12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub

So this is where I had my first dinner of the year. I had a scheduled dinner date with my mommy friends from school and we all agreed to meet at Century Mall because we haven't been there yet. Actually, we were planning to eat in another restaurant but it was full when we arrived so we ended up at 12 Monkeys.


It was a bit funny because we were checking the menu for dinner but what they have are mostly food that is usually paired with drinks. Haha.

But that didn't deter us from ordering. My friend had the beef pares, another friend the lechon kawali set, and I had the fried chicken.

Food tastes good. Thumbs up! Affordable, too and big portions. Two thumbs up! They also have a band that performs from 10pm onwards.


Beef Pares. Beef was tender and flavorful. Reminds me of my fave beef pares from RK.


Fried Chicken, half order. Tastes like Max's- no kidding. Except that it has some corn and carrots and chives. This is love!


Lechon Kawali. My friend was able to finish this big serving so I'm guessing its good. ;)



Of course, a good dinner is not complete without some drinks so had a short trek to 71 Gramercy.

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.
