Tony Roma's @ Siam Paragon Mall, Bangkok

It was dinner time in Siam Paragon Mall, and there were 4 carnivores at large.

Ok, it's a tad sad, but this was actually our first time eating pork ribs at Tony Roma's. And how I wished then that I was not nursing a tummy bug, I could have eaten one whole rack of ribs in my peak form.

Complimentary bread & butter.

We dug in to the Appetizer Sampler : Potato Skins, Fire Wings and Mozzarella Sticks with three dipping sauces (THB415). The fire wings and potato skins topped with cheese were super tasty, and deep fried breaded mozarella was definitely a new experience for me!

Our main course consisted of 2 full slabs of ribs. Slab #1 was The Original Baby Backs (THB595). Tony Roma's award winning baby back ribs were invented in 1972 in Florida, USA. They are world-famous for these babies. Cut from the tenderloin and basted with Tony Roma's original BBQ sauce, the restaurant considers them the “filet mignon” of ribs.

Slab #2 was the St. Louis-Style Ribs (THB595). A very special cut of spare ribs, the St. Louis-style ribs rank high in the thick, juicy and meaty departments. We tried it with Tony Roma’s Red Hots sauce; a zesty blend of chili pepper, black pepper, crushed red peppers, chipotle peppers and Tabasco sauce.

Rib entrées are served with cole slaw and a choice of baked potato, french fries, ranch style beans, rice, corn on the cob or tomato pesto.

Of the two types of ribs, I had a preference for the St. Louis-Style Ribs probably cos the marinade was smokier and sweeter, it had more zing to it.

The aftermath of our attack (which set us back THB1775). Burp!
