Bag of Beans Revisited

It was really part of our Tagaytay itinerary to go to Bag of Beans, but we prefer the new branch which is just nearby. Alas, we seem to have missed it completely so we ended up in the main branch which was really far from Tagaytay proper. But luck is with us since we got to try new food that we didn't order before.


Chicken pie. I'm not really crazy when it comes to chicken and pies but this is delish! Although I admit I wouldn't order this if not for my friend. But then, I would recommended this to those who are crazy about chicken and pies. note: I prefer the Sheperd's Pie but its not available when we dined there. :(




Grilled Cheese Kiddie Meal. That much? for a kid's meal? Value for money. Portion is good for 2 pax also. Two thumbs up!




Pancakes and Omelet. Another kiddie meal. Really? The serving's humongous and the one who ordered this meal is a 6 year old kid. What can I say- winner!




Hot Chocolate. I ordered this but got bumped off by a kid, though. Ha ha ha. She said- "Hands off. The hot chocolate is mine!"



This yumminess wasn't really my order but serendipity strikes so I get to drink this. And oooh la la ... definitely a winner! However, if you are already feeling the cold Tagaytay air, don't order this. ;)

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.
