A Fiesta !!!

It was a rainy Wednesday morning but the weather didn't dampen the fiesta mood at the Grand Opening of Binalot Harrison Plaza Branch. And according to our elders --- a rain is a blessing. :)

This fiesta-scene reminds me of Larry Alcala. And Binalot is exactly just like that- A Fiesta! It is a place of food, merriment, and camaraderie. A hodgepodge of all the good things that is akin to Filipinos.




I'm not new to Binalot. In fact, hubby (then bf) and I used to frequent Binalot Shangri-La Plaza branch almost every day. That was in the late 90s though and the branch' not there anymore. And that first encounter with Binalot carved a happy memory in our foodie hearts because we kept on dining at other Binalot branch whenever we got the chance. We also love the concept of eating food in a banana leaf. I guess Binalot pioneered that concept in the fastfood arena. And its environment-friendly, too.

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.
