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.

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!

PRODUCT REVIEW: XTREME HOME Coffee Machine XH-ESCM

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.
