Recipe - Steak
This is a recipe for just a simple plain steak with some vegetables on the side. Just to let you know, this was the first steak I made all by myself. I have made steaks before, but my mom would always be there to help, so I have to say that the experience was quite nerve-wrecking. Mainly because I didn’t want to overcook the meat. Also, I only used marinade powder for the meat because I...
Recipe - Caramelized Onion
I went to Whole Foods the other day and bought this BIG CHUNK of steak. I had never made my own steak from scratch, so I decided to cut the meat down to three pieces and experiment with them. One of the ways I served the steak was with caramelized onions, so I decided to make a tutorial. Here goes… Caramelized onion is basically yellow onion that is cooked slowly. This type of onion is...
Bubur Kwang Tung, Jakarta
Kwang Tung is located in Jakarta’s chinatown, Glodok. And it has the best bubur (rice porridge) I have ever tasted: I ordered the Seafood Porridge with cakwe (chinese fried fritter dough thing), century eggs, and some soy sauce on the side. Now I really don’t know what makes Bubur Kwang Tung so good, I mean, it looks like regular porridge. But anyone who has tried it would know...
Charlie & Co. Burgers, Sydney
HELLO Okay two things. 1. I haven’t posted anything lately cos I’ve been doing alot of school stuff and my camera ran out of battery and I left the charger in Jakarta, so this is actually from a restaurant I visited almost 6 months ago 2. I don’t have Adobe Photoshop T_T so I can’t edit the pictures using the new watermark. I usually depend on Indita/Patricia to edit my...
The thing about cooking...
… is that people get so intimidated by it. I kind of get it too, especially when it comes to gourmet food or something that requires more effort than just making scrambled eggs, you want to make sure that the result is as good as how much you put into it. For me, as someone who loves food and cooking, I try not to be too scared of experimenting and trying new things. If I think that there...

Recipe - Gourmet Scrambled Eggs
This is a recipe passed on from my dad. We had a scrambled egg competition - I used Gordon Ramsay’s recipe and my dad used… his. And he won. My dad vs. Gordon Ramsay, and my dad won. The judges were my family and a friend, so the competition wasn’t anything official. Whatever. If you want to know which Gordon Ramsay recipe I used, click here. If you want to know my...
New Tasteritos Watermark
I know we’ve been absent lately, BUT we have a valid excuse. We’ve been busy with school work and life in general. But since I’m having my short summer break (short because I’ll be taking two courses in the summer in about a week) I have quite a lot of time to kill, so I’m gonna make a lot of tutorials and reviews. Also, that’s why I posted the last two posts. ...
Kilwin's, Sarasota, Florida
I went to Florida for Easter Break. Which was quite a while ago. Haha sorry. I stayed with my dad’s friend and he sort of treated me like a kid (even though I’m almost 21), because he always brought me to ice cream shops after dinner. My favorite place was Kilwin’s because it has TONS of sweets! It’s not just a random ice cream place that literally just sells ice creams...
Palombo Pastry Shop, Bronx, NY
As only a minority of you know (hence the telling-of-information) my school is in the Bronx. I know it seems really dodgy, especially since most of you probably have not been there (and why should you? It’s the Bronx -_-), but my school’s area is actually pretty okay. We have Little Italy just a few blocks away in a street called Arthur Avenue, and that’s where students usually...

My friends and I were sick of school food and didn’t want to spend on dinner, so we decided to cook. Well, I did – she just ate. This is the recipe for anchovy pasta, which is basic pasta with olive oil and, well, anchovies. Ingredients: - Pasta (I used spaghetti, but angel air would’ve been better) - Anchovies, chopped - Olive oil - Salt - Garlic Steps: - ...
