Finally went to Cork & Screw with friends over the holidays. It’s a popular bar located in Plaza Indonesia Mall.
We decided to order a carafe because the cocktails are Rp 105,000 per glass – that’s about 10 USD or 500 pesos without the 21% tax and service charge! CRAZY! In Manila that would buy you 3-4 cocktails depending on where you are drinking! A carafe is IDR 250,000 but as usual in most of the bars here, there is more fruit than alcohol. It’s feels more like a health drink haha!
The Sangria was strong, but seriously it had too much fruit in it! Which obviously means that there is less to drink! Oh well… this is the reason that TD and I don’t go out to drink as much as we did in Manila… the sin tax makes it waaaay too expensive!
I have to say though, that they are so much more creative with their presentation here. I guess they should be! (Considering it’s $10++ a pop !) It’s a good place to take guest for a few drinks since it is quite an experience!
The waiter pours the liquid slowly till the cotton candy completely dissolves into the drink. My friend was pleasantly surprised that the drink wasn’t too sweet.
