Quarantine Surprises … into Season’s Eatings \m/

The past months I’ve been away from this page (Not intentionally =b), a handful other fantastic munchables found their way to my address, to me, to my gob, and then to my belly. *contented sighs

Pretty much, these are food items that could turn a regular day into a holiday (I would know, I did get a huge sense of satisfaction and happiness receiving these, so I’m so grateful to Blak ‘n’ Wyte, Gani and Ringo, LJ/Food and Grocery on Wheels, Luscious Tarts, and also Cha Tien for giving this foodie something to look forward to on a given day.  It most surely breaks the monotony of our days on house arrest. Who knew, extended taumbahay moves can lead to forgetting what day it is. *heehaha I digress.)

These dishes/delectable treats can also make Season’s Eatings (What, already?!?) even more special. (The meme about 2020 being summed up as January, February, quarantine, December is so apt.)

So here we go, quarantine surprises that could be the perfect addition to your Christmas and New Year spreads.

1.) Blak ‘n’ Wyte

While the cafe is already open for dine in these days, complete with new normal protocols in place, they also do deliveries, just in case you’re still unsure or just you find being out and about cumbersome. Aside from the dishes that they can cook up, they also have grub from other places available at the Kay Lines Drop and Pick counterpart of the resto. =D

It was at picking up an order in February of this (what will be a) bizarre year for us all that I first got to try Blak n Wyte’s black pasta. I was tickled pink to see it was delivered together with scrumptious creamcheese puffs. You read that right, not just cream puffs, but cream cheeeeese puffs.

Seafood black pasta. I’m using our ‘dine in’ photo in Feb because I miss food properly plated. =) Black on black, just to emphasize that unique pasta color.

The puffs are fruity in that one box has three different flavors: Mango, strawberry (No, that’s not asado *hihi), and blueberry. Just the proper amount of fruit ripple in there to keep it from being cloying. I’m lovin’ that fine streusel topping on the pastry ball too.

2.) Gani and Ringo’s Crispy Pata atbp.

Need I say more?

Just looking at the photos, and watching the ASMR type vid below, I already want to place another order. Aren’t you tempted?

Crispy crunch meatsies, just a message away.

3.) LJ’s Pasalubong Center

Interesting to think that I’ve tasted more specialties from other provinces and regions in this time of COVID-19 when it’s quite the feat to move around, than I ever have in previous years when traveling was easy peasy. That’s thanks in large part to shops like LJ’s Pasalubong Center/Food and Grocery on Wheels who bring these edibles into the city for us.

Pampanga’s Hannah Marielle’s Bakes & Cakes – pionono/mini cake rolls and yemaroons.

LJ’s is the official exclusive distributor of Hannah Marielle’s products. But more than soft and spongy mini cake rolls, saccharine bites that are yemaroons … and yema cookies, the selection is extensive: Momilo Mio cheese pie (Might look like an uncut cheese bar but it’s not; it’s better), Vjandep pastel, Merzci napoleones, Conti’s mango bravo cake, Big Al’s decadent choco cake, etc. (“,)

4.) Luscious Tarts

I never really got to into the Portuguese egg tarts fad when it first came into being from shops like Lord Stow’s. Apparently, they’ve made a comeback. If there was one positive outcome from this pandemic, it’s that it brought out the spunk in people … For home bakers, this time, they went beyond baking for their loved ones and as a result, we have stuff like this, homemade pasteis de nata from Luscious Tarts, we can say is one of Baguio’s very own.

Portuguese egg tarts – savory and sweet varieties ^^,

Top to bottom, from the shiny burnt glaze of the smooth custard to the delicate flaky micro crisp puff pastry crust, it’s perfection. =] Not feeling a sugared flavor for egg tarts, Luscious Tarts also has a savory version, with bacon .

    • XiNE says :

      Apir, Mario! I really am giddy to place an order again because Gani and Ringo’s crispy meatsies are just so good! (Tried crispy pata a few weeks back but I still want more.) According to the menu on their FB page, crispy pata hock isP240, regular crispy pata is P330, premium version is P430, crispy ulo is P440, and crispy chicken is P230. I hope at least one fits your budget so you have something super fab for Season’s Eatings.

      Fingers crossed, we succesfully defeat Covid soon. Till then, stay safe, take care! (“,)
