Lowbrow Casual Restaurants, the company behind restaurant brands such as Fowlbread, Beefier and Bad Bird, has recently launched its new store at Glorietta.
BBX was originally intended to be an extension of the group’s fried chicken chain Bad Bird (with BBX standing in for “Bad Bird Express”) but it has outgrown its old concept and evolved its own identity.
BBX is now a semi-self-service restaurant that provides mall-goers an alternative to other fast-food places. This is the place to be for great-tasting and afforadably priced fried chicken, burgers and rice meals.
Oh, and being self-service means that you fetch your own condiments, clean up after yourself and pack your own leftovers for takeaways. (So parents, do take your kids here to teach them the value of CLAYGO.)
During a recent visit together with my foodie friends, I was able to try out some of BBX’s offerings, which included:
Fried Chicken Plate (Php179). Juicy and crispy chicken deep-fried Southern-style to golden brown perfection and served piping-hot with house-made gravy. The fried chicken piece is big, satisfying and well-complemented by the gravy. This is available in safe and spicy variants. Diners also have the option to go boneless just by adding (Php20).
BB Crispers (Php259). Crispy fried boneless chicken thighs in a garlic and butter glaze. A variant in better than buffalo glaze is also available.
Ruben Sandwich (Php289). Corned beef, pickled onion and cheese between toasted sourdough. I’m not a fan of corned beef sandwiches but the pickled onion and the sourdough give this sandwich a special kind of taste that I like.
Crispy Fish Sandwich (Php246). Deep-fried fillets of fish, sliced tomatoes and shredded cabbage in creamy sauce in a fluffy artisanal burger bun.
Double Longganisa and Egg (Php229). House-made longganisa patties served with sunny side up egg, atchara and vinegar.
Double Burger Steak (Php259). Two flavorful patties made from 100% ground fresh beef served with corn and cream cheese.
For these rice meals, an option to upgrade to garlic fried rice is available for Php29.
Garlic Sesame Chicken (Php230). A light and fresh salad of romaine lettuce, fried chicken and croutons doused in garlic sesame dressing.
Corn and Cream Cheese (Php89). A lovely blend of sweet corn and cream cheese which serves a great accompaniment to any of BBX’ rice plates or sandwiches.
Diners also have the option to add this or any other side dish plus iced tea to any rice plate or sandwich for just Php99.
Huskies (Php119). Parfaits made of chia seeds and coconut milk flavored with mango and coconuts. Other variants include pineapple dragonfruit and chocolate tiramisu.
BB Cakes (Php125). Moist cake rolls of Spiced Pumpkin & Cream Cheese and Ube & White Chocolate which serve as a fitting end to the meal. Also available in Banana & Dulce de Leche and Double Chocolate flavors.
BBX is definitely a welcome addition to my favorite Glorietta food haunts. Why don’t you drop by and give it a try?
Many thanks to the management and staff of BBX for the wonderful food and to Jen of Sand Under My Feet for extending the invitation!
