Food Crawl Diaries: The Manhattan Row, Araneta Center

The Kitchen Goddess (TKG) was recently invited to join a food crawl at The Manhattan Row in Araneta Center and here's what TKG discovered: The Manhattan Row is not just a residential place but it also has numerous restaurants and cafes.



Karaoke Pop Family KTV

Karaoke Pop opened last December 2016 and has served numerous guests from intimate parties to large groups. This is the perfect place to hang out, exercise your vocal chords, and savor the food.


Sisig. I love Karaoke Pop's sisig! Not oily and its meaty, chewy, crunchy, and of course, full of cholesterol. Best paired with beer according to Anthony Bourdain!


Chicharong Bulaklak. Another sinfully delicious food find at Karaoke Pop. And it tastes good, not "malansa." Just ask for dipping vinegar with chilis and you're all set.


Cab Cafe

If you love cakes, and cookies, and other wonderful pastries, you need to visit Cab Cafe in Manhattan Parkview. They also serve coffee and cold drinks.


Just look at the selection of cakes! And the best part, everything tastes good (I love sweets) and the price is friendly on the pocket, too. My faves are the White Chocolate Cheesecake and the Blueberry Cheesecake.


Bengal Brew and Wolf & Bear Dog Cafe

Bengal Brew is a cat cafe, while the other one is a dog cafe. You get to cuddle and have selfies with cats and dogs inside the cafe and get to enjoy a drink, too. You can opt to have your drink brought inside the cat cafe or sip your drink with the cute dogs.


There's more than 30 cats in Bengal Brew and most of them are friendly especially if you have a treat. ;)


Here's a big fluffy dog at the Wolf & Bear Cafe. Most of the big dogs here loves to be hugged, rubbed, and fed. ;)


Books and Borders Cafe

It is not just your usual cafe where you hang out with friends to eat and drink. It is being literal about the books and much, much more.


Board games. While waiting for your food or while eating, you and your family or friends can play boardgames such as monopoly or scrabble. A fun and educational way to bond without gadgets.


Books and Borders serves pasta, sandwiches, rice meals, and dessert! We all love the calamansi pie.



Will do a full review of each establishment included in The Manhattan Row Food Crawl. Stay tuned.

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!
