Malunggay Veggie Pancit Bato

A healthy pancit — noodles, was  served to me, prepared by my sister the other night while I was checking for web hosting sites that offer great services.

I did not know, honestly, how my sister prepared this pancit or even the Malunggay vegetable recipe itself. I just made myself full after she served it in front of me. LOL!

Above is the packaging of the Malunggay Veggie Pancit Bato. This is a locally-made noodle from Bato, Bicol Region. The Veggie Pancit Bato is available in three different vegetable flavors — Malunggay, Carrots and Squash.

Moreover, I was talking earlier about the web hosting that I lurked for. Yes! I was looking for web hosting sites and suffice it to share that I have found one site that gives information in guiding people especially bloggers on how to choose the best web hosting sites for their respective blogs and other websites. The site shares a list of high-quality, tested to be very reliable, affordable and having a good customer service and support center web hosting sites. Reviews made and shared by current users for each web hosting sites are also available as a reference of users.

Grilled Fish Ala Pobre

Yesterday was my classmate and a close friend in medical school’s birthday, Jaymineth. Smiley Even though I wasn’t really feeling good yesterday and haven’t fully recovered yet, in fact, I was still feverish yesterday, I really attended her bashful lunch celebration together with other classmates and friends from medical school.

We dine at Casa Verde Resto located near the Crown Hotel, here in Cebu City. Since I have had hard time to swallow hard foods yet, I just opted to order this softly-cooked grilled fish ala pobre.

As mentioned above, the fish was grilled enough not too hard but really soft. If I wasn’t wrong, it was garnished with oil and added with minced garlic. The fish meat was so tasty – enough to my salty choice of taste.

Unfortunately, when I about to ask the waiter to what specific fish they prepared for me, he refuse to tell and just deny that he didn’t know what the name of the fish was. I just wish to know it because I am thinking of suggesting the grilled fish to be prepared this coming holidays at home. And oh, talking about holidays, I am actually wishing to find cheap holidays package deals or even hotels reservation for the upcoming Christmas party of the BisDak Bloggers in CDO. Hopefully, before the event day, I could find one.

Squash Bread

When I had a chance to have my very quick visit in Bohol — specifically in Antequera, Bohol, at Ate Pinx place, last Nov. 29 – 30, I also had a chance to try the healthy bread, Squash Bread of The Buzzzz restaurant at Island City Mall (ICM), Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

The bread was really palatable even at the first glance. Each slice of the bread served to us were having bits of pieces of sweetened ripe cooked yellow squash and sesame seeds. The slice of bread itself is fluffy and really nutritionally delicious.

Exotic Food: Crocodile Sisig

My birthday celebration on November 24, 2011 has been the most exotic one because of the exotic crocodile foodies that I and my exotic Davao blogger friends have had firstly gulped.

The Crocodile Sisig was so tasty — a perfect mix of sweet and salty mouthful one. At a glance, one couldn’t think of it as a crocs dish. It just did looking like other Sisigs — chicken, pork, fish, do.

This is one of the must-try menus available at Riverwalk Grill in Crocodile Park, Davao City.
