A slew of new restaurants that serve grilled dishes are slowly coming into town, so Third Degree Charred Cebu came in with a promising menu that will set your taste buds on fire.
The restaurant brings fusion cuisine to the table, crafted as an original masterpiece by Mr. Richard himself, father of business manager Rina Lim. Operations of this restaurant just recently begun last December 2016, and furthermore continues to amplify the exquisite cuisines that they offer.
Third Degree Charred Cebu Grill & Resto Bar Bestsellers
A mixture of their bestsellers has become such because of their unique taste and combination of ingredients. None like the other, they claimed, therefore I reckon it’s something worth trying. Indeed, theirs didn’t underestimate.
A Crispy Kangkong appetizer led the entire table of foods we were about to devour that night. Paired with a creamy garlic sauce, the fried kangkong was a blend of otherworldly, if not for the oil that lingers as an aftertaste.
Braised Beef Kitting
This dish has a fall-off-the-bone meat that meshes well with the potato cuts — a savory combination, one that you could easy chew in your mouth, literally. Unarguably, this dish was well-deserved of the applause and amazement gathered from me and my friends. It’s a specialty dish worth trying if meat is your main agenda and you’re looking to try one of their original and reinvented recipes.
The flavor of the Kinamatisang Kawali is not overpowering and did not go overboard with saltiness either, and has the right tartness you’d expect from freshly cut tomatoes. Chewy kawali meat gritted in between my teeth would chomp down gracefully, I’d imagine, with a glass of beer (which they also offer — and a whole lot of liquor).
Standing as an all-time favorite item, this Sizzling Sisig was cooked to a compelling degree. Theirs was cooked just right with enough drizzle of vinegar and sauce, which was a surefire way to heighten my appetite.
This sinfully-made crispy pata skin pulled me in complete reverie, and I was quick to give in to the temptation to limit myself to just a few servings. Even without the sauce, the meat itself is tender to satiate my mouth. A single order can already appease a whole family or big group, and so I’d recommend this as well.
Pork BBQ Sticks
A grilled-centered restaurant won’t be complete without the Pork BBQ, and the ones here at Third Degree Charred Cebu will set you right off the bat of your meal. Its flavored-enhanced sauce took the dish up a notch, which, might I say, is at par with that of their classic rib’s.
Other Grilled Options
Aside from pork and beef, Third Degree Charred Cebu Bar and Grill also offers seafood, chicken, vegetables, and soup dishes. Their Panga Ordinary and BBQ Ribs are also worth noting, given that my friends wiped off the plate a few minutes before I was able to dig in.
Another specialty, the Oyster Omelette, drifts off to another level of distinctness, but I surmised it was unexpectedly a nice touch of flavor. A surfeit of other Cebuano favorites might give you a couple of minutes more of pondering what to order, but for reference, their bestsellers are what you can see above.
Third Degree Charred Cebu Grill & Resto Bar Ambiance
Dimly lit lights in an industrialized setting was an authentic glee to my eyes. The grilling station is situated on one side, and wooden tables and steel chairs populated the rest of the area. Since the location is on the second floor of a building, down below you’ll see the neighboring establishments still unopened thus far. I liked how simple their interior is – an industrial ceiling with overhead lightbulbs and pipes.
