Of Fried Chicken, Sandwiches , Breakfast, Burgers at BBX

There is a new kid on the block which opened last October 26 in Glorietta. Called BBX. it is the  brainchild of the group that brought us Fowl Bread,  Beefier, Bad Bird, Wrong Ramen to name a few.

Asked what  the acronym BBX means and what it is all about , here is what Eli Uy (Director for Marketing) has to say..

"BBX  is kind of like a dead acronym that has no meaning. Concept still revolves around chicken but then we have sandwiches, rice meals that are pretty cheap. Its our take on fast food..

If there are 3 key words to describe BBX, it would be Chicken-Fast-Affordable. Meals are less than P200..."


Open and casual with an order counter on the right and an open /  'show' kitchen adjacent to it.

The facade of BBX  is  predominantly black-purple-white. Interiors however are lighter and brighter with mostly pastel colors echoing all shades of purple. Check out the fun mural on  your left as you enter. Mirrors help to  create the illusion of space.

The ledge on the counter of the open kitchen serves as a  condiment-cutlery-drinking area where you can get your tissues, spoon-fork-knife, tall crystal glasses for water, ice box and sauces. I love that they even have boxes for  those who want to take out their meal


The 3 words which according to Ms. Eli Uy , perfectly describes BBX.

We enjoyed the following...

Made my day when I saw greens in their menu. This one is called Garlic Sesame Chicken Salad  P230  and a great way to start your meal. Lettuce were crisp and perfectly seasoned.
Yes aside from the main star of the show which is chicken, BBX also makes a mean burger. This one  is Cheese Burger P199. Bread was fresh, patty was meaty though a bit on the thin size. Overall a great  mouthfeel.  Beef was really flavorful and lettuce and pickles were a great addition. Felt like I was eating healthy haha

Shying away from meat? Dont fret. BBX has their  Crispy Fish Sandwich P245 to offer to you. Fish had a crunchy exterior contrasting beautifully with its flaky interior

LEA SANDWICH P159  more your cup of tea? I know this is mine.  That is Longganisa, Egg and Atchara Sandwich . The Longganisa is sweet and flat unlike the  tube-like shape we are more familiar with. This would be a perfect brunch meal.

Talk about affordable!

This Fried Chicken Plate is only P179 would you believe? You have a choice between 'safe' or spicy. Want your chicken boneless? Just add P20 and the server will bring you the boneless variant
 Remember the LEA Sandwich earlier? This one is the longsilog version.  They call it  Longganisa and Egg P229
 Spring Rolls 5 pcs P189  you like? It comes with rice and atchara. You can also order  it sans rice.

What PiggingOutOnSundays Loved

The Open Kitchen
I have a mind to remodel my kitchen echoing BBX's design. I love how the flow of activity is seamless and how organized the counter is.  No need to call the attention of the server.Everything is within reach.  Plus achieved a couple of thousand steps simply by  returning to the counter to get cutlery, napkins , glass of water, etc. They even have cute take out boxes ready just in case you want to bring home your unfinished food.

The Price
Value for money considering the quality of the food. P175 for a Fried Chicken with rice order is a steal!

The Food
Do order their cheeseburger, fried chicken meals and longganisa burger. Really good! 

Definitely returning with the handsome hubby and piggery in tow.

See you there!

BBX is located at the 2nd level of Glorietta just across Army Navy and beside Mongkok
