Late Lunch at Sariwon

Its been a couple of years since we last ate at Sariwon in Promenade so we're all excited to dine there again. Hubby and daughter are craving for a Korean meal and we happen to go to Greenhills and remembered Sariwon.


Read more about our first dining experience at --- Sariwon.


Banchan comes free in every Korean restaurant. Sariwon serves unlimited Banchan and it includes: lettuce salad with sesame oil vinaigrette, mashed squash, broiled kang-kang, kimchi, sweet-salty peanuts with dilis, potato cubes, and spicy sayote strips. Banchans are basically side dishes and every Korean restaurants have their own different set of Banchans.


Dwaeji Galbi, P380. These are grilled pork loins. Very tender and flavorful. Serving size is good for sharing. You may just have to ask them to cut the meat in smaller pieces or bite size pieces upon serving or you can just request scissors so that you can cut it yourself.


Ojingeo-Bokkeum, P380.  Hubby prefers seafood over meat so I got this spicy squid for him. I love how the sesame oil balances the flavor of the chili paste. The squid is also perfectly cooked (meaning it is tender).


Seolleongtang, P320. I always order bone soup whenever we dine at a Korean restaurant. Rich soup with some bones and meat with glass noodles. You can add some chili paste to make it a bit spicy. Really, really good! Must try at Sariwon.


Mandu or Mandoo, P195. Ordered Mandoo as an afterthought because the promised unlimited Banchan took ages to arrive at our table (we just requested for additional mashed squash and peanuts and we have to remind them 3-4x). These are filled with kimchi and not meat, and 3 pieces are fried and 3 pieces are steamed. The fried ones tastes better than the steamed ones because the skin tends to harden when it is steamed and then you forgot to eat it at once. Note to self: don't order this again.

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.
