Via Mare

Via Mare has been around for more than three decades having opened its first restaurant in Greenbelt 1. It serves Filipino comfort food such as dinuduguan, puto bumbong and bibingka. But what I love best at this restaurant is their molo soup.

This is also one of those restaurants that's close to my heart having dined here when I was young and with my parents and aunt who were now long gone. I have a lot of happy memories dining here.



And if we have some balikbayan guests, there's a 101% possibility that we will dine here.


Salad with Crispy Liempo. Tastes good! I love the special vinaigrette.


Crispy Boneless Dilis with Fried Rice. Another winner here except that I don't eat rice anymore. *sigh*


Molo Soup. Not really photogenic but this is really, really good. Very flavorful. It will remind you of your mom or lola. :)

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.
