Recipe #17: FILIPINO CHICKEN CURRY

So, today is a special day because I’m giving you another personal favorite — Filipino Chicken Curry.

I like my Chicken Curry hot and spicy because I think that’s how curry dishes are supposed to be. But then again, some people prefer it mild, so it really depends on how much heat your taste buds can take. If you don’t want it too fiery, especially if you are serving it to kids, take it easy on the curry powder and the chilies. Of course, you may ought to scrap the chilies altogether.

Additionally, I prefer the ginger grated because it produces better flavor once incorporated with the rest of the ingredients. I also like adding the bell peppers on the last part because I want to retain its crunch.

There! Enough of the chitchat. Here’s the recipe for Chicken Curry:

The Chocolate Kiss Cafe

One of my favorite restaurants. I’m pretty sure all the students of UP Diliman know this little nook at the Bahay ng Alumni — The Chocolate Kiss.

I went to UP Diliman last Saturday after my graveyard shift supposedly to run some errands on my enrollment in Open University. But I found myself craving for something sweet instead. The Chocolate Kiss offers classic cake assortments: from Carrot Cake to Blueberry Cheesecake to Chocolate Brownies.

I first ordered their Iced Tea. Their iced tea is not sweet. It comes with a “honey” in a small container which you may add to your drink depending on your preferred sweetness.


Since it was already lunch time, I ordered my main course: Pesto Penne Pasta with Chicken Fillet (or strips). I am very particular when it comes to pesto sauces because some restaurants’ are bland. But this one I give a thumbs up.


And finally of course, one of my favorites — Devil’s Cake. A moist chocolate cake with chocolate filling and a mountful of melted marshmallow as an icing on top. Pure heaven. I almost ate everything all up before I took the picture below.
