Pre-Chinese New Year Dinner at Wai Ying

My balikbayan sister-in-law was craving for some dimsums and Chinese food and since she's been staying with us, we decided to join the festivities at Manila's Chinatown the night before Chinese New Year. After buying some trinkets and herbal oils, we ended up at Wai Ying.

Started our meal with these meaty and juicy siomais. Yum!

We haven't visited Wai Ying for a long time so we're all excited to order. 


Daughter can't resist the hakaws. These are plump shrimps with thinly slices of ginger, wrapped in pouches made from rice powder and then steamed. You can dip it in black vinegar, chili sauce, or eat it as it is.


Weather was still chilly that time so I got myself a bowl of Beef Brisket Noodles. Serving is kinda huge but hubby helped me finish it off.


Hubby's favorite at Wai Ying is the White Chicken with Minced Chive, Garlic and Oil.


Daughter ordered Fish Fillet with Creamed Corn Sauce. She says tastes okay lang.


My sister-in-law got the Duck Asado. She said it is a filling meal although not that great. But she's happy with the hakaw and siomai. :)


Although Wai Ying serves free house tea, it is always a treat to order Iced Hong Kong Milk Tea.

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!

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!
