For meat lovers like myself, you will definitely love Big D’s Smokehouse.
I got to try their best sellers during Comedy Cartel’s Laugh and Stack Leg 15 which happened last Saturday, November 7, 2014.
Big D’s Eastwood branch just opened last August and had been making it big since then. I’ve been hearing a lot about their ribs and was really excited to try it for myself. If you’re on instagram, do search for #ribsthatrock and drool!
One of the owners, Chef Dino welcomed us with their house blended iced tea while we were waiting for our food to be served. I rarely get the chance to meet restaurant owners during reviews/food tasting and I was really grateful that Chef Dino spent some time with us (their staff are not so friendly but could improve in the long run).
Hush Puppies – Php175
Chef Dino said, this recipe is originally from his mom that he had recreated.
I love the combination of cheese and garlic sauce and the roasted pimiento inside just made this appetizer extra special.
Start Up Nachos – Duo Php150, Platter Php250
Big D’s version of the most ordered appetizer is just amazing. I love that they used pulled pork instead of the usual grilled pork or beef. The Taco Shells are super thin too and tastes great.
Baked Chicken – Php230.
Perfectly cooked and perfectly plated dish. This could feed two people because of it’s hefty serving.
Ribs – Solo Php 230, Duo Php 390
One of the best tasting ribs I’ve ever tried. I prefer eating it without the sauce.
Twice Fried Ribs – Half Slab Php380, Full Slab Php495
This one’s not yet on the menu and Chef Dino has yet to decide what to name this dish. We’re so luck to be one of the few people who got to taste this first. It’s really good and the meat was perfectly cooked. If this would be the serving size, then it could feed 2-3 persons.
Big D’s is located at 2/F Citywalk 2 (directly above Starbucks), Eastwood City, Quezon City.
