Its my first time here in Cue Modern BBQ, from the title of this restaurant, you can tell that they serve heavy meat, pork and lots of grilled goodies. The term cue or BBQ will ring a bell for heavy meat eaters’ ear because the food concept here is inspired from Southern American cuisine. It can be spicy, chili, or meaty, that’s one of the iconic flavors of a Latin and Southern American style. I was thinking of a Cajun style, but Southern is always the best!
The thing that I like here in Cue Modern BBQ are their cocktail drinks, their mix and formula for alcohol based drinks are for the friendly kind. Yes, the drink can betray you if you paired it with a wrong meal. But I learned that pairing a good cocktail with a hot pork belly tips is one heavenly experience. Try it here in Cue Modern BBQ and see if you get tickled.
I thought that this resto is an import from another country, but I learned that it’s a new resto developed by Moment Group of restos.
if you are looking for a place to get a good drink, then this is a perfect spot for you to enjoy even if its not a happy hour.
here are the food that we tried here in Cue Modern BBQ
Hot pork belly tips
”Dijon-honey and bourbon char siu BBQ dips”
I tried to stay away from this porky belly tip, but its so tempting to pinch this pork belly with my fork, its so yummy soft from the inside and crispy from the outside. You can choose three kinds of dip to add more flavor to your pork belly. I always choose the bbq sauce, they are always the best!
Campfire-style skillet of cueso fundido
White cheddar, chorizo, cilantro, red tomatoes and flour tortillas
Southern American are an expert when it comes to queso fundidos. I also love to eat a kind of food from the South Amercia and Cue’s style is a bit close from the original fundidos. The chorizo meat added some spice kick after a bit of that tortilla with super melted cheese.
I admit.. super bitin..pero yummy!
Cocktail concepts were introduced to us here in Cue Modern BBQ, I didn’t get the right story when they presented this two drinks to us. All I know is that they developed this Bonifacio Sour cocktail drinks only for this resto. I
Sweet Soul Picnic
”Sauza Tequila Gold, fresh watermelon, cardamom agave, fernet branca. Served on the rocks”
”Buffalo Trace Bourbon, lemon, kalamansi, egg white and red wine float. Served short”
take note… the Bonifacio Sour is the best….super strong and a good pair with a porky meat.
