Village Tavern Classic American Dishes- Bonifacio High Street

After our sumptuous Korean feast at Bulgogi Brothers brought to us by The Bistro Group, we were once again welcomed to try classic American dishes at Village Tavern in Bonifacio High Street.

Village Tavern is the newest member of The Bistro Group which specializes in burgers, steaks, fish, whole wheat flatbreads and pizza

Responsible for the new and exciting dishes at Village Tavern is the new corporate chef for Bistro Group, Chef Josh Boutwood

Homemade Jalapeño Poppers (P290)- breaded cream cheese and bacon stuffed jalapeño poppers

Perfectly breaded jalapenos filled with cream cheese and bacon. Crisp, creamy, a tad spicy and oh so good. Served together with a salsa dip and salad on the side. 

Fully Loaded Sweet Potato Skins (P240)- roasted sweet potato filled with cream cheese and bacon

And if you haven't had enough of cream cheese, jalapeño and bacon, then try out Village Tavern's interesting twist to the classic potato skins. For this appetizer, they made use of sweet potatoes which I found better than the regular white potatoes. Filled it up with cream cheese on the center topped with jalapeño and bacon bits and there you have it, Fully Loaded Sweet Potato Skins

Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Wings (P225)- deep fried chicken flat wings coated with sweet and tangy teriyaki sauce

A plate of wings glazed in sweet and savory sesame teriyaki sauce with oriental notes. Although I prefer drumettes for my wings, Village Tavern's flat wings were juicy and flavorful inside and out. 

Black Pizza (P395)- squid ink pizza dough with Parmesan, Gruyere, Mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers and onions 

Village Tavern's new pizza offering is this Black Pizza made from squid ink especially created by Chef Josh himself. His recipe originally uses charcoal to make the black dough but due to limited resources and diners who are reluctant at the idea of charcoal in their food, he used the best alternative which is squid ink. 

Topped with pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and three cheese favorites-parmesan, gruyere and mozzarella, the pizza was indeed loaded with toppings that are truly classic. 

Forest Pizza (P475)- Asiago cream with wild mushroom and walnuts, topped with Mozzarella,  Parmesan cheese and truffle oil

Another pizza we got to try was this Forest Pizza of wild mushrooms and walnuts in Asiago cream, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese with aromatic essence of truffle oil. 

Both pizzas were pleasing to the palate with crispy yet not too thin crust. While one was a unique and overloaded with toppings, the other was classic and simple but loaded with creamy and cheesy goodness.  

Texas Baby Back Ribs (P650-half/P1195-whole)- baby back ribs with special cola and chipotle glaze 

Aside from buffalo wings and cheesecake as my favorite comfort food, baby back ribs also tops my list. Village Tavern's version didn't fail me as the rack of almost-fall-off-the-bone grilled pork ribs was a delight to my appetite.

The rack was beautifully charred with chipotle glaze and subtle dose of cola for that sweet and tangy flavor leaving the meat tender and juicy. This one reminds me of The Real Things Diner's Coca-Coala Baby Back Ribs that I super love. Sadly, they closed down in Il Terrazzo.

Rastelli's Pureland Black Angus Beef Steak

Marinated Flank Steak (P895/8 oz.)
Ribeye (P1,395-8 oz./P1950-12 oz.)
Fillet Mignon (P1,450/8 oz.)
New York Strip (P1,995/12 oz.)

Aged, hand-cut and grilled to perfection- using only the highest quality prime beef from superior beef cattles in the U.S. 

Treat yourself to a Great Steakout with Village Tavern's irresistible promo of 40% off on steaks every Friday-Sunday until supplies last. 

Go ahead and spoil yourself with this tender, juicy, mouth-watering and succulent premium beef steak that will certainly leave you craving for more. 

Cowboy Burger (P595)- Applewood-smoked bacon, Cheddar cheese with caramelized onions and barbecue sauce

Iced Tea (P75/ P110-refillable)

And if everything seems not enough, try Village Tavern's famous Cowboy Burger- Thick and juicy all-beef patty topped with melted cheddar, sweet and tangy barbecue sauce, strips of bacon and caramelized onions in sesame bun. Reminds me of the delicious Cowboy Burger from Wingman, but this was certainly better. 

An order is also served with really addicting crunchy orange sweet potato fries and honey mustard dip. Seriously, I just can't get enough of the sweet potato fries. 


Feast over Village Tavern's delectable homemade cakes and desserts to satisfy one's sweet tooth. 

Very Best Carrot Cake (P345)- fresh carrots, pecan and cream cheese icing served warm

Banana Crepes (P395)- Layered with chocolate hazelnut, banana ice cream, fresh banana, caramel and chocolate sauce

St. Barths Chocolate Torte (P395)-  Rich and very moist French cake, vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce

    The World According To Me

  37. I would like to try the Banana Crepes, since when it comes to fruits, Bananas are the most tummy filling for me. although I must say that the price is a bit high.

  38. mouth watering! I am intrigued with the black pizza. yes, i think the squid ink is a better choice than charcoal. love the dessert. love the steak. they ALL look yummy!

  39. sweet potato is Kamote correct? i think i would still prefer potato fries...

  40. interesting pizzas, desserts and drinks.

  41. whole wheat pizza sounds really good! u give justice to the steak as well! very yummy! xx

  42. One of my places-to-eat before the year ends. The pizzas look awesome, not to mention ALL the desserts. :)

  43. the food dudeNovember 22, 2012
