Om Indian Kitchen at The Grove by Rockwell

When my husband was still working in Ortigas, my boy and I would usually wait for him to leave the office so we could have dinner on our way home. The Grove by Rockwell is along our route and, back then, Sunrise Buckets was the only resto that we found appealing. I’m just glad that there are now so many dining options at The Grove and Om Indian Kitchen is the latest we’ve tried.

From what I gathered, Om Indian Kitchen is owned by the family of Magic 89.9 Radio Jock, Sam YG. Actually, his mom was busy in the kitchen while we were there.

Hong Kong Food Tripping Day 1 – Temple Street Foodie Finds

We spent my husband’s birthday weekend in Hong Kong. I knew that we were arriving late in the day so the only lakwatsa that we can do once we arrive is the Temple Street Night Market.  As the name suggests, Temple Street Night Market is known as the liveliest night market in Hong Kong. In fact, when we got there, there was a group of foreign street dancers performing which added to the festive vibe. But since it was already 8PM when we reached Temple St., our first mission was to find a place to eat.

Ralph was in-charge of researching for our food options in Hong Kong and he told us that Spicy Crabs are really the thing here. All of us love seafood, crabs especially, so we decided that we’ll have Spicy Crabs for the night.

Benefits Of Eating Seafood

If you have ever been to the beach or been to the meat department of your local grocery store, then you have probably smelled fresh seafood. There are often packages of fish and shrimp that have been caught off the coast nearby or that have been caught and shipped to the store. Restaurants and stores located along the coast see the best choices when it comes to seafood as workers will go out on boats in the early morning hours to catch what they can before selling it to customers. You can also find fresh seafood online. There are several health benefits of eating seafood, but you need to make sure you’re not allergic to certain kinds as it can make you very sick.

Seafood contains many of the important nutrients that you might not get in the daily diet...
