CEBU: La Marea's Famous Warm Brownie Cup

What is this gargantuan octopus doing inside a restaurant? This is what came to mind when I saw this inside La Marea. But then again, I suddenly remembered that "marea" roughly means the sea, or water. So that sort of answer my question- hehe.


La Marea is a famous dessert hangout in Cebu City. The branch we went to is in Banilad area.


Here are some of the sinfully-looking cake choices at La Marea. Had I not been full (literally bursting), I would've gotten a slice. But as it is, I can just admire and drool.


Another view of the cakes and other sweet temptations!


Here's what I got- warm brownie cup. Underneath the ice cream is warm brownie. Just imagine the combination of warm brownie and cold ice cream ... simply divine. I'm glad that I was able to taste this before I left Cebu (literally). I was scheduled to fly back to Manila a few hours after my La Marea detour. Its one of the food and dining places on my list so I think I have a valid excuse. ;)

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.
