sabroso lechon


i guess when one is in manila, one can't expect to taste cebu lechon here unless of course you order from CNT in cebu and have the lechon flown here in manila..

as for sabroso lechon, hmmmm.. its flavorful alright.. but i miss the crunchy balat (skin).. and i find it too flavorful for me.. maybe something is wrong with me.. more salty and there's a sour tastes.. based on the photo that i saw on the internet, they add tons and tons of tanglad (lemongrass) inside the lechon to make it flavorful. the one delivered to me (yes, they deliver per kilo) contains some sampaloc leaves.. as for the sour/salty tastes, could it be sinigang mix? hmmm... i know that some people use sinigang mix when making roast chicken. they rub the sinigang mix liberally on the skin and crevices of the butchered fowl..

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.
