Salad Confession

Common connotation when you eat salad in a restaurant is you are in a diet. Well yes! That’s the truth! And most of the times, sa hindi naman sinasadyang pagkakataon, nakaka offend when the order taker repeats your order in a tone that as if di nya narinig. Minsan di din sila conscious about it pero subconsciously may kung hatid din na di maganda sa taong nag didiet naman talaga!

Well, sa situation na ito, wag mo pairalin ang pride or hiya mo. Tandaan! the more ka mahiya or the more na di mo tanggap na ang totoo ay nag didiet ka naman talaga.

Trying China Pot

Been wanting to try China Pot Binondo Style Restaurant in Delta Quezon City everytime I pass by Delta. I always have that cravings for dugyot looking long standing restaurants because I believe that they won’t last in business if they don’t serve good food.

So we tried it! It’s a carinderia type of restaurant that serves ready to eat meals and short order pansit. I must say their pansit is superb! Very umami and flavorful. But since we tried it during lunch, we ordered some ulam.

It wasn’t bad at all but the ambiance is not really for those that is looking for a nice place to eat. Overall the food is ok πŸ‘Œ but because the place is not good / dugyot, one may not really enjoy it.

Their Pansit is very nice. So for those who are looking for take out bilao pansit, this is a must try! (Sorry I don’t have a photo of their pansit!)

Big Pandesal and Everlasting

Kapag napadaan ka na ng Katipunan sa bandang White Plains, maaring nakita mo na ang restaurant na pabaliktad ang exterior design. Wala silang malakihang sinage pero kilala sila at iyan ang Pan De Amerikana.

Well for this story, I just wanna share ang Big Pan de Sal at Everlasting taste experience namin. We bought it sa Marikina branch BTW.

Big Pandesal is literally big in size. It’s about  6-7 inches long and 2-4 inches high. Looks like a loaf but it isn’t. Being pandesal, the outside texture has the crumb and inside is a bit hollow. The tastes gives you that wheat and butter mixed flavor and overall it’s still like your neighbourhood tinapay.

Everlasting, on the other hand is the flavor perfect partner for that 100year old Pandesal recipe bread. In a nutshell, its like embotido but instead of steaming it / shaping it in a foil and roll, they use leche flan mold. Theirs tho, is prepared in a way that the texture can be spread on the bread.

Corn Beef and Celery | What’s Cooking | MarkMyName

Sometimes, mahirap talaga mag isip ng kakainin. Nakakatamad din pumunta ng palengke to buy fresh meat. So, madalas ang mga imbak na delata ang mapipili mo na lamang. 

Corn beef. To some people, they don’t really recommend canned goods for any diet. Technically, yes! It is better to eat freshly prepared meals out of fresh and real ingredients. Pero push comes to shove, the delata is my last resort. Choose pa rin syempre ang delata na low carb, gaya ng corn beef. Piliin na din ang mababa ang sugar.

Igisa ito at lagyan ng madaminb celery! It’s anti-inflammatory, rich in antioxidants and low carb. Dati ayaw ko ng Celery, pero nung nalaman ko ang powerful health benefits nito. Unti unti ko din ito na love!

Salted Egg Chicken and French Beans

Favorite ko po kasi mag experiment sa kitchen. Madalas kung ano lang mapulot ko sa pantry iyon ang nilalagay ko sa whatever na tinitimpla.

In short, I don’t have standard recipe for this one but instead I have a more likely general guidelines.

For starters, i-blanche ang french bean at i set aside. 

I chose chicken thigh fillet because that is my favorite part. It has that kind of bite and moist that I always love sa chicken.  Marinade it with Fish sauce and pepper per your discretion. This particular experiment, I added 2 table spoon of smoked paprika, for additional flavor. Though, generally this recipe needs to have a breading, I took it out to make it Keto compliant.

Fry the pre marinated chicken and make sure it’s well cooked. 

In a saucer mash the salted egg. Isama na ang white para sa added texture. In restaurants, they don’t usually add the white part of the salted egg. I also added La EspaΓ±ola Extra Virgin Olive oil in Lemon to balance the lansa in the salted egg.

Put the pan in high heat. SautΓ© some garlic and add the mashed saleted egg. Mapapansin na mag bubbles yan ng konti. That’s the sign! Ready na ibalik ang mga nakaraan! Ilagay muli ang french bean at prinitong manok. Ihalo at handa na!

Kainan na!

Fried Pork Chop with Kimchi and Lettuce | What’s Cooking | MarkMyName

Fried Pork Chop with Kimchi and Lettuce 

At home samgyupsal ang peg neto. Walang masyadong pa marinade ang Pork dahil minsan at madalas di naman natin alam kung ano ang ingredients ng mga ready mixed na marinades. Bawal din sa Keto ang masyadong toyo. So, for this one, ang fried pork chop ay mayroon lamang salt at pepper. Which is ganoon ko din naman gusto ang fried pork. Piliin pa din ang may good layers ng lean and fat. This one is a Pork Steak cut.

Fry it using Lauric Coconut Oil. Good fat pa din syempre.

For the side dish, buy the kimchi that has no sugar or less. Malalaman yun if nasa pinaka dulo ng ingredient list ang sugar.

Kimchi, being fermented, has high probiotics content which is really good for digestion. It also has a lot fibers which helps cleanse our system.

Eat and enjoy!
