4-Piece Shrimp Platter

I seldom eat shrimps and other crustaceans because I always suffer hypersensitivity every time I eat any from them. But if I crave, a tablet or two of an anti-histamine are never forgotten to take before I got a bite of the really mouth-watering shrimp platter.

Moreover, I am very thankful for the hospital canteen staff for preparing this 4-piece shrimp platter. We really had a sumptuous lunch. Though I really experienced swelling of the lips and itchiness over my arms after consuming 2 shrimps because I totally forgot to take anti-histamines before our lunch and because I didn’t anticipate to have this bunch of lunch that time. But the signs didn’t worsen. After I took 2 medicines, the itchiness and swelling subsided then.

Nonetheless, the lunch we had was really gastronomic plus the momentous laughs and chats we had.

30-day Food Challenge

Baked Scallops

Since I moved here in my new “dwelling place”, I already missed eating buffet meals in any hotels. One reason is that, I am not familiar with the place I am in now and I am also afraid to lure the city by myself alone. So basically, I have no other kitchen and tables to eat at but only fast food chains.

This morning, when I was browsing over my files, I intentionally look back at those gluttonous eats I had before especially in Cebu City. Telling you guys, Cebu City is top among thee, should I say, “foodie places” I ever been to. One of the foods I missed from there are baked scallops.

Would you like to know where I usually had a plate of baked scallops in Cebu City? Oh noh!, never mind asking because I am pretty sure you might be amazed. LOL! Well, I am a very big fan of buffet meals, as I have mentioned earlier. I’ve been to different food stops and hotels in Cebu City where buffet meals are offered.

Isn’t that baked scallops really delightful?

Seafood Mixed in Malunggay Canton

One Thursday noon, I and my classmate, Ernhez, had a time to dine out in Savory Restaurant. We’re actually getting very hungry that time and since when we check and found out Savory has no crowding people there, we just opt to have had a seat there.

Healthy foods, undoubtedly, are what each of us are always wanting to gulp. Upon looking at the menu of the said restaurant, Malunggay Canton is looking yummy, healthy and very delicious. With no hesitations, we immediately ordered one serving for the two of us.

My classmate is not picky in terms of foodies for as long as it’s looking clean and well-prepared. But me, I honestly share, I am very choosy and much moody in all of my food tastes even at home. This actually one reason why my classmate just allow me to choose any food that was good tasting and inviting in my eyes.

Actually, for the two of us, it was the very first time to see a Malunggay Canton. The canton strips itself are looking so weird, though. It’s not the usually yellowish whitish color hues of any cantons but a greenish brownish with dark green dots on it. According to one of the restaurant’s crews, the greenish blackish dots are some parts of the pounded Malunggay leaves to powdery texture.

Nonetheless, the canton was really really mouth-watering.

Happy Healthy and Yummy Sunday everyone!

Otan

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I have hard time thinking of any “O” words from the local dialect. Good enough that my classmate and also a housemate reminded me earlier about our Otan dishes last Sunday during my love’s birthday surprise dinner. Smiley

Otan means Gulay or Vegie dishes in Cebuano or Visaya. So here’s some Otan for you guys!
