Massimo's This restaurant is a haven for Italian cuisine-lovers. They also serve Angus and Wagyu Steak, and Alaskan King Crab. For starters, we were given focaccia bread with artichoke dip (bestseller). Then we moved on to pasta, fish and meat. We washed everything down with fresh dalandan juice and iced-tea. Afterwards, the temptation of peach shortcake, panacotta and gelato followed. The restaurant, named after the owner and Chef Hazel's son nestled in the highlands of Tagaytay. A few meters after Petron station, you'll see the sign leading to Massimo's. The red homey-looking house will make you wonder if you are in the right place, but upon seeing a jade-green rabbit at the foot of the stairs, this is it. The interiors are not your usual resto-setting. It's more laidback, relaxed and just right for the cool Tagaytay breeze where one can dine without being hurried. Night patrons will find romance in the candlelit ambiance of the place that also includes a quaint chandelier. Massimo's also serve wine, pizza, salad and soup. Gelatos are available in chocolate, vanilla, coffee flavors.

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. ;)


Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.
