COOKING FOR MY QUEEN WITH LEE KUM KEE


         May is a very special month for my wife, Rina, because not only is it her birth month,
but it’s Mother’s Day as well. She takes her role as a mother incredibly seriously, and I can safely say
that she is the best mother I could have asked for my daughter to have. Given all that she does for me
and our daughter, I thought of perhaps preparing something nice for her for dinner.

      Since I usually spring for dinner at a restaurant, I thought it would be more meaningful if I prepared
something for her myself! I asked her sister for some tips of the simple dishes that Rina loves, and she
suggested one of her favorite fish dishes, Steamed Tilapia in Oyster Sauce.

Given that I had just come from the grocery and had some of the necessary Lee Kum Kee ingredients
in my pantry, I thought to myself, “Challenge Accepted”!

BONCHON'S NEW KOREAN BBQ BIBIMBOWL!


           From its K-Dramas, to its music and now its food, the Philippines has been quite captivated with Korean Culture for quite some time now. I must admit, I myself am a fan of Korean Food, and with the explosion of Samgyupsal restaurants around Metro Manila, I often find myself craving a meal comprised of those delectable slices of Pork Belly.

                As I was walking around the mall with my family, I chanced upon Bonchon – which has been one of my go-to restaurants when I’m looking for a dependable, delicious meal, that is affordable. Given that Bonchon is always finding ways to innovate their lineup of dishes, it came to no surprise to me that there was a new item on their menu.. The Samguyupsal-Inspired Korean BBQ Bibimbowl!

                Naturally, I had to stop by to give it a try!
