Gilligan's Glorietta 5

This is literally my first time to eat a full meal in this restaurant. The previous times, we just ordered pica-picas and drinks.

With hubby, daughter and a friend in tow, we ordered the set meal that feeds 4 pax.




The Inihaw Na Pork Liempo was just so-so. Also, it was thinly sliced so you can't really taste the meat and it more on fatty than meaty-- not to mention, it arrived late on our table.



Then there's the Bangus Belly Sinigang. Hubby enjoyed this dish since he is more of a health-buff than I am. I love the sour broth since it remained hot for a long time. What I don't really like is that it tastes like the broth is made from powdered sinigang mix. I guess that's the downside of knowing how to cook a mean sinigang, hehehe.



This is what I ate the most! Boneless Crispy Pata. Not bad, but that that great either. I've eaten crunchier and tastier crispy pata (with bones nga lang!). But I enjoyed this so no harm done except when hubby commented that the crispy pata meat tasted luma (old). Yikes! Must be the frying oil that they're using.




And lastly, the Bistek Tagalog. A bit on the oily side but it tasted quite good considering that I'm not fond of the dish. It just happened that its included in the set meal that we ordered. No complaints here, really. Even the oiliness is tolerable.

The set meal also includes 4 iced tea drinks and a big plate of rice. And for the price of P700+ for four pax, I'd give it a thumbs up for the price and the servings since it can feed 5-6 not so hungry people on a budget. Happy Eating!

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. ;)
