Brewed in Tagaytay
With Canadian brew master Mike Wayne at the helm, Papa Bolo brews its very own signature craft beers using local produce. As of writing, the pub has six offerings: Barkada Bliss, Cowboy Classic, Twin Sun, Bad Pony, Disco Biscuit, and Piña Nina.
Fresh from the tap!
Their Barkada Bliss (Bohemian pilsner) is the best way to introduce someone to the world of craft beer: its flavor profile reminiscent of a famous brand in the country.
If you want something strong, try the Twin Suns (double IPA). With a strong alcohol content that sits at 10% ABV, this is a juicy take on the variety that is usually hop-centric and assertive both in aroma and flavor.
The Piña Nina (pineapple ale), on the other hand, is a mild ale with a fruity profile that highlights the flavors of one of Tagaytay’s prime produce: pineapples.
A pint of their signature craft beer only costs Php 275.
If you frequent Poblacion in Makati for its thriving night life and food scene, you probably know Lampara, a neo-Filipino bistro that specializes in bringing quirky twists and upgrades to Filipino classics (with catchy names, to boot!). Co-owners RJ Ramos and Alphonse Sotero are the ones behind the expertly curated menu at Papa Bolo.
Crispy pata with basil and corriander sauce
From fall-off-the-bones crispy pata (deep-fried pork knuckles) served with a Thai-inspired sauce instead of the usual soy-vinegar dip, to succulent chicken lollipops with blue and mozzarella cheese dip, the food at Papa Bolo is a far cry from the boring french fries and sizzling sisig (minced pork and chicken liver with chopped onions and chili peppers) most joints usually offer as bar chow.
