Given the long history of Filipinos with American Colonialists, it's no surprise that most locals have developed a taste for western food. COOKOUT is one such type of restaurant that embodies this–embracing the salt, grease, and fat of American comfort food that we’ve all, somehow, been programmed to enjoy.
Cookout started as a standalone grilling station along Baguio's Session Road among 3 friends–Russell Go, Melvin Perez, and JR de la Paz of Size Matters, another American comfort food joint in Pasig. The more their homemade sausages and burgers made stomachs happy, the more customers urged them to open a restaurant. Thus, Cookout by Size Matters was born as a collaboration between the 3 gentlemen. They essentially serve the very same sausages and patties as Size Matters, but with a menu unique only to Baguio.
Standing strong for about a year now, Team OAP went for a visit to see what they had to offer…
