Baked Bangus ala Pobre

Bangus ala Pobre is a fish dish where the fish is usually fried and simmered in a salty-sour sauce.  I have no idea why this fish dish is termed ala pobre since pobre means poor when translated literally in English. The original plan is to fry…

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. …
