phil’s bbq

After a nice walk at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, my cousin Tony took my parents and me to the best barbeque restaurant ever: Phil’s BBQ.

We ordered a set of baby back ribs with corn-on-the-cob and potato salad as side dish and my cousin had an El Toro Sandwich. I thought it was not enough food for four people, so I ordered a portion of small fries and onion rings.

(Nope, little Panda is not edible.)

Small portion of fries? If you have an appetite of a grizzly bear! We couldn’t finish those crispy little fellows. But we finished the crispiest onion rings I have ever eaten. A bite feels like a small earthquake in your mouth. Sooo tasty. The potato salad was delicious, too. Normally I don’t like potato salad with mayo and joghurt because it feels heavy in your stomach. But Phil’s potato salad tasted fresh and light. And the ribs? It was so sooooooo tender. I think Elvis was thinking about those ribs when he sang “Love me tender”. And it was more than the word “delicious” can express!

I still dream of it.
