NEW RESTO ALERT: MoCafe

So I joined another foodcrawl and this time, San Juan was our target area. Our first stop was in MoCafe along Blumentritt in San Juan. The cafe is on the second floor of MoTech Auto Service and you can have your vehicle checked while you dine or simply watch the crew tinker with the cars as you sip your coffee.


Since its still fairly new, the cafe has only sit up to 15 pax but the place itself is spacious enough so I'm guessing more tables and chairs will be attended soon.


Red Velvet Pancake, P90. I am partial to this because of the color- haha. Kidding aside, it has a flavor of its own that's a bit different from the usual pancake.


Chunky Monkey. Refreshing chocolate and banana drink. I love this!


Carbonara ala Hulya, P100. This is another favorite. Creamy sauce in al dente pasta. Thumbs up! I really love this carbonara that my daughter and I went back a few days after our foodcrawl because I was craving for it.


Sirloin Beef Tapa, P95. This is another love-love. Generous serving also. My daughter had this when we visited after the foodcrawl.


Blueberry Pancakes.


Strawberry-Basil Shake. Another blogger ordered this and according to him its weird in a nice way.




Overall, I like the food and the ambiance at MoCafe. Not to mention its proximity to my house which is about 5 minutes aways. :)

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.
