Baguio Food Tour 2015 Day 3

We all had a nice sleep the night before and promised to watch the sunrise. Alas, the warm bed vs the cold early morning air is much more enticing so we all ended up dreaming of sunrise instead. Breakfast was at Tradisyon and I was feeling quite famished when I woke up so here's what I ate ...




We had a short tour of Burnham Park after breakfast and watch the fountains. Then we're off to lunch at Mother's Garden in Upper Fairview. 


Dining at Mother's Garden is not complete without Mother's Garden Salad that has some edible flowers. I fell in love with this salad when we dined here last year. 


After a very relaxing lunch at Mother's Garden, we're off again ... this time for some sweets at Tsokolateria in Upper Session Road. We literally had our fill of chocolates. 


And because all good things must end, we all trooped back to Azalea Residences to rest and wait until 2am when its going home time for the rest of the team. But if course, we all had a slice or two of the delicious 5-cheese pizza from Grumpy Joe's. "The best pizza ever in the whole wide world." - Saki

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.
