Time for an intermission from our Aussie trip 🙂 As much as I’m enjoying all the good food here—my tastebuds have been hankering for something Pinoy. Then I remembered our group date two Sundays ago to Sentro—napa-Throwback Thursday tuloy ako! At syempre pagkain pa ulit, hehehe 🙂 Sentro invited me and my friends to try out their new menu and they certainly made this barkada very, very, very pleased. This will be a quick post so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Oh and let me give you a rundown of the stuff we ordered too so you’ll have a guide for your next visit to Sentro.
Fried Kesong Puti Balls– Ok, so this was not part of the new menu. I actually requested for this because it’s my ultimate Sentro favorite. For my next birthday I will have a Fried Kesong Puti Balls party!!! Abangan niyo na!
Duck Pancakes– Here’s the whole truth: I am not really a big “duck” fan (except for the Mighty Ducks! Hellooooo. Emilio Estevez was just purely awesome. Quack, Quack, Quack!). I’ll have a bite of peking duck just to try it but I wouldn’t go gaga over it like my dad—that fella needs to go to Peking Duck rehab, he has a serious addiction that should be addressed. I will save that for another post. But anyway, this appetizer really surprised me. I LOVED IT!!!!!
Macau Chorizo and Cheese Tidbits- In the words of my pareng Joey Ramirez, “KAGULO ‘TO BRO”. There, that should be enough to convince you. He used BRO. And you know when a BRO uses BRO, then that should count for something.
Sinigang na Corned Beef– A classic. A must have. Each table must have at least one order of this. Do not even set foot in this restaurant if you don’t plan to order their Sinigang. Mahiya ka sa Sinigang..BRO…mahiya kaaaaaa…
Camote Cups and Vegetarian Red Rice– Order these two dishes for your veggie loving friends. I love that more and more restaurants are providing options for Vegetarians. The Camote Cups are so elegantly plated, you’ll want to foodstagram it before wrecking it with your utensils. The Vegetarian Red Rice is a colorful medley of flavors, the red rice is moist and not grainy–which I love 🙂
Fish of the day Pandan– If you’re trying to avoid meat and want something light but tasty, then this fish dish should be your wish. Fish, Dish, Wish, I’m a poet. 🙂 Drizzled with some lemon and wow, you’ve got a winner!
Chicken Adobo sa Gata– A bizzaare combo that actually works. Something for those looking for a twist to the classic chicken adobo. This is the type of ulam you’d like to take home and save for a rainy day.
Seafood Bagoong Rice– I love bagoong. Bagoong works with anything and immediately increases your appetite. Instead of giving your kids those appetite pills, just feed them bagoong 3x a day! Hahaha! This Bagoong Rice is actually a stand alone dish but works well to also complement your favorite fish ulams in the menu.
And of course, to complete the SENTRO experience..you have to order their dessert trifecta: Banana Camote Uncue, Keso Flan, Banana Tart. Keso Flan, mahal na mahal na mahal kita!!!
Thank you again so much to the awesome team behind SENTRO. Each time I get an invite from this restaurant, I move heaven and earth just to make time for them. It’s always such a pleasure dining in this proudly Pinoy resto 🙂 And thanks to Joey, Sitti, Dip, Weng and Lucas for joining us for dinner.
