Makati's Best Kept Secret: Restoran Garuda

We've discovered a lot of interesting restaurants when the lockdown eased in 2021. Also, because we missed traveling, we just make it a point to food travel instead.

Garuda is an Indonesian restaurant near the Indonesian embassy in Makati so I guess that makes it super legit. I've been hearing about Garuda for the longest time and been planning to dine there for the longest time but was only able to visit it early this year. I know, I know. 

Luckily, I have an errand nearby and since daughter and I haven't had lunch yet, we decided to eat there instead of going to the mall. 

Happy to see personal favorites Satay & Nasi Goreng, Ayam Goreng, and Beef Rendang on the menu. 

NASI GORENG PACKET. This is a set meal that comes with iced tea. Looking at the photo, you'll think that the serving portion is small but this is quite filling because of the rice. 

AYAM GORENG GARUDA. This is love! Very flavorful also. And highly addictive! 

BEEF RENDANG PACKET. This is another set meal that comes with a drink. The rendang tastes good but this is not for the faint hearted since it is kinda spicy. 

Our first meal at Garuda was so memorable that we went back a few times more, as well as organize a surprise party for hubby's 50th birthday there. The party was on a Sunday so there's not much diners in the area.

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!

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!
