Breakfast At Lam Tin

I have to thank my foodie-mate because if not for her, I wouldn't be able to discover this Chinese Restaurant. This is similar to Wai-ying in Binondo except that it is located in Banawe (think car parts and accessories). Also, it is was one the few resto in the area that's open before 8am.

First photo is a very nice luscious-looking hakaw. This is good but I still think that Wai-ying's hakaw is better. It is still filling, though.



Sharksfin siomai. It's not really made from sharks fin so there's no animal-cruelty involved unless one is a vegetarian. And this is G O O D and I am not really fond of siomai but this one is so so G O O D. See? G O O D.



Congee with century egg. Like siomai, congee is not something I will order unless someone forced me to. I usually associate congee with fever (visualize a sick child who can't swallow anything but congee/porridge). And surprise, surprise. I liked it. Very flavorful and filling. It warms not only the tummy but the heart as well. Brings back happy memories of childhood when warmth means being entwined in a parent's embrace.

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.
