I’m Now a Believer: Sentro 1771’s Sinigang na Corned Beef

When we say “famous Filipino food”, Sinigang always makes it on the list. In fact, it comes with varieties such as Sinigang na Baboy (Pork), Sinigang na Bangus (Milkfish), Sinigang sa Miso, and Sinigang sa Sampaloc (Tamarind). But did you know that there’s this one variety of Sinigang that Sentro 1771 is famous for?

Meet Sentro 1771’s Sinigang na Corned Beef

According to Sentro 1771’s menu, “You’ve got to try it to believe it!”. The restaurant offers wide array of mouth-watering Filipino dishes, but their specialty—Sinigang na Corned Beef—is known for bringing the Pinoy cuisine to the next level.

Other than adding a twist to the familiar flavor, it is also a combination of two dishes that Filipinos love: Sinigang and Corned Beef. And come to think of it, who would have thought that they could become a perfect combination?

What Makes it the Best Sinigang in Town?

If it will be your first time at Sentro 1771, I must warn you that Sinigang na Corned Beef doesn’t come in cheap as it is priced at PHP 595. The good thing about this, though, is that it’s good for sharing. Plus, this dish is definitely worth the price. Add to that the superb dining experience you’ll never forget.

What I really appreciate in this restaurant is that they’ll offer you a cup of the Sinigang broth for taste-testing. Then you can request to adjust its sourness to your liking. Cool, no?

Instead of the typical Corned Beef in a can, Sentro 1771’s specialty comes with natural Tamarind broth, native vegetables and boneless beef shanks. While the beef hamstrings could give my mother a heart attack, the meat was very tender and easy to chew. In addition, the broth comes with the natural asim-kilig that only the Tamarind can offer. You can say that it’s fruitier than the Sinigang Mix available at grocery stores. Not to mention that its sourness has the power to boost your appetite.

As usual, I ignored the vegetables except for Kangkong (Water Spinach). Nevertheless, I ended up rubbing my happy tummy after enjoying the Sinigang na Corned Beef. And, seriously, all I can say is that Sentro 1771’s Sinigang na Corned Beef is the best Sinigang in town!
