Dinner At Manda Centrale

Oh what fun it is to eat! And bumped into friends at the Manda Centrale early this evening. Also, hubby, daughter and I had a blast checking-out the food stalls one-by-one.


 

Juana Bowl. Daughter can't remove her eyes from the steak as soon as she saw it. An order includes rice and a generous amount of gravy. The steak was very, very tender. Daughter gave me and hubby a few bites each. So takaw!



Dinner crowd. We arrived around 630pm and it was already crowded. Luckily, we were able to get a table at the back of the shawarma stall.


Gino's Brick Oven Pizza. I've been hearing a lot of good reviews about this pizza place so when I saw it at the Manda Centrale, I know I had to order it. Had two slices. Good! But I find it a bit salty. Not cheesy salty but salt-salty. I'm guessing its the herb-mix that the lady generously sprinkled before handing me my order. Highly recommended. I just have a low tolerance when it comes to salt. ;)


Carlo's Kitchen. Crispy Pork Belly. Very, very good! Addicting, too. I had this with rice and it was so, so good. EXCELLENT. Hubby complained though that he felt dizzy afterwards. I teased him that it is because he ate more than a fair share. Hahaha. Four thumbs up!



Flavored Iced Tea. Melon and Buko Pandan, I think. Not that memorable.



The cakes and cheese rolls looks so yummy but we were already bursting. There's always a next time. :)



Okay, I lied about the dessert part. This we can't resist! Had Bailey's gelato and daughter had the Salted Chocolate Cookie Dough.



Shawarma Fusion. I don't know what the fusion part is but this is good. Cheap meal also. And yes, we decided to eat again after the gelato. ;)



Lasagna. Hubby ordered this because (according to him) he missed my soupy(?) lasagna. Sadly, this doesn't taste lasagna-ish to us.  



Moshi-Moshi's Takoyaki. Another excellent find. And super affordable also. Four delicious pieces costs only P40. Nom nom nom. I'm going back for this!

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!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
