4th of July BBQ

During the 4th of July for some reason, I always think about BBQ. Maybe it’s because of the weather. It’s the best time to grill some meat and drink your favorite cold beverage. Hangout with your friends and family.

Nilagang Baka

There are many versions of “Nilagang Baka” Filipino Beef Stew with Clear Broth. The traditional version is using bone marrow. I have the healthier version. 😉 I hope you like this video and please don’t forget to give me a “thumbs up” and subscribe. HAPPY WATCHING!  


I have a special treat for you guys. I was able to convince my in-laws to let me share the making of their beloved salteñas with all of you. Because the recipe is highly guarded, I’m not able to show you guys the ingredients. Please don’t forget to subscribe and watch my other Bolivian and … More Salteñas


SHOGUN Japanese Restaurant Teppan Steak, Fine Dining & Sushi This restaurant is located in Temecula.  I enjoyed watching the chef cook and perform at the same time.  He is a bit quiet for me though.  He’s more focused on not to mess up.  He needs to be more engaging with the diners.  I don’t remember … More Shogun

Korean BBQ

I’ve been to so many Korean BBQ and I will never get tired of the meats and the neverending side dishes (banchan).  I just love it!!!  I avoided the rice and just focused on the meats and side dishes.  I just came to realize Korean BBQ will not be fun if you decide to eat by yourself. … More Korean BBQ


Mechado is a braised beef dish originating from the Philippines inspired by culinary methods of Spain, which it was a former colony of. Soy sauce and calamansi fruits are key ingredients to the braising liquid.  


My mother in law taught me how to cook this dish. Of course, I always put my own twist in all of the dishes I cook. By no means this is not a traditional Bolivian dish. This dish is only cooked during Christmas time in Bolivia.  

Beef Sinigang

This is another version of my “Sinigang” with Beef this time. The best wine to pair this dish with is Pinot Blanc. Related articles What Is: Sinigang? (foodisnice.wordpress.com)
