Breakfast food for lunch..

Two weekends ago, I was determined to cook lunch. But my cooking skills (or lack thereof) are limited to learning to master the art of frying, frying and frying. Haha. So here's what I decided to, fry..



So basically, that's everything I needed plus EVOO and cooked rice (to mix with the garlic and crunchy garlic).

What to do:

1. Fry fry fry the bangus tocino
 2. Make garlic rice
(or do what I do most of the time, sprinkle the crunchy garlic on cooked rice because I love the strong flavor and the crunch)

3. Deep fry the tofu (2-3 minutes) then strain excess oil by placing the fried tofu on kitchen towel tissue (like so on so). 

4. Leave a teaspoonful of the oil you deep fried the tofu with, combine with 2 spoonfuls of the garlic oyster sauce and heat it.

5. Combine the tofu and the heated garlic oyster sauce

Finished products:
Semi-burnt bangus tocino. Told you I'm still mastering the techniques of frying. Hehehe. But most pieces weren't burnt and I must say, the bangus tocino was DE-LI-CIOUS!
Bite-sized tofu. Crunchy outside, soft yet firm inside.
The Verdict:

I finished the tofu bits all by myself. But we weren't able to finish the whole pack of tocino so there were leftovers for dinner.

All I can say is that I'm enjoying experimenting how to cook. My wish, however, is to learn as soon as possible so I won't waste food ;)


  1. Congratulations on your successful attempt! I'm at the attempting stage, too, haha and I can't even fry to save my life.

  2. Thank you thank you! I almost gave up because the oil kept on popping and splattering! Haha.

    We shall conquer frying! ;)

  3. aww you'll learn eventually don't worry... i started with burnt food too hahaha :D i have to try that bangus tocino!
