Chef JP Reyes and Kristen Brillantes from Sarap Shop took sinigang, a traditional Filipino sour and savory soup, and created their own version with fried soy “chicken” bites and pickled vegetables.Chef Preligen Manaois’ dessert trio included a chocolate dome, coconut rice pudding, and mango panna cotta with coconut foam.
