Tiramisu at Nueve Cafe

It was a rainy Thursday night, but I have to meet a good friend at Wilcon City Center along Visayas Avenue for personal reasons. After walking in an ankle-deep flood just outside our subdivision and having dinner, I was lucky to get a free ride from my sister going to Visayas Avenue. My friend was already waiting for me at Nueve Cafe which was located at the ground floor of the mini mall. 
The only customer that night was my friend who was still clad in her corporate office wear so I joked her saying, "how's the restaurant business going?". The restaurant looked elegant so the food there must be quite expensive. 
She was having pasta for dinner and since I already had dinner, I decided to order desert. I checked out their cake and goodies selection tray to find what would fancy my sweet tooth. 
The Tiramisu caught my attention since that  is one of my favorite desserts so I ordered that. It is worth P125 which is same price as most cake slices in restaurants.
I was expecting the Tiramisu to be soft with a bitter sweet taste in it. It should melt in my mouth, but it did not. It was a bit tough like an ordinary cheesecake so that  was  quite a disappointment. But if you are a desert lover like me, then that would be enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.

After a nice heart-to-heart talk, I t0ld my friend that the Tiramisu was not that good and she told me that I should have ordered their Chocolate Cake. She said it was really good and that was her daughter's favorite. Well she should have suggested that earlier right? LOL. Anyways, as we left the restaurant I saw the sign on top saying Croc Cuisine. Hmmm...that got me quite curious. I would definitely want to go back there and try their crocodile-meat dishes aside from the Chocolate Cake that my friend was bragging to me.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce

Since Beef are more expensive than Pork, I end up buying Pork Steak rather than Beef Steak for lunch. I am going to share this easy recipe that both kids and adults would love called "Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce". There are two ways of preparing this dish: 
First: You can bread the pork steak, fry it and then cook the sauce separately before smothering them on the fried pork steak. 
Second: I chose this version because my kid have a hard time chewing meat so I need to make sure that the pork is really tender. Here is my simple recipe: 

Ingredients: 
1/2 kilo of Pork Steak (marinated in calamansi, soy sauce and pepper)
2 large onions (sliced thinly)
Instant Gravy (dissolved in water)
Pork drippings from the boiled pork
1 tablespoon butter

Procedure:

1. Add 1 cup of water on the marinated Pork Steak, then boil it for approximately 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Make sure to check it from time to time to avoid the meat from getting dried up. Add water if needed.

2. Remo…
