It should have been the night I try Draft for the first time. I braved the strong rain and drove to the Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City. Unfortunately, Draft GastroPub was closed for a public party that night. Boo me! But we were already so hungry. We chanced upon Craft Pub & Grill. We jokingly said, there’s only one letter difference so at least we were able to try “raft”. Lol. We didn’t regret it. Food and booze were good at Craft Pub & Grill.
Craft Pub & Grill is a hangout spot that offers American food and imported beer. I believe they also have craft beers but I wasn’t able to try them. I had one of my favorite imported booze – Stella Artois. Since they serve American food, the portions are also huge.
Craft Pub & Grill has a Western feel. It makes me like I am in MacLaren’s Pub from How I Met Your Mother. You can choose to sit on the bar, on a booth, on a high bar chair, and on a common dinner table set-up.
Craft Pub & Grill has a stage and they have live bands every Wednesdays.
For starters, we had Buffalo Shrimps (Php395). This is something new and a spin-off of the usual buffalo wings. This is served with a side of sliced carrot and celery. Crunchhh!
Another appetizer that we had was Fish and Chips (Php295). It is served with vinegar as dip. I have learned that authentic fish and chips use vinegar as dip instead of mayo and ketchup.
I had a taste of the Philly Cheese Steak (Php295). This is a common sub served in American pubs and delis. Philly Cheese Steak is a symphony of beef, cheese, onion, mushroom, and bell pepper. It’s served with a side of fries.
We also tried Craft’s specialty – the Craft Burger (Php375). The 1/2 pound patty is made of prime Angus beef. The burger patty is topped with horseradish sauce, lettuce, and served with onion rings and fries.
Craft is really a master of their craft. Food was really delicious and very filling. Come to think of it, it’s good that Draft was reserved that night. I discovered an awesome hangout spot because of that.
Spread some awesome..ness..
