Tummy Pleasures

Had a nice time chatting with C over buffet breakfast today at Ramada Central Manila. Lucky me- I got to eat (a lot) their crunchy bacon and french toast.

Sorry, no photos of the buffet spread. I had a hard time waking early lately because of the sweltering summer heat. It's like being inside the oven almost every day. 

C texted me yesterday that she and her dad will be in Manila up to today and is it possible for me to meet up with her today (at breakfast!), I readily agreed. Not because I wanted to wake up early but because I haven't seen her for a long time. Also, she mentioned that her dad is not a breakfast eater so there's an extra seat for me at the buffet table- yey! Thank you, uncle!

The bacon, as usual, tasted crunchy and yummy. Not the fatty kind that you get from the grocery. However, I can't say the same for the french toast. It tasted somewhat off this morning. Scrimping on ingredients maybe. But I still enjoyed it since C and I were chatting nonstop. Then I had a plate of salad greens, and bowlful of congee with century egg and siomai, a plateful of watermelon and a slice of melon and two glasses of orange juice. No, I'm not on a diet. I am just not hungry yet. Had McDonald's crispy chicken burger for my midnight snack last night- hahaha. 

Also, C gave me two huge packs of Zubuchon chicharon. Love love love! 




Then I bought mocha roll from Eng Bee Tin as pasalubong for daughter. She just loves this mocha roll. This is my favorite also.

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!
