Village Tavern: The Place for Good American Dishes

I've been venturing the Bonifacio High Street Central restaurants one at a time due to budget restraints.  So when my friends at The Foodies Circle decided to dine at Village Tavern, I was overwhelmed with excitement.

The Village Tavern is another restaurant belonging to the Bistro Group.  Whatever visualization you have of a tavern, I'm sure the Village Tavern is much more sophisticate and extravagant than that.  It has beautiful chandeliers, a luxurious bar, an extensive wine collection, velvet lofts and well cushioned leatherette seats.

The walls are beautifully painted and the booths offer privacy perfect for any meeting.  Other than for food, our group intnded our visit to be a dinner meeting for our first ever out-of-town trip.  We also have not seen each other for more than a month so we were all laid back and chatting the night away due to the cozy atmosphere of Village Tavern.


Small Plates
sesame teriyaki chicken wings
♥ Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Wings (225 php)
We started of with the Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Wings.  It reminds me of buffalo wings.  But, this is better because it has some sweetness from the teriyaki sauce and fragrant sesame flavor.  

fully loaded sweet potato skins
Fully-Loaded Sweet Potato Skins (240 php)
My family loves sweet potatoes.  At home, my mom just boils them and my family would enjoy them.  But, it was not the same case for me.  I only like sweet potatoes when fried in fries.  Yet, to my surprise, I loved the  Fully-Loaded Sweet Potato Skins.  It was just so flavorful with the natural sweetness of the potatoes, more sweetness and sourness from the jalapenos, savory bacon and rich cream cheese.  The sweet potato skins were so crunchy too that it completes the whole experience.  Although this is really heavy, I just couldn't stop myself from munching on these.

homemade jalapeno poppers
♥ Homemade Jalapeno Poppers (290 php)
I love the Homemade Jalapeno Poppers.  It had a perfect crunchy breaded-crust filled with cheese and spicy and tangy jalapenos.  It gets better when dipped in the sauce too.

black pizza
Black Pizza (395 php)
The Black Pizza has squid in on its though for coloring.  It is topped with parmesan, gruyere, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers and onions.  Except for the edges, I could hardly taste the squid ink.  But, its still a nice experience since I've never eaten a Black Pizza before.

forest pizza
♥ Forest Pizza (475 php)
The Forest Pizza is a sensational pizza to remember.  It has asiago cream, wild mushrooms, walnuts, mozzarella, parmesan cheese and truffle oil.  This pizza is full of delightful scents and flavors that will surely delight ones tastebuds.

Burgers & Sandwiches
cowboy burger
Cowboy Burger (595 php)
The Cowboy Burger has a thick beef patty, apple-wood smoked bacons, oozing cheddar cheese, caramelized onions and barbecue sauce.  This is a wholesome burger that's sweet and meaty.  I also loved the sweet potato fries that's served with it.

Steak House

♥ Black Angus Beef Steak
  • Marinated Flank Steak 8 oz (895 php)
  • Ribeye 8 oz (1,395 php)
  • Fillet Mignon 8 oz (1,450 php)
  • Ribeye 12 oz (1,950 php)
  • New York Strip 12 oz (1,995 php)

Their Black Angus Beef Steak is aged, hand-cut and grilled to the perfect temperature which make it tender and succelent.  Although I prefer my steak medium and this was cooked well-done, I was still able to appreciate the flavors and juices from the Black Angus Beef Steak.  

If you haven't tried this or want to try it again, now is the best time to avail because there is an ongoing promo called "The Great Steakoutwhich offers their steaks at 40% OFF from October 19, 2012 onwards, Fridays to Sundays, until supplies last.

texas baby back ribs
♥ Texas Baby Back Ribs (P650-half)
The Texas Baby Back Ribs is unlike the usual because it has a cola and chiptotle glaze.  It has this slight taste of caramel and pleasant tinge of acidity.  The meat is also soft and easy to eat.  

Homemade Desserts
very best carrot cake
Very Best Carrot Cake (345 php)
The Very Best Carrot Cake is a huge piece of carrot cake drenched in sweet cream cheese sauce.  The carrot cake itself is moist and tasty on its own.  Together with the sauce, it is a great meal-ender that is best shared among your companions.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Village Tavern is a great place for good American Dishes.  They have their own special way with their dishes that makes them worth the try even if the price is quite expensive.  The ambiance is superb so its impressive for any gatherings.
