Interesting Resto Find In Subic


Since most of the restos that we went to are either closed or unappealing, we chanced upon this goldmine after a few missed turns (n.b. be careful when driving in subic, you can get easily ticketed!).


Koko Buri. Actually, a friend recommended this resto but the one she ate it was in Angeles City and we crossed it off our list since it's a bit far from Subic. Luckily, we found a newly opened one just a block away from Puregold Duty Free. Yey !!!


Calamares. Beer battered and double-fried to perfection. And it's so cheap too. Costs only P150 for a hefty serving. The dip wasn't that exceptional though. Two thumbs up!


Soy Chicken. This is the one-piece soy chicken. Hmmmm, looks Bon-Chon-ish! But that's where the similarity ends. The one from Koko Buri was flavorful in and out. And super crispy too. Yum yum. Single chicken order with rice plus salad (shredded red and green cabbage and honey-mustard dressing in vinegar if I'm not mistaken) only costs P120.00!!! Two pieces chicken meal costs P185. Wow wow wow. Two thumbs up.
Hopefully, we can go back there again soon. Curious to try the pizza, pasta and salad, and other stuff on the menu.
Oh, and by the way. I ordered soy chicken but was instead given spicy chicken so my friends offered to just exchange it for theirs since they know that I don't like spicy food. Then after several minutes. The waiter went back to our table with a plate of complimentary soy chicken from the Chef saying that the Chef misunderstood my order. Big thank you, Mr. Chef. Our dining experience was made truly memorable with your service-orience gesture. I believe that what you did was a rarity nowadays in most restaurants. We are happy campers indeed. :)

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.
