Discovering Big Bowl Noodles

A few days prior to 2017 Chinese New Year, I joined some blogger friends on a walking and eating tour around Manila Chinatown and one of the restaurants that we discovered was Big Bowl Noodles. The place was along Yuchengco Street coming from Ongpin and just beside the Kwan Yin Temple.


Big Bowl Noodles is housed in an old building so don't expect some post interiors. It is just your typical canteen set-up.


Of course, as the name suggests, noodles are highlighted on the menu. I ordered the Beef Brisket Noodles. I really can't remember the price but it costs around P120 and it was served in a big bowl, literally. Good for 2-3 pax if you are ordering other dishes. Tastes okay, the noodles are freshly made and the broth flavorful. The meat itself is chewy and needs more boiling time imho. But for the price, I am definitely not complaining.


Stir-fried Seafood Noodles. Price is around P120 also. Flavorful. This was wiped-out in seconds. Or maybe we were all hungry? ;)


Siomai. Nothing fancy but tummy filling.


Here's what the resto looks inside. See that pink pipe on the right? That's where the waiting staff places the order (there's a container below that pipe) and then someone from the kitchen above pulls it up. Haha cool!

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

Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

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.
