NEW RESTO ALERT: Elephant Grounds

We've been frequenting The Podium after the lockdown has eased its restrictions last year and Elephant Grounds has been one of our favorite restaurant discovery. 

We were looking for a nice place to have coffee and dessert so we ended up at Elephant Grounds. I think we also wanted to dine here but the tables were full so we went to another restaurant. 

Elephant Grounds is a specialty coffeeshop that was founded in Hong Kong. Aside from the usual espresso, there are several coffee choices here. 

We had French Vanilla and Salted Caramel lattes on our first visit and both are so memorable that we scheduled another round. 

But it was during our second visit when we discovered affogato and waffle. OMG moment for us. And we're hooked- line and sinker! 

The affogato was so creamy and rich. Perfect blend of gelato and espresso. 

And the waffle was the perfect coffee companion. Portion is good for sharing BUT it was so delish, you'll regret if you share! hahaha

Elephant Grounds also serve food that's perfect for lunch or dinner.

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.
