Sentro 1771 has been delighting diners with their signature modern Filipino dishes like the corned beef sinigang and rated GG for many many years. They recently launched new dishes that stay true to Filipino flavors but combines them in unique ways. We’ve always had problems eating Filipino food because of the single serving size so we’re happy Sentro has introduced different sizes for their dishes, solo for personal meals, sharing for small groups and family for large groups. We can get to have more dishes in the solo sizes now when we visit Sentro 1771.
Fried Kesong Puti (P220/solo, P420/sharing). Local white cheese, breaded and fried to a crisp golden brown and served with sweet chili guava and garlic dips. This a very light and shareable appetizer that will have people popping one after another. I prefer the tangy guava dip to balance the crispness of the batter.
Macau Chorizo and Cheese Tidbits (P190/solo,P380/sharing). Spring rolls filled with minced Macau chorizo and queso de bola, how can you go wrong with these. I popped more than a few of these and think I can finish a whole order all by myself with the sweet and salty, crisp and creamy texture contrasts.
Shrimp Cracker Salad (P350/solo, P550/sharing). Minced shrimps and jicama with lemongrass in lime mayo with shredded lettuce. This was a surprisingly simple yet delicious starter, you can spoon the salad on top of the shrimp cracker for a tostada of sorts or just eat the cracker on the side. The lime mayo give the salad a refreshing creaminess that works really well with the sweet shrimps and the crisp jicama.
Seafood Laing (P300/solo, P580/sharing). Laing is one of my favorite vegetable dishes, not particularly nice visually but crazy good in taste. Sentro one ups their classic laing with the addition of garlic shrimps, fried hito flakes and grilled squid. Mix in the hito flakes before serving to get a nice crunch.
Bangus Pandan (P300/solo, P560/sharing, P835/family). Bangus/milkfish stuffed with miso paste, tomatoes and malunggay then tied with pandan. The fish is then grilled to a nice char and served with a wedge of lemon.
Garlic Steak (P450/solo, P860/sharing). Marinated top blade top with generous amounts of toasted garlic and garlic butter.
Boneless Crispy Trotter (P695). Deboned crispy pata, perfect for people like me who carving up the pata to get the tasty bits.
Corned Beef Sinigang (P640). This is Sentro 1771’s signature dish, tamarind broth with corned beef chunks. A comforting dish perfect for the rainy season.
Sago’t Gulaman (P150). I suggest getting this classic, refreshing drink to pair with your dishes. Bonus, it’s bottomless also.
