Skippy’s Bar & Grill, Bonifacio Global City

The 28th of June marks the opening of Australian restaurant Skippy’s Bar & Grill at the Bonifacio Global City. Skippy’s Bar & Grill is owned by two lovey-dovey couple, Miss Cristina Sarabia and Sir Stephen Bird.Image

My co-bloggers and I  talked with Miss Gella, the brand’s marketing employee, and she told us about the symbols and paraphernalia attached to the walls of the establishment. The pictures below have significance for Australians. She also mentioned that the market of Skippy’s are expats.skippy_paraphernalia

After that, we got an hour of Aussie treat. Here’s the food we had!

Battered Dim Sims (P 250.00) is a popular snack in Australia and it is like a dumpling, and it is fried. Its size is like a nugget, but bigger. Before eating, it must be sprinkled with a seasoning (that is a bit salty), and a mayo dip.Image

Aside from lettuce, Skippy’s Salad (P 250.00) is made of ham, grilled chicken, egg, and cheese. The vegetables are thinly sliced. I bet that eating this alone can already make you full.Image

Meanwhile, the Green Salad (P 200.00) has more greens than Skippy’s Salad. It comes with the same dressing, too.Image

I totally like the Shepherd’s Pie (P 450.00) because it is far different from the homemade pies I have tasted. This one contains ground lamb and the stuffed mashed potatoes make the dish even more delicious. Image

Meanwhile, the Chicken Parmigiana (P 450.00) is an oven baked crumbed chicken with tomato sauce and cheese. I also like this dish! Plus, the criss-cross fries are very presentable.Image

Cranberry Juice (P 100.00) helped me wash down all of the food I ate. Their juice is good! Meanwhile, Carol ordered for Four Seasons (P 100.00)Image

Going back to the food, the Baby Back Ribs (P195.00 PROMO) is tender, of course. However, I find it a bit oily.Image

Both their Baby Back Ribs, the Salisbury Steak are served with coleslaw. The burger is a bit small, but the taste is not that bad.Image

The Shawarma Pizza is a must-try for it is overloaded with toppings like onion, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, cumin, mozarella, grilled sirloin, and it has yogurt too!Image

Meanwhile, The Big Breakfast has 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, mushrooms, hash brown, toasted bread, butter, and an unlimited brewed coffee or glass of iced tea for only P 310.00. This is so worth it!Image

After eating, they offered us cocktails. I had their Strawberry Margarita (P 230.00). Their Strawberry Margarita is less strong than Chihuahua’s. After that, they present to us their Flaming Lambhorgini (P450.00) which was shot by Aldous. Thanks for inviting me again, Aldous.Image

The PR delightfully shared us their oozing promotions like:

serves breakfast for as low as P165 with great selection to choose from. They serve breakfast from 9AM to 3 PM

*affordable lunch menu for only P195 serving from 11AM to 7PM.

*drink till you drop unli-cocktail promotion happening every Sunday to Thursday. For a meager price of P379, one can drink to his heart’s desire with over 40 selections to choose from.

*Skippy’s offer a 4+1 local beer selection during its crazy long happy hour starting from 10AM to 8PM every Monday to Saturday, and all-day during Sunday Fun Day.

*Skippy’s flavorful chicken wings –14 pieces of this delectable intense wings are up for grabs for only P150 from Sunday to Tuesday when availing of the 4+1 local beer promo.

From the interiors to the dishes they offer, I absolutely love the ambience of the restaurant, because its appearance is pretty much like what we see in international films. Moreover, I also like places where the bar is located at the center. I’m just really particular with this one, sorry. Their air conditioner is not working properly, but they told us that they are working on it as well as their WiFi connection. In addition, they have different activities each day. We visited the place on a Tuesday so we had an acoustic night! As for the pricing, I’d say that the prices and serving size were well-assessed for the food and serving., I would definitely enjoy the food if I am not on a diet. The servers are all bubbly, I swear.Image

Ambiance: 4/5
Price: 5/5
Serving: 5/5
Service: 5/5
Taste: 3.5/5

    1. Yes… that is why it is hard to penetrate in the food industry today.. One should really stand out. and Skippy’s is the first Aussie resto I heard in Metro Manila

  1. Great to see that they have adjusted their menu and “filipinized” some of it. I see a couple of dishes served with rice.

  2. I have been there many times now. Had the burger the breakfast dim sims chiko rolls pizza and beer. Just like home. love it
