Konbini Finds



Instant Miso Soup and Sakura Blossoms Preserved.

One fine day, me and my friend C went to Greenhills. We were supposed to eat at Conti's but we just can't get a table. We then decided to move to Angel's Kitchen. Then while waiting for our food, we sneaked in at Konbini and I found these two interesting items.

Miso Soup. A sachet equates to a small bowl of soup. This is not the powdered type of soup. Its more like the miso (paste form) that you see in the market, except that it tastes better. Just add hot water. Seaweed strips are already included in the sachet.

Sakura Blossoms Preserved. I guess curiosity got me this time. Sakura refers to cherry blossoms. The cute pink flowers. However, cute doesn't mean its delish. SOUR. Super, super sour with just a hint of salt and sugar. I won't be getting this again.

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. ;)
