Madrid Fusion series:

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaThe demo was held at Sarsa Kitchen + Bar, Mall of Asia last Thursday April 16.

SARSA by Chef JP Anglo is making waves in the competitive dining scene, providing Filipino and Negrense Food with contemporary touches while using the best local ingredients.

Check out our previous review of Sarsa:

Sarsa prepared delectable dishes and popular Filipino Street Food…

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaWe liked the Pritson (Fried Lechon) Pancake with hoisin sauce, which we find is the Filipino version of the traditional Chinese peking duck pancake. Php 270

Madrid Fusion Manila: Sarsa I liked the unhealthy crunchy and chewy Panit (Chicken skin). 🙂 Php 170

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaWe love the Bacoleño version of isaw (chicken intestines) called tina-e brushed with achuete oil, we find it a much cleaner way of eating chicken intestines as they are cleaned inside out. Be sure to try it with the local vinegar called langaw. Php 165

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaYou should try the healthy inasal tofu brushed with achuete oil. Namit (delicious)! Php170

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaBut what everyone was anticipating for, is the demonstration from these four renowned chefs.

Madrid Fusion Manila: Sarsa
Our first chef is Chef Bruce Ricketts of the absurdly delicious chef driven restaurant Mecha Uma. He is also known to be one of the youngest chefs in Manila, and owes much of his understanding and appreciation of ingredients to his mentor, Jason Kribb

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaChef Bruce Ricketts showed us how he prepared his Seared Prawns with Marinated Saba, Avocado and Burnt Coconut Vinegar.

He took advantage of our abundant supply of suahe (white shrimp), which is one of the favorite ingredients in the international scene, by using it  as a main ingredient in his dish.

Sarap! It had the right tangy flavor from the vinegar and the sweetness and creaminess from the avocado, without overpowering the shrimp.

Madrid Fusion Manila: Sarsa
Celebrity Chef Rob Pengson is known for his rebellious and inventive style of cooking in the degustation restaurant The Goose Station.

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaChef Rob Pengson’s Mango Tapioca Surprise, is an easy dessert to make using our mouth-watering Guimaras mangoes . The dessert was a yummy guilt-free treat using fresh mangoes, silken tofu, sago, fried lumpia wrapper, red rice and milk.

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaOur next chef is known for his Kapampangan cuisine, Chef Claude Tayag bringing the most popular Filipino dish pork adobo, with his version of Adobo ni Juan Tamad and Adobong Puti.

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaAdobo ni Juan Tamad is prepared by boiling all the ingredients (slow-cooked pork with garlic, vinegar, soy sauce and pepper) and serving it right away. Taste just like home!

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaThe Adobo Puti is the classical way of serving adobo. It is prepared using patis (fish sauce), braised with its own juice and a cup of water until the meat becomes tender.

Chef Tayag insists that you don’t serve adobo the same hour as it is cooked. Instead, let it marinate for a day to bring out the perfect adobo flavor.

To round up the demo Chef Jayp Anglo from Sarsa prepares his unique dish Bangus Spring Rolls with Talangka Vinegar and Batikulon Mang Tomas Sauce.

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaWe liked how he used his Negrense heritage and used local ingredients to create his flavorful sauces.

Madrid Fusion Manila: SarsaWe are proud with our chefs artful skill in creating wonderful meals, it is such a delight to know that the Philippines has so much excellence to offer in the culinary world. We can’t wait for more at this coming Madrid Fusion Events!
