Cherry Shaw Is Now Open

Cherry Shaw's reopening has been nostalgic for me. I grew up near the area and this grocery is quite memorable as I've spent countless trips here with my parents. My happiness then was filling the cart with cookies, chocolates, and other goodies that attracted me as a child, whereas my mother tried to quickly put it back on the shelf when I'm not looking. And when my daughter Isabel was old enough to accompany me in my grocery trips, I actually did the same routine of removing some items from the cart- hahaha. Me and my cousins also spent numerous grocery shopping dates at Cherry Foodarama, then having some quick snack there. I also remember the "castanas" stall because my father always asked me to buy him a kilo or two.


And after months and months of waiting for Cherry to open at its new and bigger location (just several steps away from the old location), Cherry Shaw finally opens its doors once again, and this time, they are staying for good.

The new Cherry Shaw is now managed by SM Markets, and has a wider array of offerings such as fresh fruits, vegetables, meat & poultry, seafood, grocery items which includes Tesco products, a favorite brand in the UK, home, furniture and appliances section, and a whole lot more. There will also be a bills payment counter for the shoppers added convenience and Watsons Pharmacy. What's more, Cherry Shaw has a bigger parking space for everyone.

Grocery shopping at the new Cherry Shaw is also very nice since the aisles are wide, spacious, and well-lit.

Aside from offering a whole new experience of grocery shopping, Cherry Shaw also has a foodcourt aptly called- FOODarama. And Elars Lechon will open at the foodcourt soon. Yes!



Aside from Cherry Shaw, Cherry Congressional is also set to open this week. The new Cherry stores promise to deliver excellent customer service accompanied by a wide range of products to its shoppers. The old Cherry stores also had a make-over to keep up with the times and continue delivering satisfaction to their loyal customers.

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.
