Okay, okay, okay ...
It’s been a hectic two weeks and I haven’t posted anything
I have just been overwhelmed by work
My mind would totally blank out whenever I tried to face my laptop to start an effort to post anything in the evening …
I would snore myself into dreamland before creative juices could push me to come up with something to write

But finally …
Workload has tapered off
Everything is back to normal
Slept the whole day
Woke up ready to eat a good dinner …

Dress down
No big crowds
Just a quiet Sunday dinner

Cookbook Kitchen is an old reliable that has been around for a couple of years
It remains an interesting find for the first-timer and is a great re-visit for the return patron
Located in a small side-street of Mandaluyong (off Shaw Blvd.) - Cookbook Kitchen is a house converted into a cozy hidden nook of surprisingly good cuisine
Laid out with touches of a European home cantina, the ambiance is very laid back and casual

Their “star” has always been the Parmesan Crusted Whitefish …
This is worth the effort of making the multiple right and left turns to find this hidden gem of a place …

We also tried the Pork Steak with Honey Mustard Sauce which is cooked with light soy, rosemary and spices. Then there was the USA Kielbasa Sausage which was crunchylicious.

Easy dining.
Reasonable prices
Quaint and cozy

It’s worth a try.
