KANIN Club through the years…


KANIN Club through the years…

“When I count my blessings, I count them twice.”

Kanin Club is an authentic (with a twist) Filipino restaurant which have been delighting their customers (including myself) for the past years. We have been dining at their branch at Paseo de Sta. Rosa (Sta. Rosa, Laguna) because it is my boss’ favorite, she particularly recommends the crispy “dinuguan” (it’s deep-fried pork crisp enough set in a semi-dry stew of pork blood). It is a Filipino staple food and is best with “puto” (rice cake). I personally like it with Puto Binan.

I would have to recommend the “Turon CK”. I have been ordering it through the years and it’s still the same since the last time I tried it last month.

I don’t know why my college besties always make me choose where to dine when we find time to meet up. The two of them will first figure out the location and they’ll let me choose where to dine in that specific location. This time, they decided to meet up at Westgate Center in Alabang. It is a small village where an array of retail shops from dining, leisure, auto, wellness and even sports were lined-up. Even my most favorite restaurant: “Neil’s” is fiercely standing there.

So, I instantly thought of Kanin Club. =)

By the way, “kanin” is a Filipino term for cooked/ steamed rice.

We seldom see each other, maybe just twice or thrice a year, but each time we meet, it’s just love and happiness. And let me add lots of laughter and food too.

Here’s what we had then:

– That famous crispy dinuguan
– Crispy liempo
– Green mango and bagoong (local shrimp paste)
– Bagoong rice
– Kare-kare (It comes in three variants: seafood, ox tripe or pork legs)

We chose pork legs. Mhai doesn’t like the ox tripe. Pam and I okayed all three.

And for our dessert:

– Turon KC

So they were asking how many times do we need to stay in the tread mill just to burn these out? And Pam was saying we all need to indulge sometimes and ended it with: “I’m actually heading to Gold’s later.” Ahahaha!

Because if you look at our spread, they’re all killers!

Flavor enhancers.

It’s not an everyday thing though she said. And I agreed since it was also the same thing that my doctor told me last year. But when I was about to leave her office, she left me with: “Just make sure to always count the fats and calories okay!” with a naughty grin.

All three of us gained a little weight from the previous years and we didn’t mind at all. #sizedoesntmatter

Look at those cheeks! =)

We top it off with this sweet indulgence.

I’ve been meaning to ask what KC stands for. Then, it occurred to me, since this is their original recipe, KC stands for Kanin Club. Lol!

Until our next meet-up.

Kanin Club has branches in the following areas: U.P. Ayala land Techno-hub, Ayala Triangle Gardens, Paseo, Sta. Rosa, Greenfield district and QC.

Try Kanin Club, you’ll love it there. =)

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 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. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. 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. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, 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 and mother, 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 so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, 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!(--,)
