No need to wrack your brain for an excuse to have a night out with friends at the end of the work week at this newest bar in Tomas Morato.
Tucked discreetly in the basement of a converted house along Scout Delgado Street in the Tomas Morato area, Alibi is reason enough to chill out with your crew as you enjoy your favorite cocktail and bar chow.
But just in case you need to justify your night out for the Third Inquisition when you get home, you might want to mention how irresistible these are:
One: Tasty bar chow for a serious case of the munchies.
Chase away your hunger with these bar chows:
Tuna Sashimi and Salmon Sashimi (Php275 each).
Salpicao (Php250). Cubes of hanger steak sauteed in roasted garlic and served with mushrooms and cherry tomatoes.
Country-Style Fried Chicken (Php200), Juicy pieces of chicken tenders, breaded and deep-fried to a golden brown and served with gravy.
Baby Back Ribs (Php250). Succulent grilled pork ribs coated in barbecue sauce and served with a tangy coleslaw on the side.
Alibi Fries (Php190). Deep-fried thick-cut fries served with cheese and katsu sauces and topped with bonito flakes.
Mini Sausage (Php150). Sausages cut in bite-size pieces.
Pork Sisig (Php250). The classic Pinoy appetizer made of minced pork pieces sauteed in calamansi, onions and chilis.
Oyster Sisig (Php290). Alibi’s fresh take on the staple dish using oysters in the place or pork. Wow! (More on Alibi’s oyster offerings later.)
￼Two: Exciting cocktails to try.
Drink to a well-deserved weekend break with Alibi’s signature concoctions.
Lychee Mojito (Php145). Made with lychee, mint leaves and rum.
Tomato Quila (Php145). Made with tomatoes, pear juice and Jinro Grapefruit Soju.
Hello Kiwi (Php145). Made with kiwi, aloe vera, absinthe and soda.
Yakuroto Vodka (Php165). Made with cherry, peach vodka and Yakult.
Three: An oyster bar. ‘Nuff said!
Fresh Aklan oysters, whether plain, topped with Miso Bechamel or Pesto sauce, yours for Php50 apiece.
Who wouldn’t want to take a decadent taste of the sea with these glorious Philippine oysters?
So, go ahead. Take a long-awaited breather for the weekend. Hang out with your friends. You’ve already got your Alibi.
Alibi is located at 115 Scout Delgado Street, Barangay Sacred Heart, Quezon City, open Thursdays to Saturdays, from 7pm to 3am.
