I’m surprised why Gasthof is not taking off well in Avenue in Makati. With a heritage of serving good baby back ribs in Boracay and a branch in Legaspi City, I would have thought Manila would welcome it with open arms. Gasthof is owned by a German with a Bicolana wife so expect a Filipino-German mix in the cuisine. I’ve been going back to Avenue for some time now to complete my AVenue series and Gasthof is nearly empty during Lunch time. Maybe because they are still constructing it, most people think it is close or the prices are too expensive. (What do you think? )

Baby Back Ribs Half Order (P450). The dish that started it all and became the all-time favorite of Boracay’s for local guests and tourists. Succulent pork back ribs marinated in our special Gasthof sauce.

The only reason I included Gasthof is that there are a lot of people of who love Gasthof ribs. You don’t have to go to Boracay to satisfy your craving. Although I heard lately that the Boracay branch is declining in popularity (not sure also what is the reason? any comment?).

Caesar’s Salad (P180). Crunchy Fresh Lettuce with grated Parmesan cheese, bacon bits, and croutons in Caesar’s dressing.
The salad serving is huge and can easily serve 3-4 people. Our salad was fresh and no complains about it.

Laing Pinangat (P120). I’ve been to Bicol and tasted really good pinangat. But this one failed my expectation because I’m looking for a more tastier and hotter version.

Like in any German restaurant, expect a deli where you can buy sausages and cheese!
