Whether you’re after beers and sun or moonlight and cocktails, Chill Top Circulo Verde’s high altitude drinking spots are well worth the climb.
Lording it over the rest of the city, with a drink in hand, is truly one of life’s great pleasures. You may not be that rich, but it truly feels good having the city literally at your feet. Chill Top Restobar in its Circulo Verde Branch in Pasig allows you to experience such. Pasig City may not exactly have the greatest weather, but when the temperature rises and the sky is clear, it always delivers on the outdoor drinking front. While we’re talking beverages, Psst.ph also scanned and tried Chill Top Circulo Verde’s best cocktails, chows and booze as well. Cheers! Read on for more details…
We’re big fans of good food with an awesome view. Chill Top Circulo Verde’s one of the first few establishments to spring up in the area, and their super awesome nachos paired with their best-selling Blue Green Slush and Hickory Dickory Pork are some of the best reasons to come and visit the place. So raise your hands in the air and keep that high spirit going for Chill Top Circulo Verde.
Chill Top Bar Circulo Verde also serves your favourites from the Chill Top Cubao outlet, including icy mugs of coffee and chocolate slush, Mexican thin pizza—try it, crispy and delightful pizza slices made just right the way you’d want it. Their Hickory Dickory Pork are smoky barbecue glazed tender pork that’s well-marinated (we highly recommend you order them because they’re absolutely delicioso!) Go crisp on their Nachos filled with sweet and sour and cream cheese dipping sauce. And good news for those looking for affordable all-day breakfast meals, they also have it here—Tapsilog, Tocilog, Corned Beef Silog are among Chill Top’s favourites. We really enjoyed their Flasher Squid, a new addition to Chill Top’s menu—you can now enjoy those deep fried squid as big as your arm.
Chill Top Circulo Verde can accommodate groups and families who likes to enjoy and bond with each other. There are available private KTV rooms for rent for those who’d like to take on the microphone and sing their heart’s out. The good news is that big groups would have less time queuing and more time chatting and eating because Chill Top Circulo Verde can accommodate as much.
From the moment the doors open local suits and bar hunters with their finger on the pulse start staking their claim on the precious rooftop real estate so that they can spend an evening lording it over Pasig.
The cocktail list is worth trying, with some success, to make bright, retro cocktails a thing again. Their take on the Zombie, their Bombshells (cocktails with signature ice balls) both tastes you’re on a tequila holiday with orange and cherry juice. It’s a tall, and very sweet cocktail, but goes easy on the booze so it’s so easy to forget it’s got some alcohol content (because you can actually order some mocktails!). The Blue Green Slush is a shade of azure not seen since alco-pops went out of style and is unabashedly boozy with rhum, tequila and lemonade. Their neon-hued Bombshells in Sonic Tonic, Mojito, Beach Bum, Siete and Zombie Chill along with Carafe (cool refreshing alcoholic shakes) like Pink Slush, Coffee Alco Slush, Mango Slush and Chocolate Slush and margaritas are enough to make you and your buddies happy.
Now, let’s get to the food review:
Chilltop’s Nacho Sweet is quick, easy and definitely worth the effort. Dip into creamy garlicky sweet and sour-y cream cheese. A thick, creamy nacho cheese sauce that you will swear came out of a jar. Cheesy, subtly spicy, and bursting with nacho flavor–it rivals any store-bought nacho cheese sauce. Just be sure to save some aside for yourself! Serve warm immediately over or with tortilla chips, on tacos or burritos, or as any other dip.”They also have the usual nachos if you’re not quite adventurous when it comes to food.
The now-classic buffalo wing, a paragon of bar-food excellence and the subject of passionate devotion for purists. How does Chill Top’s Love Birds fare against trendy Korean places quietly popping up all over the country, with their newfangled twice-fried wings and drumsticks?
In the span of an hour and a half and in one valiant sitting, we had accomplished one simple task: chicken wings only, consumed exactly as they were prepared. No dipping sauce. No soft drinks, no beer, no possum, no sop, no taters; water only, to keep the taste buds fresh. Chill Top’s Love Birds or medium wings, which are fine the plump drumettes are a particular pleasure, crisp-skinned and juicy. It’s doused in sauce and has an admirable complexity and decent bite. This is good stuff of obvious quality, cooked right and not overly sauced, entirely worthy of the wing as we’ve come to love it. Bravo.
All-day breakfast meals
Also good for sharing is their Hickory Dickory Pork -pork meat is marinated with special sauce and smoked, The meat is fork tender, almost melt in your mouth . It also comes with vegetable coleslaw . This is a highly recommended dish . ( Php 254).
Their Mexican thin crust pizza topped with sausage, onions, bell pepper and nachos (Php 285) is ideal for sharing between 2 to 4 persons.
Chill Top’s Inside Job a.k.a. Deep fried chicharon bulaklak is a great appetizer. It goes perfectly well with a bottle of beer, or any Chilltop cocktails or beverages to wolf it down. We love that it does not have any rancid smell and is crunchy .
Unlike other resto and bars that serve ‘rubbery squids,’ we were glad Chill Top’s Flasher Squid remains crunchy despite being exposed to air for minutes. Served on a vertical skewer with vinegar dip, it’s among the must-try dishes at Chill Top Resto Bar.
