Touchdown At Johnny Chow

This is where I had my pre-midnight dinner upon arriving from Hong Kong early this month. Really a no-brainer since I'm craving for chinese food and RICE (I felt deprived when I was in Hong Kong). And look at the interiors- I was able to appreciate it this time since there's only 3 tables occupied and that includes us (with hubby and daughter).


Waiting time was not that long since the restaurant was practically empty. But then, its almost midnight and almost everyone's at the cemetery or enjoying an out-of-town trip.


Lechon Macau. This is Johnny Chow's bestseller. The meat was very tender and flavorful, and the skin- crunchy! Daughter said she can eat the whole order herself. The yellow things in the middle are fried pineapples. I guess we all know that pineapple can lower blood pressure. ;)


Johnny Chow's Fried Rice. This is their version of the Yang Chow. I'm not really into fried rice except when its Salted Fish Fried Rice but this is good. A meal by itself. Generous serving also. Good for 2-3 pax.



Calamari. This is so good except that its a bit spicy for daughter. Oh well, she's concentrating on the lechon macau so no harm done.


To sum it up, the meal was a success. Two thumbs up. Also, one can get a discount if you present your RWM card. ;)

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.
