NEW RESTO ALERT: Saigonsan in Uptown Mall

Konnichiwa Saigosan!

A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast. Inspired by animes, mangas, and JPop culture, Saigosan even has a train wherein you can hop from Kyoto to Osaka without a JR Pass! 

My top picks from the menu are:

Tori Katsu Sando. Meaty chunks of savory chicken sandwich with special sauce, with fries and onions sides. Very filling, good for sharing. 

Buta Kakuni Ramen. Comforting broth with ramen noodles, braised pork belly, and hanjuku tamago. Itadakimasu! 

Grilled Yakiniku Don with Egg. A popular choice. Grilled beef has that particular umami that everyone can't seem to resist. I suggest pairing this with Saigosan's specially crafted Shandys or Highballs. 

Spicy Shake. Another popular choice because it's a conversation piece, best paired with Saigosan's Shandy or Highball drinks. 

Miso Butter Lobster. This is the 'piece de resistance!' Succulent lobster, rich in umami that's enhanced by creamy miso butter sauce. Perfect of celebrations or even if you're just craving for that perfect meal. 

Drinks. There's Saigosan House Blend, Hibiscus, Yuzu, and a whole lot more.

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!
