Make easy to cook dishes at home with Clara Ole!


Tuna Mallorca using Filipino Style Pasta Sauce

I’ve used Clara Ole products ever since I can remember. For example, there’s a nice hack of my favorite CPK Kung Pao Spaghetti you can make using Clara Ole’s kung pao pasta sauce. Just open a packet, mix in a few ingredients like chili peppers and shrimp or chicken, and you have a gourmet dish in an instant. Clara Ole…

Fish recipe for Lent : sinanglay


Sinanglay fish recipe from Bicol

Sinanglay is a dish normally made of tilapia and pechay (leafy greens). Its origin is the Philippines’ Bicol region which is known for the spiciness of their food and using a lot of coconut milk in their dishes. Anyway, I first saw a photo of sinanglay in Appetite magazine and proceeded to recreate it in my kitchen. I couldn’t find…

Best of Pinoy casual dining at Kuya J Restaurant


Fresh lumpia at Kuya J

Just because we now have all sorts of foreign food chains around doesn’t mean we get to ignore our culinary roots. I feel this way sometimes: when I get ‘tongue fatigue’ from slurping on so many bowls of ramen, munching on macarons and getting a headache from eating foie gras, I yearn for good old Filipino home cooking. My particular…

Fish & seafood for Lent at l’entrecote BGC


Grilled Marinated Norwegian Salmon

My female buddies and I have found the perfect place to chill in Burgos Circle: it’s at the al fresco area of L’Entrecote Corner Bistro. Watching people pass by is my cheap thrill: I get to notice everyone’s sense of fashion, try to guess what they do for a living, what they’re thinking. And since this is Bonifacio Global City,…

Eating light this Lenten season at Sentro 1771


Sentro 1771 is one restaurant in the metro I’d highly recommend for those in search of good Filipino food. If I had relatives returning from abroad, they’d surely find comfort in Sentro’s most famous dish, the corned beef sinigang..or the kare-kare, pochero, adobo, boneless crispy pata and the all-day breakfast treats I wrote about before. Sentro 1771’s menu is quite…

Coco Hut Fried Chicken & Fish by Army Navy


When we were invited recently by Army Navy to sample new items in their menu, Pearl – the bubbly head for marketing – told us about their new restaurant called Coco Hut. This is supposed to be the healthier chain of the Army Navy group since there’s a predominance of fish & vegetables on the menu. My interest was so…
