RECIPE: TKG's Vietnamese Fish Cakes or Cha Ca Quy Nhon

One of the food that I missed eating when we went to Ho Chi Minh was Cha Ca Quy Nhon or Vietnamese Fish Cakes. And because I've been craving for it and I am not really sure if the Vietnamese restaurants here in Manila has it on their menu, I decided to recreate some in my kitchen. I did tweak the recipe a bit and used canned tuna instead of fish fillets. This recipe of Vietnamese Fish Cake or Cha Ca Quy Nhon is very easy to do.


Kenny Roger's Introduces Chicken Garlic Butter Roast

It was such a fun event to do a blindfold taste test of Kenny Roger's Chicken Garlic Butter Roast. Media guests were ask to sit down, blindfold themselves and made to wait on what's going to happen next.

Aptly called Kenny Roger's Awesome Sensessions, the lost of sight while blindfolded heightens the other senses like hearing and sense of smell. During the entire time that we are blindfolded, the voice of Solenn Heussaff-Bolzico was heard, guiding, teasing, and really making sure that we get excited of what's about to happen.

Say Hello to Jollibee's Garlic and Cheese Fries

I'm a creature of habit and I tend to order the same food over and over again until I get tired of it, but eventually repeat the cycle all over again with a new food favorite. So it is not surprising that I only got to taste Jollibee's Garlic and Cheese Fries recently.

Ho Chi Minh's Famous Banh Mi Huynh Hoa

I wouldn't have tasted Banh Mi Huyn Hoa had it not been for my friend who sneaked out while I was having my usual afternoon nap. She did her homework and had a list of food + resto that she wanted to try. I, on the other hand, had a list of places to see in Ho Chi Minh.
