Puto Binan

It took me about more than a decade to taste an authentic Puto Binan again. The first time i've fallen in love with puto Binan was when I was still working as a Junior Market Research Assistant and that was really a long, long time ago. My research partner- Rose, hails from Binan so every now and then she brings this yummy puto to the office.

And after endless search, tasting the puto Binan sold in Greenhills tiangge, food stalls in the malls, the food stalls at St. Jude Parish and then being gifted with a big bilao of puto Binan.. all of which tasted different and doesn't lived up to the Puto Binan as I remembered. Then about a week ago, we happen to visit my cousin who manages a canteen in one of the top Call Center in Metro Manila and we were served puto Binan! At last--- yum yum yum!

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. ;)
