Sweet Treats at Pia Y Damaso

There are a lot of dessert choices from cakes, ice cream, chocolates, but most of the time, good ol' Filipino "panghimagas" are still the best. Here are some of the yummylicious dessert offerings of Pia Y Damaso.

Looks can be deceiving. I almost didn't get to taste this because we still have some waffle at home but this Bibingka Waffle is really a "bibingka" waffle. And I love bibingka and Christmas. ;) This bibingka waffle is topped with salted egg and quezo de bola, with jojo jam. It would've been nice if there's some grated coconut to complete the bibingka experience but this is a masterpiece of its own. Thumbs up.



Sisa's Dementia is a sinfully-looking chocolate cake that will make you forget of past injustices. Sisa is a character from Noli Me Tangere and this cake evokes erases all poignant memories. This is a love moist chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and dark chocolate mousse.


Goat Milk Leche Flan. No one can refuse leche flan and this one from Pia Y Damaso uses goat's milk and has a generous "dayap" flavor so the flavor is much more intense


Pepay, The Dancer Halo Halo. Hurray for Pepay's halo halo. It has all the yummy ingredients that a halo halo should have: ube, leche flan, beans, saba, langka, pastillas, and goat's milk. Yummy!


Brazo ni Dona Vicki. Dona Vicki refers to Dona Victorina in Noli Me Tangere. This brazo de mercedes is sweetened just right, with the perfect blend of meringue and egg custard. I'd love to pair this with tea. :)

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.
