Chicken with Coconut milk, spicy version.

This is a more flavourful version of the Ginataang Manok recipe I posted a while back. Just replace the sweet bell pepper with mild chillis and the snowpeas with 2 lemon grass. Add more ginger too!

Binaki

Here is a snack from my home-province in Northern Mindanao, it is often mistaken as sweet tamales because it is wrapped like tamales. But the Binaki have no filling and is sweeter. It is commonly sold on the streets and in markets but sometimes, lucky villages have roaming binaki vendors shouting at the top of…

Mama’s Kubo restaurant

On a whim, my friend Shalimar (a chef) and I decided to check this previously unknown (to us) Filipino restaurant. I am not picky, but I do appreciate a well-made dish. First impressions on the place: As soon as we went inside, we got the impression of a well thought out space. There’s a touch…

Spiced port and creamy lentils on a plate

Baby back ribs on a plate

Baby Back Ribs

I’ve always loved making “barbecue” baby back ribs, it’s messy and yummy. However I do think that it shouldn’t be called BBQ as it is oven cooked. This recipe is a product of laziness. My excuse is “it was too late to go to the shop to get the exact ingredients” knowing that there is a…
