Ginataang Rimas

Tingin pa lang, masarap na! Maniniwala ka bang gawa lang eto sa apat na common na sangkap lang?
Gata ng niyog, “masamit dameg”, asin at bunga ng rimas gawa ang masarap na pagkaing eto. Papainitin muna sa isangkaserola ang gata ng niyog at isunod ilagay ang ini-slice na bunga ng rimas. Palambutin ng bahagya at tsaka ilagay ang maliit na slice ng masamit dameg (yun ung inilalagay sa ibabaw ng biko) para magkaroon ng tamis na lasa. Lagyan ng konting asin para may balance. Konting minute lang ay luto na ang ginataang rimas at pwede ng i-serve.

Martes, kasagsagan ng walang humpay na buhos ng ulan. Walang pasok ang lahat. Masarap kumain ng kumain habang nakikinig ng balita. Naisipan ni lola na magluto nito. Sarap na sarap kami dahil malinamnam na, nakakabusog pa. Matagal ding hindi ako nakatikim ng gating rimas kaya ubos. Minsan gumagawa si lola ng ganito at inilalako sa barangay.
May unique sa pagkaing ito. Parang may lasang langka at bunga ng kamoteng kahoy. Meron itong aroma na sinamahan pa ng gata ng niyog at tamis ng masamit dameg, kaya perfect blend.

Ang rimas ay typical at common na makikita sa aming probinsya, ang Pangasinan. Pwedeng pwede itong tumubo kahit saan. Ang bunga nito ay hawig sa kamansi at langka ngunit walang spikes o tusok. Ganyan ka-unique ang rimas. Inilalako din ang mga bunga nito sa mga palengke. Pwede din itong isama sa gulay at pwedeng ulamin.

Isa lamang ito sa pagkaing Pangasinan na simple lang ngunit ubod ng sarap. Madaling lutuin, masustansya at nakakabusog pa. Try niyo na!

Summer is over and rainy season is already the each day’s mood. We are all aware na masarap kumain when these days come. And I admit that I love to eat a lot kapag maulan. Ang usual foods na kinakain natin ay hot noodles, soup, coffee + pandesal and milk. But I have something new to share with you and maybe some of you already tried this, the SPECIAL BUTTERED TOAST of ConsuelojTrinidad Bakeshop and Salad House.

 This Special Buttered Toast has a unique taste compared to the common toasted bread. It has a cinnamon taste that makes it more out of the ordinary. Very crunchy and hindi ganon matigas. This one is really perfect for black coffee and hot milk every morning. I love to dip it to my black coffee to make it more delicious.  Masarap din kapartner ng mga soup. Especially nowadays na maulan at malamig every morning here in Pangasinan. And sometimes the rain flows all day, at masarap kumain ng kumain. Special Buttered Toast is truly something to try.

ConsuelojTrinidad Bakeshop and Salad House is located at Alvear East Poblacion Lingayen, Pangasinan. Just in front of the Provincial Capitol Complex and beside the Hotel Consuelo.
Nanlalamig at ginugutom this rainy season? If you’re near to the place, visit the Bakeshop and Salad House and grab some Special Buttered Toast and for sure, di ka magsisisi. There are more bread varieties and pastries to choose with.  Try some…

Dark Chocolate RSCC, a MUST TRY!

Dark Chocolate RSCC
When I saw this one, it’s really a mouth watering thing. The presentation tells the taste itself. It is very classy.  What's more when you take a sip of this one?
     “Wow! Perfect blend!”—these are the words that came out when I tasted the Dark Chocolate RSCC. I’m sure you are thinking or asking yourself what is RSCC? I don’t know the meaning of this one too. And then I found out that RSCC is the abbreviation for Rock Salt and Cream Cheese. And yes, the drink has a salty twist. It adds unique taste to the usual dark chocolate drink. We always describe dark chocolate as “bitter-sweet” chocolate, but this one with a blend of rock salt and cream cheese, the taste and flavor is very smooth, hindi nakakasawa!. Yeah, I love this one. I really enjoyed my every sip of it. Great taste talaga!..Ubos at bawing bawi ang pag-stay.
Other flavors
Other varieties of Yummy Drinks
    There are lots of varieties to choose from. Aside from chocolate and coffee flavor, there are made of fruits like strawberry, banana and other fruits.   

     So what are you waiting for? It is a must try! It is not expensive, I swear. Very affordable price at P85. Visit Yellow Tree Café, located at 2nd floor City De Luxe, Tapuac District, Dagupan City. I can’t wait to have it again. Mr. Tan, you’re the man!
