I celebrated my 46th Birthday with lunch alone at SM The Block Ground Floor. Gringo Chicken Ribs Friends was at its soft opening that day.
The place is a bit small, but it reminds me of a backyard barbecue but indoors. lol. The staff were attentive, knowledgable and when asked would recommend dishes.
Since I was alone, I decided to try their chicken. I wanted something savory and spicy.
Gringo is the Spanish word for foreigner. If you like watching films, more often than not the connotation for this is pretty negative coming for a pure Mexican. But the food and ambiance is not so at Gringo!
Read my full experience after the cut.
Grilled and smoked to perfection. The Southern Spice Chicken is probably one of the best I have ever had. The fragrant and herbal taste and the charred juicy chicken is so mouth-water good!
I liked that they had a good selection of side dishes and chicken sizes you can choose from. The place is a bit crowded but the smiling servers and fast and attentive service more than makes up for it. I would take my pork meat hungry family to try their ribs next time, since this time around I was alone and it would be unbecoming a lady to polish off a whole rack of ribs by my lonesome.
If you are in the Northern part of Manila stop by Gringo, try their delicious ribs and chicken. It is worth your while/
