CAMARON REBOSADO (Filipino Battered Prawns)




Kulinarya’s theme for the month of September 2010 is SPANISH INSPIRED FILIPINO DISHES.



Camaron Rebosado (Filipino Battered Prawns) are prawns that’s unshelled with tails on and are marinated with calamansi juice and salt.  They are then coated in batter and deep fried till crispy.  It is served with Sweet and Sour Sauce, thanks to the Chinese influence in Filipino Cuisine.  In Spanish they call their Battered Prawns as Gambas Rebozadas and the batter includes saffron powder or dye.  As you can see, Filipinos made this dish unique by adding the twist of the citrus/salt marinade before coating the prawns with the batter mixture.

I was lured by the Japanese Macarons - SUNNYBANK

Looks can be deceiving...© BUSOG! SARAP! 2010

Every time the TRIBE goes to Sunnybank for our usual Asian food fix lately, I often notice this newly opened Japanese Eatery, with it’s TV monitors featured wall on the side.  So intrigue that I dragged the TRIBE one weekday night, to check it out instead of going straight to Little Hongkong.  The food that they served were displayed in front of the shop, mind you it was not those plastic models…they were plated real food with name tags and prices.  You have to select your dishes and drinks, right there and then..and pay for it before you can get to sit on your assigned table.  Cusinera felt a bit pressured and just pointed out left and right on the menu displayed on the counter without thinking.  Before I know it, the bill came to around AUD$80+, a bit pricey on a small eatery.  I was so rushed and disoriented that I even forgot to ask for my receipt, they didn’t offer to give me one anyway.  It was not a busy night, I felt that they were just eager for us to pay and sit down for the meals.
