It’s my blog’s 9th Anniversary + Denlim’s Kitchen Experience

It’s my blog’s 9th birthday and my gift to all my readers is a new post ūüėČ. I blame Instagram and other social media sites for my neglect of this blog. It’s just so easy to post and write a short caption on Instagram than to do a single blog post that takes me hours. ¬†So please enjoy this post of my recent dinner in Pampanga.

Trip to Hokkaido – JAL and Hotel Gracery Sapporo

Hello my readers!! Sorry I haven’t posted in such a long time. I have an incurable disease called “Tamaditis” (extreme laziness). I have such a long backlog of trips and restaurants I decided to start with my latest trip to Hokkaido and hopefully work backwards.

Le Petit Souffl√© SM Mega Fashion Hall

I’ve eaten at Le Petit Souffle at their first branch at Century City mall but both times it was for dessert. They have a wicked matcha parfait! Now that they’ve open a second branch at SM Mega Fashion Hall I’ll get to eat there more often.

Rambla’s Lunch Menu

It’s been a while since I last posted. I was sick with “tamaditis” (laziness) and my PLDT Fibr connection was down for 12 days! I called multiple times a day and it took posting on Twitter to finally get a technician to my house. It was fixed quickly. It was just getting somebody too check that took ages. Enough of the ranting.

It’s all about CRAB!

It’s easy to throw a dinner party in your home. Just dial the phone and¬†you can order all kinds of food from lechon, bbq, caviar pie, palabok, pasta, desserts¬†for an instant party without doing any work. Now you can add these delicious crabs to your directory of goodies.

Sandra and I have a lot of common friends but I don’t personally know her. Our friend Arlene wanted me to try Sandra’s crabs so I went to her house for lunch. Little did I know my host was a Chinese Martha Stewart. Just look at her plating and even the rice wrapped in banana leaves.

She calls this Chili Coconut Curry Crab but it is so much more than that.

Sandra's Lemongrass Crab-001

The crab was cooked in creamy coconut sauce and it had a little heat and tons of flavor from the abundant garlic, shallots, ginger, lemongrass and whatever secret ingredients in it.

The best part was the extra bowl of sauce she brought out.

You will definitely eat a lot of rice with the crab and sauce. Super delicious!!!

Sandra's Lemongrass Crab-006

While I was still gorging on crab and rice Sandra stood up and said she’ll get dessert. I ¬†thought she would open a box and bring out some pastries. When I turned around there she was in flamb√©ing bananas for the crepe. I just had to ask if she made the ice cream too! So many months later I can still remember the whole meal clearly.

Another crab you must try is from Ley’s Kitchen in Pasig City. Angel Ley is from a foodie family that’s why she cooks so well. Among the food she offers the most popular are her crabs, Garlic Butter and Coco Curry Crab.

Ley's Kitchen - Garlic Crabs and Coco Garlic Crabs.__The_garlic_crab_

I loved both kinds but my favorite was the coconut curry crab. The curry wasn’t very strong just enough to flavor the rich coconut sauce and bring out the sweetness of the crab.

I diligently picked out the crabmeat and ate it with fried rice and lots of coconut gravy. It was heavenly!!

I brought a tray of Garlic Crab to my friend’s house and they all loved it too. It was so buttery and very, very finger licking good from the generous amount of garlic.

I suggest you try Sandra’s and Angel’s crabs. Both are fantastic and will surely shine in your party. Although both have similar coconut based crabs they have a different flavor profile so I suggest you try both so you can decide which is your favorite.

Lo De Alberto An Authentic Taqueria in Manila

I really like Mexican food but I’ve only had the Americanized version. You know the crunchy shell tacos filled with ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese or my favorite nachos piles with cheese sauce and all kinds of goodies. When I read about an authentic taqueria in City Golf Plaza along Julia Vargas in Pasig City I filed it into the “must try” database in my head.
