Something Vegetarian


One day, I found myself going to Ongpin because I've been craving for some childhood goodies. Then I remembered Quan Yin Chay. It is a vegetarian restaurant located in Masangkay Street. When I was young, my father (a vegetarian) and I used to visit this resto which was near his office. It used to have a branch in Soler Street. So after office, my father and I would then head off to Quan Yin Chay and we'd have our fill of delicious vegetarian dishes.





Fish. You can fry this or saute with lots of vegetables. Daughter loves this fish, too. I'm glad that when it comes to food, my daughter can adjust well to a vegetarian diet.


Chicken. Fried. Its like chicken nuggets but tastes a bit bland. Need tons of ketchup!

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.
