After the Christmas festivities, with all the good food overflowing, not to mention the weight gain (*sigh*), I'm back in the kitchen with a vengeance! The object of desire- bangus fillet. Also, the red wine is a New Year's Eve leftover. I don't really love red wines except that this one comes in a nice bottle so we bought it anyway. And as everyone in my family knows, frying is my waterloo and I don't want to waste good fish. We love bangus fillet at home and since yaya is on vacay, I have to feed the family. It's a good thing that I have my trusted turbo nearby. I marinated the bangus fillets in red wine and added some spices and cooked it in the turbo until it's brown enough. I added some steamed beans as side dish and sinandomeng rice. Yummy!
Konnichiwa Saigosan! A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast. Inspired by animes, mangas, and JPop culture, Saigosan even has a train wherein you can hop from Kyoto to Osaka without a JR Pass!
