The last week of August was intensely busy for me. So when I received an invite from my blogger friend, I grabbed the opportunity. Let me tell you, that short break I took was worth it. Why, you ask? Well, one I got to enjoy a lovely afternoon with my blogger friends and two I was able to eat at Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse in U.P. Town Center.
This branch opened it’s doors on November last year. Since I don’t live near that area, I haven’t tried eating here yet. But now that I got to, Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse is now part of my go-to places to eat with my family and friends.
The dish that caught my attention was their smoked ribs. They’re so juicy and hard to resist. The reason behind this is Fat Daddy’s utmost importance to time and temperature when cooking their pork spare ribs.
Yes, the ingredients are important, too! But in order for everything to come together, their special dish must be cooked properly. This means that a good rack of pork ribs with the proper thickness is smoked with the right amount of heat for 10 straight hours. This meticulous process ensures that all sides will be cooked on the same level releasing the flavors in each layer.
No wonder you taste perfection in every bite!
Besides their fabulous Smoked Pork Ribs, Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse also offer other great dishes. Let’s begin with their appetizers.
We were able to try Jera’s Ultimate Pulled Pork and Bacon Nachos (Half – Php 330), Buttermilk Fried Livers (Php 210), Bacon Mac & Cheese Poppers (Php 195) and Chef Pat’s Ultimate Bacon & Cheese Dip (Php 250).
My favorite in this batch is Chef Pat’s Ultimate Bacon & Cheese Dip. The dip contains two kinds of mozzarella and two kinds of cheddar cheese so get ready for an ooey, gooey goodness. Second is the Buttermilk Fried Livers. I do not like livers; however, I eat it once in a while specially if it’s in Igado because livers are nutritious. After tasting their Buttermilk Fried Livers, I guess I can enjoy eating liver afterall.
Now let’s move on to the main dishes. The Smoked Pork Ribs may be my absolute favorite but there are two others worth trying like the Chicken Wings!
Whether you love the classic buffalo or something more spicy, you’ll be happy to know that Fat Daddy’s Chicken Wings comes in five different flavors – Honey BBQ, Honey Mustard, Salted Egg, Honey Sriracha, and Classic Buffalo (Php 245).
I personally enjoyed the Honey BBQ and Salted Egg. Though I can’t handle spicy flavors, I did actually love the Honey Sriracha. I just have to prepare my Dr Pepper when I try to eat this next time.
Another dish which you would want to share with your family/ friends is their Smoked Meat Platter (Php 2,400). This huge platter contains all of their signature smoked meats from Beef Brisket to Chicken BBQ, Hot Links, Pork Ribs and Pulled Pork Shoulder. Just what I mentioned earlier with their Pork Ribs, these signature smoked meats are also cooked to perfection.
Ending our lovely meal is a series of sweet dessert and milkshakes. Fat Daddy’s has quite a lot to offer for lovers of sweets. There’s Bacon and S’mores Dip (Php 250), Caramel Drizzled Banana Pudding (Php 170), Pecan Pie (Php 250) and Peach Cobbler (Php 250) as well as Caramel Popcorn Milkshake (Php 195) and Smokey Maple Bacon Milkshake (Php 195).
I found some of them too sweet for my taste but I did enjoy the Bacon and S’mores Dip, Caramel Popcorn Milkshake especially the Caramel Drizzled Banana Pudding! Yes, I love S’mores and I definitely love caramel. 😉
