It’s no secret that Filipinos love to eat. We’re not afraid to experiment with different cuisines, which is why all-you-can eat buffets are always a hit. Have you ever tried all-you-can-eat kebab, though? If not and you happen to be a fan of Mediterranean food, let me introduce you to Jack’s Joint.
Jack’s Joint is the brainchild of a bunch of high school friends who have quite the passion for Mediterranean food. You know what they say about doing something that you love, so you don’t have to work a day in your life? That’s exactly what these guys did.
The original Jack’s Joint hails from Tondo, Manila. Thomas Ang and his friends decided that they didn’t just want to enjoy the food by themselves; they also wanted to share the good food. This led to the bunch doing a franchise.

Now, before I ramble on too much, let’s go back to talking about food.
While Jack’s Joint mainly focuses on Mediterranean food, they also have burgers and pizza—for when you and your friends can’t easily settle on one type of cuisine!
During our visit, we made sure we tried at least one of each. Here’s what we had: Ox Brain (Php100), Adana Kebab (Php175), Lamb Shank (Php585), Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Fries (Php140), Chicken Pirzola (Php155), Four-Cheese Pizza (Php340), Small Strawberry Shake (Php75) and Big Yogurt Shake (Php95).
(Four-Cheese Pizza, Php340)
I enjoyed the Four-Cheese Pizza because it has bleu cheese! How awesome is that? Perfectly paired with their Quarter Pounder with Fries!

(Small Strawberry Shake, Php75 | Big Yogurt Shake Php95)
The Yogurt Shake and Strawberry Shake are seamless thirst-quenchers.

I love ox brain—and out of all of the ox brains I’ve tried in the past, I can definitely say this is one of the best. I also have to note how amazing their hot sauce is.
(Lamb Shank, Php585)
The Lamb Shank is phenomenal. If you haven’t tasted lamb before, I suggest you make this your first try. Most lamb meats I’ve tasted in the past are either too dry or rubbery, but this one is just soft and almost melts in your mouth. I was wondering why they served the dish with a knife when you can easily pull the meat using your fork.

And now, on to the most exciting part: Jack’s Joint is having a limited time offer of Unlibabs until June 14, 2016! Their Unlimited Kebabs are priced at Php249+ for lunch (served with a cup of buttered rice) and Php279+ for dinner (served with a glass of iced tea and a cup of buttered rice)! Lunch is from 11AM-2PM, while dinner is served from 6PM-9PM. Prices are not inclusive of VAT.
I promise you: they serve some of the best kebabs in town. You might even chance upon local celebrities from a nearby TV station here, just like we did. When you drop by, make sure you don’t just indulge in their kebabs, either. Try everything on their menu like we did! You won’t regret it!
