Just opposite Cafe Bob’s at Lacson Street, right at the center of all the foodie action in Bacolod City, is the Open Grounds. Basically it’s just an open area where with different food concessionaires where people can dine, drink booze and listen to music at the same time. The place reminds me of the Collective in Malugay or Cubao X in Quezon City because of the street art around.
Some of the popular favorites among locals are there such as Byron’s Ribs and Aida’s Inasal.
For our main dish, we ordered one full slab of ribs from Byron’s. It was only for PHP 250, super cheap compared to Manila! We asked them to remove them from the bone so it looked like the photo above. The meat was very tender with a little bit of fat. Super worth it!
When you visit the Open Grounds, make sure that you agree to smell barbeque afterwards because most of the stalls there grill something. 🙂
