We dropped by Gringo Chicken and Ribs at SM The Block to see what the buzz about it is all about. I’ve seen a lot of posts on Facebook and Instagram and the ribs had my mouth watering with every single post. The restaurant was still on a soft opening that day and we were hungry.
Friendly staff greeted us and seated us as soon as they saw us. They provided a high chair for Twinkle and got our orders. Just in time as our tummies were grumbling, the orders arrived. Half a rack of ribs + 2 sides (₱365). Gringo’s BBQ Ribs did not disappoint and I’d say that Pablo’s signature marinade shines through. The meat was fall-off-the-bone tender yet not dry. It gives that smoky flavor which everybody liked.
Half of Gringo’s Original Chicken +2 sides (₱365) what I love about it is that it was baked and it gives off that lemony herby flavor. Just like the ribs, it was served with a little bit of nacho chips on the side.
There were two kinds of sauces served at Gringo, one is a lemon herb sauce and one is hot sauce. Both sauces tastes like southern sauces! I love that you can have as much sauce as you want for your chicken and ribs….
What we ordered as sides: Mexican Rice, Smokey Beans, Fried Saba, Potato Salad, and Mashed Potato.
Drinks were water and this beautiful Calamansi Cooler (₱155)!
Judging by the smile on Twinkle’s face, I think she enjoyed the food at Gringo….
Dessert followed at Baskin and Robbins after….
Such a happy and sweet family!! The food in Gringo looks quite tasty!
Thanks Angie. It is quite tasty!

last week was my first time to try Gringo. We ordered their chicken too and ribs, at sobrang satisfied ako kasi ang sarap! walang hindi masarap sa menu, pati yung lemon juice panalo.
BTW mare malaki ka pa dito, now sexy na.

Glad to hear that Twinkle enjoyed the food at Gringo. We’ll try their SM Megamall branch soon. Thanks for the heads-up!
I love ribs! It has been a while since I last had some. Wish Gringo had a branch near us so that we can try their food too.
I’d like to try the chicken. I’m not a big fan of ribs but chicken, very much! 🙂
