The Pig in the Sea: an Asian Restaurant in BF Homes, Paranaque

There’s a newest restaurant in BF Homes that you should definitely try! The Pig in the Sea offers a fusion of pork and seafood into their dishes which make them really unique. Believe me, I’ve never tasted anything like these before.

The Pig in the Sea

Though it was my first time in BF Homes, Paranaque, I’ve known it as the Maginhawa of the South because of the many restaurants there. Together with Gerald, RJ and Aaron, we visited BF Homes to try the newest restaurant called The Pig in the Sea.

The place feels cozy and perfect for intimate bondings. The interior looks good as well, very perfect for us millenials, since it is very instagrammable!

Fusion of Pork and Seafood

The Pig in the Sea is an Asian restaurant that specializes in pork and seafood. We tried the dishes that are considered the favorites by the first people who visited the restaurant.

Main Dishes

The Pig in the Sea Seafood Surprise
Seafood Surprise (Php 350)
I could be biased because I love seafood so much, but this one’s really good! This is the first dish I tried and I already can’t explain how it tastes like. It’s something I can’t compare to anything because it tastes differently good! You should definitely try this and taste for yourself! Hehe

The Pig in the Sea Bola Bola Meatballs
Bola Bola Meatballs (Php 250)
We were told that there’s a specific way on how to eat this. First, you have to grab Wonton Crisps, spread the garlic sauce over it, put the meatball on top, then eat it. I’m telling you, it’s the best meatballs I’ve ever had so far!

The Pig in the Sea Pork 2 Ways
Pork 2 Ways (Php 295)
This is Gerald’s favorite among the dishes and you can trust him when it comes to food. Haha! The sauce itself is already perfect but I’ll tell you a better way to enjoy it. Take a piece of the pork cheeks and the spareribs then dip it on the carrot puree then eat them all together. Try it and you’ll be mindblown.

The Pig in the Sea Rice
For the rice, there’s nothing special, I must say. But we were served an off-the-menu rice that was really good! And yes, they might give you something that’s not on the menu. How cool is that? :)


We also tried their desserts and as if the main dishes are not enough to give us a different experience, these desserts are also surprisingly good!

The Pig in the Sea Peanut Ice Cream
Peanut Ice Cream (Php 95)
I am not a fan of peanuts but I’m glad I tried this because it was really good! It tastes like sansrival with salted caramel, if that even makes sense. Haha. It’s not too sweet so that’s a plus for me who has very weak tonsils. Haha.

The Pig in the Sea Ube Bread Pudding
Ube Bread Pudding (Php 95)
This one tastes like a bibingka, but on a different level. Haha. I’m not a fan of kakanins or bread so this is just okay for me. But still, it’s a different kind of dessert that I’ve never seen before. Gerald liked it, though!

Here’s a copy of their menu for your reference. I hope they would also design their menu to match their branding.

The servings are good for sharing, though it might still would depend on your appetite. Hehe. For the price, I consider it affordable because the quality of the food is really high-class! I tried my best to describe all these but believe me, it’s really different. It’s better to try them yourself! :)

    I’ve never been a fan of seafood but I’m glad they seem to have many meat dishes – especially eyeing the meatballs!
