Roadster Roasters is a new restaurant specializing in slow cooked meats that will delight carnivores. Located at the Launchpad Building in the new TV-5 complex on Sheridan. It’s a perfect place for after work meals with a beer or two or a quick lunch stop. Parking spaces are available at the basement of the building until the large open parking is completed, street parking is available during weekends and nighttime.
Start off with the Roaster Nachos (P280). Home made nachos that taste like fried quesadillas layered with ground beef, cheese, onions, jalapenos and olives.
Roast Chicken (P345/half with 2 sides). We got this with mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes, both were excellent, creamy and you can detect that they were made in house. The chicken skin has a nice crisp and char but the meat was still very juicy with lots of good flavor and aroma. One of the better roast chickens around and comes with their own gravy made from drippings that has a nostalgic familiar taste.
Barbecue Pork Ribs (P320/180 grams, P580/360 grams, P760/half rack, P1480/full rack). These 4 hour smoked ribs (half rack) are humongous, and smells so good. The meat is very tender but it’s not falling off from boiling like other places do. The barbecue sauce they’ve concocted is very good, more Filipino tasting with sweet and tangy flavors that are very familiar.
Texas Style Slow Roasted Beef Belly (P300/150 grams, P590/ 300 grams, P980/500 grams, P1920/1.5kgs). 12 hours slow roasted with their own blend of spices and aromatics. This was ok but ultimately nothing special with the proliferation of US style smokehouses in the Metro. This was the weakest meat dish we had that day.
The food at Roaster Roasters is uncomplicated, real, and easy to understand, meat and it’s different iterations.
