Sundate at Sariwon

I've been curious about Sariwon, a Korean restaurant since it opened in Promenade but I haven't had the time to dine until last Sunday because daughter wanted to visit her beloved Fully Booked.

Actually, this is Sariwon's second branch, the first one is in BGC (too far!) and we don't really frequent the area because of the traffic and the distance.


Ban Chan. Look at that! The server mentioned that everything is unlimited, all we have to do is ask. Wow! Daughter and I liked that mashed potato/squash so much that we had 2 servings each. The potato and squash are well mashed that its really hard to decipher which is which. Must try! Then there's the peanuts which we thought at first was salty/spicy but turned out sweet/salty, we had an extra serving. Another favorite is the soya sprouts in sesame oil and the marble potatoes that merited another extra serving. The lettuce salad was quite good also. The kimchi was too spicy for me but I like it  nonetheless. We haven't had the main fare yet but we're already full thanks to the ban chan. And the servers are all really nice and attentive and smiling which makes the meal much more special.


Dwaeji Galbi. Grilled pork loin. I ordered this because we already had lunch with hubby earlier but daughter and I just wanted to please our cravings. This is grilled already although there's tons of choices if you want to grill the meat yourself. Nah, I still have to go somewhere afterwards and I don't want to smell like food. Even if we said we won't be eating rice and will just pair the grilled meat with the ban chan but the dwaeji galbi was so flavorful that we can't help but order a bowl of rice. This order is good for 2-3 pax and only costs P380 (excluding tax).


We're planning to go back again soon so and try grilling the meat ourselves. That's us- ready to devour the meal in front of us. ;)

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 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.
