To market, to market

Market = Markt pronounced Mart (German)

The Naschmarkt, Vienna, Austria (Photos taken on July 26,2007, please click to enlarge)

- 2nd district of Vienna near the Karlsplatz station (U4, U2, U1 train lines).

A Fruit stand proudly displays its fresh produce. -Austria's Best wine, so they say.

A meat shop plus more! - Sausages! -not the Vienna sausage in can. =)

My son, picking some fruits. - Ala Tiangge, Asian bags, sarong.

A Philippine Tamaraw coin which costs 40 euros when its originally 200 pesos only, too bad about the photo though, sorry. - My son sitting in front of a nut and seeds shop.

This market is a little far from where we live so I buy lots when I get the time to visit, buy mostly fish here, for sushi. The vegetables are really cheaper than those in the groceries and they'd give you discounts too.

The market also has lots of restaurant from Viennese to Japanese, breads to fishes, really lots to choose from. We frequent the Tokori restaurant were many pinoys are crew.

To market, to market will be showcasing other markets that people who love to cook frequent. Click here to see more.

I suddenly remembered that my very first post here is about a market too. =)


Make your own Crispy Chicken Mix

chicken batter

This mix is for 6 pieces of chicken.

You'll need:

1 cup flour
1 tbsp basil
1 tbsp oregano
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
pinch of salt
dash of pepper

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and have your chicken coated. Be sure that the inside part of chicken (under the skin) already has some salt rubbed into it. Deep fry until golden brown.


Whole Grilled Chicken

With Apples and Potatoes

(Note to self: take a photo right after chicken is out of the oven, so it won't shrink looking like there's nothing in it).

There's a certain flavor of grilled chicken in the Philippines that I miss a lot, that from Andok's...*sigh* And what's worse is that unlike bagoong, it cannot be preserved and sent here as my mom would =P
Here is my version of grilled chicken - plus!

Whole Chicken, well-cleaned
1& 1/2 chicken broth cube
1 tsp oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
2 apples, cut
3 potatoes, julienned

Rub the insides of the chicken with half of the crushed broth cube...

Do the same to the skin with the remaining broth cube, making sure every part gets rubbed well.

Put in a covered container and refrigerate for 8 hours or preferably overnight.

Take the chicken out of the fridge, an hour before cooking. Preheat oven first at 180 (degs) Celsius = 350 (degs) Fahrenheit.
Put chicken in a baking dish or on the top rack of your oven with a dish/aluminum foil just under to contain the oil drippings, brush the surface with a little olive oil.
I prefer it on a baking dish since I like the juice from it. But doing so wouldn't make the other side crispy.

In a small bowl, mix oil, soy sauce, ketchup and oil, brush the chicken with this mixture once in a while. After half hour, turn it over then brush the other side with the mixture.

Then, after 20 minutes turn the chicken again and put in the potatoes and apples in the baking dish even if it was provided for the drippings, the flavor will combine and make for a good sauce.

Let it cook for 10-15 minutes more.


I say fairly that this dish is one that my family can finish in one seating. Charlie like the baked apples the best, while Alexie likes the crispy of Daniel, he has no complains as he is the one who eats just about everything.


The baking of the car cake

This is one baking video that hubby and I watched attentively and enjoyed until the was rather interesting and amusing but I would not dare bake one because just the ingredients cost a fortune. lol. =)
