Food Trip Friday # 48 Dine out at Max’s

While my in laws are still on a vacation, they want to try Filipino food whenever they have a chance to dine out. We chose Max’s for our food trip last Monday. We ordered different food in their menu, and Max’s chicken for the main dish.

For our dessert, we had Buko Pandan but I forgot to take a picture.  Now, I am craving for it.   We left the table empty and went home with full tummy.

Food Trip Friday #47: Chopsuey

When I saw fresh veggies in supermarket the other day, I picked all the ingredients for chopsuey and cook this for dinner.

Here is my recipe.

1/4 giniling
1/4 chicken liver
1 large onion (chopped)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pc carrots sliced
1/4 cauliflower
4 pieces young corn
4 pieces sliced of broccoli
2 stalks celery chopped into 1″ long
10 pcs string beans (cut into 1.5″
2 pcs bell pepper
1 cup meat broth
1 tbsp cornstarch
fish sauce
oyster sauce
2 tbsp oil

Saute garlic, onion. Add fried and cooked giniling (instead of giniling, I used barbeque pork meat). Add chicken liver. Saute for two minutes and pour fish sauce. After three minutes, add meat or chicken broth. Let it boil, add all vegetables. When half cooked, add cornstarch and oyster sauce to thicken the sauce. Remember not to overcooked the vegetables. Serve hot or toppings to rice.

You can also add quail eggs and shrimp instead of meat.

Food Trip Friday #46: Lumpia & Nilaga

Lumpiang Shanghai or Spring Roll is cooked filled with ground pork or beef, minced onion, carrots, and spices with beaten egg wrapped together with Lumpia wrapper. In my recipe, I always include celery to enhance the taste. Lumpia is best served with sweet and sour sauce. Lumpia has been our favorite meal on weekends. I find it so dry with only Lumpia in my meal so I always include nilaga as our soup.
