FOOD: Moonshine PUB x Public Urban Bar

9:00 AM

Moonshine at the Sapphire Bloc in Ortigas was our restaurant of choice for dinner last Halloween. My friend Tin treated us to a bleated birthday meal and the grub at Moonshine was what she fancied.

RESTAURANT: Moonshine Pub x Public Urban Bar
Retail L005 to 006, The Sapphire Bloc, Sapphire Corner Onyx Corner Garnet Road, Ortigas, Pasig City

FOOD:  The food – at least to me – seemed like pub food x pinoy flavors. We’ve spied what sounded rather delish yum like Angus Beef Sisig, Lamb Shank Caldereta, Tokwa’t Bagnet Belly, and Pork Adobo Nachos.  

But what we did order for ourselves were the Crispy Pork Belly (P650) and boy that was yum! It was indeed crispy and had two dipping sauces – bbq sauce and the other one was vinegar. But believe me, it was yum even without dipping the porky goodness in anything.

There was the Triple-Garlic Salpicao (P320) which was tender and tasty and so was the Glazed Bangus with Ensaladang Manga (P390). The Bagoong Rice (P180) was just right with the fermented fish not overpowering.  

And for drinks, we had a carafe of Green Sting (P650) - a mix of calamansi, cucumber, basil, and vodka. 

ATMOSPHERE: The place is what is expected from a hipster establishment - bricks, Edison bulbs, and farmhouse-like metal chairs. The only downside was music was rather loud even during dinner. But when we requested for them to soften the music, they obliged.

SERVICE: Our server did a good job attending to us. It was quite easy to get his attention and he was rather quick to carry out each of our requests.

PRICE: Over-all, the food was good and the servings are pretty substantial so I guess that’s good value. 

Moonshine PUB x Public Urban Bar is locate at the Sapphire Bloc in Ortigas, Pasig. 

This is what half a kilo of Crispy Pork Belly from Moonshine looks like. 

There's the Triple Garlic Salpicao and our cocktail in a carafe. 

Bricks, Edison Bulb, and farmhouse-y chairs = hipster bar. 

The bar at Moonshine all decked for halloween. Boo!

The Pub has both an alfresco - street side and indoor dining areas. 
We ate street side because all of the tables inside has already been reserved for guests who called in.
