Modern Shanghai

My family and I always look forward to discovering new restaurants whenever we go to SM Mall of Asia and we're happy to have dined at Modern Shanghai. It was also almost closing time when we entered the restaurant so there's also the fear that they might not treat us well but ...


... we were ushered in with friendly smiles and led to our table facing the bay. Then I saw these cute lamps that looks like floating flowers. We were a bit distracted by them and forgot our hunger temporarily.


Beef with Scallion. Daughter was craving for beef so I ordered this for her. Portion is good for sharing. The simplicity of this dish doesn't mean its not delicious. The play of flavors in this dish will just make you crave for more.


Jellyfish. I saw this on the menu and I know that I have to order this. Hubby and I shared this, I think daughter had a bite or two. However, I prefer the "other" jellyfish, the one in strips.


Yangchow Fried Rice. What's eating in a Chinese Restaurant without yangchow? Serving is good for 3-4 pax but this was wiped out by hubby and daughter.


Braised Beef Noodle Soup. I ordered a bowl since I am still not eating rice but the staff mentioned that he can split it into two. Thumbs up for the suggestion. I always love beef noodle soup and this one is now included in my favorites. Its hard to find restaurants that serves good quality and tender beef. The broth also tasted divine. Perfect for a chilly night.



Modern Shanghai was our last resto-discovery for 2014. It was already the 29th of December when we visited SM Mall of Asia and I'm glad that we had a pleasurable dining experience here. The food was delicious and warmed our tummies, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to another visit soon.

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.
