Mondate At C.Verde, Toribox + Serenitea

Daughter and I delivered something to tita M in Greenhills so found ourselves having a pre-dinner snack at Cafeteria Verde or C.Verde in Promenade. It was Princess Y who introduced me to this yummy vegetarian restaurant.

Same old, same old ... we love the vegetarian sliders and watermelon shake. This was my first post about Cafeteria Verde Even daughter love the food there so we've been eating there a lot whenever we go to Greenhills. The sliders are L-O-V-E.



Afterwards, we're still not ready to go home yet (after checking Fully Booked, Regina's and the tiangge) so we walked- yes, we walked from Greenhills Shopping Center up to Toribox. We had fun counting the cars, and telling each other some funny things stories. 

This is actually our first time to dine at Toribox. Actually, we've been passing this place in favor of La Creperie which is just next door because daughter is fond of crepes.  But tonight, we wanted to eat here.



Nice interiors. So cozy and they even have wifi (another plus factor for daughter, lol). Also, the color scheme reminds me of Muji. Simple and clean colors.



The menu board look so cool! I think I want one for our dinning room. Hehe


I ordered Karaage Pops and Chips while daughter had the Karaage Pops with rice. And its super sarap! The karaage pops are so addicting!!! We had another round. 




That's the gravy and italian cheese. There are other flavors to choose from but daughter wanted the cheese. And she made a good choice. What we did was to coat the karaaga pop with cheese then dip it in gravy then pop it in our mouth. Yum yum yum. So happy here. :)



Bought emperor milktea from Serenitea- a few yards away from Toribox. The waiters are very nice when I asked if I can bring in drink from Serenitea.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.
