Ribs and Chops @ Cagayan , Centerpoint BU

After you have tried those pork ribs made by Tony Roma's restaurant, you feel like you have just been initiated into the world of Ribs. I can now join in a rib conversation and say, "yeah, those ribs are just about as good as Tony Roma's.... " or otherwise.

I remember some time back we were standing outside Cagayan's and looking through their menu outside their main entrance. We then told ourselves, okay we gonna come back and try their ribs some day. At that time we just ate at Checkers.
The ribs in Cagayan come in three different sauces, and in three different sizes. It comes in , Spicy, Oriental and Classic sauces. According to him the Classic Sauce was the most popular ( I really thought he made it up). The sizes comes in 4 ribs, 6 ribs, and 8 ribs. Would have gone for 8 , but to be safe we ordered 6 , just in case not nice ma...

The ribs took a little while to come, but we were okay with it. When it arrived, we noticed the ribs being accompanied by a scoop of mash potatos ( like KFC ), a scoop of wetter than usual coleslaw (like KFC again) , one leaf of lettuce.

I definitely expected the ribs to taste a little better, but we finished it up nevertheless. Although we were not quite impressed with what came on our table, we will definitely return to check out their Spicy ribs.


We also ordered Pork Chop. When it arrived we found that they came with French Fries (like KFC) and Coleslaw (also like KFC). The mushroom/pork chop sauce they served tasted like normal sauces you find at MArket Western Food stall type pork chop.

Serving size however slightly bigger than those market stalls.


Totally not impressed by this restaurant. Yes , they serve pork, pork chop, etc but it really does remind me of the Yulek Western Stall I used to eat on Sunday mornings. Philipines food... my first really... I read the reviews by EFTL, he thinks its a great place to be, and saw that he ordered quite a number of other dishes. Will find time to go back and try those stuff....

At the end of the day, the bill came out to be quite reasonable too. So no problems going to back to try their other stuff...

Now u've got me really curious about the food there. Maybe I'll bring along a couple of Filipino friends to confirm the authenticity of the food! hehe.

Ooo... Good to know this though you said it's not 100% impressive. Have not really been surveying non-halal restaurants and have not had ribs since came back to M'sia 'cus most are beef ribs.

Lemongrass - yes please bring some. I see mostly locals patronizing this place. I just had a talk with my well travelled American friend who lived in the Philipines for a few years, and we rates authentic Phiipines food to be the least delicious comparing them with food found in their Asean neighbours. His favorite food being indian and anything to do with durians..

Bel - ya lo really not very impressive. I rate this restaurant's popularity is because of them serving reasonable priced food more than the food being delicious...

Sayang - ;) when we doing those ribs , hhehehe , "much talked about ones.."
