I’ve heard so much postive feedback about The Black Pig restaurant located at CommerCenter. Finally, I was able to tried it , thanks to #ZomatoPH for the invite.
The Black Pig’s name is inspired by the Spain’s Black Iberico Pig which is known to be the finest ham in the world and our very own Native Lechon which are both delicious beyond compare.
The interior of The Black Pig is kinda classy with matching dim lights that’s perfect for your special date night. They also have an alfresco dining set up where you can enjoy the cold air at night. Black Pig also serve alcoholic drinks which are crafted at their very own in-house bar.
While waiting for your meals you can start digging on their freshly baked complimentary breads. Yey! Honestly, it’s hard for me to decide which is my most favorite dish because everything they served are all delicious. Below are some of Black Pig’s dishes that we tried.
The Black Pig Charcuterie Board (P950)
We started our meal with nothing but the best hams like Lomo Iberico, Chorizo Iberico, Sacchicho Iberico , Salami Milano with some fresh greens, salsa and toasted breads on the side. You may also add some cheese for an extra cost per grams. All you can say while munching on some ham is, Where’s the wine?
Asian Mix Salad (P390)
What a beautiful combination of colors for this salad. It includes mixed leaves, red cabbages, the fried wantons and sesame seeds gave this salad some crunch. While the sweet ponkan wedges balances the dressings.
Calamares and Fries (P350)
Perfectly cooked squids with the right amount of batter. It is so good that you wouldn’t feel any rubbery texture of the squid. This is good for sharing but be sure to have an extra order because you will find it “bitin”.
Say hello to these glorious scallops cooked in bone marrow, pickled onions and some calamansi butter sauce.
Beef Cheeks (P850)
Beautifully plated melt in your mouth Beef Cheeks. I’m sure anyone will be impressed with this dish.
Shrimp Risotto (P420)
A creamy platter of Risotto with some shrimps. A simple dish yet you will be fully satisfied after.
Black Ink Rice with Squid and Aioli (P250)
Another beautiful dish from Black Pig, sauteed calamari topped on a black in rice with aioli sauce. The sauce has a nice creaminess and will not give any “umay” at all.
Mushroom Truffle Canneloni (P450)
The melt-in-your mouth canneloni is worth its price. If you love muhsroom truffle don’t ever think twice of getting this dish. Still, I can’t stop thinking about it while I’m writing this blog haha.
Pork Belly (P490)
Indulge yourself with Black Pig’s Pork Belly, have it with plain rice and I’m sure you will leave a clean plate after haha. Seriously, the Pork fat is very satisfying.
Salt-Crusted Sea Bass (P790)
We’re lucky that we have tried this dish, because according to the Chef they only serve 2 orders of Salt-Crusted Sea Bass per day. The whole fish is covered with salt but don’t worry it’s not salty at all. The salt set to a crust holds the moisture in the fish.
The Black Pig Burger (P390)
Carnivorous will rejoice with their burger patty, moist and juicy. There’s not too much dressings on it but its completely delicious. It is served with fries and some onion string. One order is actually good for sharing.
We concluded our meal with Black Pig’s , they are the living proof that Life is better with desserts!
Calamansi Dalandan Tart
Chocolate Tart (P250)
