Tamarind Juice

My friends and I experimented with Tamarind Juice yesterday.  It was really very hot so a  tall glass of a refreshing drink was most welcome.

Tamarind Juice

1 C. Tamarind pods.

(We used the Tamarind pods Celine brought from San Pablo.  I suppose the secret is to use sweet tamarind.)
2 C. boiling water
1 C. brown sugar
2 C. ice
1-2 C. cold water

Soak the tamarind pods in boiling water for 10-20 minutes.  Strain the mixture and add brown sugar.  Pour in a pitcher half-filled with ice.  Dilute with water.  Serve really cold.

Ahhhhhh sooooooo good!!!!  Maybe if you garnish with a sprig of mint it would be perfect?

We had it with our lunch, Sinigang na Bangus sa Miso. 

I instructed Hermie to follow the directions at the back of the Knorr Sinigang sa Miso pack.  I bought my fish from Rustans Rockwell and it tasted so clean and fresh.  I get frustrated sometimes when the it tastes like mud.

The day before, Jing and I had lunch at Ukkokei Ramen Ron along Pasay Road.

I ordered the Miso Ramen with Butter and Corn.

Jing had the set meal with Miso Ramen.

I forgot what the other items were. 

Jing said the ramen was too much for one person, she said we should have split in one serving.  I told her, maybe if it was merienda I could but not for lunch.

At least, I was able to satisfy my ramen obsession.  I do not think I will eat a bowl in a long while.  I am all ramened out!
