Before watching the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 1, I was treated to a very nice meal in Tokyo Café. It was our first time to dine in this restaurant, and all I could say is two thumbs up.
What is Tokyo Café? This is based from their website:
So on to our experience:
This is Jollibee’s version of their Chicken and Mushroom pasta. It’s actually spaghetti with sweet and spicy tomato sauce. Not sure how this would fair for kids, but as for me, it was a good eat.
The sauce as mentioned was a bit spicy (just a bit), plus the sweetness made the whole Jollibee experience unique. It was unlike their other menu so it was totally a different taste.
On our way to Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife, we stopped by Rustan’s Gateway to look for something to eat. Yes, we were dead hungry but we wanted to go cheap. So we opted for a whole chicken from Chooks to Go for less than Php 200 and I was very impressed with their Pepper Roasted Chicken (I love black pepper), plus the gravy was superb!
We ordered Rice in a Box to go with our chicken and it was a very hearty meal!
If you wish to try their chicken varieties, you can head over their website to check out their different products and store locations at http://web.chookstogo.com.ph/
A post of this week’s:
I made this for my airsoft buds and I’m glad they liked it! It was actually my first time and I must say, it was quite a success!
I didn’t actually know how to make this and was not able to consult the almighty web before I even went to the groceries. As I arrived the chicken station, I just picked out my favorite chicken part which was thigh and good thing they had thigh fillets readily available. I got some oranges as well and a big bottle of orange juice (now it wouldn’t be “orange” chicken without oranges now would it? ;)) also got some packed chicken breadings too. Anyways, let me start the recipe:
This is my own version of orange chicken, and measurement can be adjusted according to your taste. :)
• Half kilo chicken thigh fillet cut into cubes
• 2 pcs. big oranges
• 1 L of Tropicana orange juice
• Ginger sliced in strips
• 2 pcs. sliced red onion
• 4 cloves sliced garlic
• 2 pcs. eggs
1. Segment the oranges and save the juice. If you are not sure what “segmenting an orange” is, you can watch it here:
2. Mix the orange segments, half bottle of orange juice, ginger, onion, and garlic, and marinate the chicken. I left mine overnight.
3. After the marination, take the chicken pieces out but do not throw the marinade.
4. Heat oil (just enough to fry the chicken cubes). Beat eggs in a bowl. In a separate bowl, place the breading. Now your ready to fry those chicken up! :) Dip chicken pieces on to the egg then to the breading then fry until golden brown.
5. Using the same pan, pour most of the oil out until a very thin layer of oil is left (we’ll use the same pan to make the sauce, we don’t want to waste those tasty oil away. ;))
6. Pour in the marinade and add in the other half of the orange juice. Wait until it boils. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
7. Mix a tablespoon of flour with water. Pour over the sauce and mix until thickens.
8. Lastly, mix in the fried chicken cubes and then serve with rice!
Yep! It’s an on-going project as I’m typing, the chicken fillet is being marinated right now in the refrigerator and I’m going to cook this tomorrow for the family and my airsoft buds! So stay tuned for the recipe. :)
It’s actually my first time to try cooking this, and I really do hope that it would turn out good! *fingers crossed*
