By the group who brought us Yabu: The House of Katsu and Ippudo Philippines, Standard Group is now bringing us an authentic American Barbeque experience with Mighty Quinn's.
Started in East Village in Manhattan in December 2012 by Hugh Mangum, the "Barbeque King of New York", Mighty Quinn's offers slow-smoked barbeques from techniques with his roots, Texas and North Carolina, giving a unique 'New York-style' barbeque.
The bestseller, the Beef Brisket, takes around 18 to 22 hours of smoking. Hugh Mangum believes that it's all about sourcing the best quality ingredients and cooking it slowly and adding just the right amount of salt and spice makes a really good barbeque.
Mighty Quinn's is self-service, where your barbeque of choice is cut right in front of you.
I tried the Brisket (Php 495 for a single serving, Php 1295 by the pound) along with Dirty Rice (Php 89 for small, Php 175 for medium, Php 375 for large), and sides of Slaw and Buttermilk Broccoli Salad. The sides also come in three sizes: small (Php 165), medium (Php 325), and large (Php 645). You can also have the pickled add-ons for free. Choices are cucumber, red onion, chiles, and celery.
The single serving of Brisket is huge enough to be shared by two. I have tried it with the barbeque sauce, but I think the barbeque is already flavorful by itself.
I liked the Buttermilk Broccoli Salad, Slaw, and the Corn Fritters. I'll skip the Dirty Rice on my next visit.
I am really impressed with Mighty Quinn's Brisket that I want to try the Spare Ribs, Brontosaurus Rib, and the Apple Pudding.
For an American slow-smoked barbeque experience, I highly suggest that you try Mighty Quinn's. I can't wait to return soon. :)
Thanks to Mighty Quinn's PH for having us.
