Sari-saring Lumpia - A celebration of all things spring roll!
- Shanghai: Traditionally long, thin & generously filled with a delicious duo of minced pork & carrot filling. Accompanied by a soy sauce & lime dip.
- Sotanghon: Filled with one of Philippines’s famous ‘pancit’ dish, using vermicelli noodles, shrimps, beansprouts, carrots & green beans. Accompanied by a homemade sweet & sour dip.
- Sariwa: A chicken & vegetable filling cocooned in a fresh spring roll wrapper layered with lettuce leaves & generously drizzled with a peanut & garlic sauce.
Served with jasmine rice
- Munggo Guisado: This is a hearty stew, showcasing the earthy flavour & texture of mung beans cooked with ginger, garlic and onions and the not so traditional but oh so yummy vegetarian sausages!
- Bicol Express: Not one for the faint hearted, a coconut pork curry cooked with shrimp paste and laden with unapologetically copious amounts of birds eye chillis. There will be a pint of milk ready for the unprepared!
- Adobong Manok: Unmistakably the dish that every Filipino living overseas yearns for! Chicken cooked in vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaves & whole black peppercorns.
- Piña, buko at rum: Pineapple upside down cake & coconut macaroons drizzled with a ‘kick of rum’ syrup!
