Weekend Food Trip at: Sentro 1771

The last time I was at Sentro was with a dear Malaysian blogger friends Lisa and Alex (post HERE).  I didn't get to go back as I wasn't out much anyways!  *laughs*  

When my college friends have decided to meet up before me and my other friend Charmie pop (yes! 2 pregnant ladies in the house!)  it was a quick decision to dine at Sentro because we had quite fun memories hanging inside this restaurant for the past years!  

What's new at Sentro?  Unfortunately, that night, the air conditioner wasn't working well so I was sweating like a pig!  Thankfully, food tastes great!

Squash Soup
Php90.00 (approx $2.50)
A chunky vegetable puree soup of squash.
I've had better Squash soup in other restaurants, it's not because the soup wasn't made right but the squash used isn't that sweet.  So far, I'm still happy with this order as I was awfully craving for a thick and creamy soup that night!

Adobong KangKong
Php80.00 (approx $2.00)
Water spinach braised and stewed in vinegar 
This was consistently good as well!  Spinach is still crunchy and the added crispy garlic bits made this dish a delightful appetizer!  Of course, this is also perfect with rice!

Vegetable Spring Rolls
Php250.00 (approx $6.25)
Deep-fried spring rolls stuffed with Baguio beans, cabbage, 
carrots, sweet potato, onions and squash
This was my friend's order and since I was looking at it like I'm ready to devour it, she delightfully offered me to try her dish and I love it!  I'm a fan of vegetable spring rolls and this gave a refreshing taste to the usual spring rolls I've tried.  Very light on the tummy and the vinegar is just right for that extra kick.

Sinigang na Corned Beef
 Solo Php310.00 (approx $7.20)
Sharing Php595.00 (approx $13.90)
 Corned beef short ribs and boneless shanks in tamarind broth with native vegetables
This dish will always be present if we dine at Sentro!  The unlimited soup is a huge plus as I'm a soup lover!  The corned beef is consistently tender and tasty!  Must try!

Fried Chicken Cutlets
Solo: Php350.00 (approx $8.75)
Tender chicken breast coated with breadcrumbs and 
deep-fried until golden brown; served with sweet chili sauce
I didn't get to taste this that night as I was trying to prevent possible allergies!  Mr. AMW told me the chicken strips is indeed very tender and I can see it on his every bite!  Will definitely give this a try once I'm done giving birth and I can happily plop my anti-histamines!

Stir Fried Noodles and Vegetables
Solo Php280.00 (approx $7.00)
Plump glass noodles, cabbage, carrots, and Baguio Beans, shrimps and chicken.
Hubby was craving for something unique and different and I'm not sure how he ended up with noodle dish but he quite liked the taste.  It is indeed different from most stir fried noodles dish we have (mostly from Chinese restaurants) so this is such a refreshing taste of thick fat noodles with ample amount of chicken bits. I hope they could add more of the glass noodles though!

As with every visit, service was good, the servers were all pretty helpful no matter how busy the place is!  The restaurant accepts both cash and credit card payments.
