ON FOOD TRIP: @ BLACKBEARD'S SEAFOOD ISLAND


Always food tripping with friends make my tummy hurts.  But not of nasty food but with full tummy and laughter after.  On food trip, checking out Blackbeard's Seafood Island restaurant, Moa branch.  We always dine together so we see to it that we check big serving and menu that serves 5-6 people or so..


The place offers set menu or what the usually call the Boodle Feast or you can choose whatever you like on ala carte.  We decided to have the Mt. Apo which serves 5-6 persons and we just ordered Salmon soup to add on.  


Mt. Apo Feast consists of  Imbao sa buco, steamed crabs, grilled pork belly or liempo, grilled chicken in coco milk, grilled squid, steamed shrimps, fried Tilapia, law-uy, Kinilaw na Tanigue fish fillet, balbakwa, grape seaweed salad with crispy dilis and salted fish rice.  Served in a big tray with layers of banana leaves.  You can eat right there altogether using your bare hands.  But then we still preferred using utensils or it will be all grossed out. 
  
Imbao sa buco or some shells in coconut
Balbawa or Ox skin

This meant that we enjoyed the food or let's just say, we really got big appetites!   Here is the link on what's on their menu.

We rated this out of 5:
Food: 4 
Ambiance/Location: 4
Service: 3 - I got Iced tea poured all over me and my new Mango bag at that time.  Well, it was not intended but they should have been more careful.

ON FOOD TRIP: STRAWBERRIES, KISSES & ICE CREAM

Strawberries i got from Baguio
When in Baguio, there is no going home without getting some strawberries from the market. One of my favorite fruits ever since.  Kurt, my nephew, liked it too and asked me to bring home some.  It was just good luck that they were sweet then so i got myself a couple of kilos to take home. But then along the way, i got tempted and ate almost a quarter. I just can't resist.

When i got home, my nephew and niece had a total blast.  With their ice cream, they indulged immediately with their cravings for the fruit. 




A heart shaped strawberry
I just wish we can have strawberries all year round and readily available here anywhere.  But we are living in the tropic and it's so frustrating. :(

WHAT'S COOKIN' SEAN?: ROSEMARY PORK CHOPS






Sean is cooking!  The aroma filled the room.  He is cooking his pork chops with rosemary.  He marinated the chops the night before making all the flavor sets in. Fried them a little over the pan and cooking it with it's sauce then until it is reduced and the meat tender. Voila! Bon appétit!

Shrimps, quail eggs, peas, carrots and potatoes

Beef soup

Chicken cutlets with gravy

Spring rolls


Crispy Pata (pork thigh)
We celebrated Kurt's birthday at Gilligan's, Greenbelt, Makati.

It was raining that time and we were soaking wet when we got in.  Every time with family for me is always precious.  Kurt joined me in other social networks with his photos up.  He also shared my interests as well in blogging and helps me out take pictures on some that i had posted here.  He finished his first story.  He got such wild imagination and so keen to have a book published in the future.  He has lots of interests, cooking is one of them.  He is always by my side everytime i am in the kitchen and do some errands in there.  Now he is thinking of becoming a chef. So many things he wanted to do.  I hope he ends up doing the career he loves the most.
