  • Ribchon in Tagaytay: Home of the Baby Back Baboy
  • Inspired by the wonders of Texas slow-cooked barbeque and the famous Filipino lechon, owners Hamm Katipunan and Chef Tristan Bayani decided to develop a unique and extremely mouth-watering food concept of lechon ribs barbeque—thus the birth of Ribchon.

    Opened in April 2019, the home of the Baby Back Baboy in Tagaytay features a barbeque masterpiece by applying the slow-cooked and smoking methods of the American barbeque to lechon, particularly the ribs. 

    The name of the restaurant was centered on the winning concept of ribs of the lechon, hence the creation of the witty name, Ribchon.

    That concept alone led them to create their flagship dish, the Baby Back Baboy. A perfect feast for two to four, it comes with a BBQ sauce, pumpkin soup, salad, and bowls of rice.

    We assure you, there is no better way to savor this sinfully delish ribs with the use of both hands!

    Another popular dish is their very own Ribchon Okoy Bites, a crispy concoction of deep-fried unshelled small shrimps folded in glutinous rice batter with various vegetables such as onion and julienned carrots.

    A dish to definitely rave for is Ribchon’s Lechon Belly served with soy sauce and gravy dip on the side. It’s really hard to resist this giant sinful slab of deep-fried lechon belly!

    Chef Tristan also formulated Ribchon’s signature sauces, the Tangled Oil, Kapeng Barako, and Spicy Vinegar, which goes well with rice. Other best-sellers include Bulaklak Brittle Basket, Batangas Bulalo, Crispy Kare-Kare, Bulalo Steak, and all-day breakfast spread.

    All their dishes are good for sharing so make sure to bring your friends with you and taste altogether the flavorful lechon entrees of Ribchon.

    The whole interior has a nice unpretentious industrial vibe to it, with a touch of red, black, and wooden elements that truly invites you to a lechon feast like no other.

    Ribchon also recently launched their new catering business called No Ribservations for those who want to have sumptuous lechon dishes served in their wedding events and other special occasions.
