The meal that saved Chinese food

It exists! A good high quality Chinese meal on the average price.  IN METRO MANILA! It's been years since my last visit. I might not like the interiors but I love the food and the price. At 6pm, we had all the wait's attention all to ourselves. Salivate......

Pampanga Express

Just because... An all-veggie affair making use of the Bicolano's gata cooking technique and the Pampango palate (meaning it's sweeter than spicier!). Don't scream! I just like how it sounds. Yes, yes, I know there are no trains to Pampanga and it's not as...

Cravings, Sudden Cravings

Without a plan, I craved Lomi! Definitely not good because I haven't gone to the grocery store in a week. So... searching our fridge, pantry, down every nook and cranny, I found these. I called my mother-in-law, my Chinese cooking mentor, and asked her to r...

El Cangrejo, a story of crabs and steaks

I cannot imagine the horrors of overeating! But overeat I did! Good thing it was a lunch affair... Here's the scoop on my satisfying indulgence. El Cangrejo, tucked away inside a restaurant compound along Sgt. Esguerra in Quezon City, might look simple and un...

Can Scrambled Eggs Be Frozen?

Ordinarily it isn't a good idea to freeze cooked egg whites because they taste rubbery when they are thawed. But when they are all mixed up with the yolks, they keep their good taste and texture. So yes, you can freeze scrambled eggs and have a handy breakfast...
