Bag of Beans Revisited

It was really part of our Tagaytay itinerary to go to Bag of Beans, but we prefer the new branch which is just nearby. Alas, we seem to have missed it completely so we ended up in the main branch which was really far from Tagaytay proper. But luck is with us since we got to try new food that we didn't order before.


Chicken pie. I'm not really crazy when it comes to chicken and pies but this is delish! Although I admit I wouldn't order this if not for my friend. But then, I would recommended this to those who are crazy about chicken and pies. note: I prefer the Sheperd's Pie but its not available when we dined there. :(




Grilled Cheese Kiddie Meal. That much? for a kid's meal? Value for money. Portion is good for 2 pax also. Two thumbs up!




Pancakes and Omelet. Another kiddie meal. Really? The serving's humongous and the one who ordered this meal is a 6 year old kid. What can I say- winner!




Hot Chocolate. I ordered this but got bumped off by a kid, though. Ha ha ha. She said- "Hands off. The hot chocolate is mine!"



This yumminess wasn't really my order but serendipity strikes so I get to drink this. And oooh la la ... definitely a winner! However, if you are already feeling the cold Tagaytay air, don't order this. ;)

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.
