Belated happy birthday to my (self-proclaimed) foodie! We celebrated his
24th 34th with his closest boybuds in a place where butterbeer is served! But before I say something about the famed drink from the Harry Potter series, here are the dishes we ate at Backyard Kitchen + Brew—
Kitayama Beef Cheek and Brisket Pares served with garlic rice, chili garlic, and toyomansi. Liked this, but my heart still belongs to the pares na nabibili sa may kanto. Ako na ang jologs! :P
Uni Carbonara. The sauce is made of uni, leek, and cream. It’s topped with fish cheese flakes and tobiko or fish roe. The uni taste was too subtle for my liking. Superb creaminess of the sauce though.
Roasted Beef Salpicao. It’s roasted beef belly chunks with lots of garlic. Not so sure what spices they used, but the boys did not call it Salpicao Arabo for nothing! :D They seemed to enjoy this with Sriracha.
We had theee kinds of pizzas (Garlic Flat Breads on their menu)–
Four Cheese and Truffle (mozzarella, cheddar, ricotta and bleu with truffle oil),
Longganisa and Peppers, also with mozzarella and ricotta,
and Duck Flakes with Sriracha, has hoisin sauce and ricotta. Among the three, our favorite was the one with longganisa and peppers. We liked it so much that we had one more!
And of course, the highlight of our night– THE BUTTERBEER! It’s the bestseller among their flavored beers. Other flavors are salted caramel, macadamia, passion fruit, and strawberry. The Butterbeer tasted like cream soda with a kick- sweet, bubbly, refreshing, and intoxicating (after 3 mugs, maybe)! A really nice tasty cold treat on a warm night. Sabi nga ng boys, first time lang daw sila nag-enjoy sa bula ng beer. Nyahaha!
We also tried one of their One Drinks- The Backyard Margarita Fishbowl.
Drink it if you want this kind of bonding with your friends. Hihihi :p
They sent the birthday boy a sweet (and yummy!) surprise treat– Kitkat Brownie with Mantecado Ice Cream. Thanks to Backyard Manila for making Miko’s
24th 34th extra fun!

Na-emphasize lang ang generation ng buong table namin! :) They also have comedy nights and acoustic nights. Check out their Facebook page for more info.
