Quarantine Feast

27 Comments
Being in lock down down for 2 months made me try new things that I didn't purposely thought I will do. One of those many things that I did out of boredom (but turned out to be funn!) is COOKING! Ahhh, for the love of food, I know all things are possible!! I've been addicted in cooking and almost all the meals prepared at home were done by me. I'm no expert and the only time that I learned cooking real foods was during this quarantine. I know you're already judging me (I'm judging myself too! Haha!) but for 23 years I've never cooked anything in our house other than sunny side up, rice and boiled egg. Quarantine made me a little crafty and so I tried cooking, but it also made me hungrier that I decided to order some foods that are beyond my cooking skill. Sharing with you some of the foods from my Quarantine Feast that happened at home and outside home before the start official lock down. Let us all drool together!  

Pasta Carbonara is for sure my specialty. I've cooked carbonara twice this quarantine and I'm happy that my family, my boyfriend and my neighbors loved it! I just followed my tita's recipe and learned cooking it through phone call with her instructions.  
L: Beef Tapa and Honey Garlic Chicken, R: Chocnut Ganache Pancake
Kanto Freestyle Breakfast was a food haven that I discovered during my late stay in Taft. I always pass by that restau but I never come in because of the amount of people waiting outside and inside. When I knew that they serve 24/7 I decided to try the hype before I went back to Batangas. I didn't expected to find myself indulging in two consecutive meals before I bid goodbye to Taft. Their foods could be a little pricey but they were all delicious!!
Chicken Cordon Bleu
I've seen this everywhere in facebook and everytime I pass by it I can't help but drool and share it. When I knew that Pau and I's fave restau operates and delivers foods during the quarantine I didn't hesitated and listed down my orders from them. This is one of the foods that I ordered. Octadix never failed me. :)
Aside from Chicken Cordon Bleu I also got Cheesy Embutido from Octadix. It speaks up for its cheesiness. My family and I loved it!!
L: Chocolate Moist Cake, R: Choco balls in Caramel Dip
Pau and I still got to see each other during quarantine whenever he ran errands like grocery and stuff. He came once in our house and brought me my sweet cravings still from Octadix. I couldn't be happier & kilig when I tasted these 2. The choco moist cake didn't even lasted for 3 days. It was so yummy! I also loved the choco balls (I think it's brownies) dipped in my favorite flavor, caramel!! I highly recommend these 2 if you want to satisfy your sweet cravings! :)
Classic Beef Burger
Even if I didn't made the patty I still made the burger anyway! Haha! I decided to make a burger during my brother's birthday instead of buying some. I ordered the burger patties from Burger St. and I'm satisfied because it's beefyyy and it really smells good. The toppings that I included here were ketchup, mayo, lettuce, cheese, tomato and onion. After eating a whole burger I felt again the fullness that I've been missing for so long. I'm so satisfied! :)
L: Cheesedog Bread Rolls, R: Chicken Afritada by yours truly
My cheesedog bread rolls were inspired by a random recipe from facebook. It was made out of boredom but I'm happy that it turned out fine. It's just basically a rolled cheese strips and hotdog in a loaf bread dipped in milk, egg and bread crumbs. Fry it after and it's good to go! :) Chicken Afritada, on the other hand, is the dish that my family always requests me to cook for dinner. I'm not really fond of eating it unlike adobo but when I got to cook it for several times I already learned to love it. 
Mom's Quarantine Birthday Celeb by yours truly
My mom celebrated her birthday on Day 2 of lock down and it was where my love for cooking started. I decided to take in charge of the cooking and I cooked the usual foods that can be seen on a birthday setup. It was my first time to cook Spaghetti and I'm proud that it tasted really good. Super pinoy style! I also cooked Adobong Baboy (it was the first filipino dish that I learned to cook), fried some breaded chicken wings (we couldn't miss it!!) and some french fries
L: California Tempura Maki from Tokyo-Tokyo, R: Liempo by me
I used to eat Ramen, Cheesy Beef Donburi and Chicken Karage whenever dine in Tokyo-Tokyo. When the mall was still up during the first week of GCQ we ate at Tokyo-Tokyo (Pau and I's go to restau) and had still all those foods mentioned but with an additional California Tempura Maki in our order. I didn't know that it tasted that good!! I know now what I'm gonna pick first when this ECQ is over!!! Last from the list is my family's all time favorite liempo. I cooked it thrice this ECQ. The first one was a fail because it was too salty (the marinating procedure that I followed was too much!!) but the second and third were just delicious and satisfying! I have my liempo cut orders delivered again and would cook a mouth watering liempo dish for the fam and for my man.

xoxo,

  4. Oh yum! it's great you are making the most of home isolation and learning a new skill! I have been doing a lot of baking but haven't tried too many new meal dishes, sticking with the old favourites instead, when i could find the groceries! :)

    Hope that you have had a good weekend! We had a picnic on Saturday taking advantage of the relaxed restrictions, and then had a lovely Mother's Day :)
