Hello Manila! The GOppets are back! <3 Pleasantly surprised with all the changes the Duterte administration has initiated. Ano pa ba ang mga nagbabagang balita? Kwentuhan nyo naman ako. Missed a lot of action & news, will try to catch up this weekend -if I can keep my eyes open, that is. Major jet lag, the struggle is real. :P

You still have until tomorrow, SUNDAY to partake of the Indian food fest! \m/ Thank you Hyatt City of Dreams Manila for always making your buffets exciting! :-*
I love chinese food. Sure, it’s not on top of my food chain but it’s one of my sources of comfort food. If you have been following me on Instagram, you’d know that Kap fed me 30 days worth of chinese food STRAIGHT during our trip abroad. Yes. 30 days straight! :| Feel ko tuloy sa China kami nagpunta, hindi sa Europe! So much that even the thought of eating fly lice & sweet and sour pork any time soon would make me lose it na, I swear.
For a change (and to keep my cool -coz happy wife happy life, right?), Kap & I had a welcome-back-to-manila lunch date at one of our favorite buffet places in town, The CafeHyatt City of Dreams Manila, which was incidentally celebrating Indian Food Festival right in time of our arrival. Yaaaay! <3 Rain or shine, may sakit o wala, nothing can stop me from Road to Gurgaon! ;)
One day to go before the Road to Gurgaon Indian food festival at The Cafe Hyatt City of Dreams Manila ends. Don’t miss it! <3 For reservations call 691 1234 local 1162, or book online HERE.
Gurgaon is a city in the Indian state of Haryana located immediately south of the National Capital Territory of Delhi. As of 2011 Gurgaon had a population of 876,824. Witnessing rapid urbanization, Gurgaon has become a leading financial and industrial hub with the third highest per capita income in India.
I love Indian food. No, it’s also not on top of my food chain, but it’s something I really enjoy now & then to break the monotony of my regular bowring meals. Indian food has so many integrated spices that each mouthful just bursts with flavors. And that’s what I love about it. The richness & essence in each bite. Yum! :)
After 30 days of Chinese food abroad, and like President Duterte’s slogan -CHANGE IS COMING (lol), Indian food for my lunch date with my Kap, woohoo! Mapapadami ang kain ko! Pero hulaan nyo naman ano kinain ni Kap? PEKING DUCK! Chinese pa rin hahaha! GI talaga itong date ko. :P
Indian food presents a range of flavors, both intense and subtle. There are many spices that are often used in Indian cooking. Some of these spices are chili pepper, black mustard seed, cumin or jeer, turmeric or halide, fenugreek or methyl, asafetida or hang, ginger or dark and garlic or lass an. Another popular component is spice mixes, gram macula in particular. Gram Macula is a powder that often combines spices such as cardamom, cinnamon and clove.
South India focuses on rice as the centerpiece of meals. Common ingredients are curry leaves, coconuts and coconut oil. They are also known for a pea and vegetable stew called samba and a soup made of tamarind or tomato called ream.
Tandoori chicken consists of roasted chicken prepared with yogurt and spices. The name comes from the type of cylindrical clay oven, a tandoor, in which the dish is traditionally prepared.
North Indian cuisine is distinctive by the high dairy content in its dishes. Their dishes often include milk, yoghurt, an unpaged acid-set farmer cheese called pander and a clarified butter called ghee. Some popular North Indian dishes are samaras, which is a triangular pastry filled with spices and vegetables. Another one is Pandora Chicken, which uses yoghurt and bandore macula.
Meanwhile, the eastern region of India is known for sweets and desserts. My happy place, most probably, if I were living in India!
If you will notice, I skipped my usual starter Japanese platter & skipped right on to Indian food. That’s how excited I really was with the food fest! \m/
I wanted to indulge in more Naan bread with all the yummy & various curries available, but the cheeseses called out to me huhu. Cheese I simply could not resist. Tada! My fruit & cheese platter.
After that heavy meal, there was only room for dessert. Oh yes, umepekto ang pagtitipid ni Kap sa Europe. My stomach shrunk, trololol! :P Gotta stretch it again for future buffet spreads hehe.
Anyway, I hope you’re not sick & tired of tales of our European adventures (mostly misadventures). We may have returned, but there’s still 19 days of stories to tell. We’ll start again on Monday. ;)
For now, go book a table at The Cafe Hyatt City of Dreams Manila. It’s something you wouldn’t wanna miss. Go! Go! Gooooooo! :-*
