Smash It: Burger & More in Marikina Heights

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.

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
