Resto Picks

Bizu
We all love Bizu. The cakes are sinfully deliciously and the pasta is just great. We also love the macaroon de paris which is quite costly for such a small piece but is really divine! Fave flavors are caramel, mint, coffee and raspberry. Their bread and duck liver pate are also superb. It's best to buy the bread around 9pm albeit the discount ;)

Sugi
The freshest tuna and salmon sashimi I've ever tasted are served in this resto. Alas, the price is quite far from our family budget of pigging out.

Nanbantei
Grilled Japanese food are in. We always order the aspara maki, quail eggs, tuna, pork and chicken liver. Then doused everything down with Nanbantei's house tea and you're ready for another round of order. The Salmon Steak is also yummy.

Cafe Provencale
Aside from pizza, they also serve pasta and meat dishes such as beef tenderloin, lamb chops and pork chops. I love their pork chop with mashed potato side dish. Resti craves for their grilled squid. Isabel will eat anything we order but not without her watermelon shake.

Pho Hoa
Beef noodle soup with mint leaves, lemon and bean sprouts.

Gerry's Grill
Sisig and calamares. What else? Cali Ice or mudshake if they have any. Oh, and vodka sprite for me.

Circles
The resto's extensive buffet is to die for. Yes, literally. You'll die from overeating. Hahaha. Hidden in the vastness that is Shangrila Makati, Circle's is making itself known as the best hotel buffet around town. Of course it's pricey being inside the hotel but we get to eat for free upon availing of the hotel's room accommodation. Eat your heart out, guys!

One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated.

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.

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!
