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..

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. 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. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.

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.
