Now on their fifth year in the industry, the fine folks from the Standard Group (the people behind Yabu: House of Katsu and Ippudo Philippines) introduce to the Philippines the authentic American BBQ experience through an award-winning barbeque joint from New York City.
Mighty Quinn’s is a highly-loved barbeque which first set up shop in the East Village and it is helmed by pitmaster Chef Hugh Mangum. Mangum is currently in Manila to celebrate the opening week at the first Philippine outlet, located at the third level of Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall. The Mighty Quinn’s Philippines team has been setting up a series of food previews and private tastings prior to its public store opening today, December 13, 2016.
Hugh Mangum has been hailed as “Barbeque King of New York”, and sticks to the barbeque experience he has long been passionate about from New York to Manila: slow-smoked, served quickly. Mangum also shares their joy upon learning that the New York Times scored Mighty Quinn’s as the highest-rated barbeque in New York, which is a rare feat for fast-casual restaurants. Their restaurant was also named as Most Prized Performer and made it to the Top 10 Best Restaurants 2013.
