Chips, Chips and More Chips

My Top 5 faves:

1. Ruffles Sour Cream and Cheddar
2. Jack and Jill Potato Chips
3. Pringles
4. Lays Salt and Vinegar
5. Clover

Ruffles and Sour Cream Cheddar. I discovered this treat during a dutyfree spree years ago and I still haven't tire of it since then. I like eating it cold so I put it in the refrigerator for about an hour before I eat it. Eating it cold fools the tongue and tastes less salty than it actually is.

Jack & Jill Potato Chips. Comfort chips from my childhood days. I remember sneaking in some packs whenever I accompany my mother to the grocery store. I was the best when it comes to sneaking items in the grocery cart that its always too late for my mother to take it out of the cart when she is about to pay. Also, we used potato chips as a vegetable salad toppings during college- I forgot which class! Hubby also loves to buy this for me as pasalubong.

Pringles. I have fond memories of Pringles when I was in the elementary grade. My father brought home a big box of Pringles from the office and I fell in love with it. So in love that I even collect the cans. I remember hiding some pink Easter Egg candies and totally forgetting all about it. It ended up hidden for about a year before we threw them out. Kinda off topic but that's how I grew to love Pringles :-)

Lays Salt & Vinegar. This is not always available so it doesn't go up my list. But this is really yummy in terms of saltiness and sourness!

Clover. Cheese, cheese and cheese. The only problem I encounter with Clover Chips is that one's fingers tends to be orange-y after eating a small pack. My daughter loves this also--- she gets to eat chips maybe 1-2 every 2 months!

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
