Hello Panda Express!

Panda Express recently opened its doors to the Filipinos as a response to the growing number of Pinoys who clamor to taste food from popular restaurants abroad. It serves Chinese food, American-style and hails from Glendale, California. Panda Express opened its first branch in SM Megamall.



Filipinos are really excited about having first dibs at Panda Express and even braved the longish line. But every one had their turn and was served piping-hot meals.


Every one also got stamped with this cutey panda!


This was customer number 17's order--- Broccoli Beef, Orange Chicken and Beijing Beef with Fried Rice, and Kung Pao Chicken. Diners are also given Fortune Cookies!


These diners are Panda Express' First Family. According to them, they got lucky when the mall opened and it was serendipity that they found themselves at the restaurant and first in line. According to the management, they will receive 88 days for free dining treat from Panda Express. Yey!


Panda Express is known for its Orange Chicken. Yum!


Can't wait to dine at Panda Express. I guess will wait for the crowd to settle down a bit. I'm excited to try Black Pepper Chicken and Beijing Beef.

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.
