FTF: Shik Do Rak (A Koren Restaurant in downtown L.A.)

>> Friday, September 25, 2009

Hi! Happy Friday! ^_^

I would like to share the pictures I have with my friend Aileen in L.A. California. This is the second time I ate shabu-shabu style and the first time I appreciated the taste of Kim Chi.
Kim Chi is pickled dishes made of vegetables with varied seasonings. Its most common is the spicy baechu (cabbage) variety. Kim Chi is Korea's most common side dish.
Those freshly thawed and thinly cut beef were cooked on hot pans. Side Dish are the Kim Chi and rice wrappers (those white sheets like Molo wrappers). Ubos ang Kim Chi. ^_^
Happy Food Trip Friday!


Ginataang Papaya with Shrimp

>> Thursday, September 24, 2009

Hey friends! We have a new contributor in the house! Yipeee!
I have been too busy these past days and I have not been able to post some updates in my food blog so I asked the helped of my sister-bestfriend Mae, who is also a foodie. Two heads are better than one ika nga. We hope you would enjoy your stay here and be able to get some delectable foodie insights. We hope na mas magutom namen kayu... heee heee! Cheers to her first post here! Thanks sis! ^_^


My father is a native Bicolano. He is truly skilled and great in cooking menu's with 'gata'. And as his daughter, I've tasted countless meals served in it.

Last night, he cooked papaya in gata with shrimp. I'm supposedly controlling my food intake but I failed 'again' last night. boooo. The food was just soooooooo creamy - truly truly fulfilling. I then took my camera and snapped away before it went dead. Then I interviewed my father on how he cooked this.

Coconut Milk - papa just buys grated coconut and he'll be the one to squeeze the milk out of it.
1 kilo of green papaya - sliced
1/2 kilo of shrimp (alternatives: pork, chicken, fish)
garlic and onion
green chili (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions:
  1. In a pan, pour coconut milk. Add chopped garlic and onion. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add shrimp (or any other alternatives)
  3. When shrimp is nearly cooked, add papaya, then chili
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste
  5. Once completely cooked, you may add the rest of your coconut milk for additional creaminess

I realized there are so many food recipes you can make out of 'gata'.
What's your favourite one?
