What's for dinner?

After weeks of not working in the kitchen, I'm so glad that I was able to prepare dinner for my nephews & nieces. By the way this is the first time that I have tried cooking sarciado... I guess I over cooked the egg! *lol*

Fish Sarciado
(Sarciadong Tilapia)


the ingredients

1 large tilapia (or any fish with white meat)
3 pieces medium tomatoes, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, julienned (optional)
2 medium eggs, slightly beaten
seasoning granules or salt and pepper
1/2 cup water
cooking oil

here's how

Rub fish with the seasoning granules/salt.
Fry under medium heat. Drain excess oil, set aside.

On a large pan, saute garlic & onion.
Add the tomatoes and carrots, cook over low heat for about a minute.
Pour the egg, stir continously.
Add the water and some seasoning.
Add the fried tilapia, cover the pan and simmer for a minute.
Flip fish on the other side and cook for another minute.
Serve hot!

A Kare-Kare Dinner with Kate

Last Wednesday, my roomamate Kate & I had dinner at Landmark's Food Center. We tried Barrio Fiesta's Kare-Kare.


Kare-kare is a Philippine stew. It is made from peanut sauce with a variety ofvegetables, stewed oxtail, beef, and occasionally offal or tripe. Meat variants may include goat meat or (rarely) chicken. It is often eaten with bagoong (shrimp paste), sometimes spiced with chili, and sprinkled with calamansi lime juice. Traditionally, any Filipino fiesta (particularly in the Tagalog region) is not complete without kare-kare. In some Filipino-American versions of the dish, oxtail is exclusively used as the meat.


Lechon Kawali

Barrio Fiesta's Kare-Kare Combo
(kare-kare, lechon kawali and plain rice)
Php85.00 or approx. $2
