Sushi Delivery at Sushi Dito


I fancy Japanese food  and it feels  great to be one of the lucky bloggers who were chosen to grace the opening of the newest Japanese Restaurant in town.

Sushi Dito has a wide variety of Japanese food that will really make you drool. And the very good news is... you don't need to go to their place to have a taste of their mouth-watering specialties because you can order it online thru their website or you may call their store's  hotline number for delivery.

Tempura Maki @P150for 8pieces; P85 for 4 pieces
Spicy Salmon Roll @P190 for 8 pieces ; P90 for 4 pieces
Egg Maki @ P120 for 8 pieces ; P70 for 4 pieces
The food they served us was all delightful and was made even attractive because of the way they were presented. I must say that the presentation itself is more than enough to make you crave. I like everything I tasted  but my personal favorite is Tempura Maki because of its  prawn and lettuce combination. I look forward to try Sushi Dito's Rice Bowls which is already a complete meal.

Grilled Pork Liempo





Sliced Grilled Pork Liempo with Fresh Cucumber
If there is one thing our family loves doing it's nonetheless but eat. Since Mama and Papa are in-charge of the kitchen they were the ones who decide and prepare what would be the food for the particular meal.

Papa prepared Grilled Pork Liempo for dinner the other night. It was very delicious because he marinated it with special sauce for an hour. It was even made healthy and appetizing  with fresh cucumber.

Pancit Miki Guisado


Cooking is a chore always assigned to my mom and dad at home. Although  I graduated with a background in food but I am  not really into cooking. My contribution is to taste and "evaluate" their finished products and give comments afterwards.  And one of my mom's best recipe is the Pancit Miki Guisado. This recipe is mainly made of pork and pancit miki but you can choose to enhance the taste by  adding  shrimp and of course more vegetables.

Here is mom's Pancit Miki Guisado Recipe:

1/2 K miki (noodles)
1/4 pork perna / adobo cut ( sliced into small parts)
1/4 K shrimp (peeled off)
2 standard sized carrots (sliced )
1 cabbage (sliced)
2 tbsp. sliced onion leaves
1 red bellpepper (sliced)
3 tbsp. of minced garlic
1 onion, thinly sliced
6 tbsps. of cooking oil
2 cups hot  water
Soy Sauce/ Oyster Sauce*
Seasonings (MSG/Magic Sarap)*
Ground Pepper*
Sugar*
Salt*

Procedure:
  • Wash fresh Miki in running water to remove its saltiness and oiliness.
  • Heat the cooking oil in the skillet. 
  • Saute shrimp until it  becomes pink. Set Aside.
  • Add  the pork fat until the oil is thoroughly removed.
  • Add and saute garlic and onion together with sliced pork
  • Add shrimp, cabbage,  carrots, salt, pepper, sugar and seasonings.
  • Mix together then set aside 3/4 parts.
  • Add hot water then add Miki.
  • Occasionally  stir and taste. Adjust the taste  by adding seasonings*.
  • When cooked, add the 3/4 parts of the ingredients (usually as topping).
  • Garnish with red bell pepper and onion leaves.
  • Serve hot. Enjoy!
*Depends on the desired taste.

 It can also be eaten as is or paired with bread. This Pancit Miki Guisado recipe is always part of our weekly diet because the ingredients are readily available and cooking can be done easily.

Lechon Baboy (Roasted Pig)


My  last night with Sue and Jiwon  before they will go home to Korea are supposed to be spent eating a yummy lechon baboy. Sue wanted Jiwon to taste it but I was informed  a little late.  Although we tried looking for a restaurant in Davao who serves lechon  biik  but we could not find any. That is why we ended up  eating at a  Korean Restaurant.

I know  Sue and Jiwon will be following me through my blogs  so  I purposely add Google Translator in all my blogs for them to easily  translate my posts in their own language. Anyway, speaking of Lechon Baboy; prior to Sue and Jiwon's arrival in Davao I had an opportunity to ate lechon ( all by myself... just giving in to my craving) at a Lechon House along Chavez Street and also during my Uncle's birthday celebration.

Sue and Jiwon, don't worry the next time you visit Davao I will let you eat lechon baboy.  Looking forward to have this one on Bella's birthday too..wink**

Dinner at Kimchi Restaurant


My Korean friends Sue and Jiwon have taught me a lot about their culture. In their almost one  week stay in the house, I have learned so many things about them which made me decide to study Korean language and explore more about their country. My interest in everything Korean is brought about by watching  Korean TV Shows specifically what we call "Koreanovelas" and of course knowing my dearest Sue.

On their last night here in Davao, Sue and Jiwon decided to have dinner at Kimchi Restaurant because Grace (Sue's former English Tutor) wanted to eat Kimchi Chige. Sue actually introduced the food to her way back in 2006 when she was still doing her volunteer job in KOICA. I got excited because it was also my first time  eating in a  Korean restaurant.

The food was all new to me but I  really enjoyed it especially the Kimchi Chige and Japche Bap. Only Sue ate most of the Bibim Guksu because its chili flavor is just too strong for the rest of us. The dining experience was really fun and very memorable for me because it was my first time eating all Korean food for dinner. The side dishes are unlimited and you can  order as long as you want. The owner are so gracious for  giving us  free slices of pineapple for dessert.  

It was such a super fun night and was   made even unforgettable because of Sue and Jiwon's  presence. It was my first time eating Korean food in a Korean restaurant and definitely not the last.

Pork Bulgogi by Sue and Jiwon

Pork Bulgogi... Sue's Recipe

Jiwon, Myself and Sue
My visiting Korean friends Sue and Jiwon wanted the family to have a taste of Korean food. And during the very first day of her stay here in Davao, Sue went to a Korean grocery store to  buy some ingredients for her Pork Bulgogi recipe amidst the rain and the flood.

According to Jiwon and Sue, Bulgogi recipe can either be pork or beef. This is one of the very common and also a popular  Korean food because it is  easy to prepare.  Together with Bren, Sue marinated the pork lean meat  with Bulgogi Sauce, more onions, garlic and other ingredients.This can also be mixed with your favorite vegetables and can also be grilled or stir-fried.

Although  we wanted to have this during our dinner the other night but since we are soaked wet in a heavy rain, Sue let Jiwon cooked it this morning. The taste is good and the meat is so tender. It has a perfect blend of sweetness and spiciness.  The whole family really had a good  day because we started our morning with this delectable Pork Bulgogi made out of love by Sue and Jiwon. Kamsa Hamnida!

Durian Season in Davao

 
Aside from the  beautiful beaches and Philippine Eagles, Davao is also known for its Durian production. Durian Season  usually starts from   August especially during Kadayawan Festival until October. But I observed that  Durian eaters and visitors during Kadayawan did not enjoy much on Durian this year  because of its low production and high cost. Durian prices last Kadayawan ranges from 80-100 pesos per kilo. 

And now that Durian is in Season, I personally enjoyed and took advantage of it. I buy Durian almost everyday especially when I go to the downtown area. Prices now ranges from 30-50 pesos and there are a lot of varieties to choose from.  Some varieties are Puyat ( my super fave), Arancillo ( second fave), native, COB, chanee and a lot more. 


Arancillo... So Sweet and Creamy...

Since Durian is in Season, you can practically find it anywhere in the City especially near the Public Markets.  Most of us in the family eat Durian ( including Bella) but my father never tasted it because he couldn't stand the smell. So to all of you who wants to try Durian and but discouraged by its smell, this is how I described it... It smells like hell but tastes like heaven. Try one and you will be begging for more. Believe me because that was how I started eating and loving Durian.

Lunch at Mandarin Tea Garden


Hubby and I  both love Chinese food. We used to frequent most of the Chinese Restaurants here in the city when I was still working at the downtown area. But now that I already have Bella,  we can only eat out or even go out on a date "when necessary." It means that being on a date is only a side trip to our intended purpose of going out.

Speaking of  "necessary", hubby took a leave from work last week to finalize some transactions with the bank. Since the occasion calls for it, before heading home hubby and I ate the "necessary" lunch at the nearby branch of Mandarin Tea Garden.

I ordered Pork Asado Rice Toppings while hubby ordered his ever-favorite Beef Brisket Rice Toppings. We also added Pork Siomai to our order.

We were so full and  very delighted with our lunch and of course very happy with the opportunity to go on a "date" even just for a while. We did a little shopping  for Bella  and have his cellular phone repaired before going home.

Pork Adobo with Pineapple Chunks


This is one of my mom's  specialty recipe. I was out that day so I didn't have the chance to see how she cook her Pork Adobo with Pineapple Chunks. I think this is just a usual Pork Adobo  recipe but with a twist of Pineapple chunks which made this dish very appetizing.

 My hubby doesn't really like the pineapple but  I so love it. The sweet and sour combination of pork adobo and pineapple is just so perfect for my palate. Macky has even eaten  what's left on his Tito Bren's share. Good job mother and thank you for cooking with TLC.

McDonald's Treat

I seldom went out to shop or buy anything in the mall but when I do I usually make the most of it. Just the other day, I needed to go to the  downtown area to pay for our internet bill and since I was already there,  I took sometime to shop and buy some stuff for Bella and Macky. It was a hot afternoon so I stopped by at my fave fastfood chain to refresh. 

And here's what I have for myself.... 


Burger Mcdo (M) and Hot Fudge Sundae

My best buddy Exper was also very full with her McSpaghetti and Burger Mcdo. We couldn't eat  all our orders so we both decided to bring home the burgers.

Bella has turned nine months last week  and it has been a family practice to prepare a little something for her every time she celebrates her monthly birthdays. Mama and Papa  being the household chefs wanted to cook something they haven't done before. And guess what it is? A homemade lechon manok!



Daddy's finished product! Deliciously made... No need for more sauce!

Asado/Chicken/Wanton Noodles Soup

The news says our City  will be experiencing rainy days due to  Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). Does  this  means that rainy days are here to stay? Tsk.Tsk.Tsk... We're definitely going to experience cold weather, and this made me crave for my favorite soup; the hot Asado/Chicken/Wanton Noodle Soup from Mandarin Tea Garden!

Coffee and Crackers: My Buddies


I used to dislike coffee. But when I got pregnant, I have developed this craving for coffee. I heard some people saying that coffee is not good for pregnant women because it can be abortive if taken excessively.  But my day wouldn't be complete without a cup of coffee and that's where my coffee story started.

Since the time that I have fixed my mind on working and earning online, my sleeping habits have changed. I went to bed at dawn most of the time. When I feel  sleepy, I fight it with crackers and a cup of  instant coffee. My husband was actually not supportive about my sleeping late and  my coffee habit especially that  I am still breastfeeding Bella.

Pia Mallows: A Chocolate Company

Who wants chocolates? I think most of us not only want but love chocolates. Last weekend, I was given an opportunity to be with fellow bloggers to conduct a review on the products of Pia Mallows. The company was inspired by the owner's love for chocolate. Kai decided to produce gourmet chocolate herself when she could not found one in her hometown.

The birth of Pia Mallows was not that easy. Kai went through an extensive online research and stayed in contact with mentors from Canada and some Asian countries to train. After some strenuous  training and trial and errors on product  research and development, Kai was finally ready to share her happiness to others. Chocolate for her is happiness and with the commitment to being "everything chocolate", thus Pia Mallows was created. 




Goodies  from Pia Mallows are  made from  100% European Chocolates together with the  highest quality of local ingredients. All treats are free of preservatives which only means that it is  safe  to be given to your little ones.
