Who doesn’t love Filipino cuisine?
Foreigners visit the Philippines for two reasons: Food and Travel.
Ofcourse, the Philippines do not disappoint.

REDD, located at Prism Plaza in Mall of Asia Complex recently held its grand launch, introducing its very cool mixture of our favorite Filipino dishes. The menu is extensive, with enough Filipino food choices for any kind of craving and size of appetite.

That means that whether you are dining solo, in a date or even with a group of friends or family – REDD provides you with those perfect options mainly #Selfie (good for 1), #Date (good for 2-3) and #Groufie (good for 4-6) dish orders. The dishes are prepared and presented with a twist, while staying to the authentic slow-cooking methods that brings out the best flavors from each ingredient.

Chinese Na Matakaw will guide you on what to order when dining at REDD.

Naturally appetizers means a small dish served before the main meal, but you will be surprised that REDD’s line up of appetizers are as good as their mains!

Juana Fries
These potatoes underwent an extensive hydration process, so you are assured this is no ordinary fries! Plus the chili con carne and cheddar cream gives a perfect combination of sauce to the hand cut pototaes.

Wen Manong
This Ilocano dish is composed of pork mascara and liver, ginger, calamansi, chili and mayo. The taste is similar to that of Kilawin. Perfect to partner with a cold beer!

Bangus Sisig
Sisig Ala Kanto
I was able to try 3 kinds of sisig (Yes, they have more than one!) and as gluttonous you would say I am, I loved all of them! For pork lovers, try Sisig ala Kanto. For seafood lovers, try Bangus Sisig and a special sisig original recipe by the owner, which has 3 kinds of fish.

Main Dish: Oh-La-Lam!

Your favorite comfort foods are even made better with the twist that REDD provides.

Short Ribs Kansi
Kansi is an Ilonggo dish which is a crossover between sinigang and bulalo. The ribs are slow-cooked for 8 hours so you are sure it is perfect and tender. This dish which is cooked in kamias and lemongrass, is especially good during this rainy season.

Kare Kare Trio
Must order this one of a kind Kare Kare dish because it includes grilled chicken, beef brisket and fried pork, paired with house-made-sweet-salty Bagoong!

Chicken Pork Adobo
Not your usual adobo at home! This one has pork belly bagnet, chicken leg and thigh inasal combined in their special adobo sauce. I really love thick adobo sauce.

Glazed Tuna Belly
Seafood lover? Their grilled and glazed Tuna from Gen San is a must try, perfect with sautéed veggies. For all watching their diet, this is one my fave seafood dish from REDD.

Lighter options for those going green can choose from the Oh My G! portion of the menu that includes the Bicolano Gising-Gising - sigarilyas and fried tofu made rich and creamy with coconut milk.  

Tinapa Rice

Bagoong Rice
While all the dishes are usually paired with plain white rice, it’s also best to try their #RicePaMore menu. I tried both Bagoong ang Tinapa rice, and I love the Bagoong rice! Although it has a flavor of its own, it’s still perfect with the main dishes I ate. They also have Aligue rice and all three flavored rice are available in Pang Date and Pang Groufie servings.

Now, it’s time to make some room for dessert.

Dessert: Sweet Endings

Ending but sweet indeed, both the Turon Overload and Leche Flan would win and clean your palette from all the savory dishes you will eat at REDD. Both are also customers faves! (insert thumbs up!)

REDD offers a great twist in their Filipino dishes that I’m sure will be a favorite of many. Try it out and let me know what you picked!
