Chicken Sotanghon–Wow, sabaw!

“Mainit…masarap higupin.” By itself as a filling soup… as a viand it perfectly complements rice and fried fish. Nourishing…comforting…healthy. That is what this dish means to me. It’s also makes for great merienda fare, served with puto (steamed rice cake). A contrast of mildly,savoury soup with…

Adobong Baboy sa Asin

  Thank you for reading and I’m glad that I got you interested. I actually don’t know how to call this dish as I was afraid that the word “adobo” had become hackneyed and trite specially among Filipinos and that there seem to be no new adobo recipe that could catch anyone…

Chicken Wings Afritada

Tomato-based dishes are one of the few good things that we inherited from those bored Spaniards who colonized the Philippines for centuries; the same conquistadors that had nothing else to do but to bug little islands in Asia in search of spices (of course).  Anyway, there…

Home-made Pandesal

  What can be a better way to start the day than a cup of hot cocoa-milk drink and pandesal :-)   Yes, our very own home-made pandesal. Pandesal literally means “bread of salt” but since Filipinos are naturally sweet tooth, pandesal had become sweeter and sweeter through the years. …

Green Beans and Chicken with Black Bean Sauce

  Black bean garlic paste has this salty-spicy-sweet quality that enhances the flavor of a lot of Asian dishes. Basically, this paste or sauce is made from fermented beans AKA Douchi, soy sauce, and garlic. It is one of my favorite ingredients especially for flavoring the…

Turon
