Celebrate Pinoy Oktoberfest at City Garden Hotel Makati!

Written By clapalisoc on Friday 30 September 2016 | 22:04

October signals the start of the world's largest beer festival originating from Germany. The concept has been adapted by a lot of countries including our own. As soon as the first of October hits, food and beverage businesses such as restaurants, bars and clubs go all out with their Oktoberfest menu! A month long celebration, Oktoberfest promises the best deals when it comes to beer, cocktails and even bar chows!

Filipino Oktoberfest
Roof Deck Bar New Menu!

In celebration of Oktoberfest, City Garden Hotel Makati prepared deals that you can't resist for the whole month of October! Through their late night Roof Deck Bar that has an awesome view of the Makati Skyline, they'll be launching their "FILIPINO OKTOBERFEST - PULUTAN EDITION!" Beer, gin, rhum, tequila - name it, they have it! Enjoy their very affordable pricing for these alcoholic beverages including cocktails and shooters when you avail any of the dishes in their Filipino Oktoberfest Menu!

City Garden Hotel Makati
Beer, gin, rum, tequila --- anyone?

Cocktails for 99Php? Shooters for 50Php? Bucket of 6 Beer Bottles for 450Php? What about fresh fruit juice/slush for a refreshing break for 50Php? Awesome deals!

We got the chance to try the following ---

House Margarita from City Garden Hotel Makati

House Margarita for 99Php

Pinacolada from City Garden Hotel Makati

Pinacolada for 99Php

Shooters from City Garden Hotel Makati

Nutty Irishman (shooter) for 50Php & Melon Ball (shooter) for 50Php

Fresh Watermelon Slush from City Garden Hotel Makati

Watermelon Slush for 50Php

Onto the "Pulutan" or Bar Chows, we tried the following ---

Beer Coated Chicken Popcorn from City Garden Hotel Makati

Beer Coated Chicken Popcorn for 350Php

A shy away from the usual Chicken Popcorn that uses ground chicken meat, I loved each bite of these little balls! Using chicken breast fillet, the chicken meat was tender and flavorful. The coating was sweet but also had some sour notes. Perfect beer match indeed!

Lumpiang Sisig with Pico de Gallo Sauce from City Garden Hotel Makati

Lumpiang Sisig with Pico de Gallo Sauce for 310Php

A genius twist to a Classic "Pulutan" favorite of Filipinos, they wrapped their tasty and meaty Sisig into Lumpia wrappers! Each bite will give you a nice crunch from the wrapper and an explosion of goodness from the generous heaping of Sisig!

Glimpse of all the Sisig goodness in each roll!

Served with an equally good Pico de Gallo Sauce, dip each roll into this for an added flavor. But trust me, the Sisig rolls are good even without the sauce!

Banana Wrapped in Bacon "Harumaki" from City Garden Hotel Makati

Banana Wrapped in Bacon "Harumaki" for 250Php

Honestly, who would have thought that banana and bacon would go so well together? Their corporate Chef, Dennis Peralta is such a genius! Imagine, sweet and soft Saging na Saba wrapped in salty and crispy bacon - it worked and it's delicious! Served with Yakitori Sauce, dip in to get that Japanese flare.

Kilawing Isda in Pinakurat Vinegar from City Garden Hotel Makati

Kilawing Isda in Pinakurat Vinegar for 375Php

Ceviche is not an easy dish to prepare. Some sort of expertise is needed, I believe, to ensure that the dish is nothing sort of "fishy" in smell and taste. City Garden Hotel Makati did an awesome job with this one. Cubes of fresh Tanigue that has been marinated with Pinakurat Vinegar with onions, fresh chili and ginger - the fish was "cooked" well with no slimy texture at all.

Crispy Crablets with Chili Soy Vinegar from City Garden Hotel Makati

Crispy Crablets with Chili Soy Vinegar for 275Php

Baby crabs that have been marinated in lemon, salt and pepper, coated with flour and then deep fried - I loved the crunch from each piece! You'll get hooked with this bar chow and wouldn't notice that you've actually had a lot!

Other than these dishes that we've tried, they also have Classic Crispy Pata in their menu. According to Rinna, their F&B Manager, each order is about 1.2kgs in weight! For 925Php, that's a relatively cheap compared to other restaurants!

Another item in their Filipino Oktoberfest menu that got me was the Salted Egg Yolk Calamares. We weren't able to try this but I'm excited to go back for this!

Overall, we loved the dishes and the drinks that we've tried. Their price points are relatively cheap and won't get you intimidated. They also have LIVE ACOUSTIC BAND performance every Friday. Plus, their view of the Makati Skyline is just awesome! Great place to chill and unwind after a long day at work or probably a great place to celebrate the end of a work week!

Go on and visit the Roof Deck Bar of City Garden Hotel Makati and enjoy their Filipino Oktoberfest Menu!
