Happiest Hour At UMU

Because we were craving for some Japanese food after our reservation mishap at Midas, we ended up at Umu Japanese Restaurant in Dusit Hotel. Also, we were on a budget since Christmas Season can really put a strain on your pocket. After making reservations at Umu, we were told that we can avail of the Happiest Hour Promo at P950 nett/head. Inclusive of unlimited beer and sake. Wow!






I love the wooden decor with the kanji.



Tamago Sushi and Calfornia Maki. Tastes okay. Nothing to rave about.



I love salmon sashimi. Tuna is just okay. However, When I requested if I can just have a plate of salmon sushi, the one in charge said that its prepared that way. I should just leave the tuna alone if I don't want it. What a wasteful suggestion. Don't worry, I ate the tuna also. :)



Breaded Tofu. Yum!



My bottle of Sake. Nice bottle. Sake tastes a bit like vodka. Sprite please!



Christmassy decor on our table.



Us. From left- C, J, Me and I.



There are lots of sushi to choose from as well as for grilling but I forgot to take pics. Yummiest of the lot (but sadly without pic) was the grilled salmon belly. I love the crunchy skin!

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!
