Dulcelin Gourmet- Mango Torte

Dulcelin - Mango Torte
Dulcelin – Mango Torte

I was in Patient’s First in Glorietta waiting for my doctor when I suddenly had this crave for sweets (well I always do)

I walked around the food choices then I suddenly remembered that the best mango torte maker has a stall in the area, so I looked for it and made sure to get one.

Mango Torte is a layer of Mango, Cream and has a Nougat base, And as I tasted it their mango torte was definitely the best I ever tasted… so far…

Lechon Paksiw – Liempo left over

Another left over food make over, we had roasted liempo (pork belly) last night and there was more than enough for the two of us. This morning it’s already a day since it was cooked the meat gets quite dry and chewy , I have to do a make over to make the eating experience enjoyable.

Lechon Paksiw is commonly cooked if there is Lechon (Roast) leftovers usually from occasions like fiesta. You can also use lechon kawali (Pan-Fried) leftovers.

Paksiw is a local filipino dish where food is cooked with vinegar, garlic and onion. The Lechon Paksiw adds Lechon sauce or gravy that makes it more special than the usual paksiw.

So instead of reheating the Lechon (which just makes the meat dry) Filipinos transform it to a lechon paksiw which makes it more flavorful and enjoyable.
