Pastry Chef

An intimate dinner was held for our family to celebrate Inigo’s birthday.

Pastry Chef seemed to be the most requested resto, so we held the celebration here. This resto offers an eat-all-you-can buffet dining, with international dishes, and of course, Pinoy cuisine.

Happiest birthday, Inigo!

Pinoy Breakfast

Filipino foods are being made available in the UAE due to the increase in the number of Pinoys working there. But nothing beats the real taste of eating home food at your real home. Tastes way more better.

Intemtem or Tupig is a popular native delicacy from Pangasinan which is made out of ground glutinous rice and coconuts strips wrapped in banana leaves. It is coooked in charcoal instead of the usual steaming. A family friend travelled all the way to bring these tupigs.

The purple food is called biko. Biko is made of glutinous rice, coconut milk, and brown sugar is the ultimate snack or dessert. This classic Filipino rice is deliciously sweet, creamy, chewy, and gluten-free! They made a twist with this one by giving it a violet color.

Pandesal or pan de sal (Filipino and Spanish for “bread of salt”), is a common bread roll in the Philippines. It is made of flour, eggs, yeast, sugar and salt.

Lunch with the Pantanillas

Every vacation, the Pantanilla family makes sure that they get a lunch date from us. It is usually their treat, and they try to bring us to really nice restos around.

This time, we went to Jeca’s, which is a very Pinoy resto located just in front of the new Malolos Municipal Building. The food was in modest servings and the taste was perfect, especially if you long for Pinoy cuisines.

After this, we were also treated to some Starbucks frap, for I guess, dessert 😀

Thank you, Pantanillas!

Visited our high school teacher and wedding ninang Mam Estrellita Dayao. Got her some presents from UAE. Didith and I share the same high school teachers because we went to the same high school. Wifey, by the way, is our Class Valedictorian.
