RECIPE: Tokwa't Baboy

It's been raining and flooding like crazy for almost a week now that today's ray of sunshine made everyone happy including me. Of course I enjoyed the monggo, the nilaga, the sopas, the sinigang, etc during the rainy days but I'm craving for something different tonight, something I haven't cooked for ages and something to cheer us up at home as we finally bid goodbye to Maring (typhoon Trami).



Ingredients:

4 pcs tokwa or 1 block of tofu, cut into cubes
1/4 pork cubes (I used liempo cut into bite-size pieces)
oil
wansoy or kinchay, minced
1 medium onion, sliced
half clove garlic
ground pepper
salt
small piece of ginger, julienned
Knorr Liquid Seasoning (original)
Mama Sita's  Oyster Sauce
Golden Sail Chinese Cooking Wine
green chili pepper (optional)


Fry the tokwa or tofu cubes in oil until golden brown. Salt-rub the pork and then fry in a little bit of oil until golden brown and crunchy. Cook ginger and garlic, toss in the tokwa and pork and add seasonings and onions. Add the wansoy or kinchay before removing from pan. Bon appetit!

  2. sis, you can also use pork face/ears but it takes a longer time to cook since you have to boil it pa :)

    1. Is it ok to boil and grill the pork? Para hindi na igisa

    2. Ok din to boil and grill. Actually, marami naman versions and pagluluto ng tokwa't baboy. Yun version ko is more on pang-ulam since it has sauce. :)

    1. Hi, sis. Actually you can skip the cooking wine. I just saw it sa shelf when I made the tokwa't baboy. I have a friend who tweaked my recipe and used atsuete oil so reddish ang color ng dish :)

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.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.
