Sasa Asian Cuisine: New Modern Asian Merienda Menu (Capitol Commons Pasig)

The Philippine food scene is now evolving as our very own Filipino chefs have become bold in reinventing classic dishes into their spectacular and unique masterpieces.  I was fortunate enough to be invited to the launch of Sasa Asian Cuisine's modern A2sian merienda menu concocted by Internationally-trained celebrity Chef Raymar Reyes.

As I walked in, I could sense a harmonious fusion vibe from the interiors of the place.  The ceiling has beautiful flowery design that one similarly encountered in a Japanese Kimono.  The brick walls are painted with a mix of Asian people.  The blends of colors from the blue, yellow and brown chairs, yellow lofts and red shelves gives a lively vibe.

Let's begin our merienda.

The Yasaiitame is a Japanese dish with a Filipino twist.  Think of all our Filipino lumpia ingredients graced with a sweet and seasoned takoyaki sauce.

Taiwanese Beef Noodles
The Taiwanese Beef Noodles is a nice blend of savory and spiced that will keep you wanting for more.

Wrap sa Chicken
If you love the classic peking duck but looking for a bolder flavor, the Wrap sa Chicken is worth a try.

This is my first time to encounter a Klepon which has its origin from Indonesia.  It a palm sugar stuffed rice ball with black sesame sauce.  It was something worth trying due to epicuriousity but it's not something my taste buds is used to.

Pandan Pouch
The Pandan Pouch is so beautiful that I was really hesitant to unwrap it.  The crepe wrap is mildly pandan flavored and inside are palm sugar bits.

Pandan Tea
I didn't like the Pandan Tea because it felt like the powdered side street shakes.  Next time, I'm going to try their Tamarind or Black Tea instead.

Overall, it was really an interesting merienda experience especially with the Lechon Sisig!  Well done Chef Raymar Reyes!
