RECIPE: Bibingka

This is a quick and easy bibingka recipe not just for the Christmas Season but all year round. Luckily, I was able to satisfy my bibingka cravings thanks to The Maya Kitchen for sending me some boxes of bibingka mix.



Maybe its the weather, or maybe its because its Christmas Season already that having bibingka for merienda comes to mind. And because daughter and I doesn't have much to do (thanks to typhoon Ruby), we decided to spend time in the kitchen to bake some bibingka for merienda.

Ingredients:

Maya Bibingka Mix, 1 small box
1 egg, medium sized
1 tbsp butter
water
vanilla butter (optional)
1 salted egg, sliced thinly
muscovado sugar
grated coconut

It was quite easy to do, simply follow the instruction at the back of the box. However, I added some vanilla butter to enhance the flavor, added some salted egg, and instead of banana leaves, I used wax paper.

We cooked it in the oven-toasted for about 15-20 minutes. I generously coated the bibingka with butter, added the remaining slices of salted egg, and sprinkled some muscovado sugar. It would've tasted better if I have some grated coconut but its okay. Hubby and daughter enjoyed the bibingka.

  5. Oooh I've seen Maya bibingka mix but I haven't considered buying one...maybe because I wasn't sure it would taste the same? Besides, Bibingka is awesome when it's piping hot. But maybe I'll take your word for it and serve my kids a taste of local Christmas. ;)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
