Dinner With Good Friends at Mario's

One of the nicest things about close friends is that you may not see each other as often as you like but when you do, it means long hours of "chikahan" and "kainan." Of course, going to a nice restaurant that serves good and wholesome ambiance is also a factor to consider since most of the time, we have our kids with us.


We had Baked Oysters for appetizers. You'll know that the chikahan is gonna be great when there's oysters. ;)


Gambas. The kids love this! The shrimp is succulent and juicy. Best paired with rice.


Roast Beef with mashed potato. Daughter had this. Love at first bite, according to her.


Pan-grilled Gindara. For the health-conscious, but really, this is delish! Squeeze in some lemon on top, and take a sip of white wine, and you're all set for a great evening.


Lengua with mashed potatoes. I love this. the lengua is so tender.

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity! 

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!
