Respond

This recipe is very easy  to make. Chef Rikks Valles of Mida Food Distributors Inc. suggests using Pinot Noir and the best port wine you can find for the sauce. Just like the Cream Dory Tandoori with Raisin Couscous and Crab Cakes with Aioli Dill Sauce, this recipe for Pan-Grilled Chilean Sea bass with Port Wine Reduction was prepared for the “101 Ways with Seafood” demo over at The Maya Kitchen.

Chilean Sea bass is available at the frozen section of the supermarket and directly from Mida Food Distributors,Inc. For orders and to learn more about their products, you can check out the catalog on their website.

Here’s the recipe. Enjoy!

Midnight Mercato Now Open On Wednesday Nights

Respond

Hi all! I know I’ve been absent from this blog for quite some time and posting has been very sporadic. It’s a mixture of the lazies, crappy internet, the lack of material, the lazies– you get my drift. I’m really sorry about that, but now I’m back with an update! XD

Midnight_Mercato_Launch_14

I got news that Midnight Mercato is now open Wednesday nights, and never having been, we decided to check it out. There’s a big selection of grilled items from pork barbecue, isaw and other innards; as well as grilled fish and chicken. There were also stalls that sold burgers and fries, deep dish pizzas and something with lots of crispy bacon. Other stall had Ilocos empanada, chicharon, kebabs and fried chicken. Siomai, maki and takoyaki are also available. I also remember seeing paella, steaks and pasta being sold at other booths.

For those looking for dessert, there were, I believe 3 stalls that sold cakes and other baked products. There’s also a stall that sold gelato and mochi. There was actually a lot of food there but I can’t remember everything I’ve seen. [Read more →]

Robot Bar & Lounge

Respond

One afternoon found myself and some friends over at Robot Bar & Lounge. Robot, short for Robotoyaki, is a Japanese restaurant and bar that offers a modern twist on Japanase cuisine. We chowed on some of their menu items like the Spicy Tuna Roll, which was very creamy and the heat is tolerable, which I like very much. My tolerance for spicy food isn’t really high.

Bistro Ravioli Opens New Branches

Respond

One of my favorite restaurants, Bistro Ravioli, opened two branches in the last twelve months. One is in Robinson’s Midtown Wing of Robinson’s Place in Ermita, and more recently, at Glorietta Mall in Makati City.

Both branches offer the same delicious dishes that their Mall of Asia branch does, such as their fresh pasta dishes and pizzas baked in a brick oven. And let’s not forget dessert!

If you’ve been wanting to try their offerings for some time now, but still haven’t, it’s certainly more easier to do so with two new branches in the metro. Here’s hoping that they’ll open another branch somewhere in the north.

The Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut

Krispy Kreme Introduces The Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut
I finally tried it last night after watching The Green Lantern movie, and i I loved it. I loved it so much I had three in one sitting!

The Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut is Krispy Kreme’s version of the comic book classic made of rich chocolate dough, smothered with Hershey’s milk chocolate icing, doused with confectioner’s sugar and topped with a dollop of green jelly. Sounds good right?

If you haven’t tried it yet, grab one or even a dozen, and get in on The Green Lantern craze. This limited edition doughnut is available only from June 3 to July 10.
