The Biggest & Juiciest Pork Ribs In Town Is Coming To Uptown

Morganfield’sTM, an American diner offering the biggest & juiciest pork ribs in town is sure to become another foodie destination when it opens in Uptown Place at Fort Bonifacio after making waves in Malaysia, Singapore and China.

Their heavyweight hero, Sticky BonesTM is an authentic prime pork rib slowly baked and smoked for hours in coal and hickory wood, grilled to perfection so that it is off-the-bone juicy, then basted with the sweetness and tanginess of their special homemade BBQ sauce, a unique hickory barbeque sauce that comes with a hint of cider. Priced at only P750 for half slab and P1,395 for full slab, this is definitely good for 3 or more.  Their spare ribs also come in four flavors:  Hickory BBQ, Garlicky BBQ, Smoked Peppercorn and Spicy Asian BBQ catered just for Asian taste buds! 

Ever heard of the saying pigs can’t fly? Not true in this case as another Morganfield’sTM must-try, the premium Iberico Baby Back ribs, are specially flown in from Spain. Being a rare breed of black hog renowned for its remarkably tender texture and one-of-its-kind taste, this national treasure from Spain has the unique ability to store fats in muscle tissues to give one that melt-in-your-mouth texture. Its main diet of acorns also helps generate a high percentage of mono-unsaturated fats in their meat, so much so that Spanish locals call it “olives with legs” - so diners can afford to indulge all they want. 


Their porky menu also offers the homemade Pork Sausage Platter, Bacon Wrapped Meat Balls, Pork Ham Chops, Pork Shoulder Chops, pork burgers and hot dogs, Bacon Wrapped Prawns, plus more than 50 one-of-its-kind dishes ranging from seafood, steaks, burgers and sandwiches, tacos, soups, salads, appetizers and mouth-watering desserts. For those who like to try a bit of this and that, the platters good for 3 - 4 are a great choice. 


Apart from the great food, Morganfield’sTM also offers various types of dining areas, from the breezy al fresco area, the hype full sized bar and the casual long tables and benches perfect for family gatherings.  

Raw, unpolished red bricks give the place a rugged yet authentic industrial barn atmosphere; blended
seamlessly with recycled, aged wood to lend a vintage vibe that is both timeless and inviting.   

To celebrate their opening on Nov. 28, Morganfield’sTM is also offering a free half slab of spare ribs or a bottle of wine to the first 100 customers who will order their sharing platter – a great way to get more of those delicious ribs!    

So head on down to Morganfield’sTM located at the 2nd Floor of Uptown Place in Fort Bonifacio.  For more information, log on to our website www.morganfields.com.ph or our official Facebook account at www.facebook.com/morganfieldsph.

Now You Can Experience The Tapa Festival of GoodAh!!!

I was invited to try the food for a Tapa Festival from one of well-known fast food when it comes to Tapsilog, GoodAh!!! It was known in their Goto Special and Tapsilog during mid-90s. One of my favorite place to dine-in when I was young. My favorites are Goto Special and Cicken Mami way back then. Today, it was one of the favorite Tapsilog places where you can have a variety of choices.

GoodAh!!!, offers the Tapa Festival with three wonderful set of Tapa options such as Original Tapsilog, Tapa Bacon, and Tapa Flakes.


During the event, we have guilt free Chicharon which is so yummy and perfectly pair with their Chili Vinegar (Maanghang na Suka ). I almost forgot that the event was about the Tapa Festival because the Chicharon was really tasty, we even joked to each other that the only missing is rice and it’s like a complete meal.


After a short introduction from the Ms. Tess, we have now a better understanding about the company and the brand of GoodAh!!! Then the parade of Tapa was on its way to our table and the fest was started.  First we have the Tapa Flakes which is shredded beef flanks cook adobo style and dip fry served with garlic fried rice, sunny side up egg and atchara.  I don’t usually eat sunny side up egg, so I requested to them to cook it well done for me. However, the Tapa Flakes is my number one choices even I haven’t try the other two. I love its flaky texture and the crunchy bits of Tapa, although, it looks messy but it was a hit for me.


It was followed by the Original Tapsilog which is 100% marinated beef sirloin served with garlic fried rice, sunny side up egg and atchara. It was their signature Tapa, I actually tried it before in their other branch. Their Tapsilog is kind of sweet and it’s one of the favorites in all branches of GoodAh!!! I like it but not as much as I like the Tapa Flakes.


Lastly, we have the Tapa Bacon which is the strips of pork belly marinated with powdered smoked flavor and spices served with garlic fried rice, sunny side up egg and atchara. I don’t personally like it, the bacon was kind of elastic and I can’t figure out its taste maybe because of the oil coming from bacon. However, it’s something new to me which makes me interested to try when I first saw the fact sheets of Tapa Festival.


I suggest that the Tapa Flakes should be included in their original menu as a regular menu because it’s something new to add on their list and people will love it.  For the Original Tapa, what can I say its classic and the taste is really the same and consistent. For the Tapa Bacon, I did not like it much. It should be better if the bacon was crunchy and a little salty and sweet.  I think the sunny side up egg and atchara can be replacing with salted egg and tomatoes.

Over-all the Tapa Festival menu was great, perhaps my opinion when it comes to food is different from others and what I said here is my own option that based on my palates.
