Not So Instant Pancit Canton

Here's an old family recipe for Pancit Canton that really lets you get in there and work your inner domestic diva. You know, for when you're feeling too fancy for instant pancit canton and a bilao of pancit canton ordered from your favorite panciteria just does not seem to cut it.

Mabuhay Germany 2015: See you there!

(Click to enlarge)

“We know that Filipinos love to eat, and this certain passion for food is a trait shared by Germans as well. In Mabuhay Germany 2015, we are introducing German cuisine to more Filipinos, allowing them to experience the country’s culture one bite at a time. Since there will be no entrance fee, everyone can come freely and have a slice of German food and culture for the whole weekend,”

A few days ago, my friend booked us a table at The Girl + The Bull in BF Paranaque. She tells me she's heard some pretty good reviews about the restaurant and I too have read about it online so I was pretty stoked about finally getting to try the food there.

Cheat Day Worthy Breakfast

I almost forgot about this. Last Independence Day roadtrip, before we ever got to Marcia Adams' Restaurant, our first stop was Breakfast at Antonio's, where we had, you guessed it-- breakfast. I had a lot of memorable meals here and my heart sank when it closed a while back. Fortunately, it has since reopened its doors and with it a refreshed look and a new menu.

German Food Galore: A Mabuhay Germany Preview

Fraulein's Sausages
I attended a food tasting yesterday for the Mabuhay Germany event this coming February. The food tasting event was held at the Doehle Haus building in Makati. Before anything else, let me just say that that building was one of the reasons why I was so excited about the invitation. Everytime I pass by Buendia, I could not help but marvel at this handsome deep red building. I find it so extraordinary and imposing compared to most buildings I see in the Metro. So when I got the opportunity to see it from the inside, I snatched it.

A Fish Too Pretty to Eat

One of the dishes that make frequent appearances on our dining table is paksiw na bisugo. When I was a little girl I remember thinking what a waste to cook such a pretty fish, this bisugo. Baby pink and a bright yellow streak running along its underbelly, how can that be not pretty? Why are we not keeping it in an aquarium instead? For some reason, I found it more acceptable to eat the gray-colored ones. Gray fish is for eating. Pink fish, no.

Rosalie's Suman Pinipig with Buko

Rosalie's Suman Pinipig with Buko is the bane of my recent existence. See after the holiday food binge, I try my darnedest to go on a diet like any normal human being. My idea of diet though only goes so far as cutting down on rice or not having any if I can avoid it.

Chopseuy with patola anyone?

We have a trellis in the backyard where a healthy vine of patola (luffa) grows. It's a seasonal plant I think, because one day it will fruit like crazy and before you know it, the vine withers and dies.
