Bubi's Awesome Eats—to be highlighted by Food Network's upcoming winter show You Gotta Eat Here! as one of the best local eateries—silences growling stomachs with more than 100 menu items, including garlic-infused edibles, slow marinated ribs, and house-made desserts. Dining companions who choose the ribs dinner option share a Russian peanuts appetizer of signature deep-fried whole garlic cloves and use the provided pita bread to weave a bassinet for each morsel. For the aptly named "soul ribs," chefs slowly marinate full racks in fresh garlic and special seasoning before smoking the meat with hickory wood and sending the entrees tableside, where palates slurp up Bubi's own barbecue sauce in each bite with a side choice of fries, soup, or salad. Meals reach their apex as forks help delectable slices of velvety house-made cheesecake meet their mouth-bound destinies. Other menu items span an edible spectrum of burgers such as the Baja slathered with cream cheese, guacamole, and salsa ($10.49) and worldly options such as coconut curry Thai chicken ($15.99).
Patrons enter Bubi's, a 26-year-old establishment that began in the owner's grandmother's kitchen, to discover eclectic decor and a full staff of quirky personalities that serve up the restaurant's tasty edibles. A fireplace warms the restaurant during winter, and free WiFi delivers guests important business emails and blog posts from their pet goldfish.
Bubi’s Awesome Eats
If Bubi’s Awesome Eats were a planet, Bubi sauce would be its sun. Nearly every dish on the menu dons generous dollops of the garlicky housemade condiment. Chefs serve it with sweet-potato fries, drizzle it on wraps, and slather it on hamburger buns. The sauce’s coveted, taste-bud-wooing recipe is one of the reasons Bubi’s Awesome Eats earned screen time on the Food Network's You Gotta Eat Here! in 2012.
Bubi’s chefs continue the theme of made-from-scratch cooking throughout their menu, which includes tenderized chicken breast that they marinate in milk and eggs, bake with housemade garlic butter, and then deep-fry to a crisp. They also hand shape hamburger patties before accessorizing them with off-the-wall ingredients such as almond pesto and gravy. Diners in search of a burger large enough to dress in baby clothes can behold Bubi’s 8-pound Big V8 burger. If they can eat the entire burger in one sitting, they not only win bragging rights, but also $1,000. Be warned: not even Canada’s tallest man could finish it.
