The 28th of June marks the opening of Australian restaurant in BGC – Skippy’s Bar & Grill. Skippy’s Bar & Grill is owned by two lovey-dovey couple, Miss Cristina Sarabia and Sir Stephen Bird.

My co-bloggers and I talked with Miss Gella, the brand’s marketing employee, and she told us about the symbols and paraphernalia attached to the walls of the establishment. The pictures below have significance for Australians. She also mentioned that the market of Skippy’s are expats.

After that, we got an hour of Aussie treat. Here’s the food we had!

Skippy’s Appetizer

Battered Dim Sims (P 250.00)

It is a popular snack in Australia and it is like a dumpling, and it is fried. Its size is like a nugget, but bigger. Before eating, it must be sprinkled with a seasoning (that is a bit salty), and a mayo dip.

Skippy’s Salad

Aside from lettuce, Skippy’s Salad (P 250.00) is made of ham, grilled chicken, egg, and cheese. The vegetables are thinly sliced. I bet that eating this alone can already make you full.

Green Salad

Meanwhile, the Green Salad (P 200.00) has more greens than Skippy’s Salad. It comes with the same dressing, too.

Skippy’s Oven-baked Dishes

Shepherd’s Pie

I totally like the Shepherd’s Pie (P 450.00) because it is far different from the homemade pies I have tasted. This one contains ground lamb and the stuffed mashed potatoes make the dish even more delicious.

Shawarma Pizza

The Shawarma Pizza is a must-try for it is overloaded with toppings like onion, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, cumin, mozarella, grilled sirloin, and it has yogurt too!

Chicken Parmigiana

Meanwhile, the Chicken Parmigiana (P 450.00) is an oven-baked crumbed chicken with tomato sauce and cheese. I also like this dish! Plus, the criss-cross fries are very presentable.

Skippy’s Meats

Baby Back Ribs

Going back to the food, the Baby Back Ribs (P195.00 PROMO) is tender, of course. However, I find it a bit oily.

Salisbury Steak

Both their Baby Back Ribs, the Salisbury Steak are served with coleslaw. The burger is a bit small, but the taste is not that bad.

The Big Breakfast

Meanwhile, The Big Breakfast has 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, mushrooms, hash brown, toasted bread, butter, and an unlimited brewed coffee or glass of iced tea for only P 310.00. This is so worth it!

Skippy’s Drink

Cranberry Juice

Cranberry Juice (P 100.00) helped me wash down all the food I ate. Their juice is good! Meanwhile, Carol ordered for Four Seasons (P 100.00)

Strawberry Margarita

After eating, they offered us cocktails. I had their Strawberry Margarita (P 230.00). Their Strawberry Margarita is less strong than Chihuahua’s.

Flaming Lambhorgini

After that, they present to us their Flaming Lambhorgini (P450.00) which was shot by Aldous. Thanks for inviting me again, Aldous.

Skippy’s Verdict

From the interiors to the dishes they offer, I absolutely love the ambience of the restaurant, because its appearance is pretty much like what we see in international films. Moreover, I also like places where the bar is located at the center. I’m just really particular with this one, sorry. Their air conditioner is not working properly, but they told us that they are working on it as well as their WiFi connection. In addition, they have different activities each day. We visited the place on a Tuesday so we had an acoustic night! As for the pricing, I’d say that the prices and serving size were well-assessed for the food and serving., I would definitely enjoy the food if I am not on a diet. The servers are all bubbly, I swear.
