NEW RESTO ALERT: Giovanni's Bar & Ristorante

The Araneta Cubao area is fast becoming competitive when it comes to food choices so its no wonder that an authentic (yes, authentic) Italian bistro opened up recently at the Manhattan Parkway, the new condo right after the LRT station.

Giovanni's Bar & Ristorante is owned by Signore Giovanni who is married to a lovely Filipina. This is their newest baby.


The bistro takes pride in its brick oven that produces mouthwatering pizzas. Delizioso!



Signore Giovanni in action.



He also makes the dough himself and if you're a pizza-lover like me, you'll notice that the dough tasted different from other other pizza places in the metropolis. Pizzas costs between P200-P300, with a few exception like P450 for the Bufala (two thumbs up for this), P430 for the Stracchino and 1/2 Metro (1/2 meter pizza where you can combine three different toppings). Pasta and dessert are also offered as well as wine.

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.
