My cousin just arrived from Cagayan de Oro City and she brought along a lechon. And because we are neighbors (well, almost neighbors), she gave us some lechon. I was practicing with the camera so I apologize for the not-so-nice photo. The lechon skin was not that crunchy anymore (of course!) but it was very flavorful including the meat parts. Yaya was saying we should buy Mang Tomas for the lechon but I told her that the lechon from Southern Philippines doesn't need any sarsa. And I'm right. Oh what a lovely lunch we had!



 
Tropicana Coco Quench. I first saw this drink from a friend's FB post a few weeks back. I was curious about it but since there's a fresh buko seller who passes by our house every day, the Tropicana drink escaped my mind ... until, I saw it in the grocery the other day. This small pack costs P29. Expensive! But nice packaging. And the verdict --- don't like. It tasted like nata de coco water. Glad that I bought only one.




Munggo with lechon bits. I love munggo. Hubby and daughter loves to eat munggo. We eat munggo almost once a week. Sometimes it has alugbati leaves, or ampalaya leaves or saluyot. Or just plain munggo then will just fry some dried fish. But since we still have some leftover lechon (there's still some in the fridge), I added it to the munggo. Wow! Tastes good. 




Frabelle's Hamonado Longganisa. Frabelle is a new brand discovery in the grocery. Actually, I've read about Frabelle's hotdog on the internet and we tried it already. Its a welcome alternative to Purefoods and Swifts hotdogs. So when I saw this hamonado longganisa in the grocery, I did not hesitate to buy it. It turns out, its not the usual kind of longganisa. This one is like a sausage but tastes like longganisa. Hubby and daughter enjoyed it. I do find it delicious and flavorful also but after eating a few bites, I developed allergy. I'm guessing it has more than a fair share of msg (which I'm allergic to). Luckily, sugar is just within reach so I'm saved. But I will buy this again since hubby and daughter likes it. Must try are Frabelle's hotdog and cheese hotdog. Those I can eat every day without any allergic reaction. It has other food products also but I haven't tried them yet. Soon! :)

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
