Our family loves grilling -- pork, fish, marshmallows, hotdogs, chicken -- at any chance we're given. I love eating food fresh from the griller, no matter how scorching hot the food is.
I was too happy to be invited to this first and only skewer buffet in Manila, Bar-B-Skew, which opened last October 12, 2013.
As mentioned by the owner, the concept was inspired by skewer restaurants in Australia. He has observed that Filipinos would love this concept too.
I love that the skewers are kept refrigerated and labeled. :)
The friendly staff would prepare the table with hot charcoal. The tabletop grill rotates by itself, so just place your skewers in the grill and wait for it to cook. :)
We had some Filipino street food favorites like Pork BBQ, Hotdogs, Chicken Isaw, and Pork Isaw. We also had Cream Dory, Chicken Liver, Chicken BBQ, and Chicken Gizzard. Skewered veggies are pumpkin, carrot, and cucumber while skewered fruits are pineapple and banana. Of course, there's marshmallow too!
Eating skewers are better with refreshments like soft drinks, iced tea, juices, and local beers.
I really enjoyed the Bar-B-Skew experience that I lost count on how many skewers I was able to finish that evening. As they are currently on soft opening, Bar-B-Skew is still improving the place.
Aside from buffet options, Bar B Skew also has Budget Meals for as low as Php 99 and Skewer Packs for as low as Php 139.

Dinner Buffet (5pm to 12mn) - Php 349 (Mon to Thurs), Php 399 (Fri to Sun)
