LUK FOO… Not just your ordinary Cantonese restaurant…

Luk Foo…

I never thought my son and his dad will agree with me when I brought them to this Cantonese restaurant just a few blocks away from the office.

Knowing them, these two are pasta and pizza addicts. Since we are all famished then, we opted going to the nearest at that time. Originally, we planned to go to Shangri-la mall, see a movie and dine after.

They were debating whether they’re getting their carbo over load either from S&R or Project pie (Create your own pizza). Then, I showed them Luk foo. As we were entering their glass door, I was bragging that we normally do our meetings here and that the food is scrumptious and most importantly it isn’t heavy on the budget.

Not your ordinary Cantonese kitchen..

As our son is browsing on the menu, he was appalled with something that is really quite costly, like P3,000 something per serving and his dad just told him “Oh, that’s Abalone, don’t get it if you don’t want your mom to be wearing these guys’ aprons!” And the three of us and the attendants were all laughing!

Here’s what we’ve got:

For a starter, we’ve had the taro puff. It’s crispy on the outside while the inside is soft and meaty.

Yummy! =)

It’s funny to be getting this, because I had the same the other night, had it for lunch that same day, and I don’t really mind!

We had the epic hakaw too..

lf ribs in strwberry
Spare ribs in strawberry sauce…

According to our son – Echo, the ribs are “TDF”! And he was right, I don’t like strawberries that much, while this one was gutsy to me at first, then realized, it stole the show, and tasted heavenly. Instead of my usual more than 1 cup of rice, I had two then. Burp! Those that were served a few minutes ago were gone in a blink! Ehehe!

Honestly, it was only at that time when I learned, that strawberry can be used as a sauce in viands too. The usual that I know of that we use in our households are pineapple, apple sauce, orange sauce. But not strawberry. This is really unexpected but it made the difference! =) You have to try it to believe! (–,)

I’m so happy to be back to this place with my family! I could not find nice words to convey having them around here in our area. It is like a rendezvous for foodies like us.

Echo wanted to come back already.


I have something else to share, this date was complete when my boss and soul buddy came over to meet these two men. It is her first time to meet my ex while my son, knew her all his life and been looking forward to see her! He even found a tricky way to have a picture with her. Ahaha! Calling it a night, we also bought some artisanal donuts from Scarsdale to bring home too.

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
