The Maginhawa Diaries : Wogo Ribs, Pasta And More

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Food is my comfort zone. Whenever I feel sad or depressed, I cook or eat--or do both! I mean, who doesn't love food? I'm so fortunate to be surrounded by great restaurants, street food and what have you. Maginhawa indeed is a foodie's playground. Can I just say I love living here? My place is strategically near the Supermarket, the laundromat, the terminals and work, most especially. I have to allot around 10-15mins of travel time to get to work, and that's not bad! Considering the horrendous traffic situation Metro Manila has to offer. 

In our pursuit to further discover what Maginhawa has in store for us, the boyfriend and I would usually try out new restaurants/fast foods which proliferate like mushrooms in this strip, I tell ya! One of the new ones that caught our attention was Wogo Ribs, Pasta and More. We tried it one afternoon because we were too lazy to get up and cook--but not too lazy to get up and eat out LOL.

The place is very small. It can probably accommodate around 8-10 people at most. We originally wanted the Rib-eye steak but the cashier (who also happens to be the cook and the waiter) told us that the only thing available is their Baby Back Ribs, not much of a choice, eh? 

We ordered the Baby Back Ribs since it was the only thing available anyway. We also wanted to have desserts but they didn't have any at that time, too. The cashier said it will get delivered at x time, which is none of my fucking concern because I just want to eat dessert. Is that too much to ask? UGH.

Anyhoo, I can definitely say that the ribs won me over! It was so soft and tender, and it felt like it was ready to fall of the bones! Add some hot sauce and it's perfection. I wasn't that amazed with their barbeque sauce, it tasted like the ones you can buy from the supermarket. I was also a bit disappointed with the side veggies, uhm, you call those veggies? They look like garnish, plus they were still a bit cold. I'm thinking the one-man crew didn't thaw these properly.

For a kuripot like me, I'd say their prices are pretty steep. The Baby Back Ribs is priced at P180 per serving plus the service I'll probably give this one a 2.5 out of 5. Would I go back? Yes, but only because I want to try their Rib Eye Steak. If not for that, I don't think I'll be visiting this place anytime soon. 

Oh, before I forget, I've posted the winner of my CBTL planner giveaway! I had a problem picking the winner through Rafflecopter and it was frustrating! I had to do things manually, not that it was difficult, it was just inconvenient. All of those things aside, congratulations to the winner! I'll be contacting you in 24hrs to discuss the details of the giveaway. 

Aaaaaand, it's already Thursday, can you believe it? Give yourself a pat on the back and probably a big-ass chicken from Mini-Stop or Jollibee for making it halfway through the week. Yaaay! Happy thirsty Thursdaaaaay! 

The place is now closed. I passed by the area and it is now a gown rental shop.
