The Ultimate Angus Beef Belly at Bar-B-King

I am not really fond of  barbeques, though my husband grew up and finished college with his family  earning income from it.   I  dreaded the thought of burnt pork fats, charred meat and yellow food coloring.   I never in my entire life, smoked myself out on a grill with chicken or any meat.   I prepared what's to be grilled and partake on them, but I would never and could not dare, grill.  To top it of I am not a big fan of grilled meats, but I don't deny eating them.
Then came Bar-B-King in Megamall.   It's a Fast food Barbeque House with a  different take on popular Filipino food fare .   Real barbeque as  good as it gets, should I say.   Every cut of Bar-B-King’s seasoned meat plus a taste of grilled sea foods and veggies infuse a range of amazing flavors.  Juicy, tender and smoky!
Bar-B-King Charcoal-Grilled Barbecues is a Quick Service Restaurant concept focusing on charcoal-grilled barbecues like pork, liempo, beef, steaks, pork chops, sea foods, veggies and more. The outdoor grilling or ihaw-ihaw ambiance makes a perfect balance to the cozy, cool and restaurant ambiance that drives more customers to enjoy the Bar-B-King experience.
Bar-B-King is 100% wholly owned and operated by FoodAsia Corp., the company behind the success of today’s known brands such as Bibingkinitan, The Bibingka Café, Tea Square and Fresh Foods. Established in 2010, it has now five (5) branches: SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM Rosario, SM Dasmariñas and SM Olongapo. Now, Bar-B-King is venturing itself to franchising.

All-Filipino taste in an affordable meal.   Conventional?   Wait till you read  this.   Bar-B-King now has something  new to offer, the  Ultimate  Grilled Angus Beef Belly.    But still have that affordability flare of  Filipino cuisine.    Could you imagine a USDA certified Angus Beef belly for  only P 150, oh wait there's more to it.  P 150 gets you a hefty platter with a thick cut of the beef belly, stir fried corn and carrots, special Bar-B-King recipe of gravy and the original Bar-B-rice.   Let me give you more points to this sinful platter.   Not only is the Angus beef USDA certified, it is marinated Filipino-style, simple without any overpowering sauces or marinade that ruin a good quality taste of an Angus meat.   Also,  according to their chef, it is baked first to get that juicy and tenderness to the meat, than grilled.   Next,  I love their rice, it's something like a java rice except it is not oily and salty.   Also, the gravy is something we could get indulge with not floury and salty, just enough to add  succulence to  the already juicy beef.
Here is what you can see inside the restaurant,  once you enter, an open grille,  which shows-off how every barbecues or grilled stuff on the menu.

Did I mention, you also get a chicken soup stock and rice unlimited!  See!  How can any one go wrong with a meal like that.

If you're still uncontented, maybe a dessert that well suits the complete meal will do. 
Here is very recommendable treat, so up for the summer wave -
The Iced Barako.   A milky concoction of our very own Philippine strong coffee (Liberica) which is blended and iced to perfection.

You can also get a doze of these at any Bibingkinitan Cafe's or stations.   The bibingka and barako coffee duo is still available for P39.  But If you want a cool alternative, you can opt to have Iced Barako instead for only P45.
 Here is a singlet serving of their well-loved bibingka (moist rice cake) from Bibingkinitan.  If you are still wary about the company, here  are some  information proving their qualities in the  panoptic variety  of our food market.

Established in 2006, Bibingkinitan had evolved from a brand-new player in this category into the market leader within five (5) years, in terms of revenues, market share, and market presence with a store network of over 200 in key cities and towns nationwide.

In a time of popular burgers joints and doughnuts chains, Bibingkinitan has initiated renewed interest over Filipino delicacies thru an aggressive expansion program, as seen thru the very warm reception of its products whether in highly urbanized cities, or in rural areas.
