    Midway Grill is a homegrown American restaurant with personality. The restaurant has a 50’s diner feel, with checkered floors and photos of vintage icons in the walls. They also have an extensive menu – they serve all-day breakfast, rice plates, sizzling viands, classic Filipino favorites such as laing and dinuguan, soups and salads, sandwiches, noodles and pasta, grilled specials, and desserts.

    There are a lot of hits on Midway Grill’s menu, but the Baby Back Ribs (P199) is Midway Grill’s pride and joy. There is often a fifteen to twenty-minute wait whenever you order one of these babies, but it is worth it. The meat is very tender and tears cleanly off the bone. The taste is smoky, sweet, salty and tangy all at the same time. It’s also more lean meat than fat, which makes it such a joy to nibble.

    Breakfast lovers will enjoy The Midway Slam (P175), which consists of two large, thick pancakes with butter and light syrup, two eggs, and a choice of any two meats from ham, bacon or sausages. This is ridiculously filling and good for two if you’re not very hungry.

    For something distinctly local, the Sizzling Pulpog (149) is an original La Union dish, made with charcoal-grilled pork cutlets that are tossed with fresh onions, chili and peppers. It is a close Ilocano deviation of the sisig, and while Midway’s version is delicious, it is also very spicy – and therefore, not for the faint of heart.
