I’ve been hearing about RUB from friends for a few weeks now so we decided to take a long trek to Tomas Morato from Alabang just to see what the buzz was all about.
RUB is pretty accessible. Along Tomas Morato, we took a right on Shakeys at Scout Rallos. Just a few meters away, this little Red, White and Black resto greeted us. The facade alone screamed “BAR-BE-CUE” and made my tummy grumble with excitement.
We first ordered some nibbles: Fish&Chips, Onion Rings, and Pepporoni Melt (my favorite!!!). Then finally after a few minutes of “nibbling”, it was the much awaited arrival of the RUB superstar.. We got a huge slab of ribs (this picture doesn’t show how massive it really is in person..or do I say, “in pig”?) and 2 side orders: Spinach and Mushroom and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
Their price points are very affordable, especially since you get top-quality ribs 🙂 A family brunch (which is good for 4) is only Php 650. A super duo (the one we ordered) is only Php 350. And singles are at 195 only. Generous appetizers called “Nibbles” start at Php 150. Their house blended iced tea comes in a pitcher for only Php 100 (this can serve the whole barkada!).
The meals are all pretty straight forward, none of that pretentious cultural fusion shizz. You want good food that hits the spot, here ya go! I’d like to call it the man’s man kind of restaurant. Big in servings, big in flavor. My final verdict: HOMAYGAAAAHD. Well done, RUB team!:)
