Morphing Into A Foodaholic

My family loves to eat but it was a friend, B.G. who introduced me to gastronomic delights in the late 1990's. I remember the nights when we (along with other friends) would roam the streets of Nakpil and other streets in Malate just to satisfy our food cravings. Our fave pit-stop then was Hap Chan in Malate and Whistlestop in Shangrila Plaza or Makati.

There was also a time when another foodie friend recommended RJ's Bulalo near Boni Avenue Circle. This was a very memorable dinner with B. The bulalo itself was delicious but he made it extra special by surprising me with .... wine! We had so much fun and laughter that night. Imagine the pairing- wine and bulalo.

And I can't forget the time we dined at Circles in Makati Shangri-La. After stuffing ourselves with food and dessert, he suddenly left me for about half an hour and when he came back, he was holding this box of cherries that his aunt just brought from Hong Kong. Yum! Glad that the resto didn't charge us for corkage.

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.
