sabroso lechon


i guess when one is in manila, one can't expect to taste cebu lechon here unless of course you order from CNT in cebu and have the lechon flown here in manila..

as for sabroso lechon, hmmmm.. its flavorful alright.. but i miss the crunchy balat (skin).. and i find it too flavorful for me.. maybe something is wrong with me.. more salty and there's a sour tastes.. based on the photo that i saw on the internet, they add tons and tons of tanglad (lemongrass) inside the lechon to make it flavorful. the one delivered to me (yes, they deliver per kilo) contains some sampaloc leaves.. as for the sour/salty tastes, could it be sinigang mix? hmmm... i know that some people use sinigang mix when making roast chicken. they rub the sinigang mix liberally on the skin and crevices of the butchered fowl..

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!

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
