The Amazing Johnny Chow

Hubby and cousin J and I had a late dinner here the other night. J and I were supposed to join momsie, daughter and Lilith for dinner but they already ordered room service at Maxims and we don't feel like eating inside the hotel room.

So dinner was a choice between Johnny Chow and Johnny Chow-- hahaha. Can't think of any other place to eat. Besides, I've only eaten here once (with momsie, last February) and I didn't have my camera with me and it was a quick dinner since I have work that time. But whatever it is that we ate then had a lasting impression so I vowed to come back and dine in again.


Spicy Steamed Peanuts. You get this for free while waiting for your orders. I guess this is a healthier option to fried peanuts. ;)


Xiao Long Bao. Tastes okay. But then, I forgot to eat this while its still hot/warm so by the time I had a bite, the texture of the skin was already rubber. Still, the filling was flavorful though.


I was the one who ordered this but I forgot what its called. Quite good also. Nice dish to begin a meal- a conversation piece.


Yang Chow Fried Rice. J and I thought that the serving is just right so we ordered another fried rice but we were wrong. This yang chow is good for 3-4 pax. And I think its delicious since J almost finished the whole order by himself.


Salted Fish Fried Rice. This is what hubby and I shared. Yum! I love salted fish fried rice. :D


Sweet and Sour Pork. J didn't share this with us. Must be good! Hehe


Super Tender Lechon Macau-like dish. I think I'm in pork heaven while eating this. Hubby who usually shuns pork also fell in-love with this dish. I'm definitely coming back for this! :)


We're happy with our dinner and happy with the bill since we were also given a 10% discount for being a RWM card holder. Yey!

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.
