In December 8, 1998, Bigby’s Cafe Concept was first introduced in the city of Cagayan de Oro by Henryk Kelly Yu, Joanna Cris Yu and Catherine Ganabe. Source click here- Bigby’s

After enjoying their *Passion Fish and **Shrimp Divine during our first visit at their branch at Atrium, Megamall, we were craving for more!

*Passion Fish is a parmesan-breaded fish fillet with a garlic dip and choice of fries or rice.

** Shrimply Divine is a light creamy pasta with pesto and shrimps.

The atmosphere in their dining area is indeed cozy and comfortable. Bigby’s international concept with a wide array of meal choices in the menu presents a great adventure for your palate.

the Tijuana Quesadillas, a taste teaser

The ultimate hot and crisp flour tortilla with garlic and cheese, served with salsa fresca.

The garlic and cheese were well balanced, the salsa well complimented the tortilla. We were worried that it may be too hot and spicy but it was not! (A very good choice!)

the Belly Buster, a food trip platter good for 4-5

The ultimate combo of their famous barbecued babyback ribs, grilled rodeo chops and smoky pork belly, served with garlic rice, buttered vegetables and crispy onion rings. Choice of dip was barbeque and cranberry.

The barbecued baby back ribs was fine, I had to dip it in barbecue sauce to add more flavor. The pork belly and grilled pork chops was tasty and yummy! I was intrigue if the cranberry will compliment the chops (well, it worked).

the Banana Fanna, a dessert

a banana fritter with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce, served with a banana “turrones’ staffed with sweet custard and jackfruit, then coated with choice nuts.

Sweet and satisfying, not bad at all.

The waiting period for this dessert took approximately 15-20 minutes after requesting for it.

Thank you also to Ensogo Philippines for letting me purchase a voucher worth P400 Gift Certificate to dine for food and drinks at Bigby’s for half the price! (P200).

Upon hearing news of Bon Chon’s entry into the Philippines early this year, and with all the good reviews, I was looking forward to stop by at one of their branches.

 Here are some facts about Bon Chon:

(1) Bonchon Chicken is a South Korean-based fried chicken franchise restaurant. (2) Korean fried chicken (or seasoned chicken) is a fried dish prepared by removing fat from the skin, seasoned with spices after being fried. Famous for being called “double fried chicken”. (3) It opened stores first in New York, United States before here in Manila, Philippines. (4) The chicken can be served as hot & spicy or based in soy garlic.

 We had a chance of having dinner earlier at Bon Chon Megamall and ordered the following:

The Caesar salad was fresh, crispy and tasty. The dressing compliments the salad well. However, it should be served in a bowl or plate instead of a plastic container which is ideal for take outs.

The (soy garlic based) 6-pc chicken wings was tasty on the outside. Unfortunately, I couldn’t say the same with the inside. Except for the coating, it was plain and normal and needed. A dip of spicy mayo only made it interesting.

I noticed that the Megamall branch is small. The tables and seats are set-up in a way that they are too close to each other. Instead of enjoying the meal, I was conscious of not making too much movement that may disturb the other customers in another table. I also noticed that customers stop eating abruptly from time to time because the tables easily move with the slightest nudge. I hope that Bon Chon Megamall can expand or gets a bigger space.

2 mineral water (P60.00)

1 Caesar Salad (P125.00)

3 Plain rice (P45.00)

2 Spicy Mayo (P20.00)

6-pc chicken wings – soy garlic (P185.00)

Total (P525.00 for 2 pax)
