Yabba Yabba Yabu

February 20, 2013

Daughter and I had a spur-of-the-moment dinner plan with C, little C and Uncle Panda today at Yabu in Robinsons Magnolia. So as soon as daughter's class ended today, we were off to Magnolia. Actually, I was dreaming of Thai food but since Uncle Panda haven't tried dining at Yabu (gasp!) yet- and also, because C is treating us (and also as an advance birthday treat to daughter) so we ended up there. Besides, I love the food at Yabu.



And the D-I-Y sauce ... A great stress reliever, too. ;)


Daughter seriously grinding the sesame seeds into oblivion ...



And I am wiser with my tonkatsu order this time. I got the 90g only. See, I'm on a DIET diet (Did I Eat That?) hahaha. Also, I don't want to experience (again) my blood pressure shooting up because of pork tonkatsu overload like what happened to me the first time I ate at Yabu (takaw kasi e).



Daughter had the Fish Kiddie Meal (it was so konti! but she ate half of my tonkatsu anyway so its okay), C ordered seafood, little C had the chicken katsudon set and Uncle Panda ordered pork katsudon set.





Aside from unlimited cabbage and rice, you can also get a second serving of the miso soup.

Afterwards, we enjoyed some shopping before having coffee and milktea at Happy Lemon. Another treat for Uncle Panda.

Daughter received an early present (aside from the dinner treat) from tita C. Thank you !!! I also, got one- yey!

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.
