Black Pig is one of the 'original' restos in commercenter and I think I was one of the first to review it here on |ooloo too. The first time we went was a few years ago and they were still on soft opening. Since then their menu has really expanded but it is really quite pricey imo. The breakfast set that I had (first pic) was ₱450. It looks good in the photo but it was just okay for me. The sausage tasted like hamonado. The hash brown looked (and tasted) like the frozen ones you could get from s&r. D ko lang matanggap kse my favorite breakfast place in Essex is only £4.50, eat all you can. Tbh I had to eat the bread from the bread basket to feel satisfied 128518 my friends were raving about the food though! 🤔
The risotto that hubby and my friend had was good. I also tried this the first time I was here. My other friend had their beef lasagna which was a bit dry for me.
I think hubby and I had to shell out 1k each including the sangria I had and coffee for him.
I've always believed that food need not be expensive to be good. In this case, the food was just ok.. I feel that I expected more for the price. Am I being a cheapskate? I don't think so naman 128517 could be better and more land imo.

I was feeling a fancy dessert the other day. One cannot get any fancier than Black Pig. But I did not want to be that fancy so I pulled back a bit with my order. Given that, I ordered The Black Pig Dirty Ice Cream. It was really just for a fun and quick merienda.

I was really looking forward to my ice cream. It cost me 190 pesos to buy that dessert. The description said, “Salted Caramel, Ube, and Peanut Butter”. I was looking forward to what this dish looked like. How do you make a simple dirty ice cream fancy and elegant. The answer: rice and a bowl. Apparently that set-up would make it reasonable for them to price this at almost 63 pesos per ice cream cone. If only I could eat those rice grains just to ensure my ROI. But no, and I quickly found out that the rice tends to stick to the cone which made it difficult to eat the bottom half of my treat.

Although, I have nothing negative to say regarding the taste. It captured the three flavors perfectly. I finished all of them and was very satisfied afterwards. Will probably not order it again, but am very happy I ordered it at least once in my life.

Oh and of course, great service as usual.

That’s it for now. Take care everyone!

Before going to Black Pig, I already had a bit of coffee somewhere and dinner somewhere else (check my previous posts!). I was honestly full. Unfortunately, my girlfriend and I had a movie to go to in two hours. So in order to kill a bit more time, we chose this place to chill and … drink some wine.

We were immediately given the dinner menu. We asked for the wine list, and they gave us another menu. I then asked where their desserts were, and again the server gave me another menu. Three menus in thirty seconds, that has to be a record. They had so many menus available. It was crazy, and a bit confusing. Anyway, we got two 175 milliliter glasses of white wine (my apologies, I forgot which one we got). Each glass was worth two hundred and ninety (290) pesos. Not bad but I wish I just ordered the 100 milliliter option.

For the desserts, we got the Lemon Cake. It costs one hundred and ninety (190) pesos, and although it looks small, it more than makes up for the amount/ serving size in flavor and texture. It has vanilla parfait, lemon curd, lemongrass granite, and black pepper meringue. Together they offered a great and diverse taste. The cake itself has coconut, I believe.

That’s it for now. Take care everyone!

Seriously now, guys i think The Black Pig has been waaayyyyyy too overlooked as a breakfast destination. Just take a look at these pictures! That plating, my goodness! I think these shots pretty much speak for themselves and sum up how beautiful the breakfast selection is at The Black Pig.

And they don't just look pretty, they taste great too! In terms of price, most of the items don't go above P500 and average within the P250-P350 range. Not bad at all!!!

I could really sense that a lot of attention to detail was placed in the presentation, ingredients, and overall quality of the dishes. Nothing, absolutely nothing, came out haphazard. When I ordered and thought I knew what sort of waffle, egg, and sausage breakfast would be served... wow, was I in for a surprise or what.

They've got something for about everyone on their breakfast menu: savory, sweet, healthy, pork, pastry... you name it! Breakfast starts at 8am and ends at 11am Tue-Sun. This is one relatively unknown morning gem i'd highly recommend!

Celebrated my 20th birthday here with family. Everything was great! Service was impeccable and the food was delicious.

Honestly expected servings to be on the small side, but they were huge. Great value for money. We ordered the Pork Collar Char Siu as a starter and had the Black Pig Charcuterie Board, as well. It was a good selection of meats, and we paired it with a pitcher of sangria to share. My brother ordered the Pork Belly, which was lovely. Tender and flavourful pork. I had the Striploin, which was great too. We also ordered the shrimp risotto, which tasted like the ocean haha. They surprised me with a chocolate hazelnut praline at the end of the meal.

The place is real pretty too! And they serve breakfast now!!!! Definitely coming back for that and their tasting menu.

Celebrated by Lola's 91st birthday here with my family! We were ~25, but we were all seated in a spacious, private-ish section of the restaurant.

I'm not sure of the names of most of the dishes we got since my Tita ordered in advanced, but here are my best takes on them -

Bread Basket: I think I'm notorious for my bread obsession. They served focaccia, a pandesal-like type, and a harder, complex-looking bread. I filled myself up on these cause they were that good. My table even got an extra one.
Organic Garden Salad: I loved this, and even my cousins that are anti-veggies seemed to enjoy (or at least, were able to swallow without puking) this! We had it with chicken, but you can also ask for shrimp!
Chickpea Biegnet and Mustard: If French fries and popcorn made a baby, it would be this.
The Black Pig Charcuterie Board: I felt very fancy eating this haha the components on their own are great, but when you eat them all together, it's a whole different story!
Mushroom Risotto: Not too fond of very creamy risottos, but this was an exception. But it did have an umay factor.
Slow Cooked Pork Belly: I don't normally like pork, so I was wary of this dish. But of course, The Black Pig would have excellent pork. The day was very melt in your mouth in ways that would make Gordon Ramsay proud.
Braided Ox Cheeks: First question: which cheeks of the Ox did they use?! 127825 HAHAHA kidding aside, I highly recommend this.
Rack of Lamb: My favorite for the afternoon! Fork tender goodness. I can't even.
I'd skip the dessert here though.. They're good naman, but maybe I wasn't able to enjoy it as much because I was stuffed 128514128514128514

Went a little fine dining with my family for my brother's birthday. The prices are pretty steep but you do get what you pay for from the ambience, to the service, and of course the quality of the food.

Wasn't able to do my "due diligence" and research what to order beforehand, so I wasn't sure if we ordered the right must-have's that evening.128513 Regardless, we still thoroughly enjoyed everything! You could really taste and see the amount of preparation put into each dish, but what I have to highlight is their pork belly. That is in a class of its own. The flavor and tenderness of the meat is something that The Black Pig pulled off really well. 128077

Love the ambience of the place. I was actually surprised that it's "hidden" in the Commercenter. Anyways, the servers are all nice. They made sure our needs are well attended to.

Now, about the food. We had Lamb Leg, Pork Belly, and Shrimp Risotto. I loved the lamb! It was so tender, the fork was enough to slice it. The risotto was good too but i didn't taste the chili. As for the pork belly, my friend liked it. I just ate the meat, and he took all the fat. 128584128514

We ha craft beers too. I just forgot their brands, but they tasted great. 1285139996

Power dinner with our company's prime movers and shakers! After a long day of planning, we took over Black Pig to sample their offers and down 2 bottles of 12 year old Glenlivet. My favorites among our orders were the Iberico Ham and Pork Belly.

I loved the salty flavor of the ham. I think the thinly sliced servings are key to this. It tempers the salt and also makes the ham easier to chew. I loved how the ham retains a perfect balance of dry and moist. Pair this with bread and you've got yourself a winner!

The Pork Belly is a masterpiece by itself. Definitely larger than what I am used to. Presentation makes it even more appetizing. The skin is crisp and crunchy while the meat is soft and tender. No need to add any sauce or dip as the dish is already chock full of flavor.

There were about 25 of us in this group so things were a wee bit noisy. No problem though for Black Pig because they seated us in an area that was easily converted into a private room. We had ample wait staff who were certainly attentive and friendly.

Nice experience overall!

PS. This is my first review with |looloo android and it's as good as its iOS cousin or even slightly better -- I didnt have to deal with the white space when I posted the pic! Good job Peanut D Roegan T Odell R! 128522128522128522

PPS. Thanks Neil R for the Fuzel tip. I used it for this review. 128513

The Black Pig is great! They serve you delicious food though it comes with a hefty price. For lunch, they have set meals that include salad, soup, main dish, dessert, and drinks (bottom photo). But you can also opt to just buy the main dish. Their food is good and their mashed potato is exceptionally amazing if you're into the creamy-milky taste of mashed potato. Downside is you'd think the serving is too minute. If you're hungry, this probably won't be the best place for you. It's just enough to fill your stomach for a little while.

Cozy place for "catching-up" session with friends. Not too crowded.

Great service 128077

Food "must-try": salmon 128077, prawn risotto, chocolate praline (divine) sangria, pork crackling (aka chicharon 128541). Nice food presentations.

Have you lost your hype? The place isn't as full anymore. Though this is just my second time here, I recall that there was a lot of talk about this restaurant for quite some time.

Holidays are spent eating with family. Mine seem to want to eat out during the holidays. My mom keeps asking me where to eat when she has the picky palate. I suggested TBP since it's a charcuterie. Nothing that cholesterol medicine can't fix for both her and my dad.

We ordered the charcuterie board. An array of five different kinds of meat of which I don't remember the names to. My friend Nico would kill me if I released this as he is a meat and tapas fan. The slices were thin and they melted in your mouth. Of this were paired with some wine and cheese, it would have been a perfect dining experience if you were out with friends. However, I was with my parents which brought us to order more food.

The terrine we found at the menu board was something my mother enjoyed. It reminded her of the pate sandwiches in Paris where they generously applied it. Am glad I suggested for her to read the specials.

But this wasn't enough to satisfy my dad's hunger. We had ordered the confit of seared tuna and the shrimp risotto to share. Without my brother in tow, my dad and I toasted to their draft beer. Pretty good I must say. I was surprised by the salad that came with the seared tuna, it paired very well with the tuna that it opened up your senses. The prawn risotto was also creamy without the potency of the prawn overpowering the rest of the dish where you'd want to put your fork down.

The resto gave us a free appetizer that tasted like the local 'pilipit' but on a much softer level. They also gave us free dessert in the form of ube marshmallows. Given the freebies, the food is still quite expensive. It seemed like we spent P1,000 per head or maybe close to that. I did enjoy what we ordered this time. I know I mentioned trying their cheese board or platter, but I just don't find that it will be worth your money. I'd want to do this at Terry's or prolly my house. Oh well! There are more places to try at commercenter.
