March 15, 2012 – Sooo Pinoy Food Tour Day 4 in Boracay – Previous Post : Tryst Poolside Bar.
After tasting the “Rema” inspired dishes at Tryst Bar, we moved to Cafe De Paris, a restaurant owned by Mr. Roger De Paris – a french Expat who decided to stay and live in the island.
Sinigang na Hipon
We were introduced to Chef Mirasol Masagnay, who generously shared that her secret ingredient to spice up her Sinigang na Hipon is surprisingly not a shrimp flavored seasoning but a cube of “knorr chicken broth”.
She also served Pinoys favorite “Bistek” – Pinoys normally cook Bistek using pork even though the word really originated from the dish “Beef Steak” but it has the same process of cooking, the meat is being marinated in kalamansi or vinegar, soy sauce, black pepper and lots of onions. Some prefers to have the meat fried after being marinated but some just simmers it with all the ingredients until the meat is tender.
