Wagyu Steaks At Carmelo's

Carmelo's may just be one of the numerous restaurants in Greenbelt 5 but did you know that this unassuming restaurant serves the best Wagyu steak in Makati? And not only that, the force behind Carmelo's Wagyu Steaks is none other than Christine Santiago- Rivera, who grew up in eating the best steaks at Melo's Restaurant.

Melo's Restaurant is synonymous when it comes to best Certified Angus Beef Steaks and I'm quite surprised that they also own Carmelo's. Actually, Melo is in fact, Carmelo Santiago, the founder of the restaurant with the best quality steak in town. I'm sure all of you know Melo's and House of Wagyu Stone Grill.






Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms. It has shrimps and crab and is generously topped with parmesan cheese. Really good and flavorful.


Oyster Rockefeller. Plump and juicy oysters topped with cheese and bacon bits. Yum!


Fresh Oysters. Fresh oysters with cocktail sauce. This is best paired with a glass of wine. Perfect appetizer when on a date! ;)


Foie Gras with caramelized apples. This is my fave amongst the appetizers. The foie gras has a buttery soft texture and tastes heavenly. The caramelized apples gives it an added flavor that wakes up the senses after having a bite of foie gras. The portions are huge too, I mean, compared with those in hotel buffets. ;)


Caprioska. This is a cocktail mixture of vodka, lychee and grapes. What I like about this drink is that its fruity and sweet. You really can't detect that taste of vodka but you know its there so drink moderately.


Caesar Salad. Crisp greens on a plate is quite refreshing to the eyes.


Pumpkin Soup. So smooth and delicious. Very filling and I just love it with the bread roll. Did I mention that the breads at Carmelo's are just as good also?


Wagyu Striploin. Mouthwatering Wagyu steak cooked medium rare. Although I usually prefer medium well when it comes to eating my steak, I can't help but enjoy the flavor and juiciness of the meat within. I had some gravy for added flavor but its good as it is.


Wagyu Ribeye


Wagyu TBone


Lamb Chops. Cooked to perfection. Did you know that if meat spent too much time in the grill it becomes hard to chew and lose its natural juices?


Chilean Seabass.


That's us before the main course- all smiles as we enjoy the appetizers in front of us. Bon appetit!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity! 

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!
