FOOD FINDS: Unit 16 Sweets

Daughter and I happen to see the food bazaar in Glorietta last Sunday and espied this stall selling chocolates. Actually, what attracted us are the nice wrappers ... then the flavors!

After playing (or was it watching) Kingdom Hearts last year, daughter's been bugging me about Sea Salt Ice Cream. I guess Sea Salt Chocolate is the next best thing! ;)


So we bought a bar of Sea Salt chocolate and another bar- Peppermint Chocolate (I love chocolate mints). A bar costs P50, not bad and its locally made too.



We first tried the Sea Salt Dark Chocolate or rather, dark chocolate with sea salt. Wow! Love at first bite. Even hubby enjoyed it. I love how the sea salt breaks the creaminess of the chocolate. Another wow factor is that the texture is very smooth, no grainy bits.

As for the Peppermint Dark Chocolate, I love the minty flavor but I find the chocolate sweet and not dark chocolatey-ish. Texture is similar to the other one. Thumbs up!

Both flavors lack the bitterness of dark chocolate though but I'd still give it a thumbs up. And by the way, the smooth texture is similar to Serg's! Haha. Serg's was a childhood favorite so I'm not sure if all of you are familiar with it especially the young one's. ;)

You can find Unit 16 Sweets on facebook.

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.
