Resto Picks

Bizu
We all love Bizu. The cakes are sinfully deliciously and the pasta is just great. We also love the macaroon de paris which is quite costly for such a small piece but is really divine! Fave flavors are caramel, mint, coffee and raspberry. Their bread and duck liver pate are also superb. It's best to buy the bread around 9pm albeit the discount ;)

Sugi
The freshest tuna and salmon sashimi I've ever tasted are served in this resto. Alas, the price is quite far from our family budget of pigging out.

Nanbantei
Grilled Japanese food are in. We always order the aspara maki, quail eggs, tuna, pork and chicken liver. Then doused everything down with Nanbantei's house tea and you're ready for another round of order. The Salmon Steak is also yummy.

Cafe Provencale
Aside from pizza, they also serve pasta and meat dishes such as beef tenderloin, lamb chops and pork chops. I love their pork chop with mashed potato side dish. Resti craves for their grilled squid. Isabel will eat anything we order but not without her watermelon shake.

Pho Hoa
Beef noodle soup with mint leaves, lemon and bean sprouts.

Gerry's Grill
Sisig and calamares. What else? Cali Ice or mudshake if they have any. Oh, and vodka sprite for me.

Circles
The resto's extensive buffet is to die for. Yes, literally. You'll die from overeating. Hahaha. Hidden in the vastness that is Shangrila Makati, Circle's is making itself known as the best hotel buffet around town. Of course it's pricey being inside the hotel but we get to eat for free upon availing of the hotel's room accommodation. Eat your heart out, guys!

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. ;)
