Tteokbokki 1 - A homemade 떡볶이 Tteokbokki Recipe because I'm missing Seoul

In my 25 years of life, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to a handful of countries. Though I have been to three continents, I can still say with certainty that my heart belongs to Asia. To me, the countries in Asia alone will leave your soul satisfied in every aspect, may it be culture, …

Let’s cook Kimchi Fried Rice with the help of Petron Gasul!

As a home cook and baker, one of my major concerns has always been safety in the kitchen especially when it comes to my stove and oven. You know how sometimes you’re switching your oven off like it’s second nature without really thinking about it, and then you leave the house, are in your car …

Bagoong Rice Espesyal with Mura Sarap Bagoong

I really love it when different brands send me samples of their stuff. It’s always nice to be able to see what else is out there beyond what I’m familiar with, and the same applies for food.

The cheat’s 15-minute “Japanese” meal

Japanese cuisine is one of my favourites in the world. If I lived next door to an Omakase or even Sakura you would probably see me in there every other day! Luckily Manila does have its fair share of great Japanese restaurants. But as much as it would be great to eat out that often, …

My first encounter with quinoa

Think of this as a sort of palate-cleanser, if you will. I’m just excited to share this recipe today first and foremost because it’s my …
