My Top Faves At Sentro 1771

Sentro 1771 is one of the restaurants that promotes Filipino cuisine. It has been around for a long time and is a nice place to treat Balikbayans or anytime that you're craving for good ol' Filipino comfort food.




Their branch in Serendra is one of the pioneers in that area and is quite spacious. It is also very easy to find as it is just across Fully Booked (daughter's happy place). I love the open kitchen, too as I find it interesting to watch how the food is being prepared.


The following are my top 6 (+1 since I can't decide which dessert I love best) favorites at Sentro 1771:

Spring Rolls with Chorizo Bits. I am not really fond of chorizo but this one changed my mind. I love its un-chorizo tastes! Haha. Kidding aside, this is really a great appetizer and I love the way it is presented. And if you're wondering about the "newspaper", they had it specially printed and it also absorbs the excess oil- not that its oily, mind you. No need to worry about ink seeping into your food. ;)


Corned Beef Sinigang. Do I really say why I love this? Hmmm ... I love sinigang and the corned beef twist is what made it special. Did I mention that they cure their own corned beef? Shhhh, that's a secret!


Lamb Caldereta. Another favorite. Daughter loves this, too. Meat is very tender and flavorful but not overly spicy. Extra rice please!


Seafood Fried Rice. This is similar to the Thai fried rice and is a meal by itself. Very generous toppings also. Thumbs up! Super huge serving, good for 3-4 pax.


Camote Cups. Because I love my veggies and this greatly reminds me of my "nanay's" lumpiang hubad including the dipping sauce. I had a Ratatouille moment.


Quezo Flan. Don't expect this to be sweet because its not. To eat this, you have to get the flan, then top it with egg and cheese then eat. Oh-la-la ...


Suman with Mangoes. Okay. I love suman with mangoes. And that's coconut syrup. Yummers!

  1. Oh my! I love their sinigang as well and their osso bucco(though I don't know if they still have this). It has been ages since we ate here.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.
