Tim Ho Wan: Coming Soon in Manila

Tim Ho Wan has the best pork buns, or so I was told when I went to The Great Hong Kong Food Adventure last October. Actually, I've also been meaning to eat in this dim sum place which has received a Michelin Star but I got sidetracked with other things. The original branch is a few steps away from City Garden Hotel in Sham Shui Po where we had our OpenRice luncheon but I saw a branch in IFC Mall which was really crowded when I passed by so I ended up somewhere with Macarons! Hahaha. But my foodie companion bought tons of delicious pork buns from Tim Ho Wan as his pasalubong. 

Btw, I love pork buns and before I heard of Tim Ho Wan, I am in-love with Lugang's Pork Buns.

But then again, good news for foodies in Manila. Tim Ho Wan is opening soon in SM Megamall. Nice! I am just a short ride away from that mall. NB: Be ready to fall in line because waiting for a table maybe quite long-ish. Don't say I didn't warn you. ;)

I guess 2014 is something to look forward to for foodies like me and you. :)

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.

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!
