Rise and shine with Sinangag Express

We hear it all the time: it’s best to start our day with a hearty meal. After all, we need to have nourishment to fuel us for the day.

While some would go for breads or cereals as their starter meal, we Pinoys gravitate towards silogs.

Sinangag Express Eastwood

Silogs are made with sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (fried egg) partnered with the ulam (viand) of choice. There’s something about day-old-rice that’s been sauteed with garlic and sunny-side-up fried eggs that perfectly frames the flavors of classic Pinoy breakfasts.

The Jelly List: Yummy national flavors to stoke your Pinoy Pride via GrabFood

With the Philippine Independence Day just around the corner, it’s definitely time to look back on some of the things that we can be proud of as a nation.

Being a foodie, I consider the sheer wondrous variety and flavor of Filipino cuisine as a definite achievement. Using our local ingredients and culinary traditions from our forbears as well as influences from foreigners and we produced a highly diverse, down-home yet flavorful array of dishes that are close to our hearts and appeal to our tastebuds.

Despite enjoying Filipino food in our hapag-kainan at home, we also go out and dine at Filipino restaurants because we simply can’t get enough of these flavors and we appreciate the unique spins that local chefs apply to our classic dishes.

And with the restrictions on dining out still in effect because of the pandemic, we are lucky that we can still have our Pinoy food cravings satisfied by our suking Filipino restaurants by having our favorite dishes delivered via GrabFood.

Check out latest #JellyList of Filipino dishes that you can enjoy at home:

Bulalong Lugaw by Soleras

Soleras, Banawe

The hearty rice porridge which serves as our go-to comfort food during rainy days just got a decadent makeover with the addition of hefty pieces of beef shanks (complete with bone marrow!).

Pancit Lucban by Buddy’s

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

I’m ever so glad that Lucban, Quezon’s famous pancit habhab is readily available for us Metro Manila denizens to enjoy.

A taste of Spain with Alba and GrabFood

Considering how Spanish cuisine has been a huge influence on Pinoy food, it’s a wonder that I didn’t get to eat often at Spanish restaurants, even during pre-pandemic times.

From Spain’s richly storied culinary heritage as well as the influx of new ingredients courtesy of the galleon trade, we get the rich and colorful dishes that we have adapted and oftentimes reserve for special occasions.

Alba, Estancia

Alba, Estancia

Since the 1950s, Alba Restaurante Espanol has been the go-to place for authentic Spanish food. Established by Don Anastacio Alba over sixty-five years ago, this restaurant has been satisfying the Filipino palate with tasty Spanish comfort food.

Alba, Estancia

Alba, Estancia

A few years ago, before the lockdowns which arose because of the pandemic, my officemates and I were able to expand our culinary horizons by having one of our happy lunches at Alba’s Tomas Morato branch.

Alba, Tomas Morato

Alba, Tomas Morato

Alba, Tomas Morato

Recently, I was able to revisit Alba’s cuisine for my second quarantine birthday, when my boss had a Paella Valenciana (Php580) delivered to my home as a birthday treat. It’s a show-stopping rice dish made with chicken, pork, seafood and veggies that’s hearty enough to satisfy the whole family, but whetted my appetite for more of Alba’s offerings.

Alba Estancia

Alba Estancia

Fortunately, with GrabFood’s Taste the World campaign, I was able to sate my craving for Spanish comfort food. The campaign’s last leg featured European food and granted 50% discount (maximum of Php150), for orders made from 10am to 2pm.

Alba, Estancia

Alba, Estancia

With Alba’s Eatancia branch available for long-distance delivery via GrabFood, I was able to treat the fam to a delicious taste of Spain right in our home, which included:

Salchichas con Champignon (Php250). A tapas caliente (hot appetizer) made with slices of Spanish sausage sautéed with mushroom, garlic and chili.

Alba, Estancia

Alba, Estancia

Alba, Estancia

Gambas Al Ajillo (Php370). Another tapas caliente made with shrimps sauteed in olive oil, garlic and chili, which is definitely becoming a family favorite, especially when paired with hot crusty bread.

Alba, Estancia

Callos ala Madrilena (Php420). Stewed ox-tripe in a rich tomato sauce.

Lengua Sevillana (Php500). Stewed ox tongue with mushroom and olives in a rich sherry brown sauce.

Alba, Estancia

Paella Negra (Php650). Paella given its distinctive dark hue and rich umami flavor by squid ink, stuffed squid and shrimps.

Alba, Estancia

There’s a reason why most of these dishes are only served during special occasions: it’s the sheer amount of time, effort and expertise that go into preparing these dishes. But simply by coursing your order from Alba via GrabFood, you can enjoy these delectable viands in the comfort of your home.

Mother’s Day feast from Buddy’s

Ooh! It’s Mother’s Day once again!

And I just have to say: I’m feeling quite loved and appreciated with a rare and very welcome treat: a feast of my favorite Filipino food that I didn’t have to prepare myself nor plan for!

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

These delectable dishes were delivered by Buddy’s, a home-grown chain of restaurants hailing from Lucban, Quezon, home of the Pahiyas Festival. During this vibrant celebration, held on the 15th of May, all the houses and the streets are decorated (hence the term “pahiyas“) with colorful kiping, leaf-shaped wafers made from glutinous rice as well as local harvest goods.

Festival visitors are invited to partake in every household’s sumptuous array of Lucban’s delicacies, some of which are included in the Mother’s Day spread that Buddy’s provided for me:

Pancit Lucban (Php240 | good for up to 3 persons). Also known as Pancit Habhab, it is Lucban’s version of pancit which makes use of Lucban miki noodles and usually eaten without utensils but is served on a banana leaf. It is also seasoned with some Lucban vinegar for added flavor but I prefer it without. Given how filling and affordable this dish was, I used to celebrate my kids’ monthly develop milestones by bringing home an order of Buddy’s Pancit Lucban for dinner.

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

Lucban Longganisa (Php220 small | Php356 large | 1 dozen). Lucban’s version of the pork sausage which is characterized by its garlicky and sour taste. Back when my office was located near a Buddy’s branch, I used to make it a point have breakfast there with Lucban longganisa, garlic fried rice and fried egg.

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

Hardinera (Php185 small | Php220 medium | Php315 large). A type of Filipino meatloaf that combines the ingredients of menudo and the cooking style of embutido, resulting in a meaty dish with a savory and tomato-ey flavor.

Buddy’s Mother’s Day

Snackable baked goodies from Breadtalk, SM East Ortigas

To be honest, my quarantine life has been made so much more bearable by the joys of snacking.

Breadtalk, SM East Ortigas

Breadtalk, SM East Ortigas

Munching on some sweet or savory pastries in the afternoon after office Zoom meetings or during tutoring sessions with my son help to tide me over until dinnertime, giving me that much-needed energy boost. When my kids and I get a case of the munchies late at night, we also reach for some breads that we pair with our favorite spreads.

Birthday lunch from Lido Cocina Tsina, C. Raymundo

Celebrations call for good food enjoyed with loved ones and my recent birthday was no exception.

My family and I sat down for a sumptuous birthday lunch of delicious Tsinoy comfort food in hearty servings delivered right to our doorstep from Lido Cocina Tsina.

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

This homegrown Chinese food chain came about in the 1930s when Cantonese chef Mr. Lido started a modest eatery in Binondo called Panciteria Lido. Rebranded as Lido Cocina Tsina, it has become a byword for Chinese dishes that appeal to Pinoy taste buds.

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

During my recent birthday, I was able to introduce the fam to some of my favorites from Lido Cocina Tsina as well as tried some new dishes:

Yang Chow Fried Rice (Php132). For me, a Chinese meal wouldn’t be one without this egg fried rice mixed with shrimp, pork, carrots and spring onions.

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

Shrimp Foo Yong (Php468). Ever since I had my first taste of this Lido-style egg omellete with shrimps, mushrooms and vegetables, and served in a nice and light oyster sauce a year ago, I haven’t been able to resist it.

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

Lido Cocina Tsina, Rosario

One thing I’ve noted about Chinese food, especially the ones here at Lido that have been adapted to the Pinoy palate, is that varied combinations tend to mesh well together. The dynamics of sweet, sour, salty and spicy, as well as the different textures from various ingredients complement and play off one another, making it easy to select a new dish to add to your go-to orders when you’re feeling adventurous or looking for a change.

GrabFood Signatures family dinner from Cafe Mary Grace

I admit: having been “stuck at home” for more than a year has got me a bit tired of the usual home-cooked ulam.

Every once in a while, I want to treat the fam to something special: mouthwatering viands that go beyond the usual gisasigangprito that comprise my business-as-usual cooking repertoire.

If you have the same problem, then we’re both in luck, because Grab recently launched its newest program, GrabFood Signatures. It partnered with popular restaurants to offer amazing deals on best-selling food and drink, exclusively for GrabFood users.

One such restaurant is Cafe Mary Grace.

Welcome the cherry blossom season with Starbucks’ Sakura series

In Japan, the advent of spring season is welcomed by the blossoming of sakura – more commonly known to us as cherry blossoms – from the last week of March to mid-April.

Widely considered as Japan’s national flower, these beautiful and delicate, pale pink blooms figure prominently in Japanese culture.

Starbucks Sakura Series

When the blossoming peaks, usually in the first week of April, it is a wondrous sight, prompting locals and visitors alike to hold tea ceremonies called hanami and other festivities to coincide with cherry blossom viewings.

We may not be able to travel to Japan to see these lovely blooms for ourselves but we can recreate the experience at home by having these Starbucks limited-edition Strawberry Sakura drinks delivered via GrabFood.

Filling Japanese lunch at Yoshinoya, SM Megamall

Back when my office was located in the Ortigas area, a lunchtime sojourn to SM Megamall was a frequent occurrence.

For one thing, it’s just a short cab (or FX) ride away; my officemates and I can easily grab a quick meal, enjoy the change of scenery, and be back at our desk usually before our bosses came back from their own lunch outs.

Another reason is the sheer number of affordable and delicious dining options available, which, sadly, far outnumbers those housed in our office building’s cafeteria.

Yoshinoya, SM Megamall

One of our favorite SM Megamall haunts is Yoshinoya, the second-largest chain of gyudon restaurants in the world. It makes Japanese rice bowls and more easily accessible to Pinoys through its affordable menu items that don’t scrimp on fresh ingredients.

Yoshinoya, SM Megamall

Sadly, our office moved locations and a lunchtime trip to Yoshinoya is no longer as convenient.

Plus, with the quarantine restrictions still in place, I really haven’t been going out much.

That is, until my daughter #ExhibitA and I went shopping for supplies at SM Megamall.

Yoshinoya, SM Megamall

Giving in to #ExhibitA’s request for us to eat somewhere which offers gyoza, I decided to treat her to lunch at Yoshinoya. There, we refueled after a round of shopping with these dishes:

Gyoza (Php79). Pork and vegetable-filled dumplings steamed then pan-grilled for a satisfying mix of chewy and crunchy textures and served with a dipping sauce.

Yoshinoya, SM Megamall

California Maki (Php79). A sushi roll containing cucumber, kani and mango bits.

Pork Tonkatsu Bento (Php189). Deep fried breaded pork served in a bento box with macaroni salad, tiramisu and served with Tonkatsu sauce.

Regular Gyudon Beef (Php159 ala carte | Php189 solo meal with with red iced tea and coffee jelly). Tender beef slices are simmered in a special herb and spice broth together with sliced onions and then served on top of a bowl of steaming rice.

Yoshinoya, SM Megamall

Green Tea Ice Cream (Php50).

Well, with these flavorful Japanese dishes that don’t burn a whole through my wallet, I am quite satisfied with my return to Yoshinoya!

Dr. Wine presents a sneak peek into new menu by Chef Alain Raye

There’s a place hidden in the Poblacion suburbs where discriminating foodies can savor delicious French cuisine paired with the finest of vin.

Dr. Wine Manila – also known as Le Bistro du Dr. Wine – situated in Algiers Street just off Kalayaan Avenue and a few minutes walk away from Rockwell in Makati, is known for its cozy and rustic yet vibrant upscale premises, its extensive and well-curated collection of wines as well as the gastronomically delightful French dishes that emerge from its kitchen.

Dr. Wine, Poblacion

Dr. Wine, Poblacion

For weekend brunch, for example, diners may enjoy plateau de fruits de mer – platters of local mussels, clams and shrimps, as well as escargot of bulots and bigorneux snails, oysters and razor clams imported from France, all served on a bed of ice. These platters are accompanied by freshly baked artisanal bread from the restaurant’s sister bakery, Dr. Bread, salted butter and assorted sauces (of which, I think the Red Wine Vinaigrette with Shallots brings out all the fresh goodness of the seafood). These platters come in different serving sizes: Couple (Php2,899 | good for two), The Queen’s Platter (Php4,899 | good for four) and The Dr. King’s Platter (Php8,599 | good for six).

Tsinoy food feast at Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

More often than not, a dish with Chinese origins would make its way into a Filipino’s hapag-kainan.

This is hardly surprising as the Pinoys and the Chinese have been trading since even before the Spanish colonization.

Through the centuries, various waves of Chinese migration occurred, each bringing their own cultures, especially their culinary traditions, into the country.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

In the 1930s, a Cantonese chef known as Mr, Lido established a modest eatery in Binondo called Panciteria Lido. In the next eighty years, this eatery has grown into a chain of restaurants – now under the Lido Cocina Tsina brand – that are renowned for serving tasty Chinese dishes that also appeal to the Filipino palate.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Before the pandemic hit the metro last year, I was able to sample some of Lido’s signature dishes. These left quite an impression on me that when restrictions on dining out were recently loosened in the metro, I quickly grabbed the opportunity to bring my fellow foodie unnis – Jen of SandUnderMyFeet.com and Nix of IEatAndIWander.com – to the resto so they can taste for themselves what I had beem raving about for the past year.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

That day, the unnis feasted on delectable Tsinoy food which included:

Yang Chow Fried Rice (Php132). I couldn’t fathom a Chinese meal without this egg fried rice made heartier and more flavorful with shrimp, pork, carrots and spring onions.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Pugon Roasted Asado (Php436). Mr. Lido’s claim to fame from his eighty-year-old recipe of pork loin basted in precise proportions of Chinese herbs and spices, and then cooked in the a wood-fired brick oven which infuses the meat with a rich and smokey flavor. It’s great as a viand for the Yang Chow Fried Rice but it’s wonderful when used as a filling for hot pan de sal.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Sweet and Sour Pork (Php374). A dish that appeals to the Pinoy penchant for the sweet and sour combination. It’s made with fried pork pieces sauteed with pineapple chunks, bell peppers and onions and served in a sweet and sour sauce.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Shrimp Foo Yong (Php468). Ever since I had my first taste of this egg omelette with shrimp, mushroom and veggies served in light oyster sauce, I’ve been obsessed with it. Taste it for yourself and you’ll see what I mean.

Lido Cocina Tsina, New Manila

Buchi (Php138). Deep-fried sesame balls with lotus cream filling make for a satisfying cap for a hearty Chinese meal.

Here, we would binge on shrimps and mussels by the pound, drenched in flavorful sauces that would leave us wanting more.
