Value for money is important to us so we listed the top 8 dishes you can share (if you’re nice) with a bunch of your friends. KKB (or Dutch Treat as the Westerners call it) of course!
Now, everyone has probably heard of Rue Bourbon at some point since year 2009 when they introduced CARAMEL beer to Manila, selling over 1M Caramel Beers at this point. With the help of partner Chef Kalel Chan, they’ve revamped their menu, and by revamp, I mean came up with a LOT of seriously gratifying and, let’s be honest, SINFUL dishes that will make you glad it’s your cheat day.
8. CRISPY CORNED SCARFACE Php790 | 4-5 PAX
Why Scarface? Because it’s literally pork face! With the part usually reserved for sisig, Rue Bourbon serves it out crispy pata style, with sriracha Mang Tomas, cilantro chili vinegar, and pickled onions to boot. Scarface is HUGE, bigger than your BIG ASS beer, and that’s saying something. It’s also already sliced up nicely so it’s easy to dig in and enjoy. Super delicious and, of course, crispy!
Crispy Corned Scarface (Php 790)
Php158 to Php197 each for 4-5 pax
7. SOUL FOOD PLATTER Php 990 | 4-6 PAX
If you’re all meat-eaters and want heavy grub, we suggest you get the Soul Food Platter because it has Juicy Ribs, Buffalo Wings, and Lechon Macau. Can you imagine all this with your beer already?
SOUL FOOD PLATTER (P990 )
Php165- Php247 each for 4-6 PAX
6. FULL SLAB BABY BACK RIBS Php999 | 5-6 PAX
They weren’t kidding when they said full slab. It can feed 4-5 people and is served with coleslaw, corn, fries, java rice, and you can choose toppings too, like chimichurri. You might want to wash your hands so you can get down and dirty with these tender, fall-off-the-bones, finger lickin’ ribs!
Baby Back Ribs (Php999)
Php167- Php199 each for 5-6 pax
5. SISIG NACHOS Php350 + PULLED PORK SLIDERS Php280 | 3-5 PAX
Everybody loves nachos, but Rue Bourbon stepped the classic up a notch by topping it with guilt-inducing sisig. It’s hard to stop munching on these! The Seven-Hour Orange Soda Pulled Pork Sliders (yep, that’s a mouthful) are perfect for those who like their meat tasty and saucy. No extra sauce needed!
Sisig Nachos Php350 | 7 Hour Orange Soda Pulled Pork Sliders Php280
Php126 – Php210 each for 3-5 pax
4. CRISPY SMOKED BACON FRIES Php280 + FOUR CHEESE PIZZA Php380 | 4-5 PAX
Yes, BACON! Nobody can resist bacon, let alone bacon with fries. Unlike most pica-pica, we suggest you eat the Crispy Smoked Bacon Fries with a spoon so you can get all the bacon and pepper gravy goodness that drips at the bottom of this plate. So from the smoked bacon, to the poached egg, and pepper gravy, you get a nice and wide range of flavors. You can pair this with the Four Cheese Pizza, a classic you can’t go wrong with and a blogger favorite.
Crispy Smoked Bacon Fries (Php 280) | Four Cheese Pizza (Php 380)
Php132-Php165 each for 4-5 pax
3. WARM APPLE PIE Php190 | 2-3 pax
Their Warm Apple Pie can be shared by 2-3 people and is one of the newest additions to the menu. The Warm Apple Pie has sweet crumbs with apple cinnamon inside and is served with vanilla ice cream. It’s good old comfort food.
Warm Apple Pie (Php190)
Php63-Php95 for 2-3 pax
2. BEER BARREL Php799 | 4-5 PAX
Of course, drinks are always in order at Rue Bourbon. If you’re into beer, like most of Manila’s population, you can never go wrong with their famous Big Ass Beer Mugs. Now, they have a Beer Barrel, which can serve up to 5 pax. You can get draft or flavored. Aside from the convenience of the keg at your table, it’s just really cool.
Beer Barrel (Php 799)
PhpP160-Php199 each for 4-5 pax
1. JESTER’S TEAPOT Php 499 | 4 PAX
If you like cocktails, you can have them in this cute teapot. You can choose from the Midori Sour, Amaretto Sour, or Mai Tai. Our personal favorite is the Amaretto—it is really good compared to most sold in bars we’ve been to. A teapot can serve up to four drinks.
Jester’s Teapot (Php 499)
Php125 each for 4 pax
