An occasion as special as a spouse's birthday deserves only the best dinner. Naturally, we tried to pick out the best dining place for this. And for this year, Tony Roma's was our pick.
We tried out their branch in Alabang Town Center. The interiors was bright and neat (pardon the fotos' very yellow cast... tried to correct it as much as I could in the post processing on my lafi but failed). I didn't want to sit in the regular table so we chose a couch table.
Since Tony Roma's is supposed to be famous for its baby back ribs, we opted to have a full slab of the Original and a Caesar's salad. While waiting for our orders, their complementary bread with spreads came. The bread was a bit too chewy, bordering on tough, and the spreads weren't exactly extraordinary. (butter and herbed cheese)...
Then came our baby back ribs... I was expecting a huge one, having heard that TR's serves one of the bests. But to my utter dismay, our one whole rack looked so frail and hapless. I couldn't help but wonder how this merits the description "good for two". I would have to admit though, that I liked the taste and flavor of TR's than Gumbo's baby back ribs, but the latter (4 of us shared it) was a whole lot bigger.
