Veal tripe, lamb hearts, veal liver, lamb kidneys. It's an offalfest!

Cheers! Also, #marcosmagnanakaw. Never forget.

The Power of the Red Dot Brand

Seriously. The same banana. Fits on both the Leica Sofort or the Fujifilm Instax.

Reasonable Horology

Sure it's not Swiss but 1. It's Made in Japan 2. It has an in-house movement. 3. It's cheap. Tempting.

Igorot Kiangan-Maranao French Fusion Dish.

Kiangan because it has lots of chilis. Maranao because of the gata, toasted coconut, tanglad, and turmeric. French because the Maillard reaction was done in Isigny butter and the dish was finished with Breton cream.  

Shrimp Ceviche

Shrimp (deshelled, deveined), Brasilian lime, Indian Onions, Thai chilis, black salt, coriander.

Marinated for 20 minutes.

Essential Readings to Combat Pseudoscience

Kare Kare di Igorot

Roast and grind peanuts. Much work.

Then pound peanuts to a paste. Work those biceps.

Maillard reaction is necessary.

Et voila. Used 2 grams of saffron instead of achuete. Because I can.


Proper martini in Casa La Hipster Shaun is 6 parts gin to 1 parth vermouth. With cherries instead of olives. Because.
