Family Bonding Day

We all felt cooped-up so we decided to go to Market Market to deliver hubby's books then head to Shang Plaza afterwards. Unfortunately (fortunately!), we ended up in Market Market because of the Go Negosyo Fair. We enjoyed lining up for the 'free' ice-cream but found out that its not free after all when we're in front of the line. But the P10/cone was worth it. Super yummy. It's Milkylicious (that's the name of the ice-cream).

Late lunch was at Marina Seafood in the open air foodcourt of Market Market. I know its too early for baked oysters but we ordered it anyway. Daughter had her fave crispy shrimps and gulaman.

Then its play time for daughter. She really got excited when she saw the size of the playground. Its huge! We (I joined her) had fun up and down the slide. Hehehe. Got tired after playing so we rested our feet (where else?) at Starbucks. Had iced-choco and caramel cream frap.

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. ;)
