NEW RESTO ALERT: Phat Pho Vietnamese Kitchen

I love noodles so when I espied this noodle place in Powerplant Mall, I dragged my family there for dinner.


I'm already familiar with Phat Pho having dined at their restaurant in Banilad, Cebu. What I like about the restaurant at the Powerplant Mall is that it as a "streetfood" vibe to it- from the tables, chairs, and decors. Think "sosyal" na "carinderia" in a mall.


Angus Beef Satay. Costs around P240 and its only three sticks but OMG, it is so good! Beef is very tender (well, hello Angus!) and flavorful, too. Don't bother with the satay sauce, just enjoy the beef because it is flavorful enough. 


Bun Bo Hue, P220. Hubby ordered this. It is a bit "spicier" than the regular Pho although the reddish color came from the anatto seeds. The traditional Bun Bo Hue also has pork blood in it but since I haven't tasted it, I really can't tell. But hubby finished all of it so it must be good. :)


Here's my Pho Bo which cost P220 also. Daughter ordered a similar bowl so no need for photo. She was already slurping when I took this photo. Very filling although I think that the flavor of the herbs were a bit lacking. Can't wait to have another bowl again though. Maybe I should just bring my own coriander. ;)


The noodles come in small or large bowls. What we got are the small ones, but these bowls are definitely more filling than those of its competitors. I also saw some friend spring rolls on the menu which I plan to order next time. I'm sure its going to be delish!

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.
