Buttered Garlic Prawn


Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  This Father's Day, I decided to cook buttered garlic prawns.  It's so easy to cook and I don't have to stay in the kitchen that long. Though the preparation is tedious, the meal is awesome.  You can add some chili if you want that added kick but in my case, just a pinch of dried chili will do.  My dad does not like chili and this is his day.

Pata Tim


Pata tim is a popular Filipino-Chinese dish.  The pork hock is braised slowly in soy sauce, garlic, onion, rice wine, star anise and brown sugar to balance the savoriness of the dish.  It's a typical Asian dish, sweet and savory.  Pata tim also includes vegetables like baby bok choy, mushroom and in the Philippines, we add dried banana blossom.
