Quick guide: 11 things to try at Tipple & Slaw sandwich bar
Tipple & Slaw is a sandwich bar located at the Forum, Bonifacio Global City, and which opened to the public last March.
The owners are Angela Manese, Chef Francis Lim, Janus Naval, Marlo Naval and Juano Gutierrez – and menu items are, in fact, what they say they would want to eat everyday.
Chicken Nuggets (P250)
Their version of Chicken Nuggets is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. They also provide three sauces for you to choose from: chili ketchup, honey mustard, and BBQ sauce. The best part about it all is the chicken meat has no binders and are made fresh.
Volcanic Wings (P380)
At first, I thought these wings looked super spicy, but when I got to try it, it was not that spicy after all. The wings are boneless and are stuffed with blue cheese, served with buffalo sauce which gives you that cheesy flavor from the inside.
Spicy Chicken Wrap (P250)
The Spicy Chicken Wrap contains two pieces of fresh oatmeal-crusted chicken, chopped herbs and smoked coleslaw wrapped in tortilla. It is spicier than the volcanic wings.
Spicy Seafood Pasta (P380)
Seafood-lovers would love this pasta dish as it is loaded with all the seafood we have all grown to love. This includes grilled shrimp, fresh crab, fresh salmon, crab fat, and caviar.
Tipple Pizza (P550)
This is a bit pricey, but it has all the fine ingredients you would want in a pizza, including tomato sauce, cheese, pastrami, corned beef, smoked bacon, BBQ sauce and ranch dressing on thin crust. The best part about the pizza – it isn’t too greasy.
Tipple Burger (P350)
The Tipple Burger’s got bacon, cheddar cheese and fresh grilled mushrooms sprinkled with BBQ sauce. I like how the fresh ground beef is so tender.
Porchetta Sandwich (P350)
This is one of their best-sellers and it is not hard to understand why. It is slow-roasted pork belly with pickled onions and arugula topped with balsamic syrup, plus ciabatta bread. I must warn you that the ciabatta bread is tough to slice so you may want to have the staff do it for you.
Italian Beef Sandwich (P350)
Another best-seller is two pieces of this sandwich loaded with slow-roasted roast beef, grilled peppers and Giardiniera. It comes with potato chips along with sidings of Giardiniera pickles, beef sauce, and spicy mustard.
Truffle Grilled Cheese Sandwich (P300)
The sandwich actually contains 4 kinds of cheese and is servd with tomato sauce, potato chips and honey. It is recommended that you dip the sandwich into the tomato sauce then sprinkle it with the honey.
Apple Pie FrenchToast (P180)
This dessert dish includes grilled apples, caramel sauce, streusel and Cinammon dust on French toast sprinkled with balsamic syrup.
S’mores Ice Cream Sandwich (P180)
Since we are in an American restaurant, we can’t be missing S’mores (roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between graham crackers) and we got that in the form of an ice cream sandwich with Vanilla Ice Cream. With the abundance of marshmallows here, it was what I got to taste more than the other things stuffed in this sandwich.
The place turns into a party spot with loud music being played every Friday and into a chill, more laid-back location on Saturdays. They are open Sundays to Thursdays from 11am to 1am and Friday to Saturday, 11am onwards. – Rappler.com
