Sinigang na corned beef ?!


I was happily munching my take-out lunch when I suddenly had this idea to take a shot of this unique meal I was having.

For those whose curiosity was piqued by the baby tomatoes in coconut milk, here is another: sinigang na corned beef (corned beef in tamarind soup)! But this was not made by my mother-in-law. It's being served by Sentro, a restaurant in Greenbelt. My colleagues have been swearing by how good this is, so when we dropped by Greenbelt, I decided to try it out. But we had to be back at the office so I ordered take-out.

The waiter would let you take a sampled sip of the tamarind soup, and you may want it to be more sour, or spicier. After which they'd cook the sinigang.

It was an odd combination (the corned beef and the tamarind soup), but it works! The sweetness of the beef mingles with the sour taste of the tamarind, and the soft beef pieces go well with the crunchy vegetables. M-mmmmm! As you can see in the photo, I have mixed the corned beef and soup with my rice in my bowl (which is how I like to eat).

An order costs around P300.00 but it's good enough for 2 or 3 people. Hmmm... Sentro must pay me for endorsing this dish ... :-)
