Where to Drink in Quezon City: Alibi Bar
Want to know a secret? Did you know that after getting your fill on everything K-Food at Geonbae Korean BBQ Restaurant, you can get your fill of spirits in a hip directly below it? Say hello to Alibi Bar Tomas Morato. A sleek speakeasy bar that serves unique cocktails and tasty bar chows in the food capital of Quezon City. We promise you, no tricks and decoy entrances. Just the perfect place and alibi for a good night out in town!
Alibi Bar: Tasty Seafood and Bar Chows Overload
Okay let me get things straight. I’m not one to drink without having food alongside. So I was over the moon when I found out that Alibi Bar had much to offer in that department. And an impressive, seafood overloaded one, mind you! I know, I know. Drinking is often paired with meats and fatty/oily eats. But I like to keep things classy that way (besides we were in a fancy speakeasy bar after all).
First up: FRESH OYSTERS. At an impressively-cheap Php 50.00 per piece price, get your fill of this delightful aphrodisiac at Alibi Bar. First graze at the beautiful display at the bar. Then decide if you want them fresh (with lemon) or torched with miso or pesto. SLURP!
That or indulge on Alibi’s Tuna and Salmon Sashimi at Php 275.00 per plate.
Meatlover? Alibi Bar also prepped up a delicious bar chow menu for you.
Choose from Beef Salpicao (Php 250.00 – HTD Fave), Pork Sisig (Php 250.00), Oyster Sisig (Php 290.00 – Bestseller). Or you can keep it light with their Alibi Fries (Php190.00) and Mini Sausages (Php 150.00). Now for those that like it heavier, Alibi also has some tasty plates up their sleeve.
I loved their sweet-savory and oh-so-tender Baby Back Ribs (Php 250.00 – good for sharing) best. But Alibi’s Country Style Fried Chicken (Php 220.00, more like poppers) is a tasty filling choice too.
Alibi Bar’s Unique Cocktail Drinks
During my ‘clubbing days’, I’ve always thought that good drinks become the signature of any bar. And I’m quite happy that Alibi Bar Tomas Morato was able to match my expectations, based on that fancy cocktail drinks list. On top of my hits was the LycheeMojito.
Made with lychee, mint leaves and rum, Alibi’s fruity version of the classic mojito was a real treat for just Php 145.00. It had the perfect balance of sweet, bitter, and citrus.Second place on my must drink at Alibi Bar was the Yakuroto Vodka (Php 165.00). An addictive mix of peach vodka, Yakult, and cherry. I loved how smooth all of the ingredients came together, albeit being a little sweet for my usual choice of drink.
While the Tomato Quila (Php145.00) was not really up my alley, hehe. We came back after dinner to try the Hello Kiwi (Php145.00 – kiwi, aloe vera, absinthe and soda). But it was sadly unavailable. All the perfect alibi to go back!
