Bibimbap



This is a typical Korean that is popular with Filipinos. Why? (1) Because the name is easy to remember and (2) because it's a rice meal. A bit spicier though so if one is really eating authentic Bibimbap (not the Filipino fusion-kind), don't make the mistake of mixing the red chili paste with the food itself. Simply remove some of it and just add and mix until you get the desired and tolerable level of spiciness. The Bibimbap shown in the photo was from Snack 88 along Bocobo St., in Malate. This is the authentic kind since the Unnie who manages the restaurant is also the one preparing the food and the restaurant caters mostly to Korean tourists here in Manila.

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.
