Emerald Garden Restaurant

When we feel like having breakfast after dropping off the kids to school, this is one of our default breakfast place- the other one is Wai-Ying in Benavidez Street near Ongpin. And because today is a special day (we're off to raid DFS), we need some heavy breakfast for some extra energy. :P

There's only 3 of us today, that's me, C and J. And because there's also the need to lose some pounds before the December parties begin, we agreed to share an order of jumbo siopao (2 thumbs up!), fish congee (I like the one from Wai-Ying), and Beef Mami (thumbs up!).

Jumbo plate-sized Siopao. Good for sharing or if you think you can finish all of it ...






Btw, this post was a long-delayed entry and should be dated November 10, 2012. I remember the date well because today is my mother's 84th birthday had she been alive. And I feel happy because we saw Mayor Alfredo Lim having breakfast when we got there, and he is my mother's favorite mayor and he is wearing yellow-her favorite color. ;)

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! 

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!
