Tagaytay Food Adventure- Part 1

A few weeks ago, me and the gang of Pambansang Almusal, went on a food adventure in Tagaytay City. Tagaytay is always a perfect getaway for it’s only an hour and a half drive from the city. It has so much to offer aside from its cool breeze and beautiful scenery. The restaurants and the food there make the people come back.

Our first stop was at the Loumar’s Cafe. As soon as you enter the restaurant, you’ll get to have a feel of the classic Tagaytay. This place offers great food all day. Want to try the classic tapsilog (beef, fried rice and fried egg) and bulalo (beef soup)? They’ve got it alongside with various pasalubong items that’s perfect to bring home with you. The best that they offer is their Buko tart! It was just so heavenly! Too bad I wasn’t able to take a photo of it ’cause we were all too excited to try it! It was so good!

Next stop, The Silver Bucket Seafood Dining! This restaurant is located at the newly opened Twin Lakes by Mega World in Tagaytay City. If you still do not know, I am all about seafood! Crazy over them! And chef Francis of the Silver Bucket just made sure that every seafood lovers will have the best dining experience here!

 

I loved how they serve their seafood-on a silver bucket! It was a little spicy with a hint of sweetness in it but just enough to boost the flavor of the seafood. It was so good!  
 

This is their version of the shrimp cocktail. It has a little bit of a kick in it. Just enough to still taste the shrimp. If you’re a sucker for shrimp and chilli, then you gotta have this one for appetizer. 

 

Their paella is TDF! Please give them time as they cook this to perfection. It’s serving size is good for sharing.   

Not only they serve good food, they also serve very delicious and refreshing signature drinks! My favorite is their apple juice, it’s so refreshing and just perfect thirst quencher after munching on some seafood!

I’ll definitely come back and visit this restaurant again and I’ll make sure to bring the family. This is such a perfect place to enjoy with the them. ❤️

That wraps up the first part of our Tagaytay food adventure. I’ll keep you guys posted for the second one! It’s gonna be mouth watering!

GROUND PORK FIESTA

People are so busy nowadays and cooking at home has now been a luxury compared to dining out or buying take out food. I have realized this now that I have a new job, and still doing all the house chores. I am currently working on different recipes with fast prep time since hubby told me that he misses my cooking. That is actually the saddest thing he has told me. Anyway, here’s one recipe I have come across with and incorporated a little bit of Kath’s kitchen magic…Ground Pork Fiesta!

Here are the things you’ll need to prepare:
  
Canola oil, Ground pork, garlic, Red onions, Bok choy, Mixed vegetables (readily available from your local grocery store), Light soy sauce, Salt, Pepper,Sugar (optional), Tomato sauce, Sriracha sauce 
First, you’ll need to sautée the chopped garlic and onions.  

When the garlic turns light brown, add your mixed vegetables.   

Throw in your ground pork and season it with salt and pepper.   

When your pork is almost cooked, add in a little light soy sauce for added flavor. My favorite is still Lee Kum Kee’s. Stir it.   

Add a your tomato sauce. Stir it. Add a little sugar if you want to.   

Then for a little kick, put in the sriracha sauce. I am a huge sriracha fan that is why I’m putting a lot in my dish. But when you have kids around, you might wanna set aside a portion for them before adding your sriracha sauce. 😊  

Lastly, throw in your chopped bok choy and turn your stove off. It easily gets cook and you don’t want them overly done.   

My favorite part is plating the dish.

I’m always trying to pair my dishes with fresh cucumbers for its health benefits. You’ll love it, it’s so refreshing. If you’re wondering what those green stuff on top of my white rice are, well they’re just shredded dried seaweeds. Ground Pork Fiesta is so easy to do and I’m sure you’re gonna love it! 😉
