Dampa Farmers


Once in a while when we happen to be in Cubao and can't think of a restaurant, we'd head off to Farmers market to buy some seafood (yes, I love going to the market) and then bring it to the "dampa" section where you can choose from several "paluto" restos. We always end up at S-I-S, I don't know why. 


Kilawing Tanigue. Hubby and I love this! 




Calamares. Another favorite. Daughter loves this so much that we always make sure that to buy some extra for her take-home!



Sinigang na Hipon. A meal won't be complete without soup. Alas, even if it tastes good, they use powdered sinigang mix. Oh wells!

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.
