Ramen Mondate

First time to eat here. Lucky us because we went to the ramen house early because the waiting line is quite longish during lunch and dinner time.




Daughter and I ordered the Ajitama Tonkotsu. This is one of the popular ramen at Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen.  I asked the waitress is the serving is good for sharing and she said yes. So daughter and I agreed to share a bowl.

The broth was rich in flavors but I find it salty. However, daughter said its not salty. I guess I have a low tolerance for salt. Anyways, the pork was very tender. We opted for the "normal" cooked noodles. You can choose between soft, normal and hard. Maybe hard is equivalent to al dente. We love the soft boiled egg and the mushrooms. Thumbs up for this ramen! :)




I asked for their house tea. A bit unusual since I'm expecting a hot drink. But then, the cold rice tea tastes the same as the hot counterpart so its okay. You can even ask for refills. :)




Daughter enjoying her ramen while listening to Vocaloid. Very Japanese!

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.
