Did you know that Racks opened its doors in 1992? Oh yes! They've been operating for almost two decades now, and they recently debuted a new look when they opened their two new branches located one in north and one in the south.
I was invited to check out their new Timog Avenue branch (their 15th store) and got to feel the cozier, homey, country vibe that Racks is trying to imbibe.
RACKS' new look is inspired by southern country American life. Since RACKS stands for Real American Country Kitchen Style (bet you didn't know that. It was actually my first time to hear that there's an acronym for RACKS, hehe), the new interiors has warm tones accentuated by dark wooden panels. Stone bricks were also used as pillars and covering for the indoor grills to give them a more rustic feel. The classic southern country dishes that they serve they also want it to be reflected in their restaurants.
Their popular onion brick is one of their best-sellers which consists of thinly sliced onion rings, marinated, spiced, lightly breaded then deep fried to a crisp. This is ideal for sharing since its portions are large.
RACKS also serves flame-grilled Angus beef rib eye seasoned with signature steak rubpaired with red wine au jus.
The secret behind this favorite starts with finding the finest baby ribs, butchering and trimming them in-house leaving just the right amount of fat for that special, deep flavour. The baby ribs are then hickory-smoked in a blend of special herbs and spices to achieve a distinct, rich, smoky taste before being fire-grilled and flame-broiled to seal in all the goodness. Slathered with RACKS Original Barbecue Sauce, every serving delivers a dining experience like no other.
RACKS' menu has something for every member of the family. Choices range from pasta dishes, and seafood selections to sald, sandwiches and starters and of course, desserts!
Cheers to good food + good company!! (photo grabbed from ARC Facebook)
