Goldilocks Restaurant, Eagle Rock (Food Review)

Goldilocks is a Filipino restaurant with roots in the Philippines ever since I can remember.  They started out as a bakeshop and it eventually expanded by offering hot food items, equivalent to what you will find at cafes and Chinese tea houses.  In other words, Filipino comfort food.  They then expanded their operations overseas, so Filipinos abroad, particularly in the US, can satisfy their cravings for Filipino food.

Hot Peppermint Mocha

If I can compose a Christmas carol, I will make one out of peppermint mocha.  Afterall, coffee and chocolate are just a few of my favorite things.  

As the song goes, 

"when the dog bites, 
when the bee stings, 
when I'm feeling sad.
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad."

That and a few close friends I can share a homemade peppermint mocha with, will surely make my day.  I'd like to raise my mug to a dear friend of mine who celebrated her birthday recently in Manila.  Ms. L, this is for you.  -GG-

"Jazzed Up" Meatloaf to Go

When stuck with store bought food, I usually do something to it to make it look a little more creative than just having to settle for food straight from a box.  In this case I "jazz it up" to some degree just to give my senses a little bit of a "kick."

Beef Sukiyaki (Japanese hot pot)

Sometimes I'm amazed at just how much comfort one simple dish can bring to me. Tonight's dinner, Sukiyaki, did just that.
