Lunch At Casa Roces

I've been wanting to dine again at Casa Roces since hubby celebrated his birthday there two weeks ago. There's still lots on the menu that I haven't tried so I need to satisfy my cravings. Luckily, my daughter's ninang happened to visit today so we happily went to Casa Roces.

As always, the restos interiors and the friendliness of the staff did not disappoint. And we got to seat (again) at our favorite table.

Ninang ordered the humba and daughter ordered the chicken inasal. I just ordered additional rice since based from my previous dining experience there, the servings are good for two people.



Humba. This is a popular Batangas dish that is usually made from pork legs and with banana flowers. Their version was made from pork belly, which was very delicious and tender. Melts in your mouth goodness. The meat was delish but the sauce was a bit thick and overpowering. A bit salty also but my friend said that it is because of the "tausi" or black beans. The meat tastes perfectl fine. The turn-off though was the "fat." As in I didn't get to enjoy it that much because I was busy separating the fat from the meat.




Chicken Inasal. Here's a dish with a W-O-W factor. Very tender and succulent. My daughter enjoyed every morsel on her plate. Well, not really since I asked for some slices. Compared with the Humba, this is the dish that I would gladly recommend without any embarrassing thoughts that it won't live up its reputation.

We capped off our meal with cakes but I'm saving it for another entry. Ciao!

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.
