Home cooked meals definitely make us happier every time we go home from a very stressful day. However, wouldn’t it be satisfying to taste homemade Filipino dishes with a twist? Sentro 1771, a restaurant in Greenbelt, offers the kind of Filipino cuisine that we have never tasted before. The restaurant presents and cooks Filipino dishes in a different way making it stand out among other Filipino restaurants.
Chateau Group of Restaurants, also known as 1771 Restaurants, all have delicious dishes thanks to Chef Vicky Pacheco. I have personally known her because I was a part of the company before, and I can attest to her big dedication when it comes to improvement. Meanwhile, I was invited by OpenRice Philippines last December 3, 2013 to dine at Sentro 1771.
Garlic Mushrooms with Chicharon P320.00
Garlic is a
B2B Sticks P150.00
I find this dish expensive, but this skewered and grilled organic chicken gizzard is worth the price as it is cooked adobo style and the sticks are really packed.
Macau Chorizo & Cheese Tidbits P240.00
I am a big fan of my mom’s ham & cheese rolls, but these mini spring rolls of Sentro 1771 filled with Macau chorizo and
na Corned Beef P595.00
I’ve heard lots of raves about this dish from Sentro 1771.

Sentro 1771 stuffed it with sauteed onions, tomatoes, miso, and
Vegetables and Salads
Camote Cups P240.00 (4 pieces)
These are well-presented by
Two-Egg Ampalaya Crepe P150.00
Whether you like eating ampalaya or not, it would be a mortal sin not to try this sautéed bitter melon dish. I almost didn’t taste the bitterness because of the egg crepe underneath and the salted duck egg on top.
Fried Suman with Mangoes P180.00
Keso Flan P220.00
When served, it is divided into three: the no-crust cheesecake and flan, the salted egg, and the
Banana Tart P150.00
This one is definitely a tart, but it’s a crispy one because it is a puff pastry with a creamy custard and saba (a kind of banana) on top. The blend of caramel and chocolate sauce on the side is perfect!
Aside from the excellent meal served in Sentro 1771, the establishment has friendly and accommodating staff. The place seems small when you are outside, but I think it can handle up to 100 guests including the tables outside (based on my estimate). It is a perfect place for anyone who is in search
