Filipinos have always loved putting all kinds of sauces and condiments on their food. This unique eating habit of Filipinos is what led to the creation of Sarsa Kitchen+Bar. The owners, led by Chef JP Anglo, thought, why not combine the best local ingredients with a range of new signature sauces to create exciting but familiar tastes.

Sarsa Kitchen+Bar features the best of traditional Filipino and Negrense dishes, done with a contemporary touch and using the best local ingredients.

The Manila market now has a sizzling love affair with Negrense cuisine as seen through Sarsa’s best-sellers which include Sizzling Kansi, Chicken Inasal, Special Batchoy and Molo Soup. Other unique Pinoy dishes like Lechon Kawali with Batwan Tsokolate sauce have been getting rave reviews as well.

JP Anglo (a.k.a. Chef Jayps) acquired most of his culinary
expertise while working as an apprentice both in and out of
the country. He obtained a Diploma in Culinary Arts and
Technology Management from the Center of Culinary Arts
in Manila, a degree in Hospitality Management from TAFE
Ultimo in Sydney, Australia and a degree from the world acclaimed Le Cordon Bleu cooking school also in Sydney, Australia.

Chef Anglo specializes in Filipino and Asian cuisine and has worked abroad for international restaurants to expand his culinary horizons and learn new techniques. He now travels around Asia regularly to sample new kinds of food and to update his palate.

On T.V., Chef Jayps was a judge in the top rated TV show Master Chef Pinoy Edition and was also a judge in the highly acclaimed Junior Master Chef. He was a regular guest chef in the popular but now defunct daily talk show of Kris Aquino – Kris TV. Currently, he is the host of CNN Philippines new food and travel show, “Hungry with Chef JP“, which premiered to rave reviews and is now in its second season.
