Second Bite: Morganfield's Home of Sticky Bones

Birthday is meant to be the perfect reason to pig out and I decided to pig out in Morganfield’s to celebrate my special day.

Hello again, Morganfield’s.
I was lucky to win Morganfield’s sticky money from a looloo contest and I figured that I could use it to treat my family and R to this place on my birthday.

I heard that Morganfield’s sausages are superb so we got the Pork Sausage Platter (PHP465). We also ordered Chili Cheese Fries (PHP195), Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs (PHP750, half slab | PHP1,395, full slab), Chicken Roulade (PHP595) and Loaded Baked Potato (PHP125). For drinks, we got Begonia (PHP175) and Berry Easy (PHP195). 

First served were our drinks Begonia and Berry Easy.

Berry Easy (made with black grapes, blackberries, strawberries and pureed berries) was too sweet for my liking but my mom loved it. I prefer Bregonia which had chunks of kiwi, strawberries and lime in lemon lime soda with passion fruit syrup. It had a nice bubbly and refreshing taste.
Served next was the Chili Cheese Fries and I fell in love with... the cheesy part of the fries. Not all were drizzled with melted cheese and bacon bits and I wasn't really crazy over the chili con carne. But the baked fries were definitely delectable and serving size was good for sharing.
The Pork Sausage Platter was served next. The platter comes with spicy devil, smoky bandit, herby hog and chewy cheese. All four sausages taste awesome! All were juicy and flavorful. Each one can be enjoyed as is but putting some homemade garlic aioli makes the sausages even better. The spicy devil was just mildly spiced so I didn’t find it hard to eat. The chewy cheese and smoky bandit were my favorites! The sausages went really well with fries too!
I liked chicken roulade as well. It was flavorful yet not overpowering.
Chicken thigh stuffed with sausage and wrapped in bacon with cream mustard grain with red skin mashed potatoes and garden veggies on the side… this was one heavy meal meant to be shared. This was one of the two dishes (with the other as the sausage platter) we managed to finish that day.
Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs was served last and no one was impressed. I’m not sure if it was because we were getting full or if it was because the other dishes were richer in flavor. But it was not as succulent as I remembered. We each just had a rib each and had everything else to go.
We didn’t get to eat the baked potato anymore as we had our week supply of carbohydrates from the other dishes.
Note: R and I ate the leftover fries and baked potatoes the following night and it still tasted good! We also heated the ribs and it tasted so much better! I guess the sauce finally set in and made the ribs more flavorful.

Before heading out, I got a free ice cream from Morganfield’s as a birthday treat! Yay!
Thank you, looloo and Morganfield’s!

Morganfield’s is located at 2nd floor, Uptown Mall, 9th Avenue corner 36th St., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
