Craving For Paella Negra And Crepe

Whenever I discovered a restaurant and the food tastes great, I go back there again, and again and I bring my family and friends.

And my current favorite is Calderon. I just can't get enough of the paella negra. Super sarap!

So when I met up with my college frinds for my post-birthday get-together, I suggested Calderon.




Me and my lovely friends. All of them pursued a teaching career except me.



While waiting for our paella negra, we had the Bacalao ala Vizcaina. This is good but you need tons of bread, trust me. And my friends don't drink so we have to drown ourselves with water. Btw, one of my friends saw her former pupil in Calderon (with his family). Small world indeed!


The famous Paella Negra. Need I say more?  Read about my first Calderon experience here.



Gambas al Ajillo. Yum yum.



Afterwards, we moved in to Calderon's French neighbor--- La Creperie. ;)



Had my favorite salted caramel with vanilla ice cream.



DIY-Crepe that looks like La Christine but with salted caramel syrup.



La Christine.

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.
