Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it fires you up with a strong boost of energy to last you the whole day, be it in school or at work. Unfortunately, the fast-paced world has made everyone’s schedule so hectic that you often do not have enough time to really sit down and enjoy a good breakfast with the family. So, usually, it is a quick bite at a fast-food restaurant or a café in the neighborhood. But must you always have pancakes, waffles, hash-browns or hotdogs all the time?
Certain restaurants, such as Sentro 1771, serve very decent breakfasts that are not just food to help you get by but healthy, delicious and satisfying meals that will keep you alert, energetic and ready to face the challenges of yet another day in school or at work.
Part of the prestigious 1771 Group of Companies (which began with Chateau 1771 and now also includes Café 1771 and Flatiron 1771), Sentro 1771 has always been in the forefront of creating modern Filipino dishes anchored on the traditional favorites. This is why even its breakfast menu is replete with delightful selections any food-loving Filipino would love.
First up is its omelettes, the choices of which include malunggay omelette, queso de bola omelette, and corned beef omelette. Each variant makes use of three fresh eggs with a generous serving of your chosen flavor mixture.
For Filipino breakfast meals, the restaurant goes beyond the usual corned beef, longganisa, tapa and daing na bangus with fried egg and garlic rice. Yes, it does have these classics on the menu, although with a twist or elevated on to a higher plane. There’s ginisang corned beef, longganisang durog, dried beef sirloin tapa, boneless daing na bangus, and the more contemporary spicy tuyo flakes, crispy danggit, chicken pork adobo flakes, tinapang bangus, and catfish adobo flakes. Probably the most interesting is Pritong Paksiw na Bangus Belly, which is prime milkfish belly prepared the way you would regular paksiw na bangus, then fried and served with paksiw sauce, thus effectively marrying two dishes in one satisfying breakfast meal.
For diners who are looking for lighter Filipino breakfast fares, Sentro 1771 offers its all-time favorites: Kuisinero Fried Rice (rice sautéed with tuyo flakes, lots of garlic and topped with fried egg), adobo flakes fried rice (garlic fried rice mixed with chicken and pork adobo flakes, spring onion and fried egg for topping), suman with hot chocolate and melted kesong puti on pandesal (toasted sugar-free whole wheat pandesal, topped with melted kesong puti and served with native hot chocolate). Also on the breakfast menu is champorado, which can be customized according to your preference by choosing either regular champorado, brown rice champorado, champorado with tuyo, or champorado with crispy danggit.

You can order them plain, or in banana or cheese variants, all served with butter and caramel syrup. No overloaded toppings, fancy whipped cream or messy chocolate drips all over the plate; just plain, simple and incredibly delicious pancakes just the way they ought to be enjoyed.
That is exactly what we did in a recent press lunch hosted by Sentro 1771 in its Capitol Commons branch, where the chefs presented some new dishes, reminded guests of the restaurant’s commitment to serve only fresh and delicious meals, and had everyone sample its breakfast offerings and all-time favorites.
Sentro 1771 is at Capitol Commons, Pasig City; Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center, Makati City; and Uptown Place Mall, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
