Sinigang sa pinya

I have posted about sinigang sa pakwan (Philippine watermelon sour soup) and sinigang sa bayabas (guava-based soup). It gets more exotic. Maggi released green mango and pineapple variants, apart from the ubiquitous tamarind-based soup mixes. 54 more words


Hungry for Appetti

Hello, again, you lovely people!

Time has certainly passed by quickly, and look at where we are; only 4.5 months of the year left! And what have I been up to since the last post? 326 more words


Broccoli pesto

I’ve shared my love for pesto with you a few times on this blog, but would you believe I’d never really thought beyond the classic recipe with basil and pine nuts? 378 more words


Leftovers-in-the-fridge fritata

Woke up this morning with no idea what I was going to have for breakfast. I haven’t gone grocery shopping in a while and my refrigerator and pantry are both looking rather bare. 285 more words


The Todd English Food Hall at The Plaza

Many restaurants are doing this thing called “small plates” these days, and I’m loving it. They’re not necessarily appetizers. They’re more like miniature entrees. And when you can’t decide what you want to eat because there are too many yummy-sounding items on the menu, small plates are definitely the way to go. 320 more words


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.
