KRAZY GARLIK Revisited: What’s Yummy Now @KrazyGarlikPH x Chef Josh Boutwood? (Video)

(Watch this video about KRAZY GARLIK by Chef Josh Boutwood @KrazyGarlikPH)


KRAZY GARLIK is a homegrown garlic-themed restaurant by The Bistro Group. They recently refreshed their concept with Executive Chef Josh Boutwood.   

Krazy Garlik is all about garlic. And we conceptualized this concept back in 2011 to showcase the versatility of the ingredient, garlic, itself.

So in 2015, we rebranded Krazy Garlik to a new look. We made it a little more hip, a little bit modern. We’ve gone away with the fairytale lines and we’ve created some clean slate lines to the restaurant. This improves the overall ambiance and also improves the dining experience within Krazy Garlik.” – Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

The new menu could be overwhelming, but you can start with their signature dishes in the Garlic Love section



Garlik Snowflakes (P525 +10% service charge). House special with a creamy base, topped with shrimps, pineapple, and garlic flakes. 

Garlik Snowflakes Pizza is a pizza with a white cream crust topped with prawns, pineapple, and crispy garlic flakes.” – Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

Start with the garlic pizza to open your palate for the next garlic dishes to come.

Spinach and Cream (P245 +10% service charge). Deep-fried wanton wrapper stuffed with spinach and cream cheese, served with tomato salsa. 

Order this if you want to impress your date. The wrapper is crunchy with a generous portion of spinach and cream cheese.

12″ of Garlik (P195 +10% service charge). 12-inch garlic bread topped with bacon bits and parmesan cheese. 

Another option for starters is this bruschetta topped with garlic, parmesan cheese, and bacon bits to provide a salty crunch.


Amazing Krazy Garlik Salad (P495 +10% service charge). Cucumber, bell peppers, onions, and oriental chicken strips tossed in sesame lime dressing, topped with fried wanton and peanut sauce.

The Amazing Krazy Garlik Salad is freshly grilled chicken with cilantro-lime dressing and peanut glaze.” – Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

This is a good salad starter for a clean and healthy appetizer that is also good to share while you wait for the food. 




Garlicky Crispy Pata (P695 +10% service charge). Deep-fried, crispy port hock, topped with garlic bits and chili.

Garlicky Crispy Pata, a fantastically deep-fried pork hock infused with lots of garlic, served with the traditional soy sauce and Kimchi.“- Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

All the things you love about the Filipino Crispy Pata–crispy skin and juicy meat plus lots of garlic bits and chili. 


Oxtail and Chorizo Stew (P675 +10% service charge). Simmered with tomatoes, Spanish chorizo, and roasted garlic.

Oxtail & Chorizo Stew combines such great savory flavors and pairs so well with garlic.“- Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

There’s a lot of flavor in the sauce enhanced with the roasted garlic. You can’t help but eat this with rice. 


Flavors of the Sea in the Bag (P1,195 +10% service charge) Shareable. A krazy mix of seasonal seafood with your choice of savory sauces. Served in a bag. 

Seafood in a Bag, one of our new items that we’ve recently launched and is a mix of seafood, which you can pair with our multiple sauces.” – Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

I like getting the seafood from the bag, licking off the sauce from the shell and your hands, then finally scooping out the meat.


40 Gloves Chicken (P495 +10% service charge). Chicken thigh and leg quarters marinated in 40 garlic cloves, served on a bed of garlic cream sauce

40 Cloves Chicken is deep-fried served with an intense garlic flavor.” – Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

Just the way I like my fried chicken–with lots of garlic!

For the best experience, you can squeeze out some fresh garlic…

…grate them on the jagged edges of the plate, then mix with the chicken meat before eating it.

30 Kloves Sirloin (P695 +10% service charge). Aged sirloin rubbed with garlic, served with roasted garlic bulb.

For steak and garlic loves, this won’t disappoint. The sirloin is served with a mini cleaver cutting through it. 


Krazy Garlik-22-2.jpg

Ask to cook it Medium Rare or Medium so that it has that right tenderness when you bite into it.


Krazy Garlik-11-2.jpg
Hara Kiri Rice (P375 +10% service charge). Spicy fried rice with chilies, chopped shrimps, and bacon.  

This is Krazy Garlik’s signature fried rice with flavors of shrimp and bacon bits that match well with the garlicky dishes.

Ask for their tray of sauces to add more flavor. But the food itself is already tasty as it is.



Charlie’s Chocolate (P250 +10% service charge). Chocolate ice cream on a bed of chocolate crumbs and chocolate sponge cake. Served with meringue mushroom.

Charlie’s Chocolate, one of the desserts, which are fantastic for ending a meal–basically 100% chocolate.” – Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

You won’t expect these kinds of creative desserts at Krazy Garlik. This chocolate dessert is a must-try after eating all that garlic!


Krazy Garlik-24-2.jpg
“Cheese” Cake (P295 +10% service charge). Classic baked New York cheesecake served with crunchy graham crackers and fresh mango.  

The cheesecake is creamy, smooth, and heavy like a classic NY cheesecake. I love the mousetrap presentation. 🙂


Krazy Garlik-29.jpg
Baked Alaska (P195 +10% service charge). Cold chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream encased in hot meringue (please allow 15 minutes to serve).

Ending the meal with ice cream is a great way to cleanse the garlic taste from your palate. 


Krazy Garlik-28-2.jpg
Crema Catalana (P150 +10% service charge). Spanish-style creme brulée with a twist, topped with roasted candied garlic.

Love this caramelized garlic on top of a crispy sugar crust and smooth creme dessert.

Creating dishes for Krazy Garlik is not an easy task, but we were able to…because of the name Krazy, we’re able to test as many things we want to see if it fits into the concept. With that said, you know, we can take inspiration from all corners of the world, and combine them into dishes that really are Krazy and have the influence of garlic inside them.“- Chef Josh Boutwood on Krazy Garlik

A great place to eat with friends for something different, or with your balikbayan or tourist friends who are looking for something local but with an interesting concept.

Just make sure to brush your teeth afterwards or have some strong breath fresheners to remove the garlic breath. 🙂


A dining destination that glorifies the taste of garlic. Krazy Garlik brings together the best garlic recipes from around the world. Paired with a delightful drink, it will leave diners wanting for more. It is a dining adventure like no other.
