Get your Comfort Food Fix at Fat Daddy's Smokehouse

Who can resist a juicy rack of perfectly smoked ribs? Definitely not me! I am not exactly a meat lover, but I always find smoked and grilled meat irresistible. Lucky for me, I was invited to an event at a restaurant in Quezon City that has mastered pork spare ribs and that is Fat Daddy's Smokehouse. 

Fat Daddy's Smokehouse is currently located at Marikina and UP Town Center in Katipunan, QC. My blogger friends and I were able to visit the latter branch. I was quite impressed at how spacious their UP Town Center branch is. Every spot is literally Instagram-able - walls have cartoon-like artwork, light bulbs are creatively dangling from the ceiling, and stools and seats are chic as well. 

Not only the interiors at Fat Daddy's are impressive, their food is likewise sinfully good. This Southern USA-inspired smokehouse and barbeque restaurant serves a rich array of smoked and grilled food choices, including pork ribs, smoked wings, smoked beef brisket, and other meat dishes. We were able to try out some of their best sellers and I was incredibly full and satisfied with their dishes. 

Buttermilk Fried Livers - P210

I never expected myself to like this dish so much. I am not a fan of liver because it has a strong and distinct taste that needs getting used to. However, their buttermilk batter made this starter not only bearable, but also addicting. I think I was the one who devoured most of this dish. It was that good! 

Jera's Ultimate Pulled Pork and Beef Nachos - Half for P300 or Whole for P600

Nachos would never fail to satisfy as an appetizer. Fat Daddy's Smokehouse's version is a must try as it is filled with smoked pull pork, beef, and bacon. It has a generous amount of cheese sauce and barbeque sauce to keep your appetite going. We were given a whole serving and it was good for at least five people to share.

Chiquito's Grilled Corn - P135

The Chiquito's Grilled Corn is quite a surprise. If you are expecting a sweet and cheesy grilled corn taste, you are absolutely wrong. This differs from other grilled corn dish because it has an adequate amount of spice making it perfect as a side dish.  

Mac and Cheese - P170

There is nothing more comforting than a serving of the good old Mac and Cheese. This is probably the ultimate comfort food in my opinion. Fat Daddy's Smokehouse's Mac and Cheese is not only filled with creamy cheese but also with loads of bacon strips making it sinfully delicious. 

Smoked Pork Ribs - P480 for 1/4, P900 for 1/2, and P1,800 for whole; Smoked Hotlinks - P120 each

If there is anything that Fat Daddy's Smokehouse has mastered, it is definitely their smoked pork ribs. Each serving of perfectly made smoked pork ribs starts with picking the right rack of ribs. Its thickness should be even to ensure that all sides will be cooked on the same level. The smoked ribs are likewise complemented with a barbecue sauce to enhance the taste. For 10 straight hours, a rack of pork ribs is smoked with the right amount of heat. This allows the release of flavor in each layer of the meat without compromising its tenderness. Perfection is carefully made low and slow at Fat Daddy's Smokehouse.

Smoked Beef Brisket - P550 for 200g

Aside from their Smoked Pork Ribs, there are also other smoked meat available such as Smoked Pulled Pork Shoulder, Smoked Bacon, Smoked Chicken Barbeque, among others. We were able to try out their Smoked Beef Brisket and Smoked Hotlinks. Both are dishes that should be tried at Fat Daddy's Smokehouse. Meat is tender, flavorful, and simply irresistible. If you plan to go with friends and family, they have a Smoked Meat Platter which is good for at least four for only P2400. 

Daddy's Burger - P350

Daddy's Burger is not your ordinary grilled burger. The thick patty was seasoned well and grilled to perfection. It was also served with tomatoes, lettuce, and crispy potato chips, among others. Eating it definitely feels like home - a perfect comfort food choice. I wish the patty was more juicy though, but other than that the dish is a must try. 

Smokey Maple Bacon Milkshake and Caramel Popcorn Milkshake - P195 each

There's nothing better to compliment comfort food than creamy and rich milkshakes. Aside from regular milkshakes such as vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Fat Daddy's Smokehouse offers peculiar yet delicious milkshake combinations. The Smokey Maple Bacon Milkshake may sound weird but it was weirdly good. It gave the good old vanilla milkshake a smokey and salty flavor. The Caramel Popcorn Milkshake is also a must try. I personally love anything caramel (from frappes to dessert) and this milkshake satisfied my caramel cravings. 

Bacon Smores Dip - P250

Our comfort food escapade will not be complete without desserts that make you feel like home. The Bacon Smores Dip is not your typical smores dessert. The melted rich chocolate and sweet marshmallow combination is filled with bacon bits and strips to give it that salty kick. It was oddly delicious.

Peach Cobbler - P250

Lastly, we were able to try out the Peach Cobbler. This dessert is a melody of sweet and tangy flavors. The fillings have that sour taste and the vanilla ice cream on top gave it a sweet twist. This is definitely a hit among kids and kids at heart.
