Gastronomical Indulgence in Phuket

Phuket is not only about beaches, beautiful sceneries and wild outdoor adventures.  It is also a  gastronomical haven for food enthusiasts.  That’s why I especially my husband Frederick are captivated by this place (We shall return – that’s my husband’s promise).

Salmon Sashimi Marinated in Lime

Frederick loves salmon sashimi and Kilawin.  And since salmon is easy to find, abundant and cheap in Singapore as compared in Manila, and since he was bitin (not satisfied) with the salmon sushi that we had from Sakae sushi, he decided to prepare salmon sashimi, only that he gave it a twist. Kilawin refers to the Filipino …

My First Home Made Spanish Style Bangus (Milkfish)

I’ve been “practicing” and learning to be a good cook (if not great 🙂 ) for Frederick and our kids of course. As the saying goes – “the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” (wink wink***) And — not to mention that I am a choosy and “hard-to-please” eater so I’d rather cook …

Pork Sisig

Sisig, one of my favorite Filipino dishes.  Though it maybe difficult and laborious and time consuming to cook it up, it will never be an excuse for me not to make one of this mouth-watering, fatty-goodness, high in cholesterol pork dish called sisig.  Sisig is one of the most loved and preferred pulutan by the Pinoy drunks (manginginom in Tagalog and mammartek in …

Kare Kareng Pata

Kare kare is an original Filipino recipe that is made from peanut sauce, a variety of vegetables and meat variants.  Usually, kare kare is cooked with oxtail, beef, or tripe. But since my stomach hates beef as it has troubles digesting it, I always cook using pork, pork legs and trotters to be specific.  I …
