Nanyang: A Singaporean Kopi Tiam at SM Aura

Having stayed in Singapore for a week last August made me crave for its famous Chicken Rice and Laksa. I remember having the most memorable laksa-experience at Nanyang Old Coffee when I went to Chinatown in SG, and the chicken rice stall near my hotel in Geylang. And lucky me because I got invited by SM Super Malls to join a food crawl in SM Megamall and SM Aura Premier, and it includes a Singaporean themed restaurant called- Nanyang. You can read about the food crawl here --- AweSMFeast Food Crawl.


Just to give you an idea, the food crawl began in SM Megamall and we already five restaurants there and got generously fed in the process. But I got excited when I learned that we're visiting a Singaporean restaurant. Laksa!!! And it was good although differently flavored as the laksa I had in SG. I believe that there are more than several variations of laksa and I'm not really an authority on Singaporean fare but the laksa I had from Nanyang in SM Aura is delicious and has the right flavors. 


Milk tea is quite popular in SG also and I'm giving the ones from Nanyang two thumbs up! No kidding. It's the real deal. I was so smitten by the flavor that I decided to conserve my drink and took it with me to the succeeding restos listed on the food crawl. 


I wasn't really able to taste the chicken rice because I was concentrating on the laksa and the milk tea, but noting how good the laksa is, I am eager to visit Nanyang again and taste the other dishes as well. They serve Traditional Kaya Toast with soft-boiled eggs. Yum! I first had my authentic Kaya Toast at Old Town White Coffee and it was very memorable. 


Nanyang is a coffee house or "kopi tiam" in Malay. It has a clean-looking black-and-white interiors that looks inviting and relaxing at the same time. Nice place to eat with family or friends.

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! 

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!
