Food Trip Saturday: Lyndon’s
It’s been almost a month (or already a month) that I haven’t been posting. Work has been a primary factor in my “failure” to update, and for the most part, just being plain L-A-Z-Y.
Anyway, this one has been long overdue. 4 weeks to be exact. Remember the good news I got? This came along with it. It was last September 3 that our boss treated us (his staff who were still at the office that Saturday) to dinner at Lyndon’s – World’s Worst Ribs and Awful Chicken. We were around 14 pax (I think! I lost count). My group arrived last and food was already ordered for us. I haven’t tried eating there so I was itching to get a taste of their food. I’ve heard a lot of good comments about the place and I was eager to sample their menu.
Our food finally arrived after 10 – 15 minutes of chatting with each other. Each one (even our driver) had a plate of their famous “World’s Worst Ribs” – the 55ogram option, a cup of steamed rice, and corn side dish. A big serving indeed! That wasn’t all. Our boss ordered servings of their baked and sauteed scallops, sinigang, panga (tuna jaw. I forgot it’s English term. sorry…), and I think another soup which I don’t remember since I didn’t get to taste it anymore.
YUM was an understatement! The meat was SO tender that it practically falls off from the ribs. And the taste! Wow! Heavenly! Nothing close to their tagline. You just can’t get over your first bite of it! And it was when I finished my meal that I realized that the knife they gave us was for butter. Not for steak. But it didn’t make eating it any difficult. Like I said, the meat was SO tender!
We got to meet the owner who was very nice. But since I was at the far end of our long table, I ended up just getting a glimpse of him.
Lyndon’s have 2 branches in Davao. One is their first branch located at Roxas St. along Ateneo de Davao University. The 2nd one (closer to where I live, and where we dined) is at Wheels ‘n More Drive along J.P. Laurel Ave.
Ever since then, I’ve been craving for their ribs from time to time. And yes, I give in to my cravings. LOL.
