So it's a weekday night, you've got loads to do in the office. It's past office hours yet there you are, typing away the report after last minute revisions were sent just before you try to pick up your bag and leave your desk.
Then finally, you pressed the period and—you're done! You sigh in relief and rest your weary body on the back of your chair. At that moment, you realize your stomach is already grumbling. So why not reward yourself with a great meal?
Your next destination: A good restaurant near the workplace where you can chill your muscles and enjoy good food at the same time, as if it's a weekend. Who says a work day can't be as fun as your weekend nights out?
The famed Rue Bourbon in the south has extended another branch in the farther north. Now, you won't need to drive too far for their mouthwatering ribs!
But more than their popular specialty, Rue Bourbon has expanded their menu—from bar chow with a twist to brunch favorites. Oh, and did we mention they have sinful dessert, too? [related: In Focus: What's the Perfect Breakfast?]
For people who brunch, this Silog will be your top choice! Why—it's wagyu beef so tender and flavorful, so what's not to love?
Wagyu Garlic Tapsilog
For people who love hanging out, call out a friend or two and swap stories in the late of the night while munching on a plate of nachos made deadly delicious with sisig.
For you and your best buds, invite them over to share a sinful serving of this dish—crispy, luscious, and meaty with every bite. Your barkada will surely be digging this!
Crispy Corned Scarface
For hardcore Rue Bourbon fans, get to taste their juicy ribs in this branch as well—this classic is always a bestseller.
For people who love a sweet ending, or want to impress a date, get this no-fail baked brownie dessert—a skillet will be gone in less than five minutes, tops. [related: The Six Fix: Dessert Must-Trys that Celebrities Are Raving About Right Now]
Cast Iron Baked Brownie and Butterscotch
You may end with dessert, but a Rue visit won't be complete without a taste of their drinks—from flavored beers (try Caramel and Watermelon Wheat) to cocktails (recommended: Moscow Mule). Get a glass, after that much-worked on report—and go home feeling a bit buzzed but satisfied.
Find Rue Bourbon at 312B Tomas Morato Avenue, Quezon City. Open daily from 6 PM to 3 AM. Also visit their other branches in Bonifacio Global City, Eastwood, Salcedo Village, and BF Homes. More information on their website.
