KOI The: Not Another Milk Tea!

There's been a milk tea craze going on and of course, we do have our favorites such as this, and this, and that. And because of Instagram, our world of milk tea suddenly expanded and we wanted to have a taste of those popular milk tea shops in Taiwan that creates longish lines and fandom.

It was then that I suddenly found myself bound for Singapore sans my daughter (foodie-mate), but she gave me these list of food that I must try in SG and one them is KOI The, a milk tea shop. 



I was all set to head off to Bugis Mall because there's a KOI branch there but luckily found out that there's one at Changi City Point Mall which was just across Singapore Expo where my 4-day seminar is. Serendipity lah! 


Anyways, it was kinda hard to choose so I just asked for the bestseller lah. That was the Golden Bubble Milk Tea and it tasted good. They used burnt sugar so it has that added "arnibal" flavor to it. You know, "brown" sugar syrup like the ones being used in "taho?" 



I only got the medium-sized drink which cost sgd $3.50. Expensive but delicious lah!

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.
