Ribpublic Diner - Roa St.
The buzzing sound of my mobile phone cut through my thoughts as I tapped my fingers lifelessly on my table. It was a text coming from Isaac, my blog partner confirming that he is going to meet me later after I do my own share in the office work in the Local Government Unit of the City of Talisay.
Right after the flag lowering ceremony, I fled out of the City Hall and rode a taxi cab on my way to Cebu Normal University to fetch another friend who I wanna hang out with. While I was on my way, I told Ice that I would like to eat at Ribpublic Diner. I wasn’t quite sure where this diner was located since I haven’t been there and I only heard of them through the internet. I asked him to find the exact location of the diner and yay! He found it. >:D You guys know what this mean guys right? IT MEANS FOOD TRIP TIME!!! (Yes, I intend not to think about the blogging part though. Hehe, sorry appa~)
We waited like around three hours before we decided to get to Ribpublic Diner and get a decent meal. I was heck hungry from thinking about so many things and all I wanted to do was eat. I even told Ice that if he doesn’t get me something to eat like pronto, I WILL FLIP TABLES! GAAAAHHH! FOOD JUSEYOOONG~
We sat there, feeling excited about the meals we ordered. We decided not to order the same dishes so we can share the food among the people on the table. We sound so many, right? Alreen and I qualify for 2 persons each by the way. And Isaac claims he qualifies for a basketball team. Hehehe. We ordered Space Shrimps, Chicken Buffalo Wings and their Ribpublic Meal. We paired the awesome dishes with the almighty Thirst Buster.
I was typing this whole review thing feeling giddy about the food. The Space Shrimps were very good! Ang sarap nga daw ng hipon, sabi ni Ice. Pun intended. Kidding aside, the sweet and spicy taste was balanced enough for those who are not into spicy dishes. It goes perfectly with the Chicken Buffalo Wings by the way. And the ribs? Certainly the best! It’s sweet barbecue flavour is very rich, it complements the spicy dishes we ordered. Not to mention, they have the best barbecue sauce eveeeeer! I’m not a fan of barbecues btw. :D So take it from me.
Going to the price, the price was worth it. It’s relatively cheaper compared to other restaurants or diners offering the same dish. As the saying goes, what you see is what you get. It’s definitely budget friendly.
The diner played party music during our stay. The ambiance was just okay although I personally think the diner is misplaced in terms of its geographical location, environment and accessibility. The place itself is kinda crowded and its quite dark outside (or is it just my astigmatic eyes? O.o). We personally loved the quotes and the drawings on the wall.
Overall, I still recommend you visit the Ribpublic Diner. They offer the best food for the best price! Trust me. After all, there is no greater love than the love for food.
