@SENTRO 1850: All time favorite
To date, Sentro 1850 along Velez St. is probably our all time favorite restaurant. We have our individual favorites, and like Dad would always say after a sumptuous meal, every peso spent here is worth it! Here is a quick rundown of these favorites (and they’re probably what the owner remembers us ordering all the time :p):
Our favorite salad or palate cleanser is the Harvest Salad, because it’s light, and quite refreshing. It has slices of fruit that’s in season, walnuts, and feta cheese. The lemon dressing makes for “guilt-free” helpings of this dish.
The Balinese swordfish is actually my favorite. The fish is grilled perfectly and it gives one a feeling of eating a good slab of meat. Not only is it quite filling, the ginger-based sauce gives it a nice kick that will make you want more. I will have this dish any time of the week and not grow tired of it!
The baby back ribs is probably Sentro’s bestseller. It’s a BIG slab of ribs, and unlike all other baby back rib dishes in the city, Sentro makes it so that a simple nudge of your fork causes the meat to slide away from the bone, all aroma released. It is THAT tender and delicious!
Go generous on the cranberry-red wine sauce and forget yourself momentarily!
The spaghetti is an absolute favorite of the kids. Big serving, but so easy on the palate. It must be the exceptional pasta, or the heavenly sauce.
So there you have it. We’ve been dining here for years but we really haven’t tried the other items on the menu. We’ll make sure to post a review as soon as we’ve tried the steaks, pasta, etc. Here is more information about the restaurant, which I picked up from post of a local blogger, Rosanna Lim:
