Big Appetites Only: Surfin’ Ribs

In the 3 years that I’ve been regularly visiting my team in Cebu, almost always we have a go-to, famous ribs place at the Ayala Terraces for our ribs craving. So whenever I will have family or friends visiting with me, that’s where I would bring them.Only today did I experience another ribs place that might just top the other one. On the outskirts of Ayala, at Escario St. is Surfin’ Ribs. A humble, little restaurant that offers a huge slab of ribs for only Php169. A whopping 169 pesos! (about $4)

The interiors are just simple and unassuming. Open air but cozy. It looks like your normal “tambayan”.

Their menu does not have a lot of choices but the scrumptious ribs more than make up for it. They have a choice of Spicy or Original flavored Pete’s Ribs. And a choice of rice or mashed potatoes as additional side to the corn and carrots.

I also tried tried their Shrimps platter which was not really over the top but tastes good as well.

One of the little things I liked about the place is the strategically placed buckets in their tables where diners can “throw in” finished ribs so they won’t crowd the plate.

With what I experienced at Surfin Ribs, I would definitely come back for more.
