Boy Kanin's Unli-Kanin is Life

Let's have a short quiz about a Pinoy's eating habit:

1. Dipping sauce such as "toyo," "suka," or "patis" is almost always within reach in every Pinoys' home. True or False
2. Beef tapa is always paired "kamatis" and "bagoong." True or False
3. Green mango with salted egg and tomatoes goes well with "inihaw na baboy." True or False
4. "Suman sa lihiya" is a seasonal "kakanin" during Christmas. True or False
5. A Pinoy's meal is not complete if it doesn't have rice or "kanin." True or False


So how was your score on the short quiz?

Here's another one, a fill-in-the-blank: Life Without "Kanin" is ...

Anyways, since the topic in this article is about "kanin" or rice, let's me introduce you to Boy Kanin, a fastfood that highlights Pinoy pride ... este "kanin."

Boy Kanin is a homegrown fast food restaurant that began its humble beginnings in Bulacan. From there, it has slowly expanded to other provinces and even here in Metro Manila. To date, there are about 80 branches nationwide with several stores to open as the fast food chain also happen to mark its 6th year. Of course, the anniversary calls for a celebration so Boy Kanin is highlighting its Unli-Kanin promo.


The Unli-Kanin promo is available for Boy Sisig, Sizzling Liempo, and Chicken Pinoy Barbeque.

Boy Sisig is heaven on a plate. This is really perfect with the unli-kanin promo since each spoonful is memorable. What's nice about this sisig is that there's no need to add soy sauce or hot sauce since it is already perfect as it is. But then, we Pinoys really do love having a perfect pairing condiment with our meals.


This Sizzling Liempo tasted divine. It is both sweet and salty and is rich with umami that you really have to ask for more kanin.


Here's the piece-de-resistance: Chicken Pinoy Barbeque. Juicy and perfectly barbequed chicken served with hot rice. Just looking at that hefty portion will make you crave for more kanin. Goodbye diet! ;)


Expect more "busog" promos from Boy Kanin as it celebrate its 6th year. Burp!

P.S. They have yummy "suman sa lihiya" which is perfect with a cup of hot "Barako" coffee or a glass of iced-cold "salabat."

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.
