It was a night of good vibes, great food and awesome company last Wednesday as we witnessed a back-to-back event in Uptown Bonifacio.
It was the opening of Sentro 1771’s newest branch and the first year anniversary of Flatiron.
Everyone was in high spirits, celebrating these 1771 milestones at Uptown Mall in BGC.
The guests enjoyed the heavy cocktails, open bar and desserts.
Flatiron opened its first branch in Uptown Mall last year. Offering American cuisine with European and Asian influences, Flatiron serves impeccable comfort food right off the griddle.
Flatiron Brisket 6 is the restaurant’s house specialty, a definite must-try! The meat is slowly cooked for 6 hours to achieve the perfect fusion of tasteful ingredients and the right amount of tenderness.
Another enticing dish is Chicken Piccata, thinly-pounded chicken breast fried in butter and tossed in lemon butter sauce. The richness of the lemon butter sauce is balanced by the lightly creamed spaghettini.
The Corned Beef Skillet is another comfort food that will surely fill a hungry tummy. Sautéed with onions and tomatoes, it is served with sunny-side up eggs and a choice of rice or potato bread rolls.
And what better way to cap off a delicious meal than to indulge in the sweetness of the Intense Brownie Burger. It’s coffee ice cream sandwiched between two Swiss Chocolate fudge brownies on a cream cheese sauce mirror, slathered with chocolate espresso sauce and toffee sauce. It is that intense!
“Flatiron was well received by patrons of Uptown Bonifacio. This progress alongside the emergence of various establishments in Bonifacio Global Center, specifically, in Uptown Bonifacio and the presence of a diverse community complemented with 1771’s followers garnered through the years, are positive indicators that, indeed, there is a market in the vicinity. There is a flourishing food culture and expanding Sentro 1771 is most opportune,” shared Vicky Pacheco, Executive Chef and COO of 1771 Group of Restaurants.
Sentro 1771 is the brainchild of Chef Vicky who deviated from the plain and the usual by creating modern Filipino food. She experimented with flavors and explored ways and techniques to revamp standard Filipino recipes to make them extraordinary, sophisticated and world-class.
Take for instance, their best-selling Corned Beef Sinigang. The fully brined corned beef and the rich sour broth takes the Pinoy sinigang to a whole new level!
Even the modest galunggong underwent a startling transformation, too! Sentro 1771 turned galunggong into a sumptuous classy dish served with olive oil. The dish called Rated GG brings unexpected satisfaction to diners with finer tastes.
Sentro 1771 likewise serves premium-quality modern Filipino dishes like Adobo, Caldereta, Spring Rolls, among many others. And don’t forget the desserts! Sentro 1771’s Keso Flan, a Filipino version of cheesecake topped with salted egg, will keep you coming back for more!
“We dream of Sentro 1771 as the go to for modern Filipino cuisine prepared in the creative culinary supervision of the best team in town using the freshest natural ingredients,” uttered by Chef Vicky Pacheco.
Sentro 1771’s unconventional yet superb take on Filipino cuisine makes it one of the most celebrated restaurants in the country. It offers sweet refuge to the hungry and the most satisfying treat to the palate. It can also accommodate events in its cozy function room fit for an intimate gathering of 10-30 guests.
