Union Jack Tavern is the 4th Stop of our Westgate Food Crawl.  Not really sure if Festival Mall is still within the vicinity of West Gate though.  Anyway,  let us not worry about Geography, I'll leave it up to Google Maps to figure it out. 

I got a lil giddy when i found out that Union Jack is a pub and offers Brit Food.  Don't get me wrong my knowledge in the aforementioned cuisine starts with fish and chips and ends with meat pie.

Interior.  I ain't gonna lie,  the place looks a lil dated.  This is probably attributed to it's age.  I heard that they have been around for quite sometime.  It's not really inviting as you will be greeted by their convenience store set up at the entrance. 

The restaurant reminds me of a Western flick.  The kind that John Wayne would star in.  It is the place where he would meet someone for secret gathering of sorts. 

Drinks

| UJT Punch
| Pimms Lemonade

I am too old for cocktails but i tries em nonetheless.  The like Pimms compared to UJT.  The former tastes refreshing and light while the latter has a strong alcohol taste.

Food x Sweets

| Sticky Date Pudding.   This one tastes a lil odd.  I can't put my finger on it.  I hope this is just a bad batch.

| Steak Meat Pie
| Chicken Meat Pie

I wanted to fool my brain into thinking that the meat pies are delicious.  The influx of adjectives in my brain isnt enough to feed my confirmation bias.   Both tasted mediocre and lacks the wow factor.  Albeit the lack of flavour,  i am still thankful thay I got to try dem meat pies.  Maybe i need to try a different restaurant to better appreciate meat pies.

Two stars for the food and one star for the experience.

Before heading to another Looloo Rendezvoos event I had breakfast first to the nearby restaurant Union Jack Tavern.

Few customers were dining in the Pub, some were drinking their favorite beers too.

The service staff assisted me to my table and served me a glass of water before she asked for my order.

Corned Beef Hash for Php195.00 - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"5-10 minutes serving time. The corned beef was cooked well but you need to add salt... (medyo matabang)"

Union Jack Tavern is located at the 2nd floor of Festival Mall, Felinvest City, Alabang

Had a chance to try this last Friday in this weekends' Great British Festival in BHS. They occupy a large area by the amphitheater. Because of Marc David M's stellar review of this place located in (his words) the "god forsaken mall" that is Festival, we decided to get our favorite fish & chips and dine al fresco. They have a great view of the stage and a good band was playing live.

Served like the regular fish & chips places in the UK, they gave us our order in paper plates in a box. Not a big deal for me, as I've eaten them wrapped in newspaper overseas. The fish had a really wonderful crunch, a light batter, and the fish was very moist, cooked just right. My only complaint is that the serving size was just too small. One plate was 250 pesos for 4 skinny pieces of fish and less than a handful of chips. We ordered 2 plates.

Maybe it would be better to eat at the main restaurant. I'd go to Alabang for this.

Thank God for looloo!

We were going to meet someone at Festival Mall Alabang and the first thing that came to mind was: Is there anything worth eating at here? Puro FastFoods dito. Nawawalan na ko ng pag-asa. 128557.

looloo to the rescue!

I wouldn't have given Union Jack another look. From the outside it seems to be an English Grocery up front until you go further inside and you get taken away to an English Pub. Kinda like a rabbit hole, you get transported to a different place very far far away from Festival Mall. I was like Wow! Thank you looloo for the nearby suggestions! I can kiss you guys right now! 128536128536128536

Their menu is quite extensive. It even extends to Indian Cuisine! Took us ages to pick our orders 128514

Quesadillas - one review said this was the best but we had better and it's in Mexicali. 128513 This one's still good though and it didn't disappoint.

Spicy Tuna Pasta - just a bit spicy and a little more on the sour side of tomato marinara sauce.

Roast Beef with caramelized onions - was kinda tough on some parts, Probably because of the thick slices. Mashed potato with caramelized onions were perfect! Plus It came with a lot of Gravy! 128525

Will definitely be my tambayan if ever I find myself in this God forsaken Mall again.. 128513

5 Stars just for being the right place at the wrong neighborhood. 9996128513

I practically much, want to live here. 128525 I feel at home when I go here after a stressful day at work. Their servers are friendly and not to mention, they all are pretty good lookin' 128521 A pint of local draft beer will cost you below a hundred during their happy hour. This also is the only place I know that serves Turkey Sisig. Thumbs up!

Their bestsellers is their fish & chips but we tried their Sunday English buffet for P599 which had a small selection but really good roast beef and turkey meat! Yorkshire bread, mashed potatoes, lots of veggies, cream of mushroom soup and cheesecake, chocolate cake and apple pie (with either custard or vanilla ice cream) on top! If you like meat, it's pretty worth it for some authentic British food.

The sticky toffee pudding from their ala carte dessert menu is so thick you need to share! Also liked thhe or melon shake with milk. We only used to go here to watch sporting games but now for the food as well. Good wifi. Mostly expat clientele.

This is a very typical Britt Tavern. Good place to try some Belgian beers ( which I think are the best ) with a variety of EU made beers. They serve local food and drinks too. I always order Bishop's Finger or Stella with Fisherman's pie. Smoked Salmon platter is nice too. My hubbs always orders Bangers and Mash cleaning all his side dish of steamed veg. Try everything and pick a favorite. The waitress are friendly and sociable with nice long locks, and don't be surprised .... this joint is owned by David Charleston of David's Salon. Oh did I tell u they have game night every Wednesday. Best to call for reservation especially happy hour.

I think there's a bit of a shortage of restaurants offering good, authentic British food. So I'm delighted to have tried this gem! I enjoyed their hearty British food and would definitely come back. 128077 We got the Shepherd's Pie (P425), which was delicious, and the Roast Beef (P395). For dessert, I had to get their Lava Cake (P250). What can I say, no regrets. :)

The ambiance itself has the "British pub" feel -- dark, sports channel on the TV, a bar in the corner, and British posters and flags on the wall. though TBH, I can't really tell because I've never been in a real one haha but I'm basing this on those I've seen on TV. So far, it's close. ;)

They also offer Indian food and has English and Indian buffet during the weekends!

Definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in the South. 128077

My third time to eat here. Still the food they have never disappointed me. This time i also tried their choco mud cupcake...... It is just a bit too sweet so my friend and i were not able to finish it, or maybe we were too full already. Will surely eat here again.

Union Jack Tavern will let you discover british food. You can really feel like you are in London! I love their Sheperd's Pie. They also have nice beer selections. They also have a mini grocery with british products.
