Camaru (Mole Crickets)

Lunch the other day was a sizzling plate of dead insects.

Crunchy on the outside. Creamy on the inside. Seasoned just right with salt, pepper, calamansi, a hint of butter.



Veggie Soup

I like vegetable soups these days, but these kinds of soup are always better with cream and some cheese. So they’re not exactly healthy :) This one is a mix of potatoes, carrots, broccoli, asparagus, and some chicken bits. Very hearty.  Quite delicious.


Pesto Pasta

A friend shared with me some home-made pesto. I bought some seafood from the neighborhood grocery, cooked up some pasta, added some cream, and topped it with parmesan cheese (the fake one in a tub). 37 more words


Paratha and Hummus

I got really happy yesterday when I stumbled into ready-to-cook parathas in the supermarket. There had been a steady increase in the population of South Asian workers in the area where I live (due most probably to the business process outsourcing industry) so these were available in the supermarket. 85 more words


Yakiniku Sakura

It was a drizzly Thursday afternoon when I decided to give Yakiniku Sakura a visit after dropping-off some watercolor typography somewhere in Makati. It was past 5 in the afternoon when I got to the establishment. 208 more words


Seafood pasta (shrimp, scallops, mussels, smoked fish, salmon, crab roe)

Recently, you posted a pasta scampi dish that looked really good. I remember I have saved a post for a pasta in olive oil with mussels. 142 more words


High Street Cafe

Lunch today was at Shangri La’s High Street Cafe in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City (yup, that is correct, a city within a city within a metropolitan city… which is Metro Manila).   76 more words
