One of the few establishments that was open late at UP Town Center. Grabbed a beer and catch up with a friend of mine before heading home. Ordered San Mig lemon (65PHp) haven't tried their food though.

For the finale of our training in early July, my then-trainees and I went to this joint to wind down. I must say that I loved their interiors and the overall ambiance-- a nice chillout spot. B-)

I had the Backyard Burger and the Butter Beer. The former was a little bland for my taste (tho this could be improved with condiments) while the latter was perfect. I will probably visit it again soon.

Everything we serve here is sinful. This what our server told us when we asked about their food. The statement is so true because almost everything we had was rich and laced with fat.

The nachos was was mixed with mac n' cheese. It was a bit bland in flavor but you could see it oozing with cheese. The pork sisig had blobs of taba that gave it a rich taste. The pork belly as expected was pure fat swimming in sweet sauce. They also had an interesting way of cooking fried chicken. It had waffle breading with topped with cinammon syrup. It kinda gave a unique twist to your garden variety chicken.

Unless I wanna to kick the bucket early, I would not dine there everyday, but its good to be sinful once in a while.

Hmmmm. Not that eager to go back. Found the place overpriced yet the food is forgettable.

Potato Soup was bland amidst the outpour of ingredients. The chicken skin was good, usual chicken skin flavor, nothing remarkable. Not too oily though.

Nachos were just plain ok. Surprisingly, I didn't like their Backyard Burger! I am a fan of burgers but I don't know. Nothing special about this. Bread was dry and kinda hard to chew. Loved 8 Cuts way even more! Beef patties of 8 Cuts were a lot tastier than this.

My friend ordered their Chicken sandwich which I think was the best among all our orders! It was definitely delicious and stuffing.

Okay I remembered we also had their flavored beers. Caramel and Butter beers were the best. So plus 1 star for that! Service and place was good. Though people flock here most of the time. I don't know why. Haha. Peace!

I am not a patient woman... Waiting is difficult for me... So while waiting for some important news earlier this week, I felt soooo tense... I was a bundle of nerves and I haven't slept well in about a week... I had to do something... So, I asked my bf to accompany me for a round or two of beer on a Sunday night...128517 #smart #tamangsolusyon

UPTC is just crowded on weekends... We were about to go to Rub, but I did not want to wait while waiting (so as not to induce some form of existential crisis)... We just headed to Backyard...

I ordered a glass of Salted Caramel beer initially and we shared an order of their salted egg chicken skin... Ah, beer and cholesterol... A classic combination and a match made in heaven... I happily downed the contents of my glass and craved for another... I decided to try their butterbeer for my second round.... Noooooooo!!!! Why does it taste like beer plus Anchor butter???128529128529128529 Removing the foam did not improve the taste... I found it weird, though I really wanted to like it... Oh well... Sadly, I couldn't finish it... What a waste of perfectly good alcohol...

Lesson learned: I am sticking to the Salted Caramel beer next time...

First time to try this place cause Rub was jampacked. And also because I always listen to BNO so somehow they got me interested.

It was already around 1pm when we got there and they had a decent crowd. Maybe that's why no servers greeted nor assisted us when we walked in.

Next, the place was hot! Not sure if the airconditioning unit was broken or what.... But our seat didn't feel comfortable. But since we were hungry, we decided to stay anyway.

We ordered two of their best sellers: the chicken and the slow roasted pork.

128020 was bland. All the flavor was on the outside (I guess the seasoning and the little honey was okay) but when you bite into it, there was nothing. Good thing they had sriracha!

128055 was better. It was juicy and tasty. Problem was they didn't give us any knife so it was a little hard to use fork and spoon to tear the meat apart. We got the mac and cheese to go with the pork but somehow the mac and cheese failed. It looked gooey and all but there wasn't really enough cheesiness flavor to it.

What made this visit an okay one, was probably the price. The price was acceptable. P600++ for two plates. But might not really come back anytime soon... Cause I prefer my food flavorful and not bland 128513

'di na natuto...

Gave this place a second chance, still a fail.

Their Iced Tea is good I give them that. And this salad with Quinoa is overflowing with texture and flavors. But that's it. The other's we tried were just ok.

What's worse is the service. It took roughly 30mins for a dish to come out. Tinalo pa ang pacing ng 7 Course Fine Dining. By the time lumabas yun last dish e wala na kami gana kumain.

The redeemer is their Pizzookie. Aba dapat lang specialty nila yun e.. 128514 If you are reading this and would still want to push through then definitely get their Pizzookie. 128077

I like the ambiance, cozy & casual. Great place to chill.

Kitayama Steak was pretty good, tasty but a bit salty. The Macaroni Nachos was suuuuper heavy, definitely order this for a bigger group.

The Waffle Breaded Chicken was a disappointment, the dish was very bland. The brioche toast that came with it was meh!

I was expecting something good from this place. The restaurant seems to be a hit especially towards the evening. They have live band (at least on my visit which was a monday). Smoking place outside and another exit/entrance leading to the mall.
It's an unexpected Christmas party for high school friends. I was just invited by one classmate i did not know we were about 15 pax.

128204Pork belly
2-3 pieces (depending how big the cut is.. In my experience we got 3 slices) pork. Very tender and fatty with this tangy tomato ketchup on top. The meat tastes good. Somekind of purple cabbage coleslaw was served as well. Just okay... Choice of either mac and cheese or rice. I chose mac and cheese. And it was just a no for me. It lacks taste. As in i'm like eating a sticky mac pasta.
128204Backyard burger
I like how thick their patty is. I think i am gonna be busog with this order; however the taste is super salty and the pepper taste was too competitive with the saltiness. For those who will eat the patty alone, sorry, you will have to intake the carbs as well so that your palate wont be smoldering in saltiness..  The chips were salty too!
128204128534Fetuccini (featured)
The sauce was too runny. The tomato taste was diluted. And i think the pasta was a bit undercooked. No need to say much more
128204fries
The fries were thick, unevenly cut and oily. That is why it became soggy instantly. It comes with 5 addons. The cheese, the meat, the ketchup, sourcream, and japapeño.

The service was great though, however they are not prepared for too many cistomers. The truth is, 5 of us were about to order their pork cheek howevr it was out of stock!!! I suggest they close already. LOL. However. They should have anticipated this kind of event and should have stocked enough.
