Saturdate At Omakase

Our friends from Cebu just landed in Manila and we agreed to meet at Omakase for dinner. The last time I saw them was a couple of weeks ago when I visited Cebu and now they're here because its semestral vacation.




Omakase is one of the popular Japanese Restaurants in Green hills and is conveniently located near the carpark. ;)

Omakase Salad. This is their version of kani salad. Everything tastes nice except the lettuce which is far from being fresh and crisp.


Beef Tepan. I am so happy with this. The beef is very tender and juicy. I almost ate all of it. Serving is good for sharing. Hello calories!!!


Pork Tonkatsu. Daughter ordered this. She is crazy about pork tonkatsu lately. Forgot to ask for a bite but I think its good since the bowl was wiped out.


Chicken Bento. A bento meal is always a safe bet when it comes to ordering because it has everything including miso soup.


Seafood Bento. Its okay but the tuna and salmon sashimi is not the greatest.


Here's what daughter look like before we had dinner. Her eyes grow big when she's hungry. Hahaha

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.
