Food De Sentosa
My fiancé and I decided to head to Paranaque last week to visit our friend who owns Food de Sentosa, an authentic Singaporean restaurant along Aguirre Avenue. Food de Sentosa’s façade is nothing gaudy, its interior is far from what you see in restaurants located in luxurious places in Manila but there’s definitely something about Food de Sentosa that will make people’s visit worth the while.

The chef is the owner himself who happens to be a Singaporean, so visitors are already guaranteed with an authentic Singaporean taste. The staff is very accommodating and service is quick, so you wouldn’t have to worry about your growling stomach.
Here’s what we ordered:
Hainanese Chicken (Small, P150)
I am a Hainanese Chicken fan and this reminded me of the Hainanese chicken rice I used to eat in Singapore. The chicken meat was tender and juicy, which makes this a winner among all the Hainanese chicken I have tried in Manila. The sauce was effin’ great too! The soy sauce had a hint of sesame oil and the mix of ginger and spicy sauce was just heavenly. No doubt, this has become one of their best sellers!
Lamb Curry (Small P200)
The curry sauce was a bit oily but we didn’t mind at all. Big chunk of potatoes blended perfectly well with the lamb. This is best eaten with plain rice if you want to fully savor the taste of the sauce. The lamb didn’t have a fishy smell at all although I wanted the meat to be softer.
Mee Goreng with Lamb (Small, P135)
Mee Goreng with Lamb
This dish is another personal favorite. I think we finished this in about ten minutes. The noodles were very fragrant. The egg, tomatoes and lamb added flavor to this dish. You can tell the staff how spicy you want it to be.
Nasi Goreng (Small P125)
Tasty and flavorful rice with fresh prawns. Never mind the carb overload.
Prawn Cereal (P395)
A different take on prawns but we loved it. The prawns were huge and fresh. We loved the taste of the prawns fried with egg and curry leaves.
Oyster Cake (P250)
We neglected to take a picture of our last dish but this is a must try. It’s not your typical oyster cake because the oysters are separated from the cake and is placed on top of it instead. What makes this dish great is the freshness of the oysters which gives pretty damn good taste. According to the owner, their oysters are delivered fresh everyday.
Milk Tea (P55)
First of all, the taste is nothing like Bubble Tea or Serenitea or other sprouting milk tea places in Metro Manila. Their tea has a more bitter taste which makes it very authentic. From the taste I can tell that it is thicker than other milk teas. What I love about this is the black jelly topping, perfect with milk tea!
Air bundung (P40)
No, this is not strawberry milk tea. It’s actually rose flavored milk tea and it’s pretty good but it is an acquired taste because some people may not be used to the flowery smell of the drink.
Food de Sentosa offers its customers great and authentic dining experience. This has been our second time to visit the place and yet it does not fail to excite our taste buds. We would definitely go back to try other dishes.
FFFFF- for authentic Singaporean food, great service!
