Wee Nam Kee

Because we don't often go to Makati, it took us more than a year before we can have a bite of Wee Nam Kee's chicken that some friends have been raving about. The branch where we visited was in Promenade although there's also another one in Shangri-La Plaza's East Wing.


Daughter and I decided to avoid the lunch crowd by arriving around 2pm. We literally had the place to ourselves for about 10 minutes before two other groups arrive. I love the clean and uncluttered interiors.


Servers were not that accommodating, maybe because they want to have siesta since its 2pm. :P


We were given soup but there's not much to rave about it. Also, soup doesn't taste good if its not hot or warm. Tsk tsk


Soy Chicken. Maybe I got disappointed with the soup and the server because it didn't taste memorable.


Another so-so dish. Even the pork is unrecognizable because its drowning in sweet & sour sauce.


Maybe I'll give it another try after a year or maybe visit another branch. ;)

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.
