Let's admit it, we, Filipinos love to celebrate. We also love to hangout and chill which are our way to unwind after a tiring day at work. If you're looking for an awesome restaurant to eat, chill, drink and unwind with your family and friends after a long day at work or when celebrating any event or special occasion, I recommend that you check out The Perfect Pint: Craft Beer + Fine Food.
The Perfect Pint is a premier destination and "go-to place" for local craft beers. As a gastropub and casual dining restaurant, they also offer sumptuous food treats that will surely be a perfect match for the craft beers that they manufacture in their own "microbrewery."
Last month, we visited The Perfect Pint's newest branch located at Alabang's Molito Lifestyle Center - one of the newest food trip destinations in Metro Manila. We met with the owner, Mr. Alec Tempongco who gladly welcomed us and toured us around the restaurant.
Opened last April 27, 2016, The Perfect Pint Alabang is a 2-level restaurant with dining areas on the upper and lower levels. I love the restaurant's very cozy ambiance and well-thought industrial design which makes it an awesome place chill and hangout.
Their microbrewery is located at the 2nd floor. Sir Alec let us see where they manufacture their craft beers and also explained to us the process of beer brewing. The process is quite interesting and its an amazing science and art. From the mashing, to the fermentation and bottling process, every step is carefully measured and perfected. Having a microbrewery in their restaurant allows them to concoct the most innovative, original and intriguing beer flavors.
Currently, The Perfect Pint Alabang already has six beer flavors being bottled on site. These are Thirsty Dog Wheat Beer, Hoppy Road IPA, Street Smart Pale Ale, Oakey Dokey Bourbon Barrel Porter, Black Mamba Stout and Holy Grail Double IPA.
After the quick tour, we went down and settled on our reserved table. Now, let's have a taste of their food offerings.
Oyster Sea-sig (PHP 385.00)Fresh oysters deep fried to a perfect crisp and tossed in a special mayonnaise and gastrique dressing. This Oyster Sea-sig is a perfect appetizer or as "pulutan" to Perfect Pint's specially concocted craft beers.
Heap of Fresh Bacon with House Pickles (PHP 390.00)This is my favorite! A huge pile of extra crispy homemade fresh bacon served with house pickles. The Perfect Pint's Heap of Fresh Bacon is definitely a must-try! Never leave The Perfect Pint without trying this! I'm sure, you will also get addicted to it! :)
Perfect Pint Paella (PHP 650.00)Ideal for sharing, the Perfect Pint Paella is saffron-flavored rice with shrimps, mussels, calamari, chorizo, green peas, poached egg and Perfect Pint's mouthwatering heap of bacon. Yummmm!
Crispy Sinigang (PHP 250.00 with coffee or home blend iced tea)Sinigang without the soup? Yes, they have it here! The Perfect Pint's deconstructed Crispy Sinigang is quite interesting and a unique take on the traditional sour soup dish. They infused the rice with sinigang flavor and then topped it with crispy pork and served with crispy kangkong on the side. This dish is part of their lunch specials and it is definitely a must-try!
Gambas al Ajillo (PHP 430.00)Market shrimps sauteed in butter and garlic. The Perfect Pint's Gambas al Ajillo is a very simple dish yet very delicious!
Cheesesteak Pizza (PHP 640.00)A perfect pair for their beer, this Cheesesteak Pizza is loaded with crispy shoestring potatoes, slices of beef atop a cheesy mass of ooey-gooey goodness, plated on a crispy dough.
Now, let's go with The Perfect Pint's Craft Beers. As a starter, you could order their Beer Flight Sampler where you could choose which beer flavors you would like to try from their wide variety of homebrews.
