71 Gramercy

My first "gimik" of the year was last January 2 and me and my dates ended up on the highest bar/lounge in town. I've already been to 71 Gramercy thrice but that was to attend an event. This time, the intention was to have a real good time with friends. :)


But before we went to 71 Gramercy, we had dinner at 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub.

I had Lychee Martini and my friend ordered something blue. Another friend had a refreshing glass of lime water- hahaha. We paired the drinks with calamares.

I love my drink. Thumbs up to the bartender! The blend of martini and lychee was perfect and delicious! My friend also enjoyed her blue drink. Even the calamares was perfect. The batter was crunchy and the squid soft. Amazingly good. Value for money and its not even that expensive.



It was a lovely night, a bit chilly, but we all had fun. The only downside was the lack of chairs. There was a party that time and every tables we already reserved-- boo hoo hoo.




N.B.
Walk-in guests (like us that night) were required to pay first for the food and drinks being ordered. Dress code is casual chic.

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.
