Morganfield's: Home of Sticky Bones

With so many new restaurants and franchises opening in the Metro in the past months, its becoming harder to keep up and try them all. It was my first time to venture in this side of BGC and I was elated that constructions were ongoing left and right, signs of progress and definitely more restaurants to look forward to. One that we were able to try recently is Morganfield's, an old American diner that combines life's greatest passions -- music and food.

CS and I skipped lunch to make it on time for that day's first screening of Deadpool. Good decision that we watched the movie first before stuffing ourselves with ribs with all that carnage! From the cinema, we walked two floors down to the veranda where Morganfield's is located. It was surprisingly packed on a Sunday afternoon that we waited about 20 minutes before getting a table.

What we ordered

Russet Potato Skins - Php195.00

Perfect appetizer to get things going and excite our palate while waiting for the main course. We wanted to order more but it might get us stuffed too much so we settled for 3 pieces each.

Jack Daniel's Iberico Baby Back Ribs - Php950.00

One out of three. 

With the 3 things going on in this plate, it was only Jack Daniel's Iberico Baby Back Ribs that made this feat worth our time and money. It was juicy and tender as no knife is required to separate the meat off the bones, just how the best ribs are supposed to be. On the other hand, the onion rings had a weird and somewhat disgusting taste, probably from the oil that was used to fry it, while the coleslaw was bland and watery. For comparison's sake: KFC's version tastes so much better.

I'd probably think twice before dining again at Morganfield's. Their customer service needs a lot of improvement and with its pricey menu, I can probably get the same amount of rib servings at half the price of what they charge or even less! In fact, I recently discovered an affordable and delicious rib place up North that I will be sharing to you in the coming days. Stay tuned!
