I remember when I first tried Ben’s Barbecue House (then known as Sinsay House of Grill and BBQ) last year. It was one of those this-restaurant-is-going-to-be-so-popular-soon realizations because they were able to perfect the art of serving simple but good food at affordable prices. I mean, it’s isaw along with some common grilled fares that you often enjoy at your street corner. Their offerings are as simple as it gets. But there’s something about Ben’s Barbecue House – something different.
Is it because theirs taste better?
Is it because theirs are served in a cleaner and more organized environment?
Is it because you can enjoy these grilled fares in sit-down setting…with rice?
Let’s find out.
About Ben’s Barbecue House
We posted what we ate at our Hello Lipa fan page when we first tried it and it exploded. It had close to 2,000 likes and over 2,200 comments of people tagging their friends to join them in trying it. This was the picture we posted.
NOTE: Not sure why the numbers are lower but you can click on the image above to be directed to the original post to see the updated numbers.
We can end the write-up right here. That picture alone should convince you to go try it out. But I feel that I’ll be doing you a great disservice if I don’t talk more about Ben’s Barbecue House.
It’s basically a barbecue house set up in front of the owner’s house. She converted their garage by adding the grill station, a few tables, and some nice decors for an isaw-eating experience unlike any other.
The Food of Ben’s Barbecue House
Let me start by showing you my favorite – the Inihaw na Bulaklak (PHP 15).
I love Chicharong Bulaklak and it was my first time to try inihaw na bulaklak. It was love at first bite, although I ordered a few more sticks to make sure that it was indeed love that I was feeling. Yes, it was.
Of course, they also have Isaw (PHP 15).
It tasted clean which is the least you could hope for. It’s just a bonus that Ben’s isaw tastes great!
Try the Barbecue (PHP 20).
It’s tender, meaty and that glaze tastes amazing.
Speaking of the glaze, it worked really well for the Hotdog (PHP 20) as well.
Look at how perfectly cooked it is!
They also have Bangus (PHP 120).
It’s good for sharing. Take one home for the family!
We also tried the Liempo (PHP 40).
It’s perfectly-seasoned. Dip it in their homemade vinegar and you’d be ordering another slice.
Speaking of the vinegar, I mistook it for chicken oil and drizzled it all over my rice. Well, it worked! It really whetted my appetite even more.
Order the Tortang Talong (PHP 35) to complement the grilled dishes.
It’s so good that I took a couple home for the following day’s meal.
