Albay Food Tripping #5: Gasthof

Plain Ribs at GasthofGasthof’s Famous Ribs

Gasthof, the popular German restaurant in Boracay Island famous for their ribs, now has a branch in Legazpi, Albay. This was our first stop the moment we arrived in Legazpi last November. We just began our Legazpi city tour when we suddenly saw this opposite the Legazpi City Hall.

We only ordered 2 dishes when we were there: their famous ribs and German Pig Knuckles. It was brunch time so we’re not that too hungry yet. This was my first time to dine in Gasthof because I haven’t been to Boracay (could you imagine that???) and Karla recommended me to try the ribs. The ribs were tender and tasty. Though I wasn’t completely satisfied. It was pretty OK but it does not exceed the other ribs I’ve tasted in my life. For its price, it’s was satisfactory.

German Pig Knuckles

The German Pig Knuckles were like our local Crispy Pata. Like the ribs, it was also ok. The meat was very tender and tasty. It had a plateful of garlic mashed potatoes on the side. This can be shared by 2-3 people and it can pass as a pulutan.

What I liked about this place is that prices are very affordable. I think that is what they are known for aside from the ribs.

They will be opening (or is it already open?) a branch in Naga City, Camarines Sur and also in the Bicol Region. They also have a branch in A. Venue, Makati.
