Attorney Mon, Ate Dindin and I stumbled upon Sarsa' restaurant because we were looking for a vegetarian restaurant at the second floor of MOA's South Veranda last last week because my friend Ate Dindin is in town and she is a vegetarian. The Ginataan kalabasa word in a review written by Bianca Gonzalez using a colored chalk at the glass door of Sarsá caught Ate Dindin's attention. That "gata" word is the reason why we entered Sarsa Kitchen + Bar that night.
It is a good thing that we were immediately given a table.
Before you enter the resto you'll see a big picture of Chef Jayps Anglo, who I think is the owner of Sarsa. I don't have any idea who he is. But I think he is famous and has a lot of celebrity friends if you'll based it on the reviews that line up the restaurant's door and adorned its wall. Actually, just below his picture outside the resto you'll see already the various reviews written by different chef, celebrities and foodies in the Metro. The restaurant offers Negrense comfort food done with contemporary touches.
I love the lamps lights that line up the ceiling of the resto. It is very attractive.
It is a full house that night.
The kitchen's glass window also has a review.
Even Ces Drilon has her own review of the resto!
Various reviews by different publications.
I don't have a budget yet but I wish to come back and try these dishes #WishfulThinking #ChefJayps
Bare Floors, brick walls nothing fancy but good food.
We ordered the kansi bulalo and adobong pusit because the waiter said it is their bestsellers besides ate Dindin had already ordered kalabasa and gising gising plus rice.
The sinful Kansi Bulalo is a combination of bulalo with sinigang taste and tender beef pieces plus a serving of bone marrow. Warning! This dish is very high in cholesterol.
Notable portraits I saw from #Sarsa's wall:
I think this is Imelda Marcos during her Miss Manila days and Miss Universe Gloria Diaz. And the portrait below is Gretchen Barretto who were depicted crying as to why, I do not know.
