Steveston: Canada's Best Artisan Pizza Now In Manila

This artisan pizzeria which is quite famous in Canada is now here in Manila and already has two branches since it opened in April 2013 along Tomas Morato in Quezon City and the second branch at U.P. Town Center along Katipunan Avenue which opened in October. For being a newbie here in the country, Steveston is doing quite pretty good and the U.P. Town Center branch was quite full when we visited recently.



In a nutshell, Steveston Artisan Pizza originated from Richmond, Canada. Chef Nader Hatami who owns Steveston, created the $450 pizza, a very expensive pizza which is topped with a thermidor of lobster, black Alaskan cod, and a side of Russian osetra caviar.

Classic Ceasar Salad.


Chicken Wings. This is so good! The mango glaze is the winner here because you'll just craze for more. ;)


Brewed Iced Tea. Daughter gives this a two thumbs up. She's the expert on brewed iced teas.


The Elements. Water, Earth, Wind, Fire. Although you can order a whole pizza with two flavor choices, we requested ours to include all the four elements so that we can try all of it. A word of caution though: The "Fire" element is not for the faint-hearted. Well, I chickened out upon seeing all those red chilis. But I bet its good because my foodie companion ate all of it. I love the "Water" element- the one with the shrimps and other seafood bits. By the way, the white ball in the middle is called bocchini cheese. Bocchini cheese are made from the milk of water buffaloes. They are milk in taste and very soft.


Japanese Pizza. It has wasabe dressing aside from the nori and chicken toppings. I heard that this is one of Steveston's bestsellers. Thumbs up!


By the way, the pizza's are all in 12" so this is great for big groups or if you are really, really hungry. Also, I'd like to commend the establishment for promoting biodegradable plates, cups and utensils. Two thumbs up! :)

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.
