Wok Inn

I used to frequent this restaurant way back in the mid-90's. My australian boss, J, was the one who introduced me to this resto which was a few minutes walk from "our" hotel. She invited me to join her for dinner when I happen to stay up late in the office. I remember that that dinner was the very first treat that I received from a boss.

So it's a bit nostalgic to eat there again, this time with my family in-tow. I'm so glad that the original branch in Malate is still open and nothing change much in the interiors.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
