Relik Tapas: More Than a Bar

Relik Tapas and Bar sounds like ‘something old‘. But if you’ve been there, you’d pleasantly know why it was named such. The red bricks and classic furniture lend that relic and cozy feel.

Relik is not that easy to find, actually. You would extend an extra effort to find it at the second floor of Commercenter Bldg at the corner of 31st avenue and 4th street in Bonifacio Global City amidst all other restaurants visually competing for attention on the street. On the other hand, the restaurant has been getting the raves as a cool hangout place. With the good interiors and atmosphere, I am not surprised.

But this story is not about Relik as a bar. More than that, Relik offers good food.

Together with some foodie friends, we got to experience a mix of Spanish-Mexican tapas-inspired dinner the other day.

Let me share with you those I met that night:

Tasting Board

Tasting Board (P490) - Boneless “Diego Martin”. Chorizo Pamplona, Stuffed “Serpis” Spanish olives and Manchego

Benny’s Certified Angus Ribeye

Benny’s Certified Angus Ribeye (P1150) - a 300g rib eye served with a burnt butter sauce

Relik's Mixed Paella

Relik's Mixed Paella (P820) - serves 8 and is ordered a day in advance

Vanilla and Amaretto Panacotta

Vanilla and Amaretto Panacotta (P160) - cooked cream with a berry compote

If your saliva dripped over those photos, there’s more.

And these are the ones you should not miss and I recommend:

Baked Australian Brie (P530) [Top Photo] – creamy Yarra Valley Brie wrapped in jamon and lightly glazed with honey.


Chorizig (P295) - chorizo bits topped over with Filipino favorite - sisig


Quesadillas - served with guacamole and tomato salsa. Choice of garlic shrimp, pulled pork, BBQ chicken fillings

Mother Ann’s Braised Ox-Tail

Mother Ann’s Braised Ox-Tail (P450) - slow braised Australian ox- tails served with pomme puree and buttered carrots

Mussels and Chrorizo

Mussels and Chorizo (P330) - green mussels sautéed in garlic cream and Spanish chorizo

Roasted Bone-Marrow

Roasted Bone-Marrow (P290) - topped with gremolata, served with caramelized onions and crunchy bread

I’d also have to give Relic for being able to serve bone-marrow. It’s not a common dish in a restaurant.

Relik is open Monday to Friday from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm – 4:00 am; Saturday to Sunday 5:00 pm – 4:00 am.
