I was able to go on another fruitful food trip to Serye restaurant in Parañaque. I actually didn’t mind travelling to the south all the way from Ortigas, just to have my fill of Serye’s delicious classic dishes.
Serye vows to serve dishes in the most authentic Filipino way. They are known for their chicken barbecue, but they actually have more in store for their dining customers.
TV show Food Wars Asia named Serye’s kare kare the best one in the country. I totally agree with that statement. The kare-kare strongly tastes of peanut and the sauce alone was just so flavorful and good.
Aside from Serye’s kare-kare, I am also much into their binagoongan dish. This one is different from the usual binagoongan as the meat in the dish were served separately from the veggies. The meat was tender, flavorful, and has the right kind of salty.
True to its name, their crispy pata doesn’t disappoint and is wonderfully crispy, you get to make a loud crunch in every bite.
Serye seems to have also mastered the art of making adobo. It has the perfect balance of salty and sour to it.
Aside from the dishes, we had a couple of dessert pieces too, but what stood out from the rest is their buco pandan macapuno cake. This well made pandan chiffon cake was smothered with cream. It was moist and has the right amount of sweetness to it. Definitely a must have when you visit Serye in Parañaque.
