Casual dining and booze at the 'Cue Modern Barbecue in BGC

Earlier this month, we had been to the ‘Cue Modern Barbecue branch in Bonifacio High Street Centrale in BGC in the ground floor of Building C3, right beside the fountain plaza and tiers of concrete staircases that serves as mini-amphitheater for some open-space entertainment.  

Campfire-style Skillet of Queso Fundido
It's white cheddar, chorizo, cilantro, and red tomatoes...
... that you have to scoop out and place as filling on a lightly toasted flour tortillas.
The restaurant has an elegant façade with fancy interiors.  Some tables and two sets of tables with two canvass tents are placed on the porch just right in front of the store for a casual outdoor dining where you can take fresh air, listen and take a glimpse of some live musical entertainment or hear the natural nuisances of children gleefully running around the pulsating jets of fountains in the nearby plaza.

Hot Pork Belly Tips
It is a thick sticks of fried breaded pork...
...served with 3 kinds of dips that includes Dijon-honey and bourbon char siu barbecue dips.
Inside, you can be seated near the mini-bar of the main bar for you to easily choose and pick your drinks. There are few more tables inside the resto for small groups of diners and for those who prefer to dine in air-conditioned place. 

Cheesy popcorn is served while waiting for the main dish.

The decorations inside accented with framed images of pork, poultry, and beef meat parts certainly reminded me of 8 Cuts Burger Blends, which we learned is related to the ‘Cue Modern Barbecue. 

The framed meat parts of  familiar food animals reminded me of 8 Cuts Burger Blends.

Dining here may require advance reservation if you prefer to be seated in preferred side of the resto of if you are with a group of diners. So make that call now to reserve your space.

The ‘Cue Modern Barbecue branch in Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City

The ‘Cue Modern Barbecue is an American steakhouse that opened a branch in BGC last May 2012. Though the name of the resto expressly mentioned “barbecue” the stuffs it serves are not just limited to grilled or barbecued dishes. There are a lot of choices to select from. They have a variety of dishes made with seafood poultry, pork, and beef prepared and cooked the American way.  The staff occasionally mark  particular dishes as their picks, and put warning sign on the menu that some are spicy-flavored. 

For the booze, they would serve cocktails and other spirits, beers, and wines.  For your pulutan, you can order their pica-pica, finger foods, and spicy appetizers

Two glasses of lovely but kicking cocktails:  (Left) Bonifacio Sour, a concoction of Buffalo Trace Bourbon with lemon, Calamansi, egg white, and red wine float and served in short glass. (Right) Sweet Soul Picnic, a concoction of Sauza Tequila Gold with fresh watermelon agave and fernet branca, also served on short glass and on the rocks. 

All the prizes in the menu are inclusive of VAT. Only a service charge of 10% will apply, but for the nice dishes and superb cocktail concoctions they served, you will not mind giving tips to the serving staffs.
