'CUE, Modern Barbecue Experience...

Cue' Modern Barbecue-22.jpg

The concept of a modern barbecue house created by first-time restaurateurs intrigued me. I initially thought it was a churrascaria, but it was more of a customizable barbecue experience.

At 'Cue, you can choose your own meat and specify how you want it: wet or dry rubbed, slow-baked or dark ale-braised. Then, you can choose from the different house-made sauces, sides, and toppings.

This is a unique addition to the culinary hub of Bonifacio High Street Central restos...

'Cue's ambiance is simple with the bar and kitchen on the left side, and an educational display of the different cuts of meat on the right.

The best seats are at the farthermost tables or the circular tables near the window.

★ Bone Marrow and Steak Tacos (P485 +10% service charge). Roasted corn salsa, flour tortillas, sweet n' spicy salsa verde.

We started with the popular appetizer of beef slices with bone marrow. It is best to eat the bone marrow while it's hot. Although the tortillas were a bit tough, this would still make a good starter for meat lovers out there. :)

BBQ'D Brisket Ragu (P335 +10% service charge). Pulled beef, pork, tomato and a bit of cream. 

We tried the pasta with pulled beef and pork, and it was nothing special. It's just like spaghetti with soft strands of meat in thick tomato sauce.

The highlight of our meal was the Chopping Board Menu. If you order this, you can choose from Baby Back or Lamb Ribs, Bacon Slabs or Pork Chop, Angus Rib Eye or Beef Belly, or a simple Roasted Chicken.

If you can't decide, you can order a Li'l Feast Sampler (P1,785) of four different kinds of meat.

★ The Baby Back Ribs (Half Slab - P645 +10% service charge). Slow-baked then BBQ'D. Wet with house-made BBQ Glaze. Each order is served with house-made sides and sauce.

We ordered the Baby Back Ribs, and we were delighted with the very soft meat slathered in BBQ glaze instead of the dry rub. It was not as sweet as Tony Roma's but it had a more balanced BBQ taste.

★ Cue's Chili Monggo (P125). A popular and unique house-made side dish for the meat.

Basically a bowl of Chili with the usual red beans -- but this time, with the addition of monggo. We found it on the heavy side but good on its own.

Cue' Modern Barbecue-25.jpgWe loved pairing the meat with Chimichurri and 'Cue's signature sweet Red Wine BBQ Sauce.

Next time, we will add some toppings like the caramelized onions or roasted garlic cloves.

Caramel Pecan Cheesecake (P235 +10% service charge).

For some reason, we did not like the cheesecake we ordered. :(

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (P195 +10% service charge). With vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and hot fudge.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake was the better option in the dessert menu.

(Tip: I would suggest hopping over to the next-door resto and ordering Stella's Wood Fired Chocolate Almond Cookie Dough - a better executed and yummier version!)

'Cue is certainly a Barbecue Haven for hardcore-carnivore foodies. :) To maximize the experience, you can play around with the different sides, sauces, and toppings.

(I heard some foodies raving about the Burger, but I haven't tasted it yet. Let me know if you have tried it or if you have any other recommendations.)

P.S. One thing though, I just felt nakakasuya yung all-meat menu at some point.
