Sarsa Kitchen & Bar, Manila…crispy buko pie is the best of the best

To most, Filipino cuisine is surprising unfamiliar as it lacks a mainstream following. While Chinese, Thai and Japanese restaurants can be found in any respectable-sized city it’s just not the case with Filipino food. One challenge is, it’s very hard to describe.

The food at Sarsa is a generous blend of savoury richness and fresh flavours.  The riot of Filipino dishes, both classic and new-school are stir fried French beans (+ ginamos, SARSA XO sauce, tinapa flakes and crispy dilis), grilled blue marlin (+ crab sauce and squid ink) and sizzling kansi (+batwan gravy). The standout course is the crispy buko pie a la mode (+ pandan sauce and ice cream) which is the perfect ending to a meal at Sarsa. Buko pie is a traditional Filipino pastry made with young coconut meat.

There’s something about the simplicity of this Sarsa version of buko pie that makes it so appealing. It’s the best of the best. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
