FOOD FINDS: Yamato Bakery's Croughnuts

Several months back, we've witnessed the croughnuts (cronuts) craze and everyone just can't seem to have enough of them. I wrote about my first croughnut experience here and that was like ages ago.

And because daughter and I happen to have dinner somewhere near Yamato Bakery along Jupiter (not the planet) Street in Makati, I told her we need to check the croughnuts nearby.

There are about 4 to 5 croughnut selections that night but we just bought one each. Mine's the green tea (of course) and daughter got the vanilla.

Green Tea Croughnuts, P130. I can't say its love at first bite and what really comes to mind was flavored "bicho-bicho." Hahaha. But the green tea on top tasted good however, the green tea filling was just too much for me to enjoy the croughnut. I needed to scrape some off.



Vanilla Croughnut, P120. I'm glad daughter chose this over the strawberry. Tasted pretty good except for the sugary flaky part that makes you think you're eating "bicho-bicho." Its oily though so its not advisable to finish the whole croughnut in one sitting. On the other hand, it still tasted good the following day. We placed it inside the fridge and ate it cold.


Maybe I'll try some of the other croughnuts soon or maybe not. Stay tuned!

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.
