If you're a sucker for Filipino comfort food, for sure it will be hard to impress you—but since you clicked on this article, I know you're intrigued about this new place which we're saying offers local food with a global taste. Allow me to excite you further: Care for some Sisig Nachos, Bangus Caesar Salad, Chocolate Binagoongan, or Tonkatsu Bicol Express? How about Maja Blanca Panacotta or Chocnut Turon for your sweet tooth? That photo up top must've piqued your interest, too—it's Yellow Chicken Adobo pasta, an incarnation that will totally make you appreciate adobo even more what with the unique tasty twist the combination of ingredients make.
7107 Culture + Cuisine is not a disappointment to its name, as it takes our country's cuisine to the next level with their exquisite modernized Filipino comfort food offerings, classified under four nationalistic and witty groupings: Kanto, an array of classic Pinoy snacks with a cool take; Dampa, which will take you on an under the sea food adventure; Talyasi, which symbolizes special occasions in Pinoy lives through fiesta food; and of course, Himagas, one-of-a-kind versions of desserts we know and love.
“Through 7107, we are committed in celebrating the best of what our country has to offer—the beauty, richness, and uniqueness of our culture," says its owners Gerwin and Sheryl See. "We want to represent the multiple facets of our cuisine and how they are deeply rooted in our culture—from the simple street food born out of our ancestors’ resiliency to the colorful fiestas that celebrate fruitful harvests."
True to their advocacy of promoting Filipino culture, the restaurant's interiors are jazzed up with artwork and decor from names like Nix Alanon, Daryl Feril, and C + C.
