Mu, Share Tea And Toribox All-in-one Goodness

First stop was at Mu Noodle Bar in Wilson Street, San Juan. It's just a few steps away from the P. Guevara intersection.

Mu, in Mandarin means mother. We were supposed to dine here last Mother's Day but we forgot to make reservations and the place was full. We did manage to get a table but the place was really hot so we opted to dine at La Creperie instead.

So, here we are now, just daughter and I (my food-buddy and bff). I'm craving for some beef noodles kasi (thanks to the rain).



Took photos of the menu. Lahat yata masarap! Wow, oyster cake !!! I love oyster cake. My "bestest" oyster cake experience was at Wokk Inn, Malate.


Fried Lice! Ooops, rice pala. ;) Joke came from my Dutch Uncle who loves fried rice.


And the beef noodle soup. We opted for the miso-based and not the soy one.


And here's the beef noodle soup. The waiter said that the serving size is good for sharing. Lucky! The one in the photo is already split into half. Yum! Love the miso broth and the vegetables. But I do find the noodles itself lacking in flavor. But it is a really filling meal so we didn't bother to order more. At least we have an excuse to visit Mu again.


Daughter is curious about the Prawn Omelette while I want the Red Lamb Curry.



Too full but daughter can't resist ordering from Share Tea which is just next door to Mu Noodle Bar.



She got the Nagoya Milk Tea with pearls. Good choice! Love the caramel flavor. Costs P100 for the large glass.



And yes, we are really full but we love Toribox, so we ended up there again (for the nth time). The staff at Toribox are so nice and they also make us feel at home. One of the reasons we love going back there, aside from the addicting Karaage Pops.

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.
