Came back.
Missed the ribs.
But I ordered the US prime roast beef belly.
Its a third the size of their jack & come bbq ribs (airfare baby).
It was soooo tender the meat could hardly stay up.
Now, my palate is hardly what you’d call refined, but even this novice gourmand can taste the difference in that meat.
CLEAN.
It wasthe weekend so I had to indulge with garlic rice. Their garlic rice is fried with crunchy bit of garlic, the way it should be. Not just sprinkled with garlic bits on top.
I wish it came with mooooore gravy though, because it was good!

The food, delivers.
My least favorite was the buffalo chicken wings, only because I’m not big on white meat (also, I may have eaten way too many already before I even decided to order eat). It was tender inside, but was really crisp. It tasted like any other good crispy wings. Its supposed to be smothered with the sauce but I asked they put in on the side.
Then the pasta - Spicy shrimp cannelloni - was soooo good! Just enough mix of creaminess and spice! One may have to look for the shrimp, only because they mixed it in the sauce. Salivatiously yum.
NOW, THE RIBS. The RIBS. Jack & coke marinade. Not too sweet - the way I like it. Really tender meat. HUGE SERVING, I was so so pleased. Two people can comfortably share. I sure hope this is the usual size they serve, because I cant wait to order again! Please!
Highly RECOMMENDED!
Not a budget conscious place, but the Pasta and some bar chows are manageable.
No wonder they have looong wait lines during weekend nights.

PLACE:

If you want a drinking sesh with friend yet you would still be able to chat and hear each other then this place is quite a good one for you. Comfort rooms are clean and there's enough tissue which is a good thing.

DRINKS:

Drinks are quite pricey so I suggest that if you're a heavy drinker or if you have a huge group of friends, you should better opt for big bottles than solo drinks instead.

MUSIC:

Music was very lively and timely. They do also play 90s music.

CROWD:

Crowd's okay. No Jej or whatever. You get to bond with your friends more.

STAFF:

Friendly and accomodating

After a super filling dinner at Locavore, the eight of us trudged to Tipsy Pig for drinks. Since some were smokers, we stayed outside and took the table by the fan.

What else would we order but the Salted Caramel beer, right? Five girls went for the flavored beer while three guys stuck to regular beer. Fine, super dry. Still corny if you have a flavored option if you ask me. That's what I love about being a girl in a bar-- no problem if you want to order alcopop or cutesy cocktails that have more sugar than alcohol. I finished a piglet (400ml) of Salted caramel beer by myself. I would have attempted the tipsy (1000ml) if it weren't a weeknight and adulting had to commence in a few hours. No food orders for the group who gorged themselves with sisig and aligue at the previous stop.

Though I did like their SC beer, I honestly prefer Rue Bourbon's caramel beer... Oh, they have a funny server!128515

This review is all about their customer service only coz we never got the chance to dine in. It was a rainy evening and we literally search for the place since we've been reading a lot of good reviews about their food. When we arrived at the entrance the place was jammed pack the security guard went to us outside and said the we have to wait. They didn't bother to give us seats while waiting, so we just waited outside. Few more minutes (more than 6 mins) we noticed that they (guard and the waiters) are looking at us and we we're like there standing and they didn't even bother to attend to us. We decided to walk out of the resto pub and they are just looking at us ( who cares, we're just a potential customers). @tipsypig

Few close friends and I were here 12am today for a salubong.

We ordered their best-selling Dirty Mexicana. Super good nachos plus beef strips and loads of cheese! But my no. 1 favorite here is their Tokwa't Baboy Three Way. Super deicious!!! I kid you not.

P.S. They still serve Salted Caramel, Green Apple, and Raspberry beers here in big beer glasses (1L). 127867

Was a little disappointed.
Had late lunch w a colleague and we ordered the ft:

Sisig tacos had it before and I thought it was great. This time it wasn't as good as before.
Chicken chimichangas: not bad
Sisig pork pizza. Too much mayo and onions and hardly any meat. Not my type. Sorry. Hope the kitchen was having a bad day

Ola! 128131
Tipsy Pig is one of the hottest restaurants in metro right now. It's becoming a favorite hangout place of many and have been raved by a lot of bloggers. Got really curious on what they offer so I recommended it to my friends for a night gathering.

Before I speak about their food, let me tell you that the ambiance of the restaurant looks like the perfect tambayan to me. Chill And Hiphop Music, Mood Lighting, Beers and Bar, a nice place to do a reunion and hang outs. Chill vibe!

Now let's move on to their food. We ordered the ff and more, but I was only able to try the one i'm posting here:

128055 THE YELLOW SUBMARINE P550
One of a kind burger that swims in a hot cheesy sauce with bacon bits and caramelized onions

Can you see that burger skinny dipping on a pool pf cheesy sauce? Grabe! It's literally drowning in cheese with a thin consistency. Masarap siya. Gusto kong higupin yung cheese na parang soup. Haha! I tried dipping the burger to the cheese sauce and I just had to close my eyes cause it really tasted good. Pangit lang talaga pagkaluto sa patty. Slightly overcooked so matigas siya. Kung hindi lang ako addicted sa cheese, I won't recommend this burger.

128055TIPSY'S BLENDED MUSHROOM P150
Blended White Mushrooms, Fresh Thyme and Herbed Croutons

I've been on a hunt for the best mushroom soup since I feel inlove with it. It's my favorite soup haha! I can say papasa to sa Top 10 best that i've tried.

-----------Now let me separate these three pork based viands. Haha! Medyo bad move kami ng friend ko dito since were craving for crispy pata lahat ng makita naming mukang crispy yung skin inorder namin. DEADLY! 128513----------------

128055 TIPSY'S BONELESS CRISPY PATA P770
Boneless Crispy Pata, Fried Garlic Chips, Asian Sou Garlic and Homemade Dipping Sauce

OMYGOD! As in ang sarap ng crispy pata! Hahaha! Though, I can't fully differentiate it with other crispy patas except for the dipping sauce. Usually this is paired with suka mixed with toyo and calamansi. But this time it's a sweet sauce. Not bad ah! Still impressed that it had the contrast that I was looking for. The meat is tender and the serving is big good for 3-5pax na!

128055CRISPY PORK BELLY ROAST P430
Tipsy's version of Lechon Kawali served with spicy Hoisin Sauce

While eating this, we all stared each other wondering why we ordered another fatty food. Haha! Didn't eat a lot though I liked how crispy the skin were. Hoisin sauce made it taste better pampaalis ng umay.

128055PULLING ME CRISPY P430
Pulled Pork Lechon vs Some Crispy Lechon Belly Served with French Beans, White Rice and Lechon Sauce

Nothing special except for the Pulled Pork Lechon. This is something new to me. The pulled pork lechon tasted sweet and salty bagay na bagay sa rice!

----------

128055KESONG PUTI PASTA P365
Fusilli pasta on a kesong puti cream sauce topped with prosciutto, asparagus and crumbled kesong puti

127837 One of my favorites. Ito yata yung marami akong nakain aside from the Crispy Pata. Best seller rin nila so worth trying! Naamaze ako sa Kesong Puti! I thought this dish would be too salty or taste like carbonara lang but it is different. The kesong puti bits made it even better! The more you eat the more you love ang peg!

Overall Rating: 4.5/511088
Worth going back for. They have to many dishes too offer it makes me want to try them all. Wasn't able to drink beer dahil nabusog nalang ako sa kakakain haha! But they really have good variety of drinks and mostly bagay sa beer especially yung Crispy Pata na For The Win!
Pricey lang talaga dito so its recommended to bring friends with you. Besides, good food is better with good company!!!

Spent my wednesday night with my girlfriends. We head over to Tipsy Pig Fort. We're one of the earliest to arrive. 128514 #TitasOfManila Since we're starving, we ordered immediately.

•Triple Cheese Fries - P290 This is so yummy! My favorite from all the food. It includes crispy bbq fries coated with cheeses, bacon bits on a tortilla bowl

•Crispa Pizza - P420 Roasted garlic spread with crispy pork belly, topped with bacon and garlic soy. It's also a must! The pork belly made a great toppings!

•The Triple Chop - P310 Grilled bone in pork chop, apple chutney, cherry and Tipsy Pig's mashed potato. The pork was really tasty! It could be better f they have special sauce, cause they only served gravy.

•Bacardi Mojito - P170/glass
•Frozen Margarita - P170/glass

I noticed that some of the staff were not so accommodating. They dont even smile at all and as if they dont wanna assist us. So customer service is not so good.

They dont play loud music on Wednesdays, I think. They played old love songs 128514 Good thing we didnt fall asleep. It must have been the mojito! 128513

Nevertheless, we enjoyed the food and drinks! It was a rainy night and it's a perfect place to chill. 127864

Tipsy Pig's opening in Forbes Town area certainly created a renewed surge of interest in this area since its opening late 2015.  It followed after the likes of Reserve (Burgos Circle nearby) and even the classic Watering Hole (formerly of EDSA Shangri-la) opened in 2015, adding to the Big Bad Wolf, Bugsy's which are more resto bars, though of differing food styles, price range and therefore target consumers.  As a newly transferred resident in the area, it did affect my ability to double park in front of our local supermarket, Robinsons Selections, to do quick grocery shopping; but on a positive note, the night life couldn't be more lively with the addition of (possibly) the strongest place in Capitol Commons, Pasig/Ortigas (B Dubs, aka Buffalo Wild Wings notwithstanding). This 2016, the likes of Atelier Vivanda, Coco Ichibanya, Wagyu (from Makati Cinema area) opened beside Tipsy Pig (and coming soon is Bondi & Bourke).

On a Sunday evening, after mass, my wife and I did an impromptu dinner date with our doggie, Annika.  I checked out Tipsy Pig's menu, and was amazed by its creativity (Kesong Poutine certainly stands out).  There seems to be a twist to the usual fare, and I liked it.  It was tough to choose.  But we eventually settled on the appetizer Crispy Shrimp in Salted Egg salad.  At under P500, it was quite a lot in quantity so seems appropriately priced.  There were easily a dozen medium sized shrimp, so it was a good value to money deal, considering the restaurant.  The crunch was due to the batter applied to the peeled shrimp (the only thing remaining was the tail), then the salted egg salad was applied on top.  It was quite good, the flavorful salted egg was there, which is a flavor I've come to appreciate, especially when paired with shrimp and other seafood.  (Think the likes of King Bee, Peking Garden, Gloria Maris ;p)  Perhaps the only minor minor comment is that the yolk wasn't generous enough.  But it's a personal preference.  Good "new" alternative appetizer (I don't see it in the looloo or other online menus of Tipsy Pig, so it's good that they refresh their menu items) or, in our case, main dish. Taste-wise, it's about a 3.5, but with the quantity, it goes up to a 4 star rating. Verdict: 4/5

The other dish we ordered was their Grilled Salmon Steak.  We picked the Penne Carbonara as the side instead of the mashed potatoes.  The plating was pretty good, the salmon being the obvious star of the dish, but when we bit into the penne, it was TOO AL DENTE for our taste, and asked the waiter to leave the salmon and take the pasta back.  Also asked to add more cream.  The pasta was returned perhaps about 8 to 10 minutes later, when our salmon was halfway done.  The salmon was well done, so between moist and dry, but the flavor of the salmon came through, complemented by the cream and pesto sauce they put on top.  Decent tasting, nothing over the top.  -0.5 for the wrong cook on the pasta.  Verdict: 3.5/5  (I prefer my salmon with a creamier and generous topping--- think Conti's)

We also ordered their flavored beer, supposedly their best selling beer according to the waiter (I'm betting it's still San Mig Light, though).  The green apple had a hint of the flavor, but it was served not too cold.  At best, a 3 star rating.  The lack of cold temp certainly did the beer in, but even at that temperature, you'd expect the flavor to come out more, but it's still largely beer tasting and less flavored beer.  I tasted the wife's salted caramel and noted the same.  Too subtle. Verdict: 3/5

The first order came in about 20-25 minutes from when we ordered, which was not good.  We were seated outside and they didn't have enough blowers to make the experience suitable.  We sat outside because we had our dog, di ba?  Can't sit inside unfortunately.  It didn't compare well to our experience the previous evening in Locavore where, even if we sat outside, the resto put in plenty of fans to make things tolerable and breezy even.  Plus I couldn't put my finger to it, but the waiters were there but not consistently attentive.  So service would be at an average score at best.  Service Rating: 2.5/5  

Overall, the place looks amazing, I understand why people would want to hang out here.  For both its food and bar, plus ambiance, I see Tipsy Pig being successful in the next few years.  Plus the newly sprouted restos in the vicinity of Tipsy Pig are more restaurants than bars so it won't likely be affected.  Obviously, we tried it for the restaurant portion, but it promises to be a fun hangout for you and your friends.  They do accept reservations, with preassigned time slots, so best to call ahead.

First time here in TP. I enjoyed going around Burgos Circle coz the last time I came here was when hubs and I tried Wrong Ramen.

The Bar was full, inside and out but since there were just two of us, we got a seat instantly.

On the picture is this Chicken Twister! Oh I didn't expect this to be sooo good! The filling is very rewarding, the white sauce and tomato salad helps bring out the goodness of each ingredient...Chicken chunks are deliciously crispy and flavorful. I really like the thin Flour Tortilla they used. Overall, I honestly enjoyed it better than Halal Sandwich! 128540

Belly good sisig tacos (P280) was belly good! It was crunchy because of the chicharon, the sweet sauce was very tasty and it went well with the tacos. This is one of their bestsellers and it's a highly recommended dish.

Pulled pork bbq pizza (P360) was just ok. I found it a bit sweet and was nakakaumay. We just ordered it bc we wanted to know how tipsy pig's pulled pork is like. I don't think this is their best pizza. You won't like it especially if you don't like sweet food.

Pulled pork jack bbq sliders (P390) was also just ok. we chose the wrong combination of dishes to order. I guess that's why we're not too happy with this one. It's somewhat like the pizza except this came in buns. There's nothing extraordinary about this dish.

Strawberry cheesecake (P220) we liked it and it was just right for 3 people to share :>

Tipsy128055 has a wide variety of dishes. The set of dishes we ordered was not their best combination 128517

Rigatoni Pasta with Spicy Shrimp (P260)

I found this dish super sulit because of 2 main reasons: (1) the pasta had a generous amt of Shrimp - di tinipid, (2) the pasta was al dente (just how I like it to be) so it really went well with the sauce 10024

I found other interesting dishes on their menu and I'm looking forward to trying it the next time I go back. I'm specifically eyeing on that Belly Good Sisig Tacos 128069
