find time to visit it again after work, during your lunch break, or when you go out on the weekends. Because Chef Ed Bugia has prepared special dishes that is good for sharing and dishes that will make you realize what makes Backyard so good.

Lineup of NEW Backyard dishes by Chef Ed Bugia!
Here’s the young and very talented chef of Backyard, Chef Ed Bugia! Together with his partners at Backyard, Chef Ed developed new dishes and platters to satisfy the cravings of big groups of diners. Which means—most of the new dishes at Backyard have big portions and are for sharing. Chef Ed also highlighted the use of Hanger Steak in some dishes because of its beefiness and quality.
Here are the NEW dishes of Backyard! Let’s EAT!
Shredded or eaten off the cob, this is a welcome addition to the already stacked menu of Backyard Kitchen + Brew because of its smoky and savory flavor. We loved Backyard’s version of this Mexican grilled corn!
For only Php 295, steak and salad in one dish? Why not! This was one of the many ‘sulit’ dishes at Backyard. The steak cut might not be the usual expensive cut but it was tender and it was packed with lots of flavor.
Crispy flatbread with heaps of steak and bacon, what more can you ask for, right? We got at least 2 strips of this flatbread because it was really delicious and meaty. This loaded flatbread is perfect for sharing with friends and family.
Backyard’s Philly Cheesesteak looked almost exactly like the ones we would normally see on TV. The hanger steak and the homemade cheese sauce combination was extremely tasty! Well done, Chef Ed!
Creamy and rich pasta dish with a generous amount of beautifully cooked prawns!
Flavorful patty with well-seasoned steak fried rice. This plate of loco burger steak is perfect to fill-up hungry bellies.
A brunch staple that can be eaten anytime of the day. Tender char-grilled hanger steak with a sweet and tangy sauce, sealed with fries and eggs.
The seafood tasted fresh and the cilantro gave a refreshing flavor to the already flavorful broth. This dish fits to be a good “pulutan”.
Lightly battered fish cooked to a perfect crisp. Not to mention, we liked the how comforting the mashed peas and fresh cut fries were.
We liked the consistency in how they cook their hanger steak. Tender and grilled well. The shrimps were plump and juicy and the mashed potato was creamy.
Oh these coffee crusted baby back ribs! The coffee crust seeped through the meat of the ribs which made it really tasty. The waffle fried chicken was amazing, too. The cinnamon sugar and maple syrup was really present in the batter of the chicken.
After devouring all these mouthwatering dishes, time to satisty our sweet cravings. The choco cake was moist and was loaded with chocolate. The mantecado ice cream was a perfect pair. The leche flan cheesecake was creamy and smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. Craving satisfied!
Chef Ed Bugia did a great job cooking up Backyard’s new dishes. We enjoyed both, the delectable and well executed dishes plus, having it to share with friends. Backyard Kitchen + Brew is not just a place for drinks and happy hour, but it is also a place for good food meant to be shared with family or with friends.
