I don’t know if you’re like me who barely know CHOWDER.
It’s NOT that thick and creamy soup with yummy seafoods that’s best served on a bread bowl but this :
I grew up on Popeye, Smurfs and Thundercats and am currently lost with my son’s numerous favorite cartoons; one of them is Chowder from Cartoon Network.
Imagine how Gabby became so excited when last Friday afternoon, we chanced upon watching its free mascot show in TriNoma before we hit the grocery shelves in Landmark.
Tina and I were amazed how Gabby knew almost all the antics of the show. I guess what draws him to Chowder other than its being colorful is its theme of cooking. The show we saw involved Chowder and friends to cook a dish called Froggy Apple Crumple Thumpkin; whatever that means! So much for half an hour of kiddie fun.
Then undecided of where and what to eat, we went to TriNoma’s foodcourt and had different choices.
My wife enjoyed an affordable but satisfying meal from Le Ching Tea House : Chicken Mushroom Rice Toppings and HK style Asado Siopao + ‘the essential,’ chili sauce. You might think that my wife eats like a carpenter but she shared her food with Gabby and me. Yum!
Then my kid and I tried one of Tina’s favorites, Mongolian barbecue!
Our bundle of joy who dreams of becoming of a chef someday really enjoyed getting all the ingredients from the spread as I guide him what to put on our bowl.
Rice, vermicelli, julienned carrots, Chinese cabbage, onions, garlic, julienned turnips, red and green bell peppers, leeks, cubes of tofu and a personal choice of all-squid meat (there are also strips of chicken, pork, beef, squid balls to choose from) plus its sauce made our Mongolian barbecue bowl; all in for PhP 160.
There are directions on the spread on how to seasoned the bowl. I wanted it SWEET and SPICY :
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 2 scoops Teriyaki sauce
- 1 scoop Mongolian sauce
- 1 scoop Szechuan sauce
- 1 scoop Lemon water
- 1/2 scoop Garlic water
- 1/2 scoop Sesame oil
- 1/4 scoop Soy sauce
- -recipe from Mongolian Rice Bowl, Foodcourt, TriNoma, Quezon City.
