RECIPE: TKG'S Citrus Mackerel

During the Holy Week season in the Philippines, the tradition of refraining from eating meat is observed. And that is why fish and other seafood dishes are quite popular during Holy Week. Sharing my easy-to-prepare Mackerel recipe.


Ingredients:

Uni-Pak Mackerel, 425g can
1 clove garlic, peeled
10 pcs Black Olives, sliced
6-8 slice of Orange Peels ** you can just use calamansi or lemon juice instead of orange peel
Chili flakes (I used Habanero salt)
salt to taste
Olive Oil


Directions:

Heat pan (preferably non-stick) and add oil. Add orange peels and garlic, remove from pan until it is almost brown and fragrant. Sear all side of the Mackerel, add the black olives and sprinkle with the habanero salt (chili flakes + salt). Add the garlic and orange peels before serving. Good for 2 pax.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
