We all want to relax and enjoy good food at the end of a very busy day, don’t we? If you happen to be looking for a new place in the heart of the city, add Wheels Bar and Grill to your bucket list. Aside from their cool and spacious restaurant, their dishes can satisfy both people with discriminating taste or those who just want something to fill their bellies.
If you need proof, take a look at the photos I took when I dined there. Yes, they all look delicious but mind you, they all taste delicious too! Don’t take my word for it. You should try these yourself!
Must-Try Dishes at Wheels Bar and Grill
I’m a fan of tacos but this was certainly the first time I tried kinilaw served in tacos. The overall taste is very interesting. You’ve got the crunchy taco and sweet fish meat in every bite. Once it is served, better eat it immediately or else the tacos will get soggy. (Php 140)
This dish reminds me of fun times with friends over a few (or many hahaha) bottles of beer or any liquor. Personally, I like my sisig as meaty and flavorful as possible. Wheels Bar and Grill has definitely hit the spot! (Php 159)
I first encountered this dish when I was still working as a nurse in Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center. My friends would go gaga over this dish. They frequently visit the pungko-pungko stall just outside the hospital fence (near the entrance road to the Psychiatric Ward) after our shift.
I didn’t like the first time I tried ginabot. It was very oily and I did not like the taste. Thankfully, this one has the right crunchiness and light taste to it. Don’t forget to dunk it in vinegar too! (Php 90)
I don’t about you but it seems to me that grilled pork belly is a Cebuano comfort food. Just look at that and dare to tell me if you are not excited to eat that with a lot of rice on the plate! (Php 175)
I love chicken barbecue and I want it tender and juicy. I may even throw in a second cup of rice with these 4 sticks! (Php 35 or Php 80)
I used to hear the word larang mentioned by jeepney and taxi drivers. Then I started hearing it from my friends and wondered what’s with it. When I finally tasted larang for the first time, I couldn’t get enough of its sour but flavorful soup.
Wheels Bar and Grill has put it in a higher level though. More seafood and added creamy goodness from coconut milk is a sure-fire way to delight any larang fan like me! (Php 190)
Just like the grilled pork belly, I consider this as a comfort food. Every time I can smell this in a carenderia, my pouth couldn’t help it but begin to water. I like the fact that Wheels Bar and Grill serves it with a lot of meat and a bit of fat. Just look at that! (Php 120)
Chicken N’ Gravy
We all want crispy fried chicken dipped in a thick gravy, don’t we? Their version is definitely bigger than the usual servings we see in restaurants but they did not compromise the taste. As I mentioned earlier, you have to try this yourself and understand what I meant. (Php 180)
It’s a bit sweet and creamy. Definitely yummy! (Php 120)
I love the way they prepared it. It has a bit of sauce which I can put on my rice. This is one of my favorites on their menu by the way. (Php 115)
This is perfect because it’s plain taste compliments the flavors of the dishes. (Barkada: Php 40, Cup: Php 15)
If you’re craving for something more flavorful than regular rice, this is one of the options you can choose. You can also go for humba or chorizo rice which is also equally as good as this. (Php 90)
