Bibimbap



This is a typical Korean that is popular with Filipinos. Why? (1) Because the name is easy to remember and (2) because it's a rice meal. A bit spicier though so if one is really eating authentic Bibimbap (not the Filipino fusion-kind), don't make the mistake of mixing the red chili paste with the food itself. Simply remove some of it and just add and mix until you get the desired and tolerable level of spiciness. The Bibimbap shown in the photo was from Snack 88 along Bocobo St., in Malate. This is the authentic kind since the Unnie who manages the restaurant is also the one preparing the food and the restaurant caters mostly to Korean tourists here in Manila.

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!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
