Filipino Food You Can Take Out and Bring Home from Sentro 1771

December 24, 2012

I seldom eat in Filipino-themed Restaurants. Probably because I eat Filipino food almost everyday, at home and in the office – served in my reliable Lock-and-Lock lunchbox. Thank you mom for always cooking and preparing my meals. Although I am open to trying out new restaurants – as support to local businesses, and as a way of discovering local cuisines from provinces that I have never visited yet.

If there is one good Filipino Restaurant I would love to visit again and again, it is the Sentro 1771. We always bring our Balikbayan friends here to get reunited with Filipino food. Remember my blog, Balikbayans Love Sentro 1771?

Last week, I got invited to try the Sentro 1771 offerings once again. And yes, I did say Yes.

I am back in the familiar place in Greenbelt 3. What a joy! I almost danced the Tinikling when I get inside the restaurant (just kidding). Now, let’s make the pictures do the talking…

Fried Kesong Puti
The first time I saw it, I thought those were Chicken Nuggets. 
The taste is just so good – chewy, yummy and perfect with the Chili Guava and Garlic Sauce
Php 180.


Sizzling Tofu
It is a fusion of your favorite Sisig and Tokwa’t Baboy (less the pork!).
Yes, a bit healthier. Tossed with mayonnaise and calamansi,
this is perfect as is, or with rice!
Php 250

Fresh Smoked Fish Spring Rolls
This is the first time I am trying it and it surprised me with the fine smoked
fish and flavorful filling inside. Served with vinegar on the side.


Sentro 1771 also offers Salads. Here’s something to try –
Pinoy Beef Tapa Salad
It has fresh green lettuce, tomatoes, onions and slices of tapa
and fillets. The vinaigrette dressing is just perfect. A must-try!


Rated GG (Galungong)
I always love Galunggong, and this one is a sure winner!
The fillets are perfectly fried and toasted in olive oil
topped with toasted garlic!


Tilapia Fillets in Coconut Sauce
I am not really a fan of anything ginataan, but this is something to
order for a change. I love the spice and kick of the coconut sauce!


Yes, we are already in the Main Dishes.. Here’s more..

All time favorite!
Sinigang na Corned Beef
This is the reason why Sentro 1771 became so popular.
The corned beef not the canned good, but real beef meat in salty, sour
Sinigang soup. Sentro 1771 servers would even ask you to taste the soup
to get the perfect asim by your preference before serving it in a pot!
What a real pinoy dining experience. 
Solo: Php 310.00 Sharing: Php 595.00



Lamb Caldereta
Caldereta is my favorite Filipino Food and Sentro 1771 got the perfect recipe
I wanted for my caldereta. The beef is just fine and tender.
The sauce’s taste is something that only my tastebuds can explain. Perfect. 
Php 480.00 – 880.00


Pinoy Osso Bucco
Osso Bucco is an Italian Dish and Sentro 1771 adapted the recipe
and gave it a twist. I haven’t tried the real Osso Bucco but this one is gooood!
Something different from the usual adobo, mechado and menudo.
Php 320


These good Filipino food are best enjoyed with very Filipino drinks
Of course, I had Sago’t Gulaman. 
Something that I cannot buy from the sidewalk vendors in EDSA, 
but I can indulge in at Sentro 1771. I had endless refills!
Php 110 (Bottomless!)

Trivia time! I am sure you already know.. Sentro 1771 is a member of Chateau 1771 Group of Restaurants that include Chateau 1771 in Greenbelt 5, Café 1771, WineBar 1771 and Sidebar at El Pueblo Real de Manila. I was itching to know what was 1771, I found out 1771 is the exact address of of the owners of the restaurant group. That’s why, 1771 is always there.

And I know you are dying to know what I had for desserts.. that’s the next story on my next post..
