Who doesn’t love barbeque, right? Pinoys are overly fond of food cooked on skewers over hot coals. It’s not any surprise that barbeque often is part of a party menu. Nor is it a wonder why it’s sold at almost every street corner.
Those who love eating street food but dislike smelling like one would enjoy dining at the newest Pinoy hangout in town – Bar-B-Skew. Bar-B-Skew, the first and ONLY automatic char-grilled skewers restaurant in the country, offers us a different way of enjoying barbeque.
Like the usual streetside cart, you get to choose the meat and innards you want and watch them get cooked right in front of you.
Unlike the streetside cart though, you don’t end up smelling like barbeque yourself and you get to eat in a safe and clean environment. This unique setup was conceptualized by Wero Doma Jr based on his experiences in exploring local cuisines in other countries.
Upon entering the restaurant, you’d think you’re in a laboratory of some sort with the stainless steel tables and huge pipes hanging from above. On closer look, you’d see that the stainless steel tables each have a built-in automatic rotating charcoal grill. Once you start barbequing your food over hot charcoals, you’d be thankful for those huge pipes above that extract the smoke.
Among the skewered delights you can choose from are chicken & pork bbq, cream dory, chicken & pork isaw (intestines), chicken liver, chicken gizzard, and hotdog. Then there are also vegetables, corn, and fruits. Lastly, there’s a sweet treat for kids and kids-at-heart – marshmallows!
Another great thing about Bar-B-Skew is that you get to choose the exact flavor you want with the various sauces available (ginger sesame, sweet, sweet and spicy, garlic butter, and hot pepper) for basting your food. You can use them as is or even combine them for a truly unique flavour.
Of course, aside from skewers, they also have a buffet which usually include a fried chicken, kangkong, sisig and a dessert.
Lunch Buffet is at P299, Dinner Buffet P349 on weekdays and P399 on weekends, Midnight Buffet P299. For those on a budget, there are Sulit Meals that start at P79. Food here costs more than the neighbourhood manong’s isaw stand but, aside from the comfortable surroundings, there’s definitely more food variety here.
I’m sure you’ll miss your favorite streetside isaw Manong but you absolutely won’t miss the chitchat with friends AND the smell of smoke that clings to your clothes. Plus, the place is clean and sanitary that you wouldn’t mind taking even your little kids with you. Oh and did I mention that they have a wifi? Yes!
