Sumptuous Lunch At Gloria Maris

One fine Saturday, an aunt celebrated her birthday at Gloria Maris, Greenhills. This is the first time again that I've eaten in Gloria Maris since May 2012 because the restaurant moved to its new location. Will blog about it soon!



Fried Chicken. I know its yummy but I've been avoiding chicken like crazy for the past months now because of allergy. :(  Luckily, I can still eat the kropek while watching my family savor the chicken.




Cold Cuts Platter. I love love the jellyfish and century egg. The meat are also good.




Mixed Veggies and Mushrooms. Big slices of mushrooms that sends off juicy yummy goodness with each bite. Chew carefully though or you might choke. Hehehe.




Sweet and Sour Fish. Its okay. I just don't heart any sweet and sour dishes. But I love the carrot bird decor. So cool!



Birthday Noodles. I guess eating this year after year on one's birthday will really give you long life. The noodles are really really long! Dish is flavorful and the meat, tender. I just don't like the shrimps because its the frozen-type that you can buy from the supermarket.

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.
