7,107 Flavours is a Philippine restaurant that aims to bring about the best Filipino Food from all the 7,107 islands of the Philippines. How about that.
So where can you find this promising place? Nowhere but in Singapore. Yes, on the second floor of Marina Square, a shopping mall located in the beautiful Marina bay area, is where the Philippine cuisine brought to world consciousness as a mainstream of Cuisine of Choice.
We start off from the northern Luzon island of the Philippines, Ilocos. Pinakbet is a popular Ilocano dish served with variety of vegetables and cooked with bagoong. Sometimes associated with dinengdeng but they really are different with each other. The one they served us (in the picture) is cooked with bagoong alamang, well, I know the taste of our pure bagoong we used to cooked our Pinakbet, and this one is really not it. Though, the taste is also impressive. This meal comes with Bagnet also but with a higher cost.
Bicol Express SGD18.5
Now we go southern tip of the Luzon island which is the Bicol Region. I have been to Bicol and I've also tried some of their best dishes in town like Bicol Express. Bicolano style of cooking is known for spicy hot chillies and coconut milk, and this is what made of the Bicol Express. And with this 7107 Flavours' version, it tasted like the same dish I have tried before. Yummy. Tasty. Spicy.
Crispy Pata SGD27
"Pampabata", as what they jokingly say in Tagalog which means, it's gonna make you younger. Yeah right, of course -- younger to die. (LOL) Anyways, it's not like you've always eaten this for the rest of your life, so stop worrying. Once in awhile, it's okay to devour to this devilish meal. Crispy Pata is a pig trotter or knuckles that is deep fried to bring out the crispness. Many restaurants in the Philippines served this as party fare.
Overall. The price is worth it. The food is just great. The ambiance is sooo good, I can almost feel the Philippines in the air and the Filipinos there are all warm. There is acoustic playing wherein customers can jam if they feel they wanna sing their heart out.
Surely, there's always a place for Filipinos in everywhere. Try 7107 Flavours and you'll see..
