When in Manila, Sentro 1771 is one of the pioneers in concocting original Modern Filipino cuisine. It began in 2002 when Executive Chef Vicky Pacheco brought Filipino cuisine to the next level by presenting local dishes in a chic and elegant setting, combining Swiss and French techniques with familiar Filipino flavors. If you want a taste of modern Filipino dishes with a touch of lux, pay Sentro 1771 a visit.

Sentro 1771’s well-loved dish is the innovative Corned Beef Sinigang. Since time immemorial, people lined up to have a taste of this dish. This is one of the pivotal dishes that fired up the imaginations of chefs around the country and started a new trend in contemporary Filipino restaurants.
The Corned Beef Sinigang contained corned beef short ribs and boneless shanks cooked in tamarind broth. Native vegetables like eggplant, string beans, and bokchoy. Sinigang is a well-loved Pinoy dish and we even have many variations of this dish. To date, the Corned Beef Sinigang is the most innovative for me.

Asian in origin with an appealing Filipino flavor, the Duck Pancakes are a must-order when looking for an alternative to pork or beef. Strips of native duck slow-cooked in beer, rhum vinegar, soy sauce, and muscovado sugar are tucked into Chinese pancake pockets and served on soup spoons. This is a perfect starter – sweet and succulent.
