Saba/ Plantain Banana : Ginang-gang

Was browsing MarketMan's site when i came across Grilled Saba Banana. Reminds me of my childhood. But we do it in a different way.
We call it Ginang-gang.

We first peel the saba and thread them on BBQ sticks.
Grill until done (light brown, not too charred).
Brush with lots of margarine (I used Star Margarine) and sprinkle with sugar.
Hay, sarap!

I tried using Anchor butter but margarine tastes better.

Ning's Thai Noodle House

Last month, I had cravings for Thai food. I still do.
Come lunch time, I go to Ning's Thai Noodle House in Los Baños.

Pa-siu, chicken with nuts, pork krapao, poppia.
These are some of their specialties.
Tita Cora and her Ate Mila will cook them personally for you.
You can even watch them cook. Just don't forget to tell them how hot you want
your food: no chili, mild, hot or crying hot!

All time favorite, Pa-siu
(noodles sauteed in garlic and pork w/ peanuts and kangkong)

my favorite, chicken w/ nuts
chicken sauteed in garlic, onions, bell pepper and peanuts

Ning's Thai is located along Lopez Avenue, in front of the old Agrix building.
They are open from 11:00am to 9:00pm (Mondays - Saturdays) and
5:00pm to 10:00pm on Sundays. You can contact Tita Cora +63 919 3599263
