The Classics you can’t go wrong with, Meat and Potatoes

A- Classic American Foods:

1. Classic American Rib Eye Steak, Sirloin Steaks– what is American meal if not STEAK and POTATOS? Yeah, we are far from the source of American Beef Rib Eye Steaks but I found a place to get it. A tad bit expensive due to export tax of course but Rib Eyes are my Favorite steaks!

2. Hamburgers- DON’T go anywhere for hamburgers. You might get soy fillers instead. We serve 100% American Beef hamburgers, or Australian or New Zealand beef. And it will never be spiked with soy fillers like what most chains do, even recognized American brand fast food chains. That’s too bad!

3. Sea Foods- you’ve come to the right place for this treat! Watch the fishermen in action for our Catch of the Day offering. Within 20 minutes of a catch, it could be on your table.

These guys are my construction crew. I pull them out of work to do this when there is a school (of fish) that comes close to shore.
We enjoy this part very much. The thrill of catching our own food. You could join in!

**”Wild Catch” means any sea produce harvested from its natural habitat, as opposed to ‘Farm-raised.’
Yellowfin tuna, swordfish, crabs, shrimps, more, all Dolphin-free net catch only. Excellent freshness, chemical-free wild catch.

B- Pasta: Italian Pasta bought in the USA shipped to the Resort 😉

Shown below:
Cheese Ravioli with Lobster and Mushrooms

1. Chicken Pasta with White Sauce- this is hubby’s fave. He requests this at least once a week. Now, that’s liking it!

2. Pasta with Red Sea Food Sauce- many variations on this excellent tasting and healthy-for-you standout dish. This is one of my faves!


THE ADVENTUROUS! Spicy pepper hot goes a long way

C- Mexican:
When I stay longer in the Philippines I miss this type of food. It is not quiet known in the Island so I’ll introduce it.

Eddie Rene Gracia’s Chili Verde

1. Chili Verde- if you’ve not had this dish you don’t know Mexican food. Slow-cooked in beer sauce, served with Refried Beans and Mexican Rice. My friend is an expert in cooking this one!

2. Seafood Tacos- fish or shrimps served on corn or flour tortillas with finely shredded green cabbage and tomato salsa.

3. Bean Burritos- either with meat or without, shredded cabbage, salsa
and of course cheese. Yumm…


The WILD EXOTIC stuff you don’t know you’d love

D- Asian/ Filipino Dishes:

In this section I said “dishes” because most of Filipino foods are a mixture of a lot of ingredients. Each “dish” maybe eaten as a stand-alone meal. Look at these examples and maybe you’re familiar with some:

1. Pancit- rice vermicelli flavored with pork or chicken slices for taste, snow peas, green beans, Swiss chard or Chinese cabbage all sautéed with garlic and onions.
**Meal all by itself.
Pictured below.

2. Lumpia Shanghai- sounds Chinese but Filipino cooking is a mix of a lot of Asian regional spices and ways of cooking. Enjoy. I love this one.

3. Pancit Canton- egg noodle with sliced meat and veges, much like #1. The only difference is that the egg noodles are fatter and more doughy-textured.

4. Sinigang- or Filipino soup stew. This dish is mainly made of pork, but beef can be used. Boiled, throw in lots of fresh veges like chinese cabbage, string beans, green peppers, daikon, tomatoes. Seasoned with a sour tasting tamarind, a fruit/vege.

5. Tinola- a chicken stew cooked with green papaya, pepper leaf, seasoned with ginger. Very popular dish for ease of cooking. Very light soup stock, excellent for go-with starter for your meal.

6. Seafoods- Yellow fin tuna, swordfish, tanigue, sea bass, cod.

Get cooking’ and come on over. There’s so much waiting for you.
