Nathaniel's Lasagna is goooooood!!

Last year, I saw an IG post of Jin of a lasagna that she ordered.  My MIL and BIL asked me to order a pasta dish for our New Year's Eve dinner,  and I asked them if they wanted lasagna.   I was so glad they said yes because I really wanted to try Nathaniel's lasagna.

The transaction was very easy.  I sent him a text message and called him right after and that was that.  I asked him first if he could still accommodate my order since it was kind of last minute, I ordered it just before Christmas.  He said yes, and I was so relieved!  Had he said no, I would need to look for another home cook!  Hahha..

So on December 31 - I drove to his place in New Manila and it was Nathaniel himself that handed me my tray of lasagna.  I put it in the passenger side of the car and the aroma was pure torture!  It smelled soooooooo good!  I really had to control myself - no joke.  I kept taking peeks and opening the foil cover.  You would laugh when you saw me that day.

This is what the lasagna looked it.  This was the only decent image I got to take because we ate them FAST!



I really liked his lasagna because it was really meaty, meaning I could taste the chunks of meat and mushroom.  I felt that the meat wasn't scrimped.  It had just the right amount of layers and bechamel sauce (that's what they call it right?).  I loved it instantly with my first bite and honestly, it changed my appreciation of lasagna.  It wasn't dry at all.

I made sure to save myself a portion as leftover.  So I can enjoy it again!  Hahaha.. I kept it in an airtight container and ate it a week after the new year - it still tasted the same.  It may have tasted even better as I remembered it.

To be honest, it was quite pricey - but with the first bite, I understood why it cost P1,800.00 a tray (good for 10pax).  The quality of the meat is good, very flavorful and packed!  And you know me, I wouldn't mind paying as long as it's good food - and this one is really good!  And I think it was worth every penny.  If you like lasagnas - you must try this!!

Thank you Nathaniel for taking my order and for making this really really really good lasagna.  I'm sure to order again!!

Mercato Centrale at BGC

 I first learned of Mercato Central from the tweets of RJ Ledesma and Anton Diaz.  I honestly, did not know what it was about.  When I read a tweet about it, that it was a weekend market that was open from 7am until 4pm, I was curious!  I immediately told my Panget about it, and he said that he wanted to drop by and see what it was. Later that night, I saw in the news that Mercato Centrale was air-conditioned!  Waaaaay cool!!  I mean, I've been to a couple of weekend markets and when I start walking through the stalls, I'd be perspiring like crazy!  I knew to always bring a fan with me, but it wasn't enough. Last Saturday night, my Panget told me that he'll think about going to Mercato Centrale the next day.  But before he could tell me, I fell asleep already.  I actually woke up early the next day, but since I didn't get any signal from my Panget that he wanted to visit Mercato - I thought to myself 'you can go back to sleep'.  But after a while, I hea

Osaka Diaries: Revisiting Ichiran Ramen

We fell in love with Ichiran Ramen when we visited Tokyo last year .  And since learning that we would be going to Osaka - I made sure to know where Ichiran was in Osaka.  It was going to be a sure restaurant to eat at, no matter what.  It was along the Dotonbori River - I looked at the map online and saw that it was fairly in the same area as our hotel, Fraser Residences.  I informed my Panget that it might be a long walk - but we knew that wherever it was - we had to dine there again. And two Tuesdays ago - it happened.  It rained the whole day that Tuesday - and I was telling myself that getting to Ichiran was quite impossible.  But when I asked my Panget and my friend Selene - well, they both said to go ahead with the plan.   Bahala na! So we walked it - while it was drizzling.  Imagine a good 15 minute walk to the Dotonbori River.  It was no joke.  We had to cross three (3) major roads to get to Dotonbori River.  The kids, Kailee and Alleya were dressed in raincoats, sitting p
