NEW RESTO ALERT: Cafe Naci

Although not a necessarily new restaurant, Cafe Naci found its new home in Greenhills after moving from BGC.



Kani Mango Crunch.  This is a new twist to the famous kani salad and I think they quite pulled it off. 


Adobo Cannelloni. Meat is very tender and I love its cheesy-ness.


Smoked Salmon & Potato Pancakes.


Bacon Liempo w/ Garlic Rice.


Peruvian Chicken Rice.This is my favorite as I love paellas, risottos, fried rice .. well, anything that is rice. ;) A great and satisfying meal. Serves 4-5 depending on one's appetite.


Crispy Fried Chicken. Buttermilk goodness that's very comforting especially on a rainy day.


Chef Ed's Pork Shanks.The meat is so tender and flavorful.


Beef Caldereta Lasagna.


Braised Beef Ossobuco.


Mango Panna Cotta. I think it needs more sugar (I have a sweet tooth!). :D


Mini Pistachio Sansrival. This is definitely one of the best sansrival that I've tasted. Good for sharing, and best paired with a cup of coffee.

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.
