When you say Hole in the Wall it means a small and simple establishment that is not so fancy and expensive. That is why, when I had a chance to visit Marikina City, I didn’t let the chance pass of visiting this very intriguing restaurant, the Fatdaddy’s.
Located in Marikina Heights, Fatdaddy’s is literally a “hole-in-the-wall” restaurant because it is actually the garage area of the house.
Fatdaddy’s is a pet project of the Versoza siblings after the eldest son Chef Jasper and wife went to the States for a vacation. They were driven to bring an authentic smoke-grill , Texas style barbeque in the Philippines.
It took them eight months of research and recipe testing to achieve the authentic smoke-grill taste of barbeque. And because traditional smokers are no longer available in the market, they have to create their own.
This smoker is the main secret of Fatdaddy’s best selling smoked-brisket.
Did you know that Beef Brisket is the toughest and leanest meat part of the cow?
To achieve the exact tenderness of brisket and smoke-grill taste, Texas style, Fatdaddy’s prepare their brisket by slow-smoke for 16 hours.
“The savory layer of fat actually melts in your mouth that will surely satisfy your authentic smoke-grill barbeque craving”.
This best-selling smoked brisket comes with bread or mashed potato or rice; your choice.
Another best-seller is their original recipe of smoked sausage that is crunchy outside but very tender inside.
Fatdaddy’s started marketing through paid ads for a week (Facebook) and on Instagram and have reached 70,000 likes in a span of two weeks and is now the most visited restaurant from north to south and even celebrities.
Soon, Fatdaddys will have a BGC branch along Burgos Circle to cater adventurous foodie looking for authentic smoke barbeque or meat.
