NEW RESTO ALERT: Chiringuito by Barcino

Our latest Boracay trip led to the newly opened Chiringuito by Barcino located at Station B. We were lucky to drop by on the first opening day, and even got to meet Chef Nicko

We just had dinner when we arrived at Chiringuito so we just ordered coffee, sangria, jamon and bruschetta. Place was a bit full since it was opening day and there was even a band playing reggae/ salsa music. 

Chiringuito has that relaxed but classy-vibe that is perfect for date-nights or bar-hopping with friends. Dining here is also possible although we really haven't tried the food. 

Bruschetta and Strawberry White Mocha. I was feeling a bit cold so having coffee is perfect. The coffee tastes good and dessert-ish. But the bruschetta! Really pairs nicely with the Jamon Serrano that Chef Nicko carved for us. 

Tropical Sangria is a light, fruity, and refreshing drink. This is served in a big sangria glass (about the size of 2 orders in other bars) so you're good with one drink. 

Or not! Haha, here's Sangria Tinto. It has a bolder taste compared to the tropical sangria. I suggest pairing this with the jamon. 

Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Chiringuito and my cousins even went back the following night for a second round. I was packing my maleta for an early morning trip back to Manila so boo hoo hoo.

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! 

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!
