My friend from the US surprised us three weeks ago as she landed in Manila. She just gotten a new job and she took a few days off before meeting the new boss. Her less than two weeks vacation included meeting and bonding with us, checking the resorts in Tagaytay, flying to Ilocos to check Fort Ilocandia and visiting her relatives in Nueva Ecija. She and her fiance only have less than a year to prepare for a wedding, and they wanted to say their “I do”s here in Manila.
Because of her busy schedule, we only had one day to bond and I promised her that we would have lunch at Sentro 1771. She saw the yummy food pics I posted in Facebook when my sister visited Manila two years ago. We always bring our Balikbayan friends and family members to Sentro 1771 for true Pinoy foodtrip (especially if mom is too busy to cook for the visitors).
So the three lovely ladies (Balikbayan friend, friend who works in hotel and I) went to Sentro 1771 in Greenbelt 3. We were hoping to meet and catch up with a College friend who used to work there, but unfortunately, the dining staff is not familiar with her name. She must have transferred to a new store, or position, or new company. Just the same, we still asked for table for three, carefully chose the food to order, and took some pictures as we eat.
We were still full from the Gapan Spaghetti and Conti’s Mango Bravo cake we had in the hotel, but we ordered:
|I am recycling this old picture I took when we dined in Sentro 1771 because we were to excited about the drink, I forgot to take a picture of it!|
|There goes the Sago’t Gulaman and that nice centerpiece!|
|It does look like Balat ng Lechon, yes? Hehe|
I love coffee and cakes. Put them together, well.. you won’t get a Coffee Pie, but I love it too! Hehe. This one melts in my mouth!
