A homey neighborhood pub, Araullo Gastropub San Juan is a new watering hole in Addition Hills having opened last February 12, 2019. Named after street it’s on, Araullo Gastropub specializes in steak and other comfort food to go with its beer, Cocktails and hard liquor. As a place where you can unwind and get a bit buzzed, it has 4 parking slots and 10 additional slots around the corner.
To grease the pipes, I had a bottle of Mango Street Kombucho Ginger Boost and Tropical Passion (PHP 200). All Mango Street Kombuchas are sweetened with mango. The probiotic drink sped up my metabolism, so I started to sweat within minutes.
One of my obvious favorites is the Chicken and Pancakes (PHP 410). Served with lightly battered fried chicken, the Ube pancakes have this fluffy puto consistency and are layered with Ube halaya.
The Baby Squid (PHP 365) is my next fave. Coated with sweet barbecue sauce, the otherwise savory dish is a great bar chow.
For Ceviche fans, Araullo Gastropub also has the Mackarel Ceviche (PHP 360), topped with calamansi vinaigrette, dragon fruit and salted egg.
Bacon lovers might want to try a Bacon Stick (PHP 95/stick). The grilled bacon slabs are juicy while hot and served with house sauce.
Some heavy hitters are the 650g USDA Beef Ribeye Full (PHP 2,610) and the Tenderloin (PHP 890) on a bed of French beans, sauteed mushrooms and peppercorn sauce.
Served with an Asian sesame salad, the tender yet crispy Beef Short Ribs (PHP 710) have been braised for 8 hours to achieve that fall-off-the-bone texture.
For a sweet ending, the Ube Mont Blanc (PHP 210) is sponge cake generously topped with an ube halaya paste mixed with coconut milk and sugar.
Araullo Gastropub San Juan has a private room with a lounge good for 25 pax. It can be reserved for PHP 15k consumable.
