Monteland's Giant Siopao

One day, when a friend and I had nothing better to do but eat breakfast in Binondo, I remembered another friend recommending this siopao from Monteland. After walking around and looking for Monteland (we thought it's a restaurant), some nice Manangs guided us with directions. It turned out to be a bakeshop. The siopao costs P100 and since it's still early when we got there, I was given a frozen siopao. It costs P100 but 2-4 pax can share it depending of course on one's appetite. I forgot to ask for sauce so I can't comment on that. Taste-wise, I like the giant siopao from Emerald Garden along Roxas Boulevard. I find it more flavorful than the one from Monteland.



*** I already sliced the siopao in half before I remembered that I still haven't taken a picture of it so it looks "butchered" in the photo. Mea Culpa!

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.
