Sarsa Kitchen + Bar: Fancy Kansi

It's almost six months since Alvie's new job and we figured it was time to celebrate by trying out a new Filipino restaurant making ripples in BGC named Sarsa. I was pleased to see online that this new restaurant is not following in the footsteps of Chef Laudico and Aracama. The prices, though slightly pricier than normal, weren't extremely expensive for good ol' local food.

Lechon Kawali with Batwan Tsokolate & Pinakurat, P250.00
I think it'd sound so much cooler as Batman Tsokolate. Haha. Well, the lechon kawali was pretty standard, but it was pretty interesting to dip it in rich chocolate sauce each time. I liked it but never really got used to the mix, which is also a good thing. Despite Pinakurat being one of the few kinds of vinegar I actually enjoy, I didn't even touch it.

Sizzling Kansi (Sizzling Bulalo) with Batwan Gravy, P335.00
Garlic Rice, P40.00 each
Fancy Kansi! These serving of Sizzling Kansi was enjoyable, but the batwan gravy was a bit batwan boring. Good, soft meat, but the bone marrow just isn't the same as the classic Bulalo. For this version, it was much easier to avoid. Haha. The garlic rice was pretty normal.

Entire Menu

Lechon Kawali with Batwan Tsokolate & Pinakurat: Good
Sizzling Kansi with Batwan Gravy: Good
Garlic Rice: Good

Simple and classic.
I am glad to see a new restaurant taking flight in a relatively new, previously barren area of the Fort. The rest of the menu looks good enough to come back for and try out! They were also nice enough to give us complimentary bowls of Kansi soup which was very tasty but a bit on the salty side.
