Who is craving for Burgers and fries?   Hopefully you're into something new to eat at Smash It: Burger & More in Marikina Heights.  I had ordered it through Grab Food application on my phone.  The following orders were as followed: Double BBQ Bacon Smash Burger requested for no sauce and vegetables for PHP 207.20 with Curly Fries PHP 169.00 plus a Red Iced tea PHP 49.00 total of PHP 425.20 ($7.59). Double Caramelized Smash Burger for PHP 249.00 with French Fries with Homemade Ketchup PHP 99.00 total of PHP 348.00 ($6.21). I had ordered myself the Buffalo Chicken Poppers for PHP 189.00 ($3.38) the serving was big. I couldn't quite finish it very spicy even if it says mild on the label on the box. I used my ranch dressing to minimize the heat coming from my mouth. I wanted to try their Apple Cinnamon Tart for two pieces for PHP 129.00 ($2.30) the apple cinnamon tart wasn't sweet something good to add vanilla ice-cream if you wanted too.

Filipino Kamote Que Recipe

Kamote que is one of my favorite merienda that we cook in our home and each day this is a common food that Filipinos love to eat. Kamote is known as a sweet potato. Kamote que is brown sugar coated on the kamote that has been fried up. This is a common street food you will see when you walk around outside that has three pieces on a barbecue stick. Homemade Kamote Cue Recipe: Ingredients: 4 Pieces Kamote (sweet potato) - sliced 2 Cup - Brown Sugar Cooking Oil Bamboo Stick Cooking Instructions: In a pan you will add enough cooking oil and heat it up once it starts to boil add the brown sugar until it turns brown. Add the kamote fry for 10 minutes and flip both sides to be cooked once the sugar has stuck on the kamote remove the kamote. Add three pieces on the kamote slices in a bamboo stick. My favorite is adding cinnamon powder on my kamote cue to add more flavor this is optional.

Homemade French Fries Recipe

We love eating French fries and when you have potatoes in your home and you are craving for something to snack on I would make time to make my own that will almost taste like in any other fast food restaurant the only difference it is the healthy way. You have two choices to peel the potato or to keep the skin it all depends on your preference. Homemade French Fries Ingredients: 1 Kilo - Potato Salt Cooking Oil Preparing: Clean the potato  Cut each potato long way in half, cut 1/2 inch slices to make it look like matchsticks. Method before Frying the Potato: Soak in a bowl with salt let it sit inside for 5 minutes this prevention that the potato doesn't stick to each other when you fry it. The starch on the potato will be removed rinse it well in cold water and strain. Dry potato on a rack Frying: Heat up the oil in a pot Cook the fries Strain it You can add flavoring to your French fries you can refer to my Flavored Fries for the recipe and instructions how to do it.
