Rediscovering Mann Hann

We used to frequent Mann Hann because the food tastes great but because I had a not so nice service experience with them years ago, I crossed out the restaurant from my list. I don't really have plan to dine at Mann Hann again (ever) but serendipity strikes. One of my high school classmates arrived from Qatar and wanted to meet with us for lunch. I suggested Robinsons Magnolia since its the middle ground for all of those who are attending. I was about to suggest some restaurants but the host a.k.a. the one who will pick the tab chose Mann Hann. ;)


Chicken Feet. Photo doesn't look appetizing but tastes exactly the opposite. This was wiped-out.


Siomai. I ordered this but wasn't able to have a bite. I wonder why?


Yang Chow Fried Rice. Thumbs up! I enjoyed every morsel.


Spareribs. Super yummy. It says spicy on the menu but its spiced just right. I can concentrate on this dish alone.


Steamed Broccoli with Garlic. Good. Steamed vegetables creates a nice balance between the oil-y dishes.



We're too full to order desserts so we skipped that. Overall, everyone including me was happy with our lunch. And I guess I'm now also ready to give Mann Hann another chance and go back to the branch where my love-hate relationship with the restaurant began. ;)

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.
