Breakfast at Khmer Taste

Our hotel in Siem Reap is just a few minutes walk to Pub Street and the Old Market so you can just imagine the restaurants, food carts, food vendors that we pass by every day. And eating seem to be a daunting task especially with all the food choices- from traditional Khmer cuisine, burgers, pizza, grilled food, and exotic ones such as grilled tarantulas, snakes, etc.

But one restaurant that captured our hearts (or tummy) is Khmer Taste because we ate there twice. We didn't really plan to eat there but since we were scouting for a reasonably priced laundry service (that's another story), we end up eating at Khmer Taste which was like 3 stores away. 



Food was so good, that we decided to eat breakfast there the following morning (Stay tuned for our Khmer Taste dinner). 

I'm not really a breakfast person so I just ordered sunny side-up + baguette + sweet Cambodia  coffee which costs me $1.75. My friebd had the scrambled eggs plus coffee which is basically the same amount. 



The bread was freshly made and warmed to perfection, crusty and soft at the same time. Perfect with butter. The coffee also tasted great and my only complaint was that the cup was small so you need to order another one if its not enough for you. 



Another hightlight at Khmer Taste aside from the food is its fish spa which costs only $1 for unlimited time. This fish spa is way, way cheaper than the ones near Pub Street and has a time limit. 



To sum it up, Khmer Taste is a great restaurant, a reasonably priced one that serves good food.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

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.

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!
