Conceptualized by Ton Gonzales, TIPSY PIG is known for its signature brews, extensive drink selection, and good food by Chef Rainier Barbers. The name is inspired by the after effects of alcohol and the food they want to be known for. This is the coolest place to hang out at Capitol Commons in Pasig.
We tried the food as recommended by the Chef and here's our experience...
TIP: Make sure to make reservations to get a space on the first floor.
TIPSY PIG MENU: Soups and Greens, Bar Chow, Pasta | Sandwiches and Bites, Big Plates and Mains | Pizza, Sides, Dessert | Tipsy Pig Signature Cocktails, Tipsy Pig Signature Brews | Whisky, Single Malt, Cognac/Brandy, Liquer, Rum, Tequila | Gin, Vodka, Champagne, Imported Beers, Local Beers, Wines, Mixers | Non-Alcoholic Beverages, Quench Carbonated Fruit Drinks, Nespresso Coffee Blends
The menu offers a good selection of bar chow and dinner food that you can share.
The signature brews are interesting but this was a bit weird...its like a dessert beer.
✮ Tipsy Wings + Flaming Wings (P295 +10% service charge). Tipsy Wings (Fried wings smothered with our homemade Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce) and The Flaming Wings (Crispy fried wings, overdose with homemade buffalo sauce and Bleu cheese dip).
We ordered the wings since we couldn't decide what to get. We got the mix of Tipsy and Flaming wings. Love the Tipsy Wings with crunchy skin and sweet BBQ sauce, but we liked it better with the blue cheese sauce of the Flaming Wings.
The Flaming wings were not as hot as I expected them to be and the taste was just OK.
The vineyard pizza is good. They use thin slices of meat with grapes, basil, and tomato. It's good while it's still hot. When it cools down the cookie-type pizza dough hardens a bit.
This was just OK. The sauce was too overpowering and it was not really that spicy.
This gets the best presentation award. I love the roasted chicken cooked with a beer can.
However, the meat of the chicken we got that night was a little bit bland and you can't taste even a hint of the beer. Maybe an off night for the kitchen.
I love Tipsy Pig's extensive list of signature brews and alcoholic drinks, their Tipsy Wings, and the Vineyard Pizza. I can see why a lot of people flock to this watering hole...it has a nice hang out ambiance, good drinks and food, and reasonable pricing.
Budget is about P700/person for drinks + food. Best to go in a group with your family or friends to hang out until the wee hours of the morning. It gets crazy packed starting at 10pm.
