Choose your steak and eat it too! This new concept restaurant -slash- meat place is offering something different at the Poblacion area. Inspired by the love of good food and awesome drinks, a group of partners opens up this new dining experience serving up approachable cuisine that is especially appreciated by meat-lovers.

One of the highlights is where customers choose their meats from a range including prime cuts such as USDA Rib Eye, Porterhouse, Sirloin, Tenderloin, Tbone all the way to 48 hours marinated Porkchops, Pork Belly and Smoked Maple Bacon. Of course customers can have it cooked to their preferred doneness at only Php 100 cooking charge with choices of sauces and sides.

I had a chat with one of the owners, Migz del Gallego and he shared that one of the advantages of Concepto is that it can be whatever you want it to be. An events place, a restaurant or a bar, the place can be transformed to your liking. If one is planning a party and looking for something that is different or not on the menu, Concepto can customize a menu and can create a different kind of experience with their very capable chef Mikey Presa. Here are some of the food we tasting during the opening of Concepto Poblacion.

Here's the Prime Rib Eye Steak I ordered. I wasn't expecting a good turnout because I don't know, maybe I'm skeptical. To my delight, it was a damn good ribeye steak! One of the best I've had in a while. I mean for a restaurant that shows their love for meat, they have to know how to cook a good one right? That  they did. The pork chops wasn't bad either! And the desserts, man you have got to try that two desserts there, the yema sauce, ube, leche flan and brazo de mercedes in one with the mango ice cream macapuno is definitely something to order to cap the good meal you had.
The other menu items are throwbacks to their road trips, with dishes that they cooked along the way, Migz shares. The best sellers include Mikey’s Chili (8 hour simmered ground beef topped with sour cream, cheese and cilantro, with fried tortilla on the side), Roast Beef Adobo (Roasted garlic with adobo jus, served with fried potato or rice), and the Spicy Binagoongan (Sautéed with 3 kinds of chili with green mango salad and crispy wanton chips). 
The meaty menu items are meant to be enjoyed with cold drinks and savoured with the music courtesy of hot bands who has performed at Concepto such as Thyro and Yumi, Kiko Salazar, Miro Valera (of Stonefree), Kat Agarrado (of Sinosikat?), Hans Dimayuga, Jem Cubil, Ramonne, Inky de Dios and more. They also have open mic nights where you can sing your hearts out every Thursday! To add a hearty party flair, they mix it up with DJs too, with regulars JJ Saur, Marxx Monterola, Supmerman, Daxx, DJ Zelle Abella and and San Francisco DJ Steelo. Up for a chill night? They also have quiz nights every Tuesday with the winner getting a bottle free (plus bragging rights of course)!
