Bulalo Fiesta


Bulalo Fiesta

Wednesday last week, I met with a new friend. In our efforts to find a good place to eat at, wefound ourselves in Nova Stop, a food court just outside Robinson's Place Novaliches that serves food 24/7. The food place is called Bulalo Fiesta, and although they serve different foods, we decided to order bulalo - after all, the place is called Bulalo Fiesta!

The food is good.... but I was just wondering why there is a slice of bell pepper in it. Hehehehe. But really, this bowl is good - enough to feed 2 -3 people. And eating under a nipa hut.. Yummy!

I will be away for a few days, I am traveling to Baguio tonight. Food blogging resumes Wednesday next week. Thanks for dropping by!

Cravings Satisfied

Jollibee Lunch

Since Friday, I have been craving for Jollibee. I kept on murmuring and murmuring to myself that I would love to eat Jollibee... and at times I was hoping they won't cook any food and just have some Jollibee delivered, but nobody seemed to have heard my murmurs... Heheheh.

Yesterday, I was with mom and sister and after hearing the Sunday mass, we went out to buy clothes. There was a Jollibee nearby, and we opted to have lunch there instead. Hmmm.... yummy Jollibee!

Colette's Buco Pie


Buco Pie

This image has been in my files since last year. I intend to post this for the longest time, but it had just gone forgotten... until now. This picture's actually old already that I forgot the story behind this - all I can remember was that sister brought this home from Laguna (where else).

So many varieties of buco pie coming from Laguna, but the one I loved the most was Colette's. Their buco pie filling is so creamy and it had lots of buco - really worth it! People mentioned that there's a buco pie that is much more delicious than Colette's, but when I tasted it, I still vote for Colette's.

Stove Top "Baked Mac"

Stove Top Baked Mac

Weekends are typically the days when most of us in the family are just lazy to cook food. =) For lunch yesterday, mom reheated some left over and cooked this macaroni dish. At first glance, it just look like typical baked mac, but the unusual about it was that this was stove top cooked using my mom's stainless steel cookware (which you can just cover and let the heat trapped inside cook the food). Another unusual thing about this was that mom added the leftover chicken sisig as the pasta's meat. Hmmm... it was good, actually.

I used a measuring cup to present the dish.

I Saw the "Food" Sign!


I struggled a bit for this week's theme, that as of this writing, I still am not convinced if I did the right thing. I wanted to use the picture I have of this food place with a funny sign, but it's no longer operational, so I decided to think of another thing to post. Searching through the old files led me to this.

Cafe Leona

Cafe Leona

In November of 2008, my British friend K went back to the Philippines and asked me to come on a holiday for 10 days. After checking out some places in Manila, we took the bus going to Vigan City, and on our first night we decided to eat dinner in Cafe Leona. Actually, at first we opted to eat the hotel were we stayed at, but the chef already left, so we had to go out. By the entrance of Calle Crisologo is Cafe Leona, and during night time, diners can choose from the produce they have in the cart and watch their food being cooked, then dine under the stars. Of course, people can still choose to eat inside the establishment and order from the menu.

Bacalao in Hollandaise Sauce

As featured in an old post, I chose to eat Bacalao with Hollandaise Sauce. It was one of the best tasting fish I have eaten. Quite expensive at 200+ pesos, but for a very delicious fish cut nearly as big as the sizzling plate, it was very much worth it. Well, K took care of it, all the more that I loved the fish (Mwah, K!)

Different Kinds of Sugar

But what I love about this food place was that when diners order coffee, they serve it three types of sugar to suit one's taste. I think I chose to put Splenda on my coffee that night. =)

Making a comeback after a long hiatus from Food Friday...


Here in Food Friday, I want to feature foods that I personally cooked. During my hiatus, I sort of stopped taking pictures of the foods I cooked, and now that I am coming back, I realized I have nothing to share. =) So, at 10am this morning, I stopped playing Farm Town and decided to cook carbonara. After all, tummy was complaining as well.

I used sweet ham as my meat for the dish, and added some chopped bell peppers to add a little flavor. I was happy that we have nutmeg in the pantry again; when the bottle of nutmeg crushed into pieces, sister and I felt our heart was crushed, too! We love the taste of nutmeg in our dairy laden foods.

I set my camera to cloudy, hence the yellowish tone... if you have some tips about taking food pictures, please don't hesitate to throw in some for me. Thanks!

Lunch at Congo Grille... again.


Congo Grille

I already posted one picture taken on the same day, but it concentrated on one food, while this one will feature all the foods us three girls (mom, sis, and I) ate at Congo Grille last April.

Whenever we eat there, I always order their Crispy Spicy Squid Heads. Yes, it's basically the same as the regular calamari, but I still cannot resist not ordering this one. The beef kare-kare is another Congo Grille favorite, we just love how the dish was just right for our taste, although I still prefer it in the traditional palayok (clay pot). My sister's favorite is the sisig, and is already taking the liking of ordering it during our last few visits in the food place. Actually, their sisig was the best sisig I have tasted.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
