Skewered: Your Next Pan-Asian Gastronimic Destination

From all over the world, we all have our different versions of grilled meats. For Americans, they have their ribs and brisket, for Latin Americana, they have churrasco, for the middle east, they have their kebabs, and for Asians, they have their rich array of satay, yakitori, and barbecue.

 

What is a skewer? To most of us, that is simply a barbecue stick. But further research points it is a metal rod that is used to fasten meat for cooking. What we don’t usually talk about it is how each other Asian nations actually has some sort of version of it.

Upon entry, we notice the theme of the restaurant, the entire place is a replica of a shipwreck. Low hanging wooden fixtures, rustic lamps, moss-covered walls, and ceiling. A variety of elements can be found all around the floor if you look close enough.

What is interesting is the mural they have on the back side of the restaurant, it tells the story of how spice traders landed in Asia and eventually influenced them by using the spices on the ship eventually helping to create the different kinds of skewered meats each Asian country had. That same ship is represented by the Skewered restaurant itself, is a mixture of Asian flavors.  Here are our top picks on your next order.

The plating of their Pad Thai is beautiful, enveloped in scrambled egg and topped with char-grilled shrimps. The dish has a mild contrasting tinge of sweet-sour flavors. This has to be one of our favorite Pad Thai’s in Manila.

 

PHATCHIC RICE

Fried rice mixed with Chinese sausage, eggs, spring onions, carrots, corn, and green peas. It’s tasty by itself and is a bit similar to pepper rice.
