#FoodPH - Señorita Sunae Asian Kitchen Brings The Best Dishes Of Southeast Asian Cuisine!

Bonifacio Global City is a food haven. From the past years, this place become home to country's best of the best restaurants that gives food enthusiasts experience worth remembering and revisiting. And when you ask us what restaurant we can recommend when you visit BGC,  Señorita Sunae Asian Kitchen is part of our top list.

The popular meals of East Asia and the Indian subcontinent have been combined to create the delicious cuisine of Southeast Asia. The difficulty with Southeast Asian cuisine is that there are simply too many different flavors to take in but Señorita Sunae Asian Kitchen was able to bring the best out of it.

While waiting for our appetizer, they served a basket of fried kamote chips with sweet chili dip.

We kicked off our culinary journey with Kinilaw sa Tahure. A combination of fresh tuna, tofu cream, seasonal fresh fruit, dill, chili oil, shallots and crispy quinoa. There's a perfect union between acid and heat plus textures from tofu cream and quinoa. We knew we're in for a treat after this first dish!

Up next on the table was this Korean-Style Fried Chicken Bowl which was made of marinated free range chicken thigh and cucumber salad. We love it's addictively crunchy exterior (crispy coated buttermilk fried chicken) and spicy Korean-inspired gochujang sauce. It's love with every bite.

The next one is OUR favorite. Bangkok-Style Crab and Prawn Omelette transported us to the side streets of Thailand smelling the scent of fried egg and seafood. This dish is a combination of crab meat and prawn omelette, stir-fried garlic rice, aligue and sweet and spicy sauce.

Seafood Peanut Curry is combination of prawns, calamari, seasonal vegetables in curry sauce with shrimp paste, banana blossom, chili and achuete. Everything works well together and remind us the warmth of Filipino style seafood kare-kare.

Chef Sunae grew up in Pampanga so we're not surprised that part of her menu was the ever famous sisig. It's a combination of chopped pork belly, pork ear and snout, onions, chili and egg served in a hot skillet.

To cleanse the palate, we tried the Tamarind juice which was freshly made from sweetened tamarind.

How can it be a meal without desserts? First on the list, Carioca Pop which was made of fried glutinous rice balls, mango, sesame, coconut and sweet potato ice cream.

Cobbler was served in a warm skillet with seasonal fruits in cashew nut scone cookie crust smothered with condensed milk ice cream. 


And of course, we will not miss the Not Your Ordinary Halo Halo! It's a concoction of melon granita, Thai tea, kamote ice cream, orange, pandan, merengue, ginger cookie, passion fruit, and nata de coco. Everything complimented the flavor profile of each ingredient and we also like the texture it's giving. It was an experience!

We thought we already got the best but we were proved wrong when Natilla De Coco was served. This fine looking dessert made us travel back to our younger years when we used to play in the forest with our childhood friends. The combination of coconut pudding, coconut cookie, dark coconut sauce, strawberry powder and fresh fruit reminded us the taste of Filipino summer. Youthful, exciting and refreshing.

Señorita Sunae Asian Kitchen also crafts their own own cocktails. We were able to try Green Apple Pie which is a combination of Jameson Irish Whisky, cointreau, apply syrup, cinnamon syrup, lemon, angostura bitters, ginger cookie and egg white. It was like eating a piece of Green Apple Pie but in a drink version.

The Señorita Sunae Asian Kitchen Experience

Given the wide range of inspirations, it's simple to label Chef Sunae's cuisine as belonging to the divisive "fusion" subgenre; however, the chef doesn't identify with this label because the blending of many cultures in her food is a natural outcome of her upbringing.

Chef Sunae shares in one of her interviews, “You go to the Philippines and you have local ingredients, you have influences from Spain [and] China [and] Malaysia [and so on],”“But you don’t call Filipino food ‘fusion’ food. It’s Filipino food.” In that same vein, Chef Sunae doesn’t consider her food fusion. “My food is Asian—always with the Filipino background, of course.”
