  • The Black Pig in Alabang: Satisfying All Your European Food Cravings
  • The Black Pig has been well-loved by everyone since it was established way back December 2013. The name was a tribute to the local lechon, as well as the Spanish Iberico pig, and while “The Black Pig” may suggest that you’ll be expecting all pork meals (it may be a bit true), but there’s surprisingly more to offer!

    The overall menu is an adventure in itself as the restaurant sources their ingredients locally and delights in creating new changes. Thus, the menu changes constantly, also depending on what produce are fresh and in-season, thanks to world-class Chef Carlos Garcia Rodriguez and his amazing culinary history working the kitchens at Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe.

    With his culinary prowess, Chef Carlos beautifully introduces European flavors through The Black Pig’s mouthwatering dishes. And you know, they’re unlike any other.

    To start with the gastronomic experience, their best-selling Deboned Suckling Pig is a great choice. The pork is delicately cooked to goodness that it’s so soft! It is served with a delightful combination of carrot and cumin puree as well as an orange salad that cuts through the richess of the meat.

    Their Charcuterie Board, meanwhile, provides you with almost everything you could ask for in a plate of tapas. They’re the ideal pairing for that glass of Sangria (or other cocktails) that’s so hard to resist, so prep yourself for a Spanish treat!

    For your sweet tooth, one should never miss the Chocolate Praline. You’d cherish every slice and bite of it; that’s how decadent it is! Truly the perfect end to a meal.

    The Black Pig isn’t all meat, though, in case you’re practicing a cruelty-free lifestyle. As a matter of fact, they have one of the best vegan and vegetarian menus in town! Just ask for their specials so they can suggest some for you. They have a variety of offerings to fit your mood at specific parts of the day, too.

    As for the interior, it’s designed to have an easygoing mood of a rustic farmhouse, combined with the smart tenor of an urban city loft. The somber-hued clay tiles match very well with the restaurant’s wooden accents, not to mention the brick walls!

    Plus, everything inside is custom-made, such as the mango wood tabletops and leather-upholstered armchairs. You’ll love the bar, too, and it’s the spot if you’re looking for that city mood.

    Fun fact: The Black Pig is one of the first restaurants in Manila to serve craft beer on tap.

    These are just some of the things you’ll love about The Black Pig. Better visit when you can for a classy yet casual dining experience topped with a mouthwatering fare!
