Torta De Argao

After our Dumaguete trip, we were supposed to go straight to Cebu City but since Tita N and Tita M joined our trip, they convinced me that a short stop to Argao to visit the church and museum won't change our schedule drastically. O-kay.



Argao town proper has a very nice centuries old church that is rich in history and artifacts. Yes, one must find time to visit Argao Museum and the church. I'm glad that I got bullied into going to Argao.


And because I did my research and I've been to Cebu a few years back, I was told that Argao is known for its torta just like Carcar is known for its lechon. Luckily, I espied this big banner (who can't miss this, right?) along our way to the church. I insisted on stopping to buy some goodies.

Torta. This is different from the torta that we know here in Manila because when we say torta, an egg and eggplant dish comes to mind.



I've read somewhere that tortas are made from eggs yolks and lard so it is laden with cholesterol. Good cholesterol that is. Tastes good!

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. 

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!
