BBX | An Upscale Fastfood 2.0

As much as I want to hate fast-food restos, I can't. There are times that I adore how much they give me an instant and delicious meal in less than 5 minutes. We all are guilty of this which we can't really avoid because sometimes, we are so freakin busy, we don't have time to cook or prepare a decent meal even for ourselves.

On my visit to Glorietta 2, my foodie friends and I checked out this so-called "Fastfood 2.0" restaurant called BBX. Lowbrow Casual Restaurants is the brain behind this brand, the same as Bad Bird, Fowlbread, Beefier, and Flower Boy. Contrary to the popular belief, BBX doesn't mean Bad Bird Express. It is a stand-alone restaurant with core dishes like chicken, burgers, and rice meals.

BBX is considered fast-food because they serve quick food but with fresh restaurant-quality. Most items are priced below P200 which is very pocket-friendly considering they are located in Makati City.

The thing that really caught my attention (aside from the chicken) is the modern design of the whole restaurant. As a graphic designer, I found the whole branding so pretty and enticing. I super loved the colors they put on the menu, walls, and signages. For the seating capacity, I think BBX can accommodate up to 30 dining-in customers.

For the food, we tried the following:

Fried Chicken Plate (P179)
If you are familiar with Bad Bird chicken flavor, you'll almost get the same in here. BBX's fried chicken has eleven spices to make it tastier, not to mention the skin's crispiness. If you want an extra gravy, just add P10. If you still insist for a little more extra, just add P99 for an upgrade to iced tea + choice of side.

Better Than Buffalo Crispers (P259)
Boneless chicken thigh with evenly coated buffalo glaze. If you don't like it hot, you may still opt to order other flavors such as garlic & butter and calamansi & fish sauce.

Ruben Sandwich (P289)
I don't know why they called this Ruben but the ingredients are corned beef, pickled onions, and cheese.

Bacon Cheeseburger (P249)
This burger looks super good as well as its taste! I liked the juicy patty which is sinfully good together with bacon.

Double Burger Steak (P259)
For its price, I found this worth it. The whole serving is good to make your tummy full. The beef patty is made from 100% fresh ground beef, for your information.

Double Longganisa and Egg (P229)
One of the tastiest dishes I've tried here. I'm not really a longganisa type of person but this one is an exception.

BBCakes (P125/ slice)
Their cakes are displayed on the glass chiller near the counter so you'll get easier access in case you crave them. We had Spiced Pumpkin and Ube. Both of them have cream cheese in the middle, not too sweet, and very soft in every bite.

An upscale version, BBX is what we need in terms of quick in service and affordability + no service charge, but doesn't compromise the food they serve. Hopefully, they expand in the north so soon. Aside from the ones we tried, they still have other dishes on the menu which caught my interest such as Party Spaghetti, Fried Shrimp Burger, BB Nachos, and Huskies.
