Double Yummy At UCC


Funny thing happened. Daughter had a theatre date with cousins and aunt O. So while waiting for them, me and C had fun exploring Newport Mall and RWM. We had a light dinner at Noodle Works. Then we got tired and decided to have dessert at UCC (will blog about it soon). Went around the mall a bit after dessert and then C left when O texted me that the musicale just ended and she'll text me again where they'll be having late dinner. Hahaha. They ended up at UCC, too. Yes, I know, the food there tastes good. I'm not complaining. ;)




Mango-Kani Salad. Since I'm still full, I just ordered salad. I love mango-kani salad... except that ... the mango was sour. I like my ripe mango sweet. But then, ripe mangoes are unpredictable when it comes to sweetness so its ok. Yum yum crab stick also.




Mushroom Pasta. O's order. Good!




Fried Chicken Omu-Rice. Winner! R ordered this. It was served piping-hot so don't just happily dig-in. ;)




Salmon and Shrimp Omu-Rice. Daughter ate this. She loves anything with shrimp and salmon. However, because the omu-rice has a hint of spiciness, we had it changed to plain rice. Daughter says two thumbs up.




Lengua Omu-rice. O and N was supposed to share this but N ate it all. Delish?




Sugar Crystals. For coffee or for the cakes. Crunchy. Kids love this. :)




Sugarfree Tiramisu. O's dessert.

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.
