a short hiatus that brought about a new addiction caused my one week lull. many apologies but not regretted due to the new discovery in an exciting sport which I promise to update in one of my following posts..
on to what I have been meaning to update following a full flavoured Thai food hunt is another full-flavoured cuisine – Filipino food! 7107 flavours is an outlet boasting authentic Filipino food choices, atmosphere and staff outfit. Leaning towards slightly pricey, the haunt is visited mostly by foreigners which also means less crowd but still recommended by my Filipino friends in Singapore, a good sign I reckon!
7107 Flavours has a good menu with a wide variety of local specialties although the ingredients were tweaked a slight bit to suit a more foreigner friendly palette.
A small group of 4 of us means we couldnt order too much as Filipino food is meat laden n heavy so these are some personal favourites of my Filipino mate and it did win us over to want more!
Sisig has become my personal favourite due to its simple flavours, slight spice and so easy to eat! Apparently, it is a great companion to beer and in Filipines, it is cooked with parts of the pig’s face such as the ears and fatty parts. Rumour has it, that sometimes they do add in the brains.. Shudders! I wonder how adventurous I could get with food… Thankfully, in Singapore, its just minced pork (i hope!).
Chicken Adobo is a popular dish in Philippines. A simple yet hearty stew set in flavours such as garlic, vinegar and soya sauce reminds me much of Chinese cuisine! The wonders of immigration that influenced cooking.. goes great with their garlic rice for a complete meal!
Lastly, always looking for a healthy meal.. vegetables upon their recommendation..
what I really enjoyed about this dish besides the selection of vegetables is what else went into the shrimp paste sauce… Corned Beef! Seldom have i seen corned beef be used in sauces to thicken and taste it.. Love it!
Filipino food is really a world filled with flavours albeit to the heavy side of everything. So long as you pair it with rice (which is something they swear by), the food comes out just right. Don’t forget to end off with a dessert but be prepared for a sweet treat, much like Thai food; rich in flavours. They say 7101 represents the number of islands Philippines have in total, I say it also tells you what to expect from their food! Bursting in flavour!
Apparently there is another really good outlet located in Tanjong Pagar/Tiong Bahru.. Anyone heard of it?
