Winter Garden At The China Palace

One fine Saturday, the family (including a balikbayan aunt and a Dutch uncle) found ourselves in the highlands. The travel was really uneventful especially for me- I slept the whole nine yards. Then there's the picture-taking session with Taal Volcano as the backdrop. The ducks were missing from the pond. Did we just ordered roast duck?! Hehehe.

These are what we ate and some others ...




Roast Chicken. The kids love the kropek! ;) Well, the chicken was delicious but still, kropek is kropek especially if there are kids around.






Sweet and Sour Pork. I find this dish too sweet and the meat was not as tender as I want it to be. Sorry, not a fan of this dish.



Prawn Salad. The cream was overwhelming- literally (as shown on the photo). You won't even know its prawn salad because it has tons of peaches, pineapples, grapes and cherries. Also, the prawns are sliced into halves. I guess this dish costs way too much for a fruit salad. :P




Cold-Cuts Platter. Excellent! Especially the jellyfish and the century egg. Love, love, love.




Birthday Noodles (I think). Didn't touch this dish because I don't find it appealing. Literally swimming in sauce!



We avoided the lunch crowd so we had a nice and quiet lunch while enjoying the view and the cool breeze.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
