Not A Royalty!

After watching a movie at Lucky Chinatown Mall, my friend had a craving for some dimsum and spotted King Chef's 3-5pm dimsum promo. And since she already ate at the resto's Banawe branch, I agreed. We ordered hakaw, quail egg siomai, sharksfin dumpling and kua pao.

Bad service! It took forever to call the waiter's attention and place our order. Then it took them forever to deliver the food on our table. And after 30 minutes of waiting, I bid farewell to my friends since I still have to fetch daughter from school. Tsk tsk tsk.

Then my friend texted me that another friend left after eating the unappetizing dimsums. And it also took then forever to call the waiter's attention when settling the bill. I'm not sure if I want to set foot in this resto again.

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.
