Dimsum Feast At The Summer Palace

It doesn't always happen that one can enjoy unlimited dimsum at the Summer Palace unless there's a special promotion. Lucky us!




Xiao Long Bao. W o W! No need to elaborate.




Hakaw. Its okay.




Spicy Squid. So tender melt-in-your-mouth goodness. And not that spicy, too. Perfect!




Pork Siomai. Best to eat this last as it's too heavy on the stomach. Tastes good, though.




Scallop Siomai. Another wow! So huge! But then, I think this is a mock-scallop. ;)




Asado Siopao. I love, love the siopao. Extra order please!



To sum it up, my friend C and I enjoyed our lunch. BURP. And there's still lots of dimsum that we haven't tried yet. Too full!

Dessert is included in the buffet also but I forgot to take photos. Next time. :)


tips: avoid pork when starting a meal because it is heavy on the stomach. make sure to eat it last. avoid soda also and drink tea instead. in our case, we settled for water since we don't want to pay for a pot of tea (not included in the promo). hehe. avoid rice and skip the noodles, also.

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!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
