WANDERLUST| Grilled delights now at Munchtown

WHILE on the lookout for something new in the metro, our good friend businessman and restaurateur Carlo Lorenzana gave us a tip on his latest culinary venture, Munchtown Grill along F. Torres Street.

The newly relocated restaurant (used to be at SM Lanang Premier) has been reinvented into a pizza and grill – and all the comfort food we love in between – place.

“We transferred Munchtown to a much accessible site and renamed it Munchtown Grill to cater to more customers who love grilled food. We all know that Dabawenyos love barbecue,” he said during our recent late afternoon munchtime with some of our friends from print and online media.

Aside from slashing down the price to pocket-friendly levels, they have added some scrumptious skewered delights on their menu.

Their grilled meats and seafood are all affordably priced. One can enjoy a stick for as low as PhP15 (for that oh-so-sinful-it’s-so-good chicken skin). You might also want to opt for their mouthwatering grilled chicken wings (PhP40), chicken gizzard (PhP18), bacon-wrapped pineapple (PhP40), pork belly (PhP25), shrimp (PhP48), or tuna (PhP38).

Our favorite form the pack, which is also their bestseller, is their super tender barbecued Black Angus Riblets for only PhP88 a stick.

If you want something different, I highly recommend their grilled shitake (PhP55) and their melt-in-your-mouth grilled ox tongue (PhP40).

But, if you can’t make up your mind, just go for their Grill Platter, a medley of 20 grilled meats (PhP480). or their Seafood Platter, consisting of nine different seafood picks (PhP320), both perfect and “sulit” for lunch with your officemates, dinner with your family, or nightcap with your barkada. Yes, they serve ice-cold beer – you’re welcome!

Aside from their grilled fares, you can still enjoy their all-time favorites, such as their fresh-off-the-oven pizzas, fresh fries (yes, real potatoes!), pasta, mini-burgers, buffalo wings and their signature fried chicken – all best paired with their yummy milkshakes. I’m still undecided though which one is my favorite: salted caramel, peanut butter, strawberry, Oreo, or all four.

PERFECT place for bonding with friends over food and drinks

Compared to their previous location, Munchtown Grill now has an al fresco area for that after-5 PM chill-out session with friends and an air-conditioned room, which is also perfect for intimate events, get-togethers, or perhaps, a venue for your office’s Christmas party.
