This beetle car-grill caught our attention when we were strolling along Sabang beach last weekend. I love how the beach is infront of you while you dine, giving you that perfect island vibe. The ambiance and location is just excelllent128076

However, I did not enjoy the food as much as I expected. We ordered the Bulalo barbeque for P200 and the Tinopak for P150. The barbeque for me is overcooked and dry while the tinopak is a bit bland. It's pricey compare to other grilling places in Baler.

What makes up for it is their refreshment area. For P40, you can have a choice of their tropical juices, I ordered santol flavor and tell you it was refreshingly good! Perfect for that sunny afternoon.

If you want to experience that island vibe, then I recommend you try this place. However, if you rather satisfy that hungry tummy then consider other places, like the Yellow Fin Bar and Grill. They offer much decent food and serving. 128521

Last night while strolling under the beautiful and bright full moon of Baler 127765 at the Sabang Beach Walkway 127754127796128166 and planning to have dinner at Baler Surfer Grill but unfortunately we haven't tried the resto yet because of the long lines... hmmm... it is really famous here in Baler. And we find the Volkswagen griller was a catchy one, too cute. A tourist spot. Lots of visitors from different places taking pictures. 128521128663

Today, before we leaved the place, after we checked out at Costa Pacifica, finally, we tried Baler Surfer Grill... Yehey! 127881

We expect the restaurant will be affordable and we will have a good time and they will served delicious and yummy grilled meals. Yes, indeed, they did. 128077🏼

For Php200.00 or less per meal served with rice and corn, we tried the following:

Grilled Bulalo - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5

Grilled Liempo - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Nilagang Haring Baka - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

The place was not a "sosy" type, it's like we were eating in a "kanto" restaurant, serving in a nice and "sosy" plate. 128540

Plus the sea breeze, whooaahhh! 128561 (kaya ako nakapagbigay ng 5 stars) I find it relaxing while having lunch.

Its a must try in Baler. 128076🏼

I absolutely loved the ambience and food! Made the Baler experience more authentic. I ordered Liempo Pro and Tinopak (Tinolang may Pakwan). The liempo tasted great almost like baby back ribs yung tenderness nya. Tinopak just wasn't my taste though. It's a self-service kind of diner so we had to pick up our orders when our number was called, which took about 15 minutes.

After surfing the whole day, you'll love to eat here at Baler Surfer Grill. Love the concept, the food, and the affordable prices. That Red volks is a plus factor! Bulalo bbq is a must try! 127830127860128523

Being raised in the U.S., grilling food has become part of my culture. I've learned how to grill meat, fish, vegetables, so grilling became one of my forte as a home cook.

Going to Baler Surfer Grill took me back home to the U.S. I very much enjoyed their grilled bulalo (beef shank). It was grilled perfectly. You can clearly taste the beef. The BBQ sauce was very good as well. Just the right amount was placed on the beef to where it did not overpower the taste of the beef.

Aside from the food, the service was great. The persons working behind the counter to take our orders was very welcoming. Aesthetically, having the VW Bug as a grill was the cherry of the restaurant.

This Volkswagen Beetle food master is a must-try when you visit Baler!!! Bulalo BBQ is the bomb!! They have beginner meals (smaller serving) which cost Php 89 each and Pro meals (biiiig serving) which cost Php200. We tried Bulalo BBQ and grilled chicken pro meal. Definitely worth the price!!! Good service and the ambiance of course is veryy niiice because it is located at the beachfront. They have refreshment station where you can buy uniquely flavored juices and shakes. I tried the Kidya(ponkan)-Calamansi juice for Php 40 and it was so refreshing. Perfect for the hot weather!
Tip: Visit this place at around 3pm since it gets extremely crowded during lunchtime.

There are 4 Surfer Meal Pro Options: Bulalo BBQ, Liempo BBQ, Chicken BBQ and Durado (fish). A pro costs P200.

I would consider this as my favorite restaurant in Baler amongst all that I've tried. The service was fast, serving size was decent, taste was good and presentation was simple yet appetizing.

Right inside the compound of this restaurants you can also buy fresh fruit shakes and juices that can quench your thirst under the hot summer sky. I wasn't able to take note of the name of the juice place but it has a kubo of its own.

You won't miss this place, their red Beetle Car Grill will definitely catch your attention. 128077🏻

This red old beetle always gets a good view of Sabang beach every day!

On my second day alone (really, it's true! 128513) in Sabang, past lunch time, I decided to eat out near where I am staying.

By Baler food prices, Surfer Grill prices are expensive; 89 for their beginner meal (topped rice in a bowl) and 200 for their professional meal (bigger serving in a chopping board). To me, the ambience and delivery is reasonable enough.128077🏾

The taste, IMHO, it's good, even better than some of the less pricey meal in Sabang. It's worth the try!

If you are hungry and don't mind paying 200php for a meal, try grilled bulalo, sulit sa laki ng serving! 128513

Waiting time a bit slow but not as slow as Yellow Fin Bar & Grill!

Ordered Pork BBQ and it's just 89 pesos! Perfect when you're on a tight budget. Heehee

I love this place! Its classic, they turned an old Volkswagen as the main attraction - using it to cook BBQ's.
Very refreshing place to eat and you can see surfers while dining. 127754

A must visit place when in Baler 128076

Grilling in a Volkswagen is so cute. It's just a small place. I love their grilled bulalo and liempo it is so tender. :)

I thought this will be the highlight of our food adventure in Baler, but it wasn't. The concept was unique but it lacks delivery.

First consideration is the price, 200 pesos plated meal in baler means luxury.

Second, the limited menu. Yes they only do grilling but what else to grill aside from pork, bulalo, fish and chicken? If you have think of other food, good for you. Am just hoping they'll think of it too.

Third, waiting time. Waaaaay too long. Imagine me finishing my meal and my friend still have to wait for another 10 minutes before he gets his order which was same with mine. And imagine my friend finishing his late order and I still have to wait for another 15 minutes before our burger order came in.

Fourth, quality of food. I ordered bulalo and there was not even a single drop of marrow in the bones. The meat was tough but the rest was okay. We ordered their pitcher of watermelon drink, very refreshing. I think their salvation is the aligue sauce that comes with the grilled fish, it was ooohlala!

Fifth, false advertising. The picture of their burger in their banners were something comparable to the ones here in manila, but when it gets to our table it was a dismay. The buns were tough like they were from the sarisari store nearby. 128541 they meat was a bit dry and the cheese that they were boasting tasted usual. Blah blah blah.

For first timers in Baler, it would be nice to see the beetle grilling in action but it ends their.

If you want to try out the place but is considering the price, they have it sorted out because they got this kiddie menu, serving is good enough for a not so hungry tourist and price is around 100.

Nice concept of turning a VW into a grilling station. Food was typical grilled food not bad. Love the ribs!!!

The concept of transforming an old Beetle's hood (or what's under it) into a grill is just too cool.

And with the ribs served on a wooden chopping board, priced at P200, well it can only make it even cooler. What i meant to say is, the presentation is nice and for ribs, it's mura.

So creative! 128588

The ribs aren't bad at all! And you get to it eat by the beach!
