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!

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.
