Holy Week Recipe

Holy Week calls for an entire week of fasting and abstinence. This means that your list of meal choices gets drastically trimmed down. But there are still plenty of meals you can whip up at home that are still scrumptious but guilt-free. Here are some great dishes with their corresponding recipes to try out courtesy of Philips.

Prepare a simple pasta dish with portabello mushrooms for the family this Holy Week and stay true to your fasting and abstinence duties. Usually an extender for meat dishes, the mushroom will surely provide a healthy alternative from the usual meaty pasta. Definitely this will be one of the go-to dishes for an entire week.

But just because you have to abstain from meat, doesn’t mean you have to forego nutrients. Seal in all the nutrients of all the ingredients of the pasta dish as well as every meal you wish to cook with the Philips Induction Cooker HD4932.

Ponder No More: Get You're Pon de Ring at Mr. Donut Cafe

From Japan to the Philippines, the ring of chewy, fluffy, irresistible little balls know as Pon de Ring is now being served at Mr. Donut Café. Outside, it looks liked a ring of donut balls stuck together, but inside the slightly crunchy exterior is something words can’t explain.  When I heard that the Pon de Ring is chewy, my question is “How can you make a donut chewy”. Well Mr. Donut Café is serving Pon de Ring, so it can be done. But just because Mr. Donut Café can do it, it doesn’t, mean that others could do it. Mr. Donut is the only who could give their donut that chewiness and it’s a secret ingredient that I can’t find out because, if I did find out about it then I’m dead (just joking).

Fely J's Kitchen: The All Time Pinoy Resto

It’s often said that if you’re a Kapampangan, you are definitely a good cook.  If ever you are looking for an authentic Filipino restaurant then you better head on to Fely J’s Kitchen located at the 2nd Level of Greenbelt 5 in Ayala Center, Makati. Having a mom who’s also a Kapampangan, I’m always on the look out for Filipino restaurant that served truly Pinoy dishes. 

Being a food adventurist who tasted different cuisine, nothing beats the Pinoy food. Fely J’s Restaurant is nothing but ordinary. The setting of the restaurant may simple but that simplicity embodied a woman who is graceful, natural and true.

I grew up loving the dish, sinigang. Fely J’s Restaurant Sinigang Pork Ribs should not a miss in our order. Fely J’s Sinigang Pork Rib soup is made up of natural bayabas fruit. The bayabas was puree to make as the base soup main ingredients, no artificial flavoring was used that’s why its so ______ (I don’t know how to explain it, but you really have to taste it so that you too will be speechless, this dish top my list).

Next, the Kare Kare Klab. To tell you the truth; with just the sauce itself and its vegetable, I’m done. Done meaning,” buhay na buhay na ko “. The sauce is made from scratch, meaning the peanut was grinded to serve as the sauce. The vegetable still maintain their crispiness. The meats are tender and I actually didn’t use the bagoong since it’s still flavorful. Five thumbs up to this dish.

For health conscious, there’s the Gule Magalang. So simple yet flavorful. Combining the leaves of three different vegetable with the pumpkin was a hit.

For meat lovers like my friend, she recommends the Lamb Kaldereta.

And don’t forget to order the Fely J’s Temple Crab, its spiciness will hit you like a bomb and you will ask for more.

Now, lets go to our dessert. Do ask for the Sikreto Ni Maria. The good old combination of manga and suman will never go wrong.

Fely J’s Kitchen, a restaurant dedicated to the memory of Felicidad de Jesus-Cruz, mother of the late restaurateur Larry J. Cruz, features Fely J’s treasured recipes which she picked up in her travels. The restaurant offers a variety of Filipino and Asian dishes served Fely J’s style: fresh, natural and attractive, just as she was herself, a pretty, adventurous woman who grew old gracefully without artificial touches.

Espressemente Cafe : Hot or Cold , It's the sure way to a Good Coffee

A good coffee seems to be the best way to end a feast. It seems I’m becoming addicted to coffee now a day. With so many variants to choice from whether hot or cold, Espressamente is a good place to go. Espressemente located in Rockwell is one of the four branches that you could find in the Metro. Placed near some of the other coffee shop, this dainty café reflects elegance and class. With an outdoor ambiance and comfortable setting, having a cup of coffee is a sure delight. I’m not surprised that even celebrities dine in Espressemente..  I was having a hard time choosing what to drink that we decided to let the smiling staff served their best. I got to taste almost everything that was put in our table. We shared everything for us to be able to get a taste of the best from Espressemente.

Chef Gusto's Pizza Plus : Everything served is at Plus Sizes

They say that we sometimes judge based on what we see this I beg to disagree. Based on my experience you have to have the courage to try or test or get to know one particular something before you say your piece and in this case, the restaurant.
Chef’s Gusto Pizza Plus is located at Concord Bldg. 2020 Salcedo Road cor Benavidez Legaspi Village Makati. The entrance door  is the first thing that I noticed immediately for it was not those I found in regular restaurant that’s made of glass and with all the fancy trimming, this door is made of fine solid wood that welcome every guest that comes in. The entire restaurant is oozing with class, elegance and sophistication and I would not argue if you will feel intimidated. But I have to say that intimidation is the least thing Chef’s Gusto Pizza Plus wants you to feel.  The intimidation stops on the set-up for the food is reasonable and there’s a big Plus that’s waiting for every guest that comes in.
