Sinfully Circles

I've always love this restaurant (yes, I'm a bit biased when it comes to Circles vs Heat) and maybe because I always have good memories whenever we dine here since daughter was still a wee one. We've already celebrated more than several milestones in this restaurant. I still remember the first time that I dined here, it was sometime in the mid-90's. My friend Benj Garcia invited me for dinner. Alas, I can't remember what I wore but I do remember that we ate really, really huge crabs. Then there's wine. And cherries. But the cherries came from my friend's aunt who just arrived from HK. I miss Benj!

He was my first foodie friend. There was a time when he said he wanted to try RJ's Bulalo near Boni Circle in Mandaluyong. So we scheduled a dinner there and funny lang coz he brought along a bottle of wine to pair with our bulalo. How sosy, di ba? I guess the servers were too awed to collect corkage fee from us. Haha

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.
