A Rose Experience

Salmon, Sea Urchin

Here are some images I took from a surprise birthday dinner I’ve been invited to. The restaurant’s name is Rose and they serve Japanese “enhanced with classic French cooking techniques“. The chef had whipped up some simply fascinating combos from his kitchen that night.

I realize that there’s quite a number of folks in my network who’s had their birthday on February, if you happen to be one of them, allow me to greet you a happy birthday!

I loved the salmon rose & the edamame. The green beans amused me so much that I decided to physically pull each seed out of the pods so I could share with you its ‘inside-story’.

And don’t let the dessert fool you, the chocolate flame packed a bold piquant flavor blend that made me want some more. It definitely is a must-try!


A Simple Cheese Omelet

Today’s breakfast was the usual – eggs!

I’ve created an omelet with tiny blocks of cheese before among other ingredients, but haven’t tried grating the cheese before putting it in the pan. So that’s what happened this morning – pretty easy stuff I’d say. Grate the cheese onto the egg, add the right amount of pepper & salt, a pinch of basil leaves, and off to the beating!

Although I found the taste a bit salty for my palate (I must’ve added a pinch too much), I was glad my family liked it. The right salty soft-crunch on the sides with the melted cheese inside providing that final oomph! Oh yeah.

I still had to create the default order for the day though for my youngest — the sunny side up.

Good morning!

Vegetarian Snack

I ordered a Vietnamese baguette while waiting to meet someone in Makati. It’s a vegetarian sandwich they call Banh Mi — it was my first time to taste one and I honestly enjoyed it. It’s supposedly made of veggie ingredients even though it didn’t really taste like vegetables, so that’s a plus.

Later after the meeting, I took on a serving of their vegetarian vanilla ice cream (yes, I’m serious!) which surprisingly also tasted just like any other vanilla flavored ice cream!
