Foodie Alert: Morganfield's 5th Year Anniversary Platter

P never fails to make me giddy whenever I see an unread email from her. It always mean one thing… good food! This time around, we were invited by Morganfield’s to try its anniversary platter called Presidential Platter priced at PHP3,295. After a few coordinations here and there, we all decided to enjoy the humongous platter on a Saturday. 

Hello, Morganfield’s
After celebrating my sister’s birthday at Buffalo Wild Wings (and used up the gift certificates I got from looloo’s 12 days of Christmas contest + R’s Bistro card discount and coupon), I headed straight to Morganfield’s for some serious eating. 
C and N were already inside when I arrived. We were given a pitcher of Tropical Fruit Tea which is a refreshing blend of mango and orange puree with fresh calamansi and orange bits. 
I loved that despite the puree overload, it wasn’t overly sweet and did the job in quenching my thirst.
After a while, the hefty platter—composed of half slab Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs, half slab Garlicky BBQ Spare RibsChili Cheese Footlong Dog Pork SchnitzelBeer Battered PrawnsChili Cheese NachosCaesar Saladcorn bread and french fries—arrived. Just the sight of it made us gulp. 
How could we finish a feast that seems to be made for 6-8 persons? But we put that thought aside and went from one table to the next in search for light to take nice photos. 
And after 20 minutes or so, we were finally happy with our photos and went back to our table to try the dishes. 
I first sampled the lighter dishes—salad, nachos, beer battered prawns, schnitzel and fries. 
The salad was your usual Caesar salad—tangy and crisp. 
We were impressed with the beer battered prawns as the breading remained crispy despite the fact that it had to wait for almost half an hour before we get to enjoy it. The sausage was also great. It was meaty and juicy. However, the middle part was spicy, or so I was told. I guess Morganfield’s is serious when they say “chili cheese”. The nachos were actually spicy too but tolerable. I managed to eat two nacho chips without water break. And just like everything else, the fries had to wait for us to finish shooting. Surprisingly, it didn’t turn starchy. It was still pretty good! 
Next to be devoured were the ribs.
The Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs and Garlicky BBQ Spare Ribs were tender and oh so flavorful. Hickory had a lovely sweet taste with a  tinge of tanginess while Garlicky had a powerful but not overwhelming vampire repellant taste. 
Don’t let the word “half” trick you as these Morganfield’s slabs are huge! 
I ended my meal munching on the corn bread which was buttery and fluffy. I loved its light sweet taste and was the perfect dish to end the meal.
Guys, this platter is a steal! It is definitely good for at least 7 if you are all light eaters.  
And great news for south foodies! Morganfield’s Mall of Asia branch is opening soon!

Morganfield’s is located at 2nd Floor, Uptown Mall, 9th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
