Arroz caldo Ala Papa E

Monday 6 February 2012

One of the things I'm thankful for is that I have a loving husband who loves to cook.  His food makes me less homesick because he tries his best to prepare us good Filipino dishes.  He loves reading blog posts especially foodblogs and would usually give them a go.   And he also takes requests coz he complains that he's running out of ideas. 

And because the temp has plummeted here in the UK, I wanted to eat something simple but warm. So I requested Arroz caldo (Filipino congee).  His version this time has chicken, egg and Chinese fish balls, garnished with spring onion, roasted garlic and a splash of lemon. Y.U.M.M.Y!

Normally when he cooks this, he would also prepare fried tofu and/or spring rolls o lumpiang togue. Yung parang complete order na sa karinderia ni Manang. But on this occasion we didn't, we were worried that it'll be stone cold when it reach the dining table - sayang lang. 

Kayo, what do you love to eat during the cold season?


  1. Arroz Caldo is one of my favorites when it's cold together with Sopas. Yummy! Buti na lang mahilig magluto si Papa E. And I love the twists on his dishes. He will really make a good cook. Tayo na ng restaurant. Hahaha.

    Naalala ako nung sinumpong ako ng GERD, pinakuluang rice with asin lang nakakain ko. Oh my, I don't want that to happen again!

  2. Chicken Arrozcaldo and sopas sis that's what my kids order from nanay..when it comes to food demanding ang kids ko naku po so I should always be ready with my recipes..magandang umaga sis ;)

  3. My dad taught me that recipes. I love arroscaldo my favourite classic Spanish influence cuisine.  He did very well on presenting the food. It looks yummy.  Perfect for this weather. xx

    Hmmm sopas, pag malamig pa rin next weekend (hehe, as if naman iinit na bigla) ito naman irerequest ko kay Papa E.
    Haha, alam mo ba na may friend sya na Restaurant tawag sa bahay namin =) He really loves to cook. He beats himself up kapag feeling nya may kulang or di masarap ang naluto nya. And when we have people coming, di pwede sa kanya na random menu, kaylangan pinagisipan at bagay ang bawat ulam etc. 
    oh no, pinakuluang rice lang, hmmm not nice. Kaya good girl ka ah, & take your meds sis. =)

    Mega saya talaga! The great thing is that he loves doing it. Ako kasi I can cook but think it's a chore. Kung hindi sya marunong at mahilig magluto malamang sandwich lagi ang pagkain namin dito, hehe =)
