PhP 99 Ribs and More at Surfin' Ribs

I have heard about Surfin' Ribs before from my cousins, my foodie buddies, and through the various food festivals that they join in. When I got a PhP 99 coupon from the Hyper Wonderland brochure, I made sure i will be using that coupon. The day after the Sinulog Festival 2016 grand parade, I went to their Escario branch to use the coupon. I learned that the PhP 99 ribs are on offer only on Tuesdays and Thursdays but luckily my coupon said "everyday" so I insisted to be served such on a Monday. Fortunately, the manager on duty agreed.

Rustic Feel at Surfin' Ribs

When I walked into their Escario branch, the dimly lit dining area with brown brick-inspired walls, varnished light wood furniture, and vinyl tiled floors creates a rustic homey feel for the guests. Offers are prominently displayed on the walls.

Pete's Ribs

It's a no-brainer that the specialty dish at Surfin' Ribs is Pete's Ribs, a hearty serving of ribs, seasoned richly with selected spices, and grilled slowly until it becomes tender. The regular serving of Pete's Ribs is 500 grams before grilling, will be served with corn and carrots. Choose whether to have the ribs spicy or regular. Without rice, it  costs PhP 179, PhP 189 with rice, and PhP 199 with mashed potatoes. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, the ribs can come with unlimited rice at PhP 209 at the Escario branch and PhP 219 at the Banawa branch.

During Tuesdays and Thursdays, they serves up PhP 99 ribs, weighing 250 grams before it is grilled. A serving of the PhP 99 ribs is served with one (1) cup of rice.

They do not have too many items on their menu. But they make sure that every dish on the menu is a highlight. Other items on the menu are Alimango Claws (135), Chili Wings (PhP 169), Bobby J's Spicy Crab (435), Shrimps Platter (PhP 179), Baked Penne (PhP 99), and Crispy Pata (PhP 299).
