I don't know why it took us so long to finally try Sarsa. I heard the lines were crazy, and
crazy lines put me off. It was perfect though for a very early dinner on a Friday night.
We were there at 6:30pm and got a table immediately. Actually, we got 2 tables
because the 3 of us girls were eating for 6!
Sarsa's one page menu had too many dishes I wanted to try. To make life
easier, we went with the recommendations of our very soft-spoken server.
The sarsa at Sarsa: achuete oil, soy sauce, vinegar, calamansi and sili.
I like mine with just vinegar, calamansi and sili.
What happened after we prepared our dipping sauces was a lot of oohing and aahing and head-bobbing action. The food at Sarsa may be simple and straightforward, but it was simple and straightforward and very, very good!
We've never met Chef JP Anglo, but we felt his love in every bite.
Isaw - chicken intestines. FTW!
Isol - chicken tail. These asses were bigger and fattier than what I am accustomed to.
I can normally eat 8 chicken butts, but stopped after 2 of these.
Pritchon Pancakes - a bit too much hoisin sauce for my taste
Bangus Belly Salad, Grilled Vegetables, Crispy Cheese with Honey Mansi Dressing
The next four dishes are my absolute favorites. You must not leave Sarsa without ordering these:
Sarsa Batchoy Special with egg, bone marrow and bacon-cut liempo
Ginamos Fried Rice. That's a dollop of bagoong on top of the rice.
I wanted to stay and have dessert but felt bad for the people waiting for our table(s)
The wait situation at 8pm.
