Filipino Dinner at Essex Crescent ♥ ♥ ♥

I always love dinners at Auntie Juliet’s.


There is something about dining at the Chua home, the relaxed and unpretentious setting, with people who love and take good care of each other genuinely and without condition, that reminds me of dining in my own home.

I love dinners at Auntie Juliet’s.

Especially when it’s Filipino food we’re having.

IMG_6378Fish head sinigang (minus the soup) – another classic Filipino soup dish which uses tamarind as base, giving the broth a sour flavor that is very hard to resist

IMG_6380Chicken and pork adobo – dubbed the Philippine national dish, adobo is made by slowly cooking chicken or pork in soy sauce, vinegar, crushed garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns. Perfect with rice!
