FOOD FINDS: Chowking's Happy Pao

I have a fascination with pandas so I was curious about Chowking's recently launched Happy Pao. A piece costs P37. There's a Chowking branch near our place but since we don't go to that area often it took me weeks before I was able to get myself a Happy Pao.




Luckily, I saw a Chowking store in SM Megamall earlier and saw the pandas! I bought only one since I know I won't be eating it. At first I thought that it has a meat filling but turns out that Happy Pao Panda is chocolate filled. Yey!

The panda looks too cute and adorable to eat. I gave it to daughter. She said it doesn't look panda-ish since the ears look like eyebrows... haha. But I know its a panda and I'm not eating it. Daughter forgot to eat it also since she has tons of homework today. Maybe she'll eat it for breakfast. :)

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.
