Knorr’s Sarap ng #LutongNanay Campaign

“What is your favourite mom-cooked meal?” This question was asked to me by a TV reporter a few minutes after I arrived at the Blue Leaf Pavillion for Knorr’s Sarap ng #LutongNanay campaign. As I gave my answer, ginisang munggo (sautéed mung beans), I realized that I missed my mother’s cooking. Suddenly, I craved for that thick mung bean soup with malunggay and ground pork! How I wished I could run fast to my family home and charm my mom in cooking me one. I will turn the question to you. What’s one meal that your mom cooks best for Read More …

Ramen: Irreplaceable Japanese dish

I think I have written in my previous posts my wonderful experience in the land of the rising sun. The country might be popular for Mario, Doraemon, Rilakkuma, Harajuku girls, The Great Wave of Kanagawa, Yui, Sumo,but for me it is the place for sushi, sashimi, tempura, and of course RAMEN.

Eating your heart out: Bulgogi Brothers’ Unyang-style Bulgogi

Last Tuesday, I went to Mall of Asia to meet a friend. He wanted to eat Korean food, but I know some only along Macapagal Boulevard and not inside the mall. Still, we tried to scan the establishment until we came across Bulgogi Brothers. As I know, Bulgogi Brothers is a Korean franchise. To date, there are only three branches in the country: Greenebelt 5 in Makati, Alabang Town Center, and Mall of Asia. There’s one to be opened in Subic, but I’m not sure when. I was a bit curious with this international food chain so I agreed to Read More …

Kimchi weekend

Thunderstorm in the country, torrential rains, flood waters reaching up to knee in some areas, but Paul wanted to play chef again. Here’s a preamble of chef series posts that I’ll be making: Kimchi jjigae for dinner. What’s more perfect than this stewing hot Korean dish in a rainy day?
