Cafe Mamia


I haven't been to Dumaguete City since the early 90's and was very excited about our trip. Predictably, food overrules the tourist spots in the city. After arriving from our early morning flight, we freshened up a bit and headed off to Cafe Mamia for breakfast.









Churros con tsokolate. The tsokolate was rich and yummy; no hint of grainy texture. The churros was, well ... hmmmmm ... I prefer the ones from Dulcinea. This churros was on the heavy side.




Tapsilog or beef tapa breakfast. Excellent! The beef was very tender and the flavors not overpowering. I also love the garlic rice. Yum yum yum.




Iced-chocolate and pudding. Upon first sip, I was transported back in time. This was how my mother served iced-chocolate. Chocolate milk + chocolate syrup.




Mushroom omelette. Good but not that memorable.

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!

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.
