Baguio Food Tour 2015: Grumpy Joe

This is a yummy pizza discovery introduced to us by Vincent of LakbayBaguio.com


It was our last night at Azalea Residences because all are going back to Manila except me (annual summer vacation with the family) and we all feel like just staying at the hotel and rest. Then Vincent hit upon the idea of a pizza party and ordered a box of Grumpy Joe's Five-Cheese pizza for all of us plus Seafood Pesto Pasta (sorry no pasta photo).

The play of five different cheeses in the pizza worked its magic. I mean, I love pizza and I can eat it every day but this pizza now belongs to my top 5 best pizza. The dough is thick but soft. It is chewy and lightly salted so that one will be able to enjoy the pizza's toppings without compromise. Bon appetit!



These lovely girls agree that Grumpy Joe's Five-Cheese pizza is definitely the best pizza in the whole wide world ... er, Baguio City! ;)

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.
