Sentro 1771: More Than Just the Basics

I love dining in upscale Filipino restaurants.  Seeing as I'm such a novice in the kitchen, it's great to be able to try local fare prepared by people who really know their stuff.  And the staff behind Sentro 1771 are masters at their craft.

Believe it or not, what first drew me to Sentro 1771 (way back in 2008) was because of my desire for corned beef.  And not just any plain corned beef, mind you.  It was their famous Corned Beef Sinigang that had me a-visiting their Greenbelt branch one fine, workday evening.

Corned Beef in Sinigang?!  I hear you.  It may sound slightly weird, but believe me, it's a combination that works.  No canned corned beef used here, folks.  Since then, I've since had the pleasure of trying that particular dish at least 5 times now.

But aside from their Corned Beef Sinigang, there are other things that also make a visit to Sentro 1771 well worth it.

First on the list is their Lamb Caldereta (Php 480 for a solo serving).  Tender Australian boneless lamb shoulder stewed in a slightly spicy and savory tomato-based broth.  Carrots and bell peppers add to the already succulent flavors.

Next off, we have Sentro 1771's Crispy Pork Ribs (Php440 solo).  Deep-fried baby back ribs served with a sweet and slightly spicy guava-based sauce on the side.  Definitely a dish best eaten with your hands.

The restaurant also offers a wide selection of seafood-based dishes.  Like their Bangus Belly Tocho (Php380 solo).  Bangus belly cooked with black beans, tofu, and tomatoes with a dash of vinegar and soy sauce.  It isn't really much to look at (I, for one, thought it was just plain old sardines), but believe me, it's tastes quite far from it.

Or maybe I'm just a little bit biased here as I sure do love bangus belly!  The sauce gives it a slightly sour and salty taste.

And who could ever forget ordering the crowd (our crowd, anyway J) favorite, Sago't Gulaman (Php110).  Good thing it comes in unlimited servings.  And in this scorching hot Philippine summer, it's just what the doctor ordered.

Old favorites with a modern twist.  Don't you just love how Filipino cuisine just keeps on evolving?  J

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
