CEBU: Michel's Deli + Cafe

Michel's Deli + Cafe is managed by the same owners of La Vie Parisienne. Unlike La Vie Parisienne, Michel's has a much more casual appearance compared to its sister. I chanced upon this deli because it is just beside the restaurant where we ate a very late lunch.


Michel's Deli + Cafe is located in Banilad, Cebu which I think is fast becoming a restaurant hub.


The food and drinks selections rivals that of Santi's here in Manila. Also, the prices at Michel's are affordable although there are also expensive ones.


There's also a comfy spot if you want to have tea, coffee, soda or wine. I'd love to bring my book here and sit in one corner as I sip wine, and eat cheese and bread.


I've already had a bottle of their sparkling wine in Manila and since my friend's sister just celebrated her birthday, I got her a bottle of raspberry flavored wine. Sante!


I also managed to buy some bread before heading off to the hotel.


Freshly baked breads! I'm in bread heaven since I need to eat carbs also (I'm on a no-rice diet).


Here are just some of the wine selections at Michel's Deli + Cafe.

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.
