Kare-Kare Night

Yummy! I used pork sinigang cut and lots of pechay and sitaw. Hubby and daughter loved it- they should! Otherwise they'll get hungry if they don't like the way I cook. We all had third helpings. Then there's dessert, Arce's Mantecado Ice Cream. But let's talk about the kare-kare first. I let the meat boil for about and hour and a half (the water contains a clove of garlic) before I added Mama Cita's Kare-Kare mix. Let ot boil again for another fifteen minutes before adding the sitaw and the pechay. And of course, you have to season it with salt and pepper.

Other notable kare-kare that i've tasted came from the kitchen of Tita Baby and Ate Annie (Resti's sister). I also like the kare-kare in Barrio Fiesta but not in Aristocrat.

Next time I cook kare-kare, I plan to try it with ox tripe though I guess I have to use pressure cooker.

Ciao!

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
