Meats, tomatoes, cheeses, and bacons...which we find people have common favorites! So what else would we want to do when these are served in front of us? Of course, we would grub it! Yet the most important thing here is we are going to grub this in grüb! that is located inside the ELJ Communications Building (ABSCBN) open from 11 AM to 9 PM.
Before we begin, let us not mistaken it as the Chuck's Grub because they are entirely different, okay? So, what's on their menu?
Of Wings and Things
Fricken Chicken Wings (P169.00)
For freaking barkadas who love finger foods, munch this to had the state of preparedness for the grubs!
Wicked Potato Chips (P29.00)
But if you want something light, have this chips as your appetizer.
In Between Bread
The bread they used here is called New England Style Split Top Buns and in between bread, here are some of the awesome choices we had.
The Pig Candy Melt (P119.00)
I was delighted to find my favorite piece - the bacon and I was really satisfied with what I ate.
Moo Melt (P129.00)
This one is a beef with cheese sauce but I find the cheese overpowering.
The Hot Chicks (P109.00)
I also like the flavor of this one. Those are chicken pops in spicy flavor.
Beef of Burden (P129.00)
For me, this is best as a rice meal.
Rice & Shine
Beef of Burden (P139.00)
And yes, the herbs flavor are much appreciated with rice than with the bun.
The Codfather (P139.00)
For the healthy bod out there, they also offer something fishy. I wished I have tried eating this one to know how the sauce taste like.
#1 Beef Tapa (P179.00)
Of course, the ultimate favorite of Pinoy that grüb! surely would not miss. Their beef as far as I can remember is imported.
Meatballs & Red (P129.00)
A generous serving we had from their pasta and those balls are really big.
Greens & Tuna (P79.00)
I haven't tasted this one but at least we know that they offer greens.
Greens & Shrimp (P89.00)
I had this one for take out because shrimps are my favorite too. As I went home, that is when I realize that I only have to shake it because it is contained in a plastic glass. No need for mix and mix and the dressing is full.
Frozen Fruit Pops (29.00)
Its in avocado flavor!
Upon evaluation, prices are generally lower which is contrary to the aura of the restaurant from the outside. However, when you are already seated and roamed around your eyes to the whole area, the feeling is actually homey... laid-back... comfy! Plus the music comes from different decades so when the guest sang, we already knew how old or how young he/she is. Lol!
What do you think would be the merchandises here? I'm excited for the smiley shirts! I'm sure I'll be one of their buyer if it is already available.
Conversing with the man behind this store is very personal because he really likes meeting new people. I haven't asked him, but I affirm that the inspiration for putting up the business is because of letting the guests have the vibe of relationship - the sense of togetherness. Imagine that they do not operate on Saturdays and Sundays just to give way to their staff to enjoy the family day, he and his wife operates the business together, and the logo itself tells that we should be happy. Am I sending the message that the business is made with passion and love? üüü
With the power of the two as a partner in life and a business partner, it would not be a surprise if we hear an expansion of grüb! Not soon though, as they have started just this July 1, 2013. For the mean time, more power to the happiest restaurant I've dined! I'd prefer to chill here when near the area.
