It’s a challenge to juggle homemaking, being a hands-on mom and being a blogger. More often than not, something’s gotta give and for me it’s my being a homemaker. I love cooking and I like preparing dishes for my family but since I prioritize taking care of my kids and blogging, I always end up preparing easy dishes that have become my kids’ favorite. Sometimes I miss preparing dishes that I grew up with–good home-cooked ones that always reminds me why I love cooking in the first place. Thankfully, my fellow co-parent is very passionate in the kitchen & has decided to finally accept orders for her delicious dishes.
Her namesake brand Rang’s offers a variety of home-cooked dishes that are not only delicious but affordable as well. Instead of preparing in the kitchen, you get to save time and effort by ordering from Rang’s. The quality of the dishes is excellent & with every bite it reminds you of the good ol’ home-cooked meal. Lavett!
The week of Mother’s Day I got to try three of Rang’s specialty dishes: Crab fat spaghettini with garlic prawns, Kare-kare, and Roasted garlic herb chicken
Crab fat spaghettini with garlic prawns, good for 8-10, Php 2,200
One of Rang’s best seller is the crab fat (aka aligue sauce) spaghettini with garlic prawns. It’s a favorite of her family and has become my family’s favorite as well. My kids love pasta and this is one dish that they’ve added to their list. It has just the right amount of crab fat sauce smothered on al dente pasta that made us do second serving. Imagine one tray is good for 8-10 people but our small family of four managed to finish it for two meals?
I’m not a pasta person but this one is something I truly enjoyed. Pair it with garlic bread and a glass of Coke and you’re good!
Kare-kare, good for 8-10, Php 2,400
Kare-Kara is oxtail stew in peanut sauce. It takes so much time and effort to prepare this dish. I know because growing up I’ve helped my mom prepare this. You need to make sure the oxtail, tripe and beef are tender enough before you actually stew them in peanut sauce. Aaah the peanut sauce–it’s what makes this dish come together and preparing freshly made peanut sauce is another story. Since I got married, I haven’t prepared Kare-kare for my family simply because it’s an effort to do so.
Tasting Rang’s Kare-kare reminded me of the time when I used to prepare it with my mom. Home-cooked and so good! The meat is tender and the veggies had a bit of crunch to it. I shared this with my parents-in-law and they too enjoyed it as much as we did. Even the bagoong (shrimp paste) is good. Extra rice please!
Roasted garlic herb chicken, good for 6-8, Php 1,900
My family & I are chicken lovers. I know roasting a chicken can be challenging–one must need to get the temperature right and keep the flavor sealed. Most of the roast chicken we’ve tried in restaurants are either dry or lacking flavor so it was such a surprise when we tried Rang’s and it was the exact opposite. The meat is tender and the garlic & herb flavor seeped into it which made me eat a dollop of mashed potato with every bite. I swear it was love at first try! It’s another Rang’s dish I would recommend.
Rang’s is definitely for the busy moms, the moms who like to entertain at home but don’t have enough time to prepare dishes. Well, it’s pretty much for anyone who wants home-cooked dishes which they can enjoy with friends and family Congratulations on launching your new baby Ate Rang! I’m excited to try your other dishes next time!
