Got to try this excellent Tres Leches tin cake from Bite.MNL yesterday!
Tres leches is one of those cakes that’s deceptively simple—because you’re showcasing the pure flavor of milk, the quality of the ingredients really matters. I think they succeeded with that here; it’s got real whipped cream and a moist, milk-soaked cake base that’s barely sweet. I also love the touch of cinnamon on top, which adds just the right amount of warmth without taking away from the flavor of the milk!

Raise your hands if you like your cookies on the thick and chewy side! I sure do, so these C.C.M. Cookies by B's Patisserie were really quite a treat:
C.C.M. stands for chocolate, cornflakes, and marshmallows—and the combo totally works! The cornflakes add a welcome crunch and nuttiness while the mallows amp up the chewiness in the thick dough. They're especially good after a quick (2-3 minute) pop in the oven toaster!

This Filipino Version of The Little Prince Makes for a Great Christmas Gift
I love a good strawberry dessert, so I was really happy to have gotten to try FRNK’s new Flourless Ichigo Chizu Cake last weekend!
First off, it’s so light—I’d describe it as being a cross between a mousse and a souffle cheesecake, and it’s so ethereal that it literally melts in your mouth. And while it’s definitely creamy, you can really taste the tart and fresh berries in the strawberry layer!

Ayala Triangle Gardens' Christmas Display Goes Virtual for 2020
Anyone else a little bummed that they won’t be able to see the incredible light display at the Ayala Triangle Gardens this year? 🥺 As you might expect, there’s no on-ground installation taking place this year. However, the tradition is going virtual!

Korean-style fried chicken is my second favourite fried-chicken style (next to Filipino), so I was super happy to have gotten to try the version by Yang Gang!
ot to try three flavors: the Fire O.G., Kimchi BBQ, and Sweet Curry. It’s worth noting that they were nice and crisp when they arrived, and juicy on the inside! I loved all flavors but most especially the Fire O.G., which has just the right amount of heat without overpowering the chicken. It’s especially good when dipped in their cheese sauce, which they call the O.G. crack!

Here’s a great seafood dish I got to try yesterday: Granivore’s Baked Salmon and Cauliflower platter!
Here’s a great seafood dish I got to try yesterday: Granivore’s Baked Salmon and Cauliflower tray!
I LOVE salmon in pretty much any shape or form, and here it’s baked (just enough but it’s still silky and buttery on the inside!) in a creamy sauce. I love how it went with the earthy roasted cauliflower (I’m the kind who can finish a whole head of the vegetable in one sitting) and the Israeli couscous, which is peppered with sweet and tangy dried cranberries. Pro tip: if you're reheating it, be sure to do so gently so as not to overcook the salmon. Definitely consider this platter for the holidays!
