$55 beers and $299 ribs.  Let’s put it in perspective.  $299 is $40 USD, for one rack of pork ribs or one beef rib.  Fries and Coleslaw are separate add-ons.  You have three options for beer, all of the craft variety but no black beers.  The point of serving beer is to price is low enough for diners to binge drink.  At $55, everyone will order one to try it out and go next door to the 7-11 for the beverage needs.  There’s Tramline and GOV in Kennedy Town for your craft beer needs.

Ribcage’s pork ribs

Pork ribs were dry but $299.  Open Rice reviews for this restaurant are quite stellar so my stomach was ready.

Fries are cooked in beef fat.  Distinct taste, quick way to a heart attack.

Ribcage beef ribs

Beef ribs were tender and moist but $299.  Too expensive.

Ribcage Coleslaw

Food is served take-out style.  Pay first at a sit down restaurant? Am I a thief as soon as I step through the door?  If I pay first, my food will need to be ready on payment yet there’s a noticeable delay in food delivery.  Ribcage charges fine dining pricing.  I left hungry.  I did not need to wear sweatpants afterall.  I had to cut my losses after ordering everything off the menu to take my appetite somewhere else.  I had high hopes for this restaurant but sadly ribs is not something I crave.  Fried Chicken and Mexican Food, yup.  Ribcage – decent food at a exorbitant price, best to start the count down to see how long they can withstand the crushing rents.  I give it 6 months.

Ribcage substitute to put my mind at ease.  Salad from K-town’s best Chicken Pot hawker fare.  $88, yes please.
