Choco-late de Batirol

This secret garden-type restaurant is a must-visit place if you happen to be in Baguio. It is located somewhere near Camp John Hay area. The place is very relaxing and the sound of birds and insects can be heard. However, since the place is full of plants, be sure to wear jeans and a jacket since there are mosquitoes even in broad daylight.






There are lots of pasalubongs to choose from. Cookies, jam, chicharon, tablea, etc.




Bibingka. Piping-hot! And with a generous topping of grated coconut. Yum yum.




Suman. Not the sweet kind. Great paired with the hot chocolate that we ordered.




Hot Chocolate. So nice to drink hot chocolate when you're in Baguio. Wanna know why? ;)

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.
