Celebrating Father's Day at Mario's

Father's Day is just around the corner but we already celebrated it a week early at Mario's.  It was a not-so-suprise treat for hubby because we've been celebrating Father's Day (Mother's Day) a week early to avoid the crowd, but ends up celebrating again on the exact day (along with the crowd)- haha.

Luckily, we went to Mario's on a Sunday because they have lunch buffet and we haven't tried that yet.  Also, we love the relaxed and homey ambiance of the restaurant. 


Cochinillo!!!! I always check the carving station first whenever I dine at buffet restos. Aside from this delicious cochinillo (I soooo love the "balat"), Mario's also have turkey, beef, and lamb. 


The buffet choices varies every week except for the carving station and we were told that a Special Father's Day menu is being created.

We started our meal with some baked oysters and pinsec frito from the appetizer section. There's also some salad and sushi rolls.


There's some pasta, salmon, beef, pork, chicken dishes ... Hubby enjoyed the salmon :)


Paella Negra. Hubby doesn't really comment on food but this paella negra left a pretty good impression on him and even compared it to another resto's paella negra and says that Mario's paella negra is better (and to think that he used to like that resto's paella negra). 


Here are the desserts- daughter and I love the creme brulee and the tiny chiffon cakes with caramel fillings. 


Mario's famous Ceasar Salad. This is not on the buffet spread but is included. You can order this and maybe have this prepared right in front of you. Really, really good ceasar salad. 


Here's what the resto looks like. This area is a bit far from the buffet table but it offers more privacy than the tables near the buffet spread. And did I mention that there's a live piano bar during Sunday lunch? 


Here are my loves while enjoying the sumptuous buffet at Mario's. Happy Father's Day to my hubby. Thank you for being the Best Dad to our daughter.

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood. 

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!
