Asya Restaurant at Eton Centris Walk

I was invited to a small gathering of bloggers at Asya Restaurant last Aug. 23, 2010. Asya Restaurant is located right smack in the middle of the newly established Eton Centris Walk which you can access from the Centris Station along EDSA.

Asya Restaurant at Eton CentrisThe interiors are quite unique, bordering on quirky. Note the chair shaped like a man in the photo above. There are several of these at Asya, each sporting a different face and body. It's very spacious yet at the same time cozy. Since there aren't too many establishments at Centris Walk yet, it's very private so you can consider it a possible date place.

Crunchy Oysters at Asya RestaurantWe started our meal with Crunchy Oysters (P285 for 6 pieces, pictured above). Deep fried oysters are coated with a crunchy batter and then topped with a tangy mango sauce and green onions. It was pretty good.

Humba Ala Eh at Asya RestaurantHumba Ala Eh (P315, pictured above) was served next. Specially marinated pork kasim and pork pata slowly cooked in a special sauce. It was sweet and much too fatty for me, I'd very much prefer to see more lean meat.

Nasi Goreng at Asya RestaurantWe also had Nasi Goreng (P265, pictured above), which is Indonesian fried rice with sauteed chicken strips, shrimps, and spices. It was okay.

Hong Kong Style Fried Noodles at Asya RestaurantOne of the last savory dishes served was the Hong Kong Style Fried Noodles (P365, pictured above). I was amazed at how crunchy the noodles were even after sitting there for quite some time while everyone was taking photos.

Cappuccino at Asya RestaurantAt that point in time I decided to order a cup of cappuccino since we were told that they were serving dessert. I forgot to check how much it costs, but it was excellent coffee nonetheless. I didn't even bother putting any sweeteners.

Turon with Langka topped with Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce at Asya RestaurantTuron with Langka topped with Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce (P65, pictured above) was brought out. Nothing special, plus I hate langka (jackfruit). :p

Melon, Tapioca Pearls, and Gata at Asya RestaurantThen there was Melon, Tapioca Pearls, and Gata (P65, pictured above). Now this was interesting. It was like panna cotta made of coconut cream. It had tiny balls of sago (tapioca) and melon slices on top of caramel and creme sauce. I liked this dessert. :D

All in all I'd say I had an average meal at Asya Restaurant. Servings are good for sharing though and prices are reasonable so I'm not writing them off. There are still a lot of options to explore in the menu. At the moment though there's nothing to do at Centris Walk except eat and walk around (if it's not raining). In case of rains, make sure you have an umbrella as the whole of Centris Walk is uncovered -- and that includes the parking area.
