Breakfast at Racks

It's been a while since I last visited Racks, and I remember the good old days when I used to frequent Racks for a slab of ribs and their awesome barbecue sauce, the extra hot sauce. I've always enjoyed the dry rub style of ribs at Racks, the way a proper slab of ribs should be. But over time, Racks seemed to have slowed down in an increasingly competitive market. But Racks is back, and under its new management, poised to reclaim its former market position.  

Maintaining its core of premium "flame grilled, falls off the bone" ribs Racks has always been known for, it recently expanded its offerings to include a new line of Breakfast Meals, which includes their trademark meat products. And having ribs for breakfast is definitely all the motivation I need to check out the new Breakfast meals.

The new look of Racks retains the casual feel and vibe, but with warmer, more muted colors. Gone are the pale white walls of the old Racks. And I'm really digging the new look, very cool.

The use of wood and earthy tones makes one feel at home, and the friendly and efficient service reinforces the overall cool vibe of the place. And this early, the kitchen at Racks is all fired up.

Racks' new Breakfast Sampler (P 320), with its signature rib flakes, perfectly seasoned sausages and  their very own crispy thick-cut bacon, with corn bread and two eggs (served sunny side up or scrambled). The platter is loaded, a seriously good breakfast. Rib flakes, bacon and sausages, the perfect trifecta, all in one platter.

You get Racks's signature ribs, in the form of flakes, almost similar to pulled pork. The familiar smoky flavor is comforting, even better with a generous helping of Racks' famous Extra Hot Sauce. The sweet spiciness of the sauce, the smoky and flavorful rib flakes reminds me that I've been away from Racks for too long. Much too long. Racks also takes pride in its very own bacon, which they cure and smoke, and one bite tells you this is real bacon. The sausages balances the flavors in this breakfast platter, with its spiced yet subtle flavor. The scrambled eggs are soft and moist, exactly the way I like it. The sweet corn bread rounds of this awesome breakfast.

Racks also offers Steak 'N Eggs (P 290), another great breakfast meal, with pan-fried, natural cut Angus Beef served with two eggs and garlic rice.

The pan-fried premium beef is flavorful, and great with the rice and eggs. Firm, like beef tapa in texture, with just enough fat for added flavor. Familiar flavors can be so comforting, and just perfect to start one's day. It would be pretty tough to choose between the two breakfast meals, as I enjoyed both. I suggest you bring a friend so you can share and enjoy both meals. Seriously.

And nothing like Illy brewed coffee to go with breakfast. Perfect. The Breakfast Meals are currently available at The Fort Strip and El Pueblo branches of Racks, definitely worth waking up a little early for a cool breakfast.

Racks is definitely back. And breakfast at Racks sounds like a cool idea to start your day. Great to be back at Racks...special thanks to Lorenzo "Chukri" Prieto III, Managing Director, and Joy S. de Villa, Marketing and Business Development Manage of Racks, for an awesome breakfast.

Racks is located at the Ground Floor, The Fort Strip, Katipunan Circle, 7th Avenue corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City or call 519-6751.
