Mexican-Latin Restaurant GRINGO just started serving their signature Southern Spice Chicken and Baby Back Ribs to a fourth location at the 3rd Level of the SM Megamall Atrium!

It was in March, last year, when I first got a taste of the “Muy Caliente” dishes of GRINGO prior to the grand opening of their first store at The Block Sm City North EDSA. Barely a year after, they now have four physical branches in Metro Manila which includes the one at The Fort Residences in BGC, Legaspi Village in Makati City and the recently inaugurated SM Megamall Atrium branch.

According to restaurateur Reagan tan, GRINGO (which literally translates to an American or British male foreigner in Spanish-speaking countries) is like ‘the’ friend we all wish we have. He hosts the best get-together along with his closest amigos (friends) and cooks up one mean Mexican-Latin feast!

Chicken & Ribs

And that’s where I am exactly at two Saturdays ago as GRINGO SM Megamall put out one helluva Latin feast for all its guests starting with their Original (285 Pesos/Half) and Southern Spiced (295 Pesos/Half) Chicken!

How bout some ultra-manly full rack of GRINGO’s BBQ Baby Back Ribs (620 Pesos).

The Chicken and Ribs comes with GRINGO’s signature sauces that they call “Sauce Mio”. It comes in two variants – Lemon Herb and Hot & Spicy! The Lemon Herb sauce is the all-around dip, a perfect mix of herbs and spices with a fruity lemony flavor. While the Hot & Spicy sauce sets you on the right appetite – it’s so spicy that you will sweat inside out!

Now add some sides on your Chicken and Ribs like White, Garlic or Mexican Rice, Buttered Corn, Smokey Beans, Mashed Potatoes, Marbled Potato Salad, French Fries, Fried Saba, Macaroni Salad, Roasted Eggplant or Squash – and you’re all set to go!
