Have you heard? Tipsy Pig has new additions to their menu!
I’ve been hearing about this gastropub for quite some time now, but this is the first time that I’ve actually been able to try their dishes. As I was browsing through their menu, I noticed that most of their offerings are Filipino dishes with a twist. I was excited to try something comforting yet new. And boy, Tipsy Pig did not disappoint as they are more than your typical gastropub. They have a wide selection for a lunch out or a dinner date.
Here are their newest dishes:
Vietnamese Salad (Php220)
This salad has cabbage, fried wonton, fish sauce, and lemon sauce. The lemon sauce perfectly balances out the saltiness of the fish sauce. I particularly love how it doesn’t have too many things going on, so I could appreciate the lightness of the dish all the more. It’s perfect as a pre-meal dish.
This might look like soup, but I had this as my ‘ulam’ anyway. I am a huge fan of Ginataang Kalabasa, but this takes that simple dish a notch higher. Made with squash, coconut cream, and shrimp, what makes this dish special is how they replace the typical sitaw (string beans) with spinach instead. I paired this with rice and I couldn’t stop eating it!
Ginataang Munggo with Tinapa Rice (Php320)
I’m not a huge fan of regular munggo, but Tipsy Pig has their own comfort food version of this home staple using coconut cream and lechon kawali. Their tinapa rice is the perfect partner for this! Don’t miss out!
Tipsy Sisig (Php360)
This is the must-have during your drinking sessions. Tipsy Sisig is made with bagnet, calamnasi aioli, poached egg, and pork floss. I love how they use bagnet in their sisig. It delivers the perfect crunch that I look for when I eat sisig.
Hoisin Pizza (Php450)
Here’s another personal favorite. Their Hoisin Pizza has perfectly made thin-crusted dough topped with crispy chicken skin, green onions, hoisin, and soy chicken. I love how it has a balanced flavor of sweet and salty without overwhelming the tastebuds.
Pan Seared Pampano (Php1,150)
The group’s favorite dish was their Pan Seared Pampano, though. I love how the fish is well-cooked and flavorful. Since the fish is huge, it is actually enough to feed a group of 4 or 5 people. What I love the most about this dish is how they serve it with pressed calamansi – simple yet delightful.
After my first visit to Tipsy Pig, I’m pretty sure that I’ll be coming back to try out more from their menu. Whether to hang out with friends, celebrate a milestone with my family, or simply have a dinner date; this gastropub will be on top of my mind now.
