RECIPE: TKG's Pajeon

Watching tons of kdramas can really make you crave and enjoy Korean dishes and my home is not an exemption. And I love replicating dishes so here's my version of pajeon. By the way, pajeon is akin to Japanese okonomiyaki. Checking online, "pa" refers to spring onions, while "jeon" is pancake (source: This is so very easy to make and great as snack.


4 medium size eggs
2 stalks leeks, sliced into inches
4 tbsp kimchi (or as desired), cut into small pieces
3 tbsp Maya all-purpose flour
1 tsp black sesame
1 tbsp Dona Elena olive oil
6 pcs large shrimps, cut into small pieces
a pinch of salt

*** I used store-bought kimchi

In a bowl, beat egg and gradually add the flour. Add about 1/3 of the leeks, and everything except for the oil. Make sure to mix well. Coat non-stick pan with oil until it heats up then add the pajeon batter. Cover the pan and wait for it to cook. Add the remaining leeks if the pajeon is almost done. Serving is good for 2-3.


  1. Yay! I am a fan of Korean Cuisine. I can eat Bibimbap for a year haha! Thanks for sharing this. Will definitely try this. Shere did you get your Kimchi mommy? Thank you ☺

    1. Got my stash of kimchi from the Korean grocery in Greenhills. A small small round container costs P50-60. But if you can consume tons of kimchi at home, its cheaper to buy it per kilo. That's around P400. I did try making kimchi but I'm not yet confident with my recipe though ...

  2. It looks like pizza! Interesting to try!

  3. Yeah, perfect 10-inch thanks to my pan :)

  4. Oh my! This looks so yummy. I super love Korean food but I've never tried to cook it myself. I can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I learned to love Korean food because of KDrama.. hahaha...

  5. This is new to me , I must try this at home as my family will surely love it.

    1. You can also tweak the recipe by using other ingredients :)

  6. This is interesting. Not a foodie here so most dishes that are not too common are new to me, but my husband is a big foodie, he'll definitely love this.

  7. This looks enticing! I wonder what's the taste of this one.

  8. It looks really good. I want to try it at home. Thanks.


  9. I love Pajeon but I haven't tried making it. This looks delicious!

  10. Para pala siyang shawarma because of the onions, pero pancakes chaka shrimps! Sarap! Hihihi! I wonder what it'll taste like with meat? =)

  11. It looks yummy :-) I asked hubby to try this na iluto for us

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
