We were supposed to go to Silantro but the lines were long and we were hungry, so we decided to eat here.

BIG MISTAKE.

Everything we ordered were just bad. 128557 Plus, service wasn't outstanding either.

Nachos - The chips were just okay, crunchy but bland. The cheese sauce they used was runny and did not taste like cheese at all. The barbecue sauce was okay. The meat topping (I think those were from the ribs?) were cold, fatty and also did not taste good. If they had put sour cream, it would've been much better.

Steak Combo - Hard-to-chew steak covered in gravy to mask the lack of flavor and seasoning, paired with rice that had some uncooked parts. Need I say more?

The waitress who took our orders was just forgetful. She forgot to place one order of our steak, and didn't even apologize. I heard from the other table that she also forgot to place their order. Also, the glass that we used for drinking smelled strongly of detergent. 128528

We're never setting foot in this place again.

Dry Rub Rib Mountain by Brad and Pit's Ribshack: YEY

Brad and Pit's -- with a name like that, it's easy to dismiss this place as a serious rib place but try their Dry Rub Rib Mountain and you'll see that there's so much this place has to offer other than a chuckle.

The flavor profile is more adventurous as compared to their regular bbq'ed ribs. The first thing you'll notice is the strong, full-bodied mustard base. I have to agree that there was something acrimonious with the idea of grilled ribs and mustard, at least in the Philippines where barbecue in general is seen as something sweet, that it took me a few moments before I was able to appreciate how good the pairing was. The mustard was sharp and almost nasal, but have it with any meat and you'd bring out the sweet taste of any livestock (in this case, pork). Match your protein with some starch while you're at it. I ordered their burrito rice (corn, cabbage, meat, black beans, cumin) which go well with any of their ribs (they have 4 flavors: original, spicy, dry rub and havana). While the crust wasn't as charred as the Original, it wasn't fall-of-the-bone either. You would need to put in a bit of an effort to pry the meat off or use your hands if you don't mind getting messy. I'm no cook but I think keeping their meat moist is something the restaurant needs to work on.

The interior was quite interesting: eclectic design that ties old-barn charm with whimsical kitsch, goofy one-liners mixed-in with cheesy inspirational quotes adorn the walls, & warm hospitable staff abound ready and smiling. There's plenty of room inside but I chose to dine al fresco. I am not sure if it was a waiting area for orders to-go, but the porch is a good place to enjoy the noise of the busy Kapitolyo street while you eat.

All-in-all, this place is great for hanging-out and eating good food. I heard they also have bands playing occasionally. I'd stay longer but I'm full from eating 2 orders of ribs (I do my reviews alone). This is the 2nd time I've ordered the same amount since my rule is to eat the same food at least twice before doing a review. I look forward to coming back, hopefully, with some company.

Original Rib Mountain by Brad and Pit's: OK LANG.

Price: Php245

If you are looking for fall-off-the-bone ribs, this is not it. It was such a struggle that I actually had to use a knife to scrape the meat from the bone (first time i used one on pork ribs)! Yes, I could have used my hand but I prefer using utensils. I'm maarte that way.

Nevertheless, my complaint goes only as far as the tenderness of the meat. For all else, it was fine. The meat was good and the bbq sauce was sweet and tangy as expected. Some people might feel that the recipe needs to turn up the heat a little but personally, I'd rather have it as an option. You can ask for chili bbq sauce should you want it more spicy. I tasted it with my Dry Rub ribs as a dip, but ironically, it wasn't standard on this one. Maybe, they just forgot to put one on my order.

There's excessive charring here and there and the cuts of the bones weren't that clean (i almost cracked a molar twice because there were bits and pieces of the bones stuck in the meat). The coleslaw wasn't wattery (I still don't like coleslaw) but the corn would have been better if it was buttered. I ordered the smallest size for Php245 but they have options that go up to XXXXL (Php1950). .

Catchy and amusing as the restaurant's name is, I think the true merit of Brad and Pit's is not on this one but in their Dry Rub Rib Mountain. More on that in the next review.

Erratum: Brad and Pit's sells the hot version separately as the Spicy Barbie Mountain. That one has the aforementioned chili bbq sauce. My bad.

"Milkshake" looked like IceScramble and it tasted just like an expensive icescramble. 128078🏼

Ribs were okay for P150.
Rice quality was frustrating.

Choco lava was pwede na.

Oder ribs just because it's the specialty, it's nothing close to real smoked ribs though. No smoke ring, flavour is there probably from charcoal grilling after braising. The fries ordered as a side are plentiful, short and broken up though. The best part of the meals was the chicken wings with Cartibbean glaze served with a cloyingly yellow dip was surprisingly wasn't half bad. Won't be coming back soon till I get a full round of the Kapitolyo restaurants, not avoiding it altogether also. It's a cheap meal at best.
