Carmina's Review on Second Branch of Sundays Cafe and Restaurant in Maginhawa, Quezon City

We have friends who love to eat out and have no clue where there are places to dine.  No problem with based on my experience we can refer them to places that are reasonable prices. Carmina had tried Sundays Cafe in the branch located in Marikina. I was informed by the server they will be opening their second location sometime this year. Few days ago, Mom Violy, Carmina and some friends came with us to see the new branch of Sundays Cafe and Restaurant in Maginhawa, Quezon City. There is parking in front of the restaurant.  We walked in and noticed a sign saying it was a soft opening. The place was full yet they we're able to accompany us to our table on the ground floor. Someone working there gave us a tour upstairs where the function rooms to those having a party.  The restroom is unisex the first door has the handicap and two restroom doors for male and female to use.

Cinnamon Raisin Roll from The Baikery

Carmina has always loved eating Cinnamon Raisin Roll ever since she was young. Carmina grew up from California and use to bake with her younger sister. Living in the Philippines with no oven provided in our kitchen we tend to look elsewhere to eat our favorite Cinnamon Raisin Roll. Carmina has tried a variety of Cinnamon Raisin Roll from the past. Yet she has never tried something that is moist, soft and easy to chew. Cinnamon Raisin Roll reminds Carmina from her childhood years that were freshly baked in the oven. Smelling in the whole house the smell of cinnamon and raisin to top off of its frosting on top best served hot and a cup of warm beverage of your choice tea or coffee. Not bad for PHP 45.00 ($0.90) for one Cinnamon Raisin Roll from  The Baikery  Lazada Philippines not including shipping and handling fees.

Ciabatta from The Baikery

  Carmina has been making her own sandwiches at home with ingredients that you have from your own refrigerator. Carmina had purchased her Ciabatta from The Baikery in the Philippines. You can add anything in your ciabatta bread in what you feel in the mood. Carmina only had sliced cheese, ham and mayonnaise no vegetables in stock. It is a simple sandwich anyone can make all you need is a toaster oven to heat the bread for five minutes depending how toasted you want. Carmina prefer it soft and easy to chew to appreciate the texture of her ciabatta. The Baikery sells ciabatta for six pieces for PHP 80.00 ($1.60) seems unreal it is an inexpensive price not including shipping and handling fees. Carmina has always been fond of eating bread something she cannot remove even if it is carbohydrates. To place your order click here at the link given:  The Baikery  Lazada Philippines.

Tilapia with Pechay Recipe

Today Carmina went to the kitchen to see Manang V and see what is cooking for our lunch. Manang V had informed Carmina for the employee she has cooked something different.  Carmina went to get her phone to take a picture of Manang V's new dish that she decided to add soup to our fresh tilapia with Pechay and other ingredients. Carmina was busy talking to Manang V to get the recipe she also was able to take some photos for you to see. Tip: Manang V said she puts ginger to remove the fishy smell from the tilapia it kind of remind me of Tinola how she had cooked it. Only difference there is tomato floating in the soup and the vegetable is different. Tilapia with Petchey Recipe Ingredients: 6 - Pieces Fresh Tilapia (clean and sliced in the middle) 1 - Small piece fresh ginger (peel and slice matchbox size) 4 Tbsp. - Patis (fish sauce) 1 - Bundle Pechay 1 Whole Garlic (chopped) 1 - Onion (chopped) Small amount cooking oil Water Medium Pot Step 1: Add small amount cooking oil in hot pot
