The Singing Cooks and Waiters

The Singing Cooks And Waiters restaurant is a good place to dine in Pasay especially when you are touring foreign friends or balikbayans around. This is a good, entertaining spot to bring them to. The cooks sing and dance as they prepare your food while the waiting staff sing and dance as you feast on their food! 

The Singing Cooks and Waiters do create a happy atmosphere for everyone. You can even request them to sing your favorite songs! You guests will definitely be amazed at how good the vocals are.

Clockwise:  Ginataaang Sitaw at Kalabasa, Pinakbet, Lumpiang Jalapeno, Seafood sa Gata 

Ginataaag Sitaw at Kalabasa (P 360) is Butternut Squash and Yard Long Beans in Coconut Milk. Flavorful coconut milk mixed in with flavors of this simple but delicious dish never fails to hit the spot!

Pinakbet (P 360) is a medley of vegetables sauteed in bagoong shrimp paste.

Lumpiang Jalapeno (P 280) is a spicy starter dish made of Jalapeno Poppers. It is bigger than the Dynamite Spring Rolls I got used to but it was crunchy and hot like I want it. The fierce burning sensation it gives is just how the dish really adopted its name. You can eat it as is or stick it into your favorite dipping sauce.

Seafood sa Gata (P 650) is simmered squid, crab, mussels, clams, shrimps, catfish and river spinach in coconut cream. This dish is similar to Ginataaag Sitaw at Kalabasa made even special with a symphony of seafood flavors cooked in bamboo.

Kalderetang Baka (P 510) is my favorite dish of all time! Their take on this tender braised meat was really delicious.  I highly recommend that you give this dish a try.

Chicken Tinupig (P 560) is chicken marinated in coconut's milk, wrapped in banana leaves and then cooked over the grill. I so love how they cooked this sweet, smoky chicken giving it that much latik flavor boost right down to its core! I helped myself to second servings without even touching the side sauce that comes with it.

Coco Loco Frost (P 140) is a cold, sweet dessert made with coconut strips, tapioca pearls, nata de coco and pandan jelly. It is topped with vanila ice cream and stick-o.

Suman sa Latik at Mangga (P 230) is one good way of enjoying the traditional Filipino rice cake (made from glutinous rice). This delicacy has a generous serving of latik sauce (sugar and coconut milk mix) topped with generous mangoes slices. I am used to eating suman with plain latik (residue left from simmering coconut cream) plus sugar, sweetened grated coconut (bukayo) and ripe mango on the side. This take on suman makes it an even extra special treat!

Overall, The Singing Cooks and Waiters satisfies my yearning for happy times with family over good, home-grown food the elders used to prepare for us. It was nostalgia really.

So if you and your family are up for entertainment or simply craving for lutong bahay food this weekend, do visit The Singing Cooks and Waiters.

Mother’s Best sponsored the Cook Academy Asian Fusion Festival at Our Lady of Fatima University in Novaliches, Quezon City yesterday. This cooking competition and seminar, done in collaboration with COOK Magazine, was well supported by the studentry, particularly those from the College of Hospitality and Institutional Management (CHIM).

Mother’s Best intends to invest in these type of activities as the our future lies in the youth. Mother’s Best believes in what the young generation is capable of. “It is important to work with them and build the relationship with them while they are young,” says explains Gabriel A.

The college boasts of comprehensive programs in all related disciplines, and Mr. Reynaldo H. Carandang Jr., program head of CHIM agrees that participation by culinary students hones their skills and creativity and brings them great excitement as well: “Student’s exposure to various culinary contests allows them to enhance their confidence and be more competent in their field of expertise. They are also made abreast of culinary trends and innovations. The exposure provides an opportunity for them to interact with industry practitioners providing them tips and advice in getting first hand information from the experts.”

COOK Magazine’s Editor In Chief, Chef Dino Datu along with Chef Winston Jerome C. Luna, Caterer and Event Specialist, shared their culinary expertise by demonstrating their own version of Asian Fusion Dishes as well as giving students valuable tips and advice about the industry.

The student chefs were grouped into five teams, with two students per team, and they cooked with Mother’s Best Hot Sauce, Mother’s Best Oyster Sauce, and the Mother’s Best Barbecue Marinade, which are the items the company is most known for. “For now we want to focus on our core products, since we want to build on and strengthen the loyalty, acceptance and the market for these items,” Gabby emphasizes. “But of course we would still want others to try our new products and we are continuously developing new ones to provide instant kitchen solutions for our cooks and chefs.”

Limitless launches on the RTL CBS Asia Entertainment this September 23

The highly-anticipated TV series in the US this fall, premieres on RTL CBS Entertainment HD on September 23.

Limitless is the new drama series based on the feature film with the same title four years ago. It is a reworking of the Bradley Cooper (Silver Lining’s Playbook) movie about a burned-out writer who accidentally took the drug NZT. According to the movie, human beings only use a fraction of their brain at a time, and the idea that people can, via a fast biochemical fix, access all the brain’s powers raises many fascinating possibilities. Thus, NZT allow man to gain extraordinary cognitive abilities that allow him to change his life.

Limitless is an action-drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman ) who gains brain-boosting special powers of the mysterious drug NZT. He is then coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.

Fuelled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal’s worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.

Working closely with Brian in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidant. They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen “Naz” Pouran, a canny manipulator of the reins of power.

Unbeknownst to the FBI, Finch also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Bradley Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT, who has plans of his own for his new protégé. Academy Award nominee, Bradley Cooper is the executive producer of the upcoming US sci-fi thriller series. He is also reprising his role of Senator Edward Mora, which he played in the movie.

LIMITLESS is executive produced by Craig Sweeny, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Marc Webb, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman.

Produced by CBS Television Studios in association with K/O Paper Products and Relativity Television, the series is internationally distributed by CBS Studios International.
