Since its launch months ago, RBG's Supersize meal has been getting a lot of good feedback and was admirably patronized by both local and foreign diners alike. Not only that hearty eaters get enjoy their money's worth in terms of quantity, the food is also a real delight that customers keep coming back for more.
And because it was well received, RBG has good news for you! The SUPERSIZE MEAL now comes bigger, tastier and more choices have been added to the set menu. This time around, the Supersize meal comes in 10 courses and a choice of drink. The set meal can now serve 6-7 persons. If I have my way to keep this job of mine forever, I’d really take it because I often get so lucky to sample delectable dishes and it’s always a joy to share this delightful gastronomic experience with you. And without further ado, here’s what you’re going to expect from the upsized RBG menu.
Your appetizer will be one of these four; You can have a choice of RBG Traditional Caesar Salad, Mediterranean Salad with Light Yogurt-Cilantro Dressing which is new to the menu and two others that we sampled.
Panzanella Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. This Tuscan inspired dish has an intense and distinct flavor. If you want something different from your usual mild plate to tease your palate, then this is absolutely a must-try.

Apple, Mango, Celery Salad. This dish holds a mild, gently sweet blend of fresh fruits and veggies that is easy and comfortable to my taste. If your salad penchant is on this side, then this is a good choice.

For sidings, you can have one from these four choices; French Fries, Onion Rings, Nachos or Toasted Ciabatta with French Onion Dip.
I love Nachos with cheese, they're heavenly crunchy. And having tried RBG's supersized version, I love it even more. This cheese overload nachos is a dish to drool for, look at that - cheesy and crunchy!
This toasted, floury crusted Ciabatta is new to the set. It comes with French onion dip that is, I’m telling you, orgasmic. I can live with just this, so good. Highly recommended pick!

For the soup, you’ll have a choice of: Cream of Chicken, Potato Garlic Soup, Ham and Corn Tomato Soup and my personal favorite - Roasted Pumpkin Soup. I love my soup healthy, creamy and smooth, this one’s a match, perfect!

And now for the main course; there's a choice of classic 8-Piece Fried Chicken, Crispy Roasted Pork Belly, and two new dishes, Steamed Tangigue with Mango-Cilantro Relish and Seared Beef Cutlets with Chimichurri Sauce. I normally write my blogposts at night, flow comes in easy for me at this time of the day, but the thing is, seeing and writing about this crispy goodness made me want to break in RBG right now. This crisp Pinoy classic dish is a true gastro fill. I bet, you too would want an extra serving of rice if you’ll have this.

If you want your main course light, this Steamed Tangigue is a real delight. Who knew, a Mango-Cilantro Relish added in every fish bite can create a distinctly sweet and savoury flavour you wouldn’t know you’ve filled in a mound of rice onto your plate. This fish course is also a must-try.
Beef lovers, rejoice! SuperSize Meal got a Seared Beef Cutlets with Chimichurri Sauce in the menu. It’s not every day we get to eat beef with sauce of Argentine in origin. Catch it while it’s serving big. This beef dish is succulently tender and is so full of bursting essence of herbs and spices. This is absolutely good, I could cry.
