RECIPE: Pancit Pusit by Chef Tatung

This is a classic Caviteno dish shared by Chef Tatung Sarthou during his cooking demonstration at The Maya Kitchen. This dish is also known as Pansit Choco En Su Tinta. The Pansit Pusit is rice noodles with rich squid ink sauce, topped with vegetables, crushed chicharon, squid rings, and kamias slices.


Ingredients:

3 pcs pusit or squid
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 medium onion, sliced
2 pcs chili finger, seeded, thinly sliced
2 pcs laurel leaves

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
pepper to taste
400 grams sotanghon, soak in cold water
salt and pepper for seasoning
kinchay, thinly sliced
crushed chicharon
8 pcs of kamias, sliced


Prepare the squid by cleaning and removing the long plastic and the small sack of liquid ink inside. Set aside quid ink for later use. Slice the squid into rounds including the tentacles. Wash thoroughly and drain. Set aside.

Saute garlic, onion, chili finger and the laurel leaves. The fire should be set high then immediately add the squid and continue to saute for two minutes.

Put the vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce and the squid ink. Let it boil. Add 1 cup of water. Let it boil for two minutes.

In a medium fire, add the sotanghon. Mix thoroughly until the noodles absorb the soup or stock. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then add the kinchay.

Garnish it with crushed chicharon. Toasted garlic can also be added if you want it to be more flavorful. Serves 3-4 pax

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. ;)
