2nd Floor Commercenter Building, 31st Ave corner 4th St., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig Tel. No. (0917) 529-8333 Open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 5 p.m. onwards (Monday to Friday); 5 p.m. onwards (Saturday and Sunday)
Relik Tapas Bar sits on the second floor of a Bonifacio Global City high-rise and can be found by way of a flight of stairs or an elevator ride to the building’s parking lot. Outfitted in brick walls, a mix of benches and booth seats and antique pieces like typewriters and an old-school turntable, Relik fuses Old World charm with modern touches, including an open kitchen which gives customers a glimpse of how the kitchen churns out Relik’s tapas and entrees. “[The place] is very casual but we also wanted to give customers a bar with a high-end feel without the expensive price tag,” says Relik’s Patty Cortez.
Sausage and Fries, P230
Pepperade and Lardon Risotto, P350
A quick look at the menu with mainly Spanish Mediterranean dishes reveals a mix of the usual tapas plates with Relik’s signature dishes. Beer drinkers who like downing more than a bottle will like Relik’s Sausage and Fries (P230), their version of Huevos Rotos with fat potato wedges and spicy sausage slices, all topped with a fried egg with a runny yolk, while the Baked Austrian Brie (P530) pairs nicely with a glass of wine. Local beers start at P74 while Relik’s shooters (P140 each) play with mint and fruit flavors: drinks include the minty Green Demon while the Killer is for stronger, can’t-be-licked-by-liquor drinkers
