Heavily used in Asian, European, and African cuisines, garlic is a small but magical wonder of nature that can make just about anything taste and smell better.
If you’re addicted to the sweet, spicy, and pungent flavors of garlic and you like putting it in everything you eat, there’s a restaurant in Metro Manila that’s just as obsessed as you are!
Krazy Garlik proves that garlic isn’t just for garlic bread
While garlic bread is as creative as most of us can get with garlic, Krazy Garlik goes way out of the box to incorporate it into almost all of their dishes–even dessert! From their appetizers down to their sweet treats, you can expect every spoonful to be crazy rich and flavorful.
Combining international recipes from various parts of the world to form one eclectic menu, you’ll find that garlic takes on many different forms and flavors in this restaurant.
It’s chopped up into bits and used as topping, roasted and simmered as part of a stew, or pureed and served as a side dish. Sometimes, it’s made to exude a dominant robust flavor and other times a sweet and gentle aftertaste.
Find new Tasty Twists on Krazy Garlik’s menu
Aside from using garlic in a ton of unheard-of ways, this restaurant is also fond of putting delicious spins on well-known dishes. And they’ve shown just how inventive they can be by adding a whole new lineup of quirky entrees on the menu! Called Tasty Twists, it’s a selection of popular Filipino and Asian fare cooked with a Krazy Garlik twist.
Instead of the typical salad made up of leafy greens, you can start your meal with their Krazy Wild Blooms. This Ilocandia-inspired appetizer combines banana blossoms with the unmistakable flavor of garlic.
For your serving of protein, you can order up a plate of their Pumpkin Ala Bagnet. While bagnet is usually plated on its own, Krazy Garlik serves their crispy pork belly alongside sauteed shrimp on top of a bed of greens and special pumpkin sauce!
The Creamy Beef Rendang is another meaty dish you can indulge in, made up of tender beef cubes simmered in spicy coconut cream broth (in Asian countries, rendang is typically served sans the soup!)
If that’s not enough for you, you can get yourself the El Callos Capitan too, Krazy Garlik’s own version of the popular Spanish callos dish.
If you’re a seafood lover, Krazy Garlik didn’t forget about you! The Shrimp Diablo, a bag of shrimps drizzled in spicy black pepper sauce, will have you licking your fingers for more, while the Souper Dapper Sinigang, a bowl of salmon head simmered in fermented soybean sauce, will have you pulling your best sour face.
Other new fish entrees are the Ilocaloco, a seafood version of the Filipino pakbet, and the XO Tilapia, deep-fried fish tossed in their homemade XO sauce.
If you think you still have stomach room left to spare after all of that, you can order up the Krazy Garlik classics too! One of their most garlicky entrees is their signature 40 Kloves Chicken, an entree of chicken thigh and leg quarters marinated in forty garlic cloves and served on a bed of special garlic cream sauce.
Other garlicky favorites here are the Garlicky Crispy Pata, deep-fried crispy pork hock topped with garlic bits and chili, and the 30 Kloves Sirloin, aged sirloin rubbed with garlic and served with roasted garlic puree.
For a garlic-infused dessert, they have the Hola Crema Catalana, Spanish creme brulee embellished with candied roasted garlic!
