We had lunch here today. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Xtremely Xpresso co-owns the place. I had high hopes for the place because I loved Xtremely Xpresso.
I love the interiors of the place. It's blue and white, really cool to the eyes.
The Nachos are big, super cheesy, and filled with ground beef. For cheese lovers, these nachos would be heaven.
The Big Ben pizza though was a disappointment for me. I guess I had too high of an expectation because Xtremely Xpresso's pizza was so good so I though it would be the same. IT WASN'T.
The clam chowder is definitely the best bang for buck soup. It was creamy, filled with a lot of ingredients, and big. For Php140, this one serves 2-3 people.
The lamb chop was okay. It wasn't the best lamb chop and for the price of almost 400, I felt that this could have been cooked better. It felt lacking in taste for me.
The steak on the other hand was a totally different thing. It looked burnt but when I cut the meat, it was surprisingly soft. It was cooked perfectly and the mashed potato was also really great. This one, though a bit pricier than the others, is definitely worth every peso.
The ribs which is their best seller was also very soft. I get why this is the one thing that everyone orders. It costs only Php220 but the taste is definitely worth more.
I also got to try the Peppermint Mocha which was really good. I finished the entire cup, that kind of good.
Would I recommend this place? I'd say yes but make sure to not order the pizza so you won't be disappointed.
Ben's Kitchen is located inside Harbor Point Mall, Subic.
