Very good food. Highly recommended for families who want that distinct taste in Ribs and Bone Marrow Soup.

After touring our relatives from Palawan to Caleruega, we head straight to Tagaytay and had our dinner meal in Ribchon.

Ribchon is along Mahogany Avenue, Tagaytay. The vibe of the place is semi Industrial, yet warm and inviting. It is kept clean and everybody seems to be enjoying their meal while having conversation. It sets a tone of informal dining, where everyone can have a good meal while relaxing and enjoying time with family or friends.

We ordered Crispy Pata, Bulalo and Fresh Vegetable Spring Rolls to be shared with 6 adults.

The orders were taken well attentively, suggesting other best sellers we might want to try.

The food were served approximately close to expected time it said to be serve, and boy! The servings were big and appetizingly looks delicious.

Their take on Crispy Pata alone is delicious,
Crispy yet moist and juicy porkylicious...had it tried with their spicy vinegar, or their tanglad oil elevated the taste on a different higher level. It is like having 3 different crispy pata, all gastronomically satisfying and worth the price.

The Bulalo is so tender, the soup is soulfully satisfying. By the taste itself, it is purely beef broth, with no additive seasoning except perhaps for salt. Rest assured, it was perfect for a cold rainy night to warm us all.

We were expecting to have one piece fresh lumpia which supposed to be my Aunt's dinner. It surprised us all when we saw a plate of two large fresh lumpia in a bed of garlic peanut sauce. They also serve it with extra sauce. It was a simple medley of veggies, all fresh and the lumpia wrapper itself is also fresh. Moist and a bit chewy complementing the crispyness of the veggies and its sauce.

We werent able to finish everything, what is good about Ribchon, their take outs comes in a plastic food container, and a nice bag. You can even ask for tanglad oil for free (well, at least for us since we havent consumed all the crispy pata).

The crew were all snappy and kind to assist in all concerns.

All in all, Ribchon is worth every penny. They got fish, veggies, and meat. Meal comes in hefty serving for sharing, quality food and value for money.

So when you are in Tagaytay, try Ribchon!

With the ribs, being from the US and used to the great variety of ribs regional styles, this place was a disappointment. But accompanying soup (pumpkin) was very good. And enjoyed the fish sinigang in Guava. Service was attentive and must say price point is fair.

family had lunch here on december 31 and everyone enjoyed the food. we've eaten here a total of 3x since then.

we also order the pork ribs and we love the barako sauce. also good items in the menu are okoy bites, kansi and sinigang na salmon belly.

they are also generous in applying the senior citizen discount.

will probably eat here again if we are around tagaytay.

We were caught in Tagaytay traffic during the New Year's peak and decided to try out this new restaurant in the city. Interiors are nice with modern, industrial design. Service is so-so. Their sinigang is really good, so is their okoy bites. But their ribs which of course is their signature dish given the restaurant's name didn't impress. More bones than meat, as they probably go by weight, which should be okay, but the meat shrunk too much exposing more bones than the meat itself. Meat is dry and overly flavored with lemongrass in their hopes to achieve that lechon flavor. Overall, the place is just too expensive for the quality and overrated.
