Village Tavern: Revisiting for their First Year Anniversary Menu Additions

After my first visit at Village Tavern (see previous post), we've come back to try their new offerings as it celebrates its first year anniversary.  Since I've already share its luxurious and cozy ambiance, I hope you don't mind if I go straight to their delectable dishes.

complimentary dishes
Complimentary Nachos
Small Plates
crispy clam spicy lemon dip
Crispy Clam with Spicy Lemon Dip (375 php)
The Crispy Clam with Spicy Lemon Dip is a must try for those who love fried nibblers.  Each clam is perfectly coated in batter and enjoyably chewy and tasty.  I just love how the spicy lemon dip is able to perk it up to another level too.  This is also served with a small plate of salad.  The serving size is suggested for sharing.


roasted bone marrow
Roasted Bone Marrow (295 php)
The Roasted Bone Marrow is served with salt, sourdough, parsley and apple cider vinegar dip.  Unfortunately, all the components when eaten together with the bone marrow was still too plain for my taste buds.


fully loaded romaine heart
Fully Loaded Romaine Heart (425 php)
The Fully Loaded Romaine Heart is a delicious salad with slices of bacon strips, rd onions, tomatoes, bleu cheese chunks and bleu cheese dressing.  As a fan of bleu cheese, I am totally captivated by this salad.  The bleu cheese dressing and the bacon creates a powerful flavorful balance.

Tavern Specialties
lamb rack
Lamb Rack (675 php)
I liked how the Lamb Rack was cooked emanating with a fragrant hint of rosemary.  It was tender with a clean meaty taste.  It was laid on a bed of smooth mashed potatoes mixed with green peas and mint.

cod fish
Cod Fish (525 php)
The Cod Fish is a pan seared Atlantic cod with Spanish chorizo, caramelized garlic and onions and salted potato slices.  The mixture of flavors is superb.  However, the cod is a bit dry.  Since it's pan seared, I expected the middle part to be a bit undercooked so the fish meat would be soft and moist.

Steakhouse Steaks
tomahawk steak
Tomahawk 35 oz (2,895 php)
The Tomahawk is not new but we wanted to see the size of it for ourselves.  It is big but the taste is no different from the smaller portion of the Angus Beef Steak we tried before. 

Homemade Desserts
frozen lime souffle
Frozen Lime Souffle (295 php)
The Frozen Lime Souffle is beautifully garnished with candied lime and almond powder.

frozen lime souffle
Frozen Lime Souffle (295 php)
I was expecting a souffle to be something between cake-like and custard-like but instead, the Frozen Lime Souffle had a frozen whipped cream texture and lime sorbet at the bottom.  The cool citrus concept is a good but it felt short in delivering impact to our senses. 

village tavern drinks
Iced Coffee (120 php), Apple Carrot (150 php) and Dalandan (140 php)
Tip: They also have the Wednesday Night Out which features half off all wines by the glass as well as all cocktails and liquors. 

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
It's definitely a good move for Village Tavern to introduce new products.  I look forward to trying more of their offering in the future.  It's delicious dishes and cozy and elegant ambiance makes every meal a pleasurable one.
