No Brainer Meal

Fried fish and steamed alugbati.

Whenever we're in a hurry to prepare a meal, we usually end up with fried fish and steamed vegetables. And today's vegetable is--- alugbati!

Some may not even like this green leaf with purple stem but we to dip it with toyo-mansi. The sliced tomatoes are for the fish.

Years ago, during WWII, my parents told me that they heard of POWs eating boiled gumamela leaves to quench their hunger. Although I can't imagine myself eating gumamela (hey! i'm not sure if there are gumamelas in the city anymore?), I can stuff myself with alugbati, saluyot, and other greens. And if bagoong is available, these steamed veggies tastes wonderful!

Fish on the photo is called Salay.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
