I love the smell of grilled pork barbecue wafting through the air from our backyard each time there’s a birthday celebration in the house. I am a huge fan of pork ribs and chicken for the longest time. I crave for those sinfully delicious treats almost 24/7. But of course, finding the right place for the best mouth-watering chicken and pork ribs had been quite a challenge especially for food bloggers like me.
I’ve been looking for an establishment that has a distinctive, intangible quality, which makes their version of the dish stand out. Some smoke, steam, boil, roast, grill, bake, sear or fry their ribs to perfection—most of them use a combination of methods. In the end though, the very best ribs touch on all the tastes your tongue can take—bitter, salty, sweet, sour and savory. There’s something so satisfyingly primal about getting a messy, red smear all over your face, gnawing on the bone of the animal that’s feeding you. (Oops, I don’t mean to offend vegetarians and the group like PETA). Oh, and as I write this, just thinking about those foods are enough to make me want to salivate.
A friend of mine (she’s actually a culinary classmate) claims that she’s finally found what I’ve been looking for in the city of San Juan. Somewhere in Little Baguio lies this secret spot called Carol’s Texan 5. She says the ribs will totally win you over. God knows how much I’ve been yearning to go in San Juan and taste it for myself.

I want to be invited to this Bloggers Buffet event because I'd like to meet the owner, Ms. Carol. I'm curious how she makes the best chicken and ribs in this side of town. Of course, without mentioning her secret recipes, but she could at least give me some good advice on how to make grilled meats juicier and tastier. Carol's Texan 5's dishes are personal recipes of the owner, that simply spreads by word of mouth and it's been a hit with her family and friends. Aside from that, there's nothing like having great foods enjoyed with the company of good friends from the blogosphere, right?
I could vividly picture it out now: ultimate Texan spareribs are cooked low-and-slow over the grill, then topped with a zesty barbecue sauce. The result? Fall off the bone ribs that doesn’t need much sauce, they’re perfectly seasoned to peppery perfection and served with a side of chunky sweet potato fries or creamy coleslaw. Just looking at these photos are enough to bring you to gustatory heaven. Hmm...I'm keeping my fingers crossed, I hope to be invited....
