McRib finally lands on Philippine shores for a limited time only

It was almost the stuff of McDonalds legends. An elusive sandwich we used to see only in the photos of friends dining at McDonalds in some other country.

The combination of Pork + Barbecue Sauce+ Pickles sandwiched in an elongated bun. The McRibs.

Developed by McDonald’s first Executive Chef Rene Arend, who also invented the Chicken McNuggets in 1979. the McRib  made its debut in the U.S. in 1981, which coincidentally was also the same year when McDonalds first opened its Philippine store.

And now after more than 30 years the elusive McRib finally lands on Philippine shores!

When it comes to food, people have different opinions on their taste preference. Ranging from salty and spicy to sweet and sour, complementing flavors that tickle the taste buds. But when it comes to barbecue, Pinoys all want it the same way – sweet, smoky and generous with the sauce.

A well-loved and highly-anticipated product in other countries, McRib is now made available for the first time in the Philippines for a limited time only to satisfy one’s barbecue cravings with its juicy, rib-shaped pork patty dipped in sweet, tangy and smoky barbecue sauce, topped with pickle slices and slivered onions, sandwiched between two warm caramelized buns.

Available at an a la carte price of only PHP 99, the new McRib will offer McDonald’s customers a flavorful burger experience that’s sure to leave them drooling for its lip-smacking barbecue goodness.

“McDonald’s is excited to introduce the McRib sandwich in the Philippines. We remain committed to surprising and delighting our customers with a variety of delicious meals made with high-quality ingredients at great value. The McRib is all that and more – it is a delicious food experience one should enjoy while it lasts,” said McDonald’s Philippines Senior Vice President for Marketing Margot Torres.

For those who prefer the added texture of vegetables in their sandwich, customers can also enjoy the new McRib Deluxe. Made with the same tender pork patty, tasty barbecue sauce and soft buns, the McRib Deluxe replaces the pickles and onions with fresh crisp lettuce and creamy mayonnaise for PHP 119 a la carte.

Try the McRib and McRib Deluxe with McDonald’s World Famous French Fries and drinks today and enjoy a delicious meal that’s dripping with flavor.

Don’t miss out on this limited-time offer! The McRib is available in all McDonald’s stores nationwide via Dine-In, Take-Out, Drive-Thru and McDelivery via the McDo App, 86-2-36, and
