I’m not much of a beer drinker, but trying out some of the best Philippines’ craft beers seemed interesting, especially if paired with food conceptualized by famed chef, Gene Gonzalez.
The Perfect Pint is at the 2nd floor of Crossroads in 32nd St, BGC. Same building as Recovery Food. I hoped as we were walking to TPP that their food’s much better than RF’s because I think their food is just overpriced so-so food.
We got to TPP around 9pm on a Friday night. There were no available tables left, so we stayed at the bar. I liked the wood/brick interiors and the wall art. Nice calligraphy. :)
I had the Pivo Praha Weizen and Miko had the Pivo Praha Dark Lager. Both are priced 220php each/440ml and 185php/330ml. My weizen was light, refreshing, with a mild taste of banana and vanilla. His dark lager was hoppy and kinda tasted like caramel.
Miko’s beer went well (as their menu suggested) with the Beer Braised Short Ribs. Think beef pares super sosyal-version at 360php. Super tasty and packs a lot of flavor.
I was not so happy with my food, the Crispy Kapal Muks with Black Pepper Rice (220php). The pork mascara was crispy alright, but the meat wasn’t well seasoned and the rice wasn’t peppery enough. Good thing I paired it with a weizen. I wouldn’t have tasted anything if chose the dark lager.
We had a beer sampler to end the meal. Can’t remember what the 4 kinds are called, but everything was good, except for the one that smelled floral, which was probably the Sierra Madre Wheat Ale. They also wines and cocktails with engag8ing names such as Kiss My Toes, Magdalena, and Dominatrix. :p
We’ll be back to try the other beers, especially that one with the coffee, choco, and caramel flavor that wasn’t available that time. Cheers to local craft beers!
