Spicy Chicken Ramen



After the disastrous lunch attempt at a local restaurant, I decided to give in to another craving - Japanese style ramen. This time though, I cooked the dish at home and gave it my own spin.

Here's what you'll need:

4 tablespoons of sesame oil
2 cans of chicken chunks in water
crushed chili (use according to your tolerance)
salt and pepper to taste
5 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 medium onion bulb finely chopped
1 pack of Japanese egg noodles (ramen) cooked according to package directions
3 medium boiled eggs
nori

1 head of lettuce julienned
1 sprig of green onions finely chopped

What to do:

1. In a pan, saute garlic and onion in sesame oil. Add the chicken chunks, cook well. 
2. Season the chicken in the pan and add the water, add more to make the broth
3. Simmer until the chicken is well done
4. Remove from heat

Serve

In a bowl, place the cooked ramen noodles
Add the veggies on the side
Top with the chicken and add broth 
Sprinkle with green onions 
Garnish with nori and half a boiled egg
Serve and enjoy

Brightest Blessings!

Kuya J's Restaurant



Last Saturday I found myself craving for halo-halo. As delicious as the one from Razon's is, I thought it was high time for us to look for another place where we can indulge our palates in this delectable dessert. We decided to go to Kuya J's Restaurant after a friend told me of their halo-halo serving.

Upon arriving at their branch in Cubao, Quezon City, we were famished so we decided to have lunch there as well. We ordered Pancit Palabok, Chicken Salad, Lumpiang Presko, and Calamansi Juice. We were informed that the order will take 15 to 20 minutes for preparation. We agreed to it. However, after placing our orders, the server came back and informed us that the Palabok, Lumpia, and Calamansi Juice were all UNAVAILABLE. That was the first disappointment. We decided to replace the Palabok with Pancit Canton, and yet again after the server informed the kitchen about it, he was again instructed to tell us that it was also UNAVAILABLE. 

In our frustration, we just decided to cancel all the main meal orders and just go with the halo-halo.

As the dessert was served, the waiter came to our table with two spoons in his BARE HANDS which he handed to us in such a hurry that both spoons almost fell to the floor. Oh, and before that, one waiter tried to take away the clean plates from our table after hearing that we cancelled our food orders. That was also unprofessional of them. 

The halo-halo though is another matter. It did not disappoint. The consistency of the shaved ice is so close to ice cream that you wouldn't even think of it as your typical ice on halo-halo. It wasn't too sweet, nor was it bland. If not for the service, I would definitely think about going back there just to get another serving of this cool and cold deliciousness. 


Brightest Blessings!

Soi Thai Restaurant | SM Megamall Atrium Branch



Benji and I went to Soi Restaurant in SM Megamall Atrium for dinner last Saturday. We ordered several dishes, including a serving of Chicken Phad Thai from the restaurant. 

On the menu it wasn't stated that it has dried shrimps as part of the ingredients. Upon eating said noodles, I immediately had an allergic reaction to it. My tongue felt thick, my lips were red and a bit swollen, the corners of my lips had some rashes, my chest was red, as well as part of my arms.

We called the manager immediately. The response we got after we complained was - "You should have informed us of your allergies so that we could have done something about it." Instead of apologizing, she immediately tried to turn the tables around. In response to that I said - "It is your responsibility as an establishment to list some common ingredients that can trigger allergies on the menu like shrimps (dried or fresh), peanuts, etc." for the simple reason, establishments have different ways of preparing certain dishes. 

After we complained, the manager didn't even offer any first aid remedies. We had to ask for sugar water! The restaurant didn't have a first aid kit in cases like mine. 

Lastly, we never received any apologies from said manager! Lesson learned - ask for the ingredients of a dish even if you have eaten it numerous times in different restaurants.


Brightest Blessings!
