The Invasion of Kapitolyo – Rub Ribs & BBQ UP Town Center
Another restaurant from Kapitolyo, Pasig, RUB Ribs & BBQ is now on UP Town Center right beside Silantro (from Kapitolyo, Pasig as well). Rub Ribs & BBQ is a no frills American grub which offers ribs, wings and rings.
We came around 8pm and the place was full but not as full when Silantro was in soft opening. We were seated outside, across the department store entrance.
- Singles (Ribs + 1 side + plain rice) – P220
- Buffalo Chicken Wings – P260
The orders were limited since I wanted to try Wingman after Rub Ribs but to preempt, the wings were good enough to satisfy my cravings for that night.
The orders came quick despite the number of people inside.
Our Singles order came with a choice of a side dish and rice. We got Garlic Spinach and Mushroom as we were avoiding carbs that time. The sides were decent, not to dry, not to wet. There were also sizeable mushroom bits. Now onto the main part, the ribs. They were tender, soft and literally falling of the bone. The sauce was the traditional barbecue, quite sweet with a smoky feel. For P220, would recommend this dish to anyone. Sulit. 🙂
Now on to the Buffalo Chicken Wings, I have a particular love for Frankie’s as I really think they are the most bang for the buck wings place out there. And to be honest, Rubs’ chicken wings will be my 2nd choice in terms of “sulit” factor. For P260, you get I think 8 pcs of wings drenched in tangy sauce. The breading is seasoned with salt and combined with the tang, this is good already. But as a kicker the wings come with blue cheese dip that is not “tinipid”. I didn’t have to portion the dip on my every bite. Even up to the last piece of wing there was still blue cheese dip left! Two thumbs up for this wings dish as a whole.
Despite ordering only 2 dishes, I was impressed by the quick service, the serving and the taste. I will definitely comeback to Rub Ribs & BBQ in UP Town Center for some drinks with friends or a quick meal with the GF. Highly recommended!
