RECIPE: Mestizang Kare Kare

You must be wondering about why its called--- Mestizang Kare-Kare, right?

Ingredients:

3-5 pcs lamb chops
1 medium puso ng saging (banana heart), sliced
1 big bunch of peachay
eggplant (optional)
sitaw (optional)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
4 sachets ground Happy Peanuts
1 tsp of peanut butter- I used Reese Creamy
flour or rice flour
1 tsp of bagoong
ground pepper
salt


Instruction:

Boil the lamb chops with the garlic and onion, salt and pepper. When the meat is almost tender, add the puso ng saging. Add some bagoong, peanuts and peanut butter. Use flour to thicken the sauce. Add the pechay last since it cooks easily. Serve with bagoong.

*** Sorry for the unappetizing-looking photo but I assure you that it is super yummy. I ran out of achiote or annato seeds, that's why the sauce is pale in color. And since I made use of lamb chops and not the usual ox tripe or beef, I named the dish--- Mestizang Kare Kare. :)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
