You’ve been waiting the ENTIRE year for it and now that it’s finally in your bank account, you’re not sure what to do. Yes, we’re talking about the greatest gift ever to all employees…the 13th month pay!
If you and your friends still don’t know where you’re going to celebrate, how about trying out a place that’s a first of its kind in the metro.
A new restaurant in Bonifacio Global City that can be described in two words…
This place serves up possibly the biggest ribs you’ll ever lay your eyes on and they’re the perfect way to indulge this payday season!
There are new pork ribs in town that will make you squeal!
Dr. Jeffrey Go is a dentist by profession with a talent for entrepreneurship and a great love for music and pork ribs. Combining his passions into one venture, he created Morganfield’s, named after Larry “Mud” Morganfield, an American blues singer.
The first branch ever was in Kuala Lumpur, which was then followed by seven more branches around Malaysia. Morganfield’s then opened branches in Shanghai and Singapore.
Continued expansion has now brought them to the Philippines. Morganfield’s just recently opened their first branch in the country in Uptown Place Mall in BGC.
Pigs can definitely fly at Morganfield’s
When you’re about to bite into Morganfield’s tender ribs, know that you’re very special because their pork is flown in all the way from Spain! Their baby back ribs and spare ribs are cut from Iberian pigs, a rare breed of pigs that can only be found in Spain that are fed on a strict diet – acorns only.
What makes Iberian pigs special is their genetic ability to store fat in their muscle tissue, making them melt-in-your-mouth soft and irresistible. Aside from the tenderness, their acorn diet provides a rich and nutty flavor. But the best part is (listen up all you health nuts), they generate a high percentage of monounsaturated fat in their meat which is actually good for us!
Big and juicy ribs that are bang for the buck
Big doesn’t even begin to describe the monstrosity of Morganfield’s ribs. More fitting adjectives for them would be colossal, jaw-dropping, and slightly intimidating! They are, after all, prepared in portions that are meant to cater to American appetites. This is one place that you don’t want to dine alone.
We took a measuring tape to see exactly how long their signature full slab spare ribs are and they’re a whopping thirteen inches long and almost eight inches wide. That’s about the size of a MacBook! Not to mention every order weighs in at around 1 to 1.2 kilograms (2.2 – 2.6lbs). You’re gonna need every inch of your belly space to fit it all in!
If you’re feeling extra confident about your eating skills, order up a sharing platter! Their Ribs Sampl3r gives you three half slabs of spare ribs in flavors of your choice plus a Footlong Farmer’s Bratwurst sausage, a Spicy Devil sausage, a Herby Hog sausage, a side of garden salad, corn on the cob, cornbread, and crispy french fries! They also have The Carnivore Platter and The Ocean Madness Platter.
But what good are enormous ribs if they’re not tender and flavorful? Not to worry, you’re not going to be chewing on rubbery, bland pork here. Their ribs are marinated overnight with a secret dry rub that seeps into the meat to give it an exciting pop of flavor. They are then slow-cooked and smoked in coal and hickory wood for three to four hours, which allows us to effortlessly sink our incisors into them. To finish them off, they’re basted with a thick and gooey sweet and sour mopping sauce, hence the name Sticky Bones!
You get to choose from four variants of Sticky Bones Spare Ribs, namely the Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs (₱1,395), the Garlicky BBQ Spare Ribs (₱1,395), the Spicy Asian BBQ Spare Ribs (₱1,395), and the Smoked Peppercorn Spare Ribs (₱1,595). So far, it’s the spicy Smoked Peppercorn that’s winning over the taste buds of their Filipino customers!
For a little bit more zing, try out their alcohol-infused Baby Back Ribs. Choose between the Jack Daniels Glazed Iberico Baby Back (₱950) and the Jim Beam BBQ Iberico Baby Back (₱950).
The more the merrier at Morganfield’s
Their huge slabs of meat aren’t the only reason you should bring your officemates or barkada to Morganfield’s though.
With their Awesome Threesome Promo, you get to chug on three pints of beer for way cheap! It’s ₱265 for three pints of San Miguel Pale Pilsen, ₱590 for Beck’s, ₱590 for Stella Artois, ₱590 for Paulaner, and ₱790 for Hoegaarden. Bottoms up, everyone!
And if you still don’t think the promo is awesome enough, you also get free chili cheese fries!
You can just picture it now: It’s payday. You’ve got plates of the biggest ribs in town scattered all over the table. You’ve got a huge mug of cold beer in hand. And you’re hanging out with a bunch of your friends. It’s a good life.
Morganfield’s is located on the 2/F in Uptown Place Mall, 36th St. cor. 9th Ave., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila. Paid parking is available in the basement.
