Monggo Soup (Mung Bean Soup)

Monggo Soup (Mung Bean Soup)

This humble green bean soup is one of the unsung heroes of Philippine comfort food. Everyone loves it, but it’s not exactly the favorite Filipino dish. It isn’t right up there with the classic Filipino favorites — adobo, lechon, sisig & lumpia. I’ve never been […]

Oven Roasted Mackerel

Oven Roasted Mackerel

This fish dish reminds me of my trip at Dongdaemun Market’s fish street in Seoul a couple of years ago. I can’t recall how I ended up there. I do travel with a food list of the place in the native language, so it’s not […]

Radish Soup with Ground Pork

Radish Soup with Ground Pork

This recipe is inspired by my ingredient shopping miscalculation. For my latest batch of kimchi, I ended up with 2 extra radishes. I didn’t want it to go to waste, so I consulted one of my Korean cuisine cookbooks to cook with it and found […]

Eggplant and Onion Steamed Omelette

Eggplant and Onion Steamed Omelette

For me, the joys of grilling involve grilling vegetables. The leftover grilled vegetables are perfect for the next day’s meal (or meals). This recipe is inspired by the Korean steamed egg dish, Gyeranjjim 계란찜 – but instead of steaming it, just use your dutch oven. […]

Asparagus with caramelized onions

Asparagus with caramelized onions

It’s been a while – a long while since I’ve blogged. About four years, and change. It’s pretty funny how things come about, really. I’ve been planning this relaunch for about four months, but life happens. And here we are – I’ve got my own […]

Chicken Liver Adobo Pate

Chicken Liver Adobo Pate

I am a liver lover – much to the chagrin of a lot of my friends. Most of the time when there is liver on the menu, i squee like a little girl presented with a warm chocolate cupcake. Weird, I know. Liver is one […]

Bok Choy Two Ways

Bok Choy Two Ways

Aaahh… bok choy! Whenever I dine out with my friends at any Asian restaurant, there is a prerequisite of ordering vegetables. This is because we believe in ordering “the basic food groups” which means, a chicken dish, a beef dish, a pork dish, a seafood […]

Mackerel and Spinach Adobo

Mackerel and Spinach Adobo

Recently, I have made the conscious effort and decision to eat better. This is no small feat, as I barely have time to shop and cook (and blog it here) – and I refuse to eat anything that is labelled low-fat, low-calorie and whatever sugar […]

Garlic and Butter Broiled Salmon Heads

Garlic and Butter Broiled Salmon Heads

As I have mentioned before, I have a penchant for buying whole fish. Since buying a whole salmon is out of the question, I prefer cooking its head. Salmon steaks are expensive, and not as fatty and succulent as the meat from the collar and […]

Cleaning, Cooking and Eating Head-On Shrimps (Halabos Na Hipon)

Cleaning, Cooking and Eating Head-On Shrimps (Halabos Na Hipon)

Shrimps/Prawns cooked this way is the ultimate rich people food back in the Philippines. The bigger, the better. All I know is that it costs more than beef, chicken, fish and pork. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if house parties are judged by […]
