Backyard Kitchen and Brew may be known more as an after work and weekend hangout place but it’s a great place for lunch with a kid friendly menu. They opened their first branch in UP Town Center and now has expanded to a total of 4 branches in Metro Manila. They recently introduced a number of new dishes to compliment their meat heavy menu.
We started out with Grilled Corn Elote (P220). Grilled sweet corn with ricotta cheese, chives and spices. You can ask the waitstaff to shred the corn so it’s easier to eat and less messy. We love that the grilling added good aroma and release more corn sweetness.
Steak and Bacon Flatbread (P295). Thin and crisp dough slathered with bbq sauce, topped with hanger steak, bacon, mozarella, mushrooms, onions and bell pepper. This has the sweet and tangy flavors that is very appealing to me, add to the that generous bacon and steak pieces. This is by far my favorite flatbread at Backyard.
Caesar Steak Salad (P295). If you must have salad, why not add a little more meat to sweeten the deal. Classic Caesar salad with bacon strips served with a side of hanger steak.
Drunken Mussels (P275). I’m not a big fan of alcoholic beverages but alcohol in food is a big thumbs up for me. Local mussels cooked in beer and lime soda broth, with garlic, onion and cilantro. They’ve thoughtfully provided a couple of slices of bread because I guarantee you will be dipping it in the broth.
Loco Moco Burger Steak (P355). Backyard’s interpretation of the Hawaiian classic. A Backyard burger patty on top of steak fried rice, topped with sunny side egg, cheese, steak sauce, gravy and a side of macaroni salad. The best way to eat this i.m.o. is to mix everything up including the macaroni salad to get comfort food nirvana.
Steak and Eggs (P510). Normally a breakfast or brunch dish, you can have it all day at Backyard. Char grilled hanger steak with 2 sunny side eggs and fresh cut fries.
Eating out with a group means different preferences for everyone. Backyard’s new platters will be the perfect solution to that. The Ribs and Fried Chicken platter (P890) has a half slab of coffee crusted ribs, 2 pcs of their popular waffle breaded fried chicken, fries and slaw. The Surf and Turf Platter (P950) has a 300 gram hanger steak, 250 grams of garlic prawn, and comes with mashed potatoes, french beans and roasted cherry tomatoes.
*Weekday lunches are awesome at Backyard with their Big Lunch promo for P299 that comes with soup/salad, flatbread, ice tea and your choice of main dish*
