TKGEats at Kko-Kko Nara Singapore

I've been meaning to post this for the longest time but always failed to do so until now. Maybe it is also partly due to the fact that I am way past my cravings for Korean food. But still, Kko-Kko Nara is worth visiting if you happen to go to Singapore. 

Located in Tanjong Pagar, Kko-Kko Nara is housed in one of the district's famous shophouse row. Very picturesque. Of course, the food tastes great as well. 

We've tried a lot of dishes at Kko-Kko Nara but I'll just mention three favorites such as this lovely bowl of bibimbap

Bibimbap is a complete meal in itself, with protein, carbohydrates, and veggies. It is a common Korean meal that is very easy to whip up. Here at Kko-Kko Nara, one get to taste it in its purest form. 

Galbi Tang is another favorite. This comforting soup doesn't just warm the stomach, in fact it has ingredients that has healing properties. It can be eaten as is, or with rice. Yes, rice. 

Here now is the famous Budae Jjigae a.k.a. Korean Army Stew. This colorful stew is really a no-brainer especially if you know of its origins. Having a filling meal during the war is next to non-existent so whoever thought of incorporating several different ingredients to create this delicious stew is a genius. If you'll notice, there's noodles, luncheon meat, sausage, mushrooms, canned beans, etc. This is a popular choice for families or large groups. 

This is how Kko Kko Nara looks on the outside. You'd be surprise because it is very spacious inside and even has a second floor.

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!
