Seared snapper, braised pork cheek and sous vide beef short rib. .
|
The execution of the fish was perfect. Nice crisp skin and flaky meat. BUT this hundred years old recipe was something I won’t try again. Overpowering cinnamon and sour sauce. 😱😱😱
.
|
I forgot about the name of the green “four leafs clover”. But the balance in the flavors were great. Savory pork, sweet potato and spicy clover. Insanely good. .
|
Sous vide Beef rib should be great. However one deadly downfall, it is way too saltyyyyyyy. .
|
Gallery VASK got their inspiration from local ingredients and local recipes but with a twist.

|
Kinilaw, Sauté Squid, freshwater shrimp and braised curry banana heart. .
|
Some dish didn’t totally made sense but some blown my mind. .
|
FIRST, the sauté squid filled with “wok hei” but it didn’t seem sauté at all! Soft tender squid clothed with savory smokey sauce. The technique and presentation and taste 💯. .
|
SECOND, instead of using mixing in the local fruit (tabon-tabon fruit), vinegar and coconut milk. They aged the tuna with kombu then topped with “kinilaw” sauce.

|
Last meal served in this kitchen. They will close their restaurant for mini renovation. .
|
Mini Pandesal, Wagyu Cracker with sour sauce, salted egg prawn, steamed chicken soup with umi sauce and seaweed, purple rice cracker with smoked mackerel, mustard leaf wrap. .
|
All of the starters had a contrast of texture. Interesting flavors based on traditional Filipino cuisine (Sour + Savory).

|
Braised mellow, grilled pork belly and deep fried sardines. .
|
Even though many ordered the belly, I didn’t really like it as the strong seasoning wasn’t connect with my palate. The mellow and fish were great. The mellow was so good that I ordered a second (sweet mellow + savory pork = perfection). They fried the sardine till crisp. So crispy that even it’s fin can be eaten. .
|
If you don’t mind a little run down but super fresh ingredients, this is the place for you. .

If you are looking for a quiet place to read and enjoy the aroma of coffee, this hidden cafe is great. Do take note that they only have 15 seater so visit at your own risk. 😊

Tentant Manila .
| 🏠: 9639 Kamagong Street, Makati, Manila.

.
|
Ranked one of the best in Philippine by World Street Food Congress. Strongly seasoned by garlic. The skin stayed crispy even leave open for hours. Must try with their in house chili sauce. The strong acidic sauce balanced with the fatty-ness. .
|
One downfall was the store was so hidden. Upstairs of a petrol station! Even with google map, it took me awhile to look for the sign. .
|

Wide range of variety and attentive service crew. Their roasted meat was a little let down but other cooked food made up for it. In house made creep with apple sauce and topped with molten chocolate. Happy days.

|
.
Total damage: rib (P250), “Lobster” ball (P200), Stewed Veg, Pork Soup And rice (P280) and Lemon Grass Drink (P50) .
|
Located right at the central of their CBD. Filled with energetic stall owners and smoke of BBQ. .
|
The local loved to visit the Malay stall, Korean Kimchi stall, BBQ Chicken stall, Pad Thai stall and their local “mixed” rice stall.
.
|
I loved the variety but their pricing at this area isn’t “cheap”. Highly recommend their BBQ chicken because I saw the Chef chopping up the chicken. Even the chicken breast was dripping with its juices. Something I Learnt at Philippine Food. Their SEASONING is NOT light. .

Plates and plates of fried rice flying out from the kitchen but my craving fixed my eye onto one dish in the menu! Japanese Curry Rice! .
|
Big pieces of veg still visible in the slow stewed curry and releasing an aroma of spicy goodness. I don’t understand why it is so hard to find a decent Curry rice but this place is gooood. The pork was rather over fried but overall I loved it. .
|
Quick service. Busy lunch spot. A little confusing menu as I don’t know it is serving Taiwanese or Japanese food. .

🏠: 11 Unity St #01-14/15 ⏰: 1100H to 1400H, 1700H to 2200H. Closed on Sunday

A brave new gen used her grandmom braised duck recipe and opened this stall at lau Pa Sat (鸡同鸭讲). .
|
The base of the braised sauce was great. Good balance of sweet and herby flavor. The meat didn’t taste fatty. Maybe because of the rental, the portion was lesser than expected. .
|
Conclusion: Worth a visit. .
|
🏠: 鸡同鸭讲 at Lau Pa Sat.

|
So the story go like this.
Me: I rarely find a stall which only sell chendol.
Auntie: Because the owner got another businesses. This place is just to show case the product.
Me: wah. 🤑
.
|
I really like this chendol as every component did its part. The sweetness was just right as it didn’t leave the palate tasting sour. The hint of saltiness in the coconut and gula melaka were great.

|
$8 a bowl of Unagi Don. The flavors were on the sweet side which made it easy to eat. Couldn’t taste the fattiness of the fish but expectation need adjusted as the price was pretty affordable. .
|
I would recommend their curry fried chicken rice and mentaiko sushi roll. Not a bad eat.
