Not another ramen place! 

There are more than enough great ramen place all over Metro Manila (and even the whole archipelago) but there's nothing like a specialty place like Marudori. Think chicken, chicken, and chicken. Yum!

Marudori is one of the restaurants that opened when almost the whole world was still in partial lockdown due to the pandemic. But it is easy to spot a good resto when you see it full of diners and a waiting line. 

Shio Paitan. A clean tasting broth with perfect al dente noodles. This is our default ramen order when it's hard to choose from the menu. 

Then there's my favorite Tantanmen. Super rich and spicy broth with bits of seasoned ground chicken, and just the right amount of vegetable. Have a glass of water within reach if you're not that fond of spicy food. But this is a must-try, okay? 

Yuzu is a refreshing cold ramen. I love how the noodles are separately served with the broth. Broth has a lighter texture as compared with the other ramen on the menu. 

Hiyashi Chuka Ramen is another favorite. This ramen is served cold but with no broth. The surprise is in the noodles which is made from spinach. Yum! 

Tsukune is like a well-seasone chicken patty on a stick. This is grilled so that's added umami, and served with sauce and raw egg. You dip the chicken on the egg sauce or you can pour it on the chicken itself. Up to you. 

I'm saving the best for last. Gyoza! This is not your usual gyoza though. This is more like xiao long bao. The first time we ate at Marudori, the gyoza reminds me greatly of pan-fried buns from Cheung King Kee in Hong Kong. My daughter is so in-love with Marudori's gyoza and she orders this always whenever we dine-in. 

There's still several items on the menu that we haven't tried yet so expect an update. Btw, Marudori is sister to Mendokoro and Yushoken. 

PS. Marudori is usually crowded during lunchtime so best to dine between 2-5pm. I'm not sure about the dinner crowd though because we always go here after lunch. Also, you need to show your Vaccination ID.

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!


Most of us (Filipinos) have discovered the passion to make a nice cup of coffee especially during the lockdown last year. Remember the Dalgona craze at the onset of the pandemic? From then on, coffee has become a part of our pandemic lifestyle, and this include having a coffee corner at home. 

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
