Sometimes find food in the unlikeliest of places, Red Baron Ribs and Steak is one of them, it’s located in a car wash in Quezon City. You can have your car made spick and span while you fill up your tummy in air conditioned comfort. I’ve passed by Red Baron many times but always thought it was just the office of the car wash. I was quite surprise at the hidden eatery that’s housed within when they invited a couple of us to try out their food.
We started with a plate of Nachoriffic (P218). A humongous plate filled with nachos, minced beef, cheese sauce and sweet tomato sauce. Red Baron eschews the usual crunchy corn tortilla for a flaky one.
Pitted Pepperoni and Mozzarella Sticks (P169). Minced pepperoni and cheese are encased in a flour wrapper then deep fried. How can you go wrong by improving the staple bar chow, cheese sticks. Served with two sauces, mayo and tomato sauce.
We also tried out a couple of their interesting drinks. KitKat Matcha Frizzy (P138) which uses imported kitkat match pieces blended into the shake. Matcha lovers (which I’m increasingly becoming) will enjoy this if they have a big sweet tooth.
The other curious drink we had was the Ice Scramble (P138). The drink/dessert is Red Baron’s take on something that’s been sold on the streets since I can remember, it also made a mall push a couple of years ago. It was nostalgic and quite enjoyable.
Brunch Monster Burger (P248). A triple decker burger that forgoes the burger bun in favor of slices of whole wheat bread. Inside those slices are an Angus burger patty, cheese, scrambled egg, bacon, more cheese and some veggies to keep it a bit healthy.
The next one, Volcanic Bacon Mushroom Melt (P255) was a curious sight. A burger bun speckled with melted cheese and what appeared to be tentacles (nah, just curly fries) to approximate the volcano look. There’s an Angus beef patty, melted cheese, mushrooms and most important of all, bacon.
We tried one of their signature dishes next, the Red Baron Baby Back Ribs (P275/ Solo with 1 side and 1 rice, P698/Full with 2 rice and 3 sides). Tender and smoky meat thats brushed with a sweet barbecue sauce that suited my taste buds just right. Both sizes also come with a jar of dried peanuts.
Chicken Steak (P199). This was my bang for the buck favorite, grilled smoky chicken fillet served with wild rice and a side plus a jar of dried peanuts. It’s a filling meal in itself for less than P200, you can actually get an extra rice and share it between 2 people.
Lamb Steak (P289). This was a bit thin but flavor made up for it, you can’t complain too much considering the low price.
Surf and Turf (P795). Rib Eye steak plus shrimps cooked in brandy sauce served with 3 sides, a jar of dried peanuts and 1 rice. The price of this was a bit of the high side considering the location and I would advise against ordering this. You are better off ordering the rib eye steak alone for P278.
There are some good deals at Red Baron Ribs and Steak but there are also some that are on the expensive side that should be avoided. You can kill two birds with one stone, have your car washed and get a decent meal to boot.
