Yabu-ness Monday

Finally! We were able to eat at Yabu without having to line-up nor get pressured to finish our meal quickly because of the long queue. Best time to dine is around 1pm, Monday. ;)



Had fun grinding the sesame seeds then adding sauce and chili powder. Also, it will distract you a bit while waiting for your food if you're that hungry- like me. Hahaha


J ordered the chicken katsu, 150g. Yum!


Mine's the pork katsu, 100g. So tender! Alas, I felt dizzy after eating. Either because -> fried or because -> pork. Must share next time. ;) We also love the unlimited rice (C had 2 cups, I think) and the unlimited cabbage. Love the sesame-mayo dressing!


This is shobe's order. I forgot to ask what it is but I guess its delicious because she finished the whole bowl.

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.
