After All Bar & Grill: Chill Night with Rum, Tapas and Awesome Music (SM Jazz Makati)

Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

Everything seems fast-paced except for the stressful heavy traffic.  In the busy business district of Makati, I found refuge for comfort at After All Bar & Grill.

My young apprentice has been having financial, family and health problems so  I thought I could bring him here to chill out a bit.

He shared that it was his first time ever to stop by the City of Makati.  He has passed through Makati but never actually visited it.

After All has a bar but...

that's not really what we went after.  My apprentice is a musician.  Even at his teenage years, he plays in a church band and earns a living as a guitar tutor.  After All lets guests play if they want to.  I tried to encourage my young trainee but he was too shy.

So, we just got on with the food.


Filipino Fiesta
crunchy pork sisig
Crunchy Pork Sisig (280 php)
We started off with their After All's best-seller: Crunchy Pork Sisig.  We loved this!  He even had extra rice just for this!

romanian deviled squid
Romanian Deviled Squid (210 php)
I found the Romanian Deviled Squid really interesting.  And, it was cooked perfectly tender too!

glazed balls of fire
Glazed Balls of Fire (210 php)
My favorite for the night is actually and surprisingly the Glazed Balls of Fire.  The buffalo sauce complemented the tender and succulent meat balls well.

beef salpicao
Beef Salpicao (330 php)
Now, steak lovers will surely be delighted with their Wagyu Beef Salpicao.

crispy shrimps
Crispy Shrimps (250 php)
The Crispy Shrimps is a superb beer match.

calamares fritos
Calamares Fritos (240 php)
And, last but not the least of our order is the Filipino favorite Calamares Fritos.



Calibre (150 php)

For drinks, we tried the Calibre which is Cuban libre infused with lime and sugar.  It was pretty smooth. 

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
The pricing and food quality at After All Bar & Grill has exceeded my expectation.  Being located at SM Jazz which is a highly commercial and prominent area, I expected it to be more pricey.  I also loved the ambiance with great music.  The only thing that didn't satisfy me was the service.  Albeit having a few customers, we found it difficult to call the attention of the servers.  And when I told the server that the dish was a bit rare, he didn't say anything and just went away.
