Due to overwhelming response on our facebook page to the “sneak peek” photo of Aribu’s cold cut platter we decided to release the article a month early! Thanks for your support guys!
When one speaks of cold cuts in Bacolod the average guy will think of cold cut platters in one of the Chinese restaurants with the obligatory slices of century egg.
In the same way, the average guy in Bacolod who eats sausages knows only two or three types. (Hungarian, Frankfurter and even Vienna sausage!)
For those interested in sampling various deli meats and cheese in Bacolod, Aribu nicely fills in the void. Aribu is located in the Art district in Mandalagan and they have quite a selection of deli meats,sausages and cheese.
The display cabinet in front has a selection of sausages and cheese for you to choose from.
Here’s what they have in the display case.
- Smoked Chicken Roast
- Smoked Pizza Pepperoni
- Roast Beef
- Beer Sausage
- Thuringer Bratwurst
- Gouda Cheese
- Cheese from Lola’s Garden (which we might write an article about in the future; they have a very interesting blog.)
- I totally forgot to take down the name of this cheese. Sorry guys!
They have more selections in the chillers but we opted not to individually write about them because they would eat up a lot of space so for the curious here are the contents of freezer one, two and three.
We started off with their house special appetizer which is Fried Gouda cheese. Fried gouda cheese kinda tastes like the dried-up toasted cheese you get when you toast a cheese sandwich. Very good especially on some of Aribu’s french style bread.
We also ordered double smoked bacon to go with the bread and cheese. Very good combination.
Our cold cut platter then arrived. It was good looking with a wide assortment of the available meats that they had. We noticed boxes of Eden cheese in the freezer earlier and this was the cheese that they served with the platter. We had it changed to Gouda cheese. Two days later we ordered the sausage platter (picture not shown here) and we had the Eden cheese. A fellow food Hunter; Pat then commented that she liked the Eden cheese better!
