Dutch Dinner At Italianni's

Dinner date with my Aunt W and Dutch uncle, and Aunt B and cousins- L and L, and daughter at Italianni's in Greenbelt. I love family dinners!

Pomodoro. Comfort food at its best! Daughter and I shared this while waiting for her fish. I'm on a diet-mode tonight because I'm looking forward to dessert! :D





Salmon Pasta. Delicious! My Dutch uncle ordered this and he allowed me to have a taste. Yes, just a taste. I guess he liked it that much! Hahaha



Parmesan Crusted Dory.  Aunt B ordered this and because I was seated next to her, I can't help myself from having a small bite. Ugh! Salty! But Aunt B says that its parmesan-salty. I think its salt-salty.




Bread Basket. Charm the waiter to get an extra and another extra basket. That's three baskets already. Shhhhhh! :)




Herbed Fish Fillet. This tastes quite good BUT if you are really hungry, don't order this. Takes around 30 minutes before they serve us this dish. Daughter was too hungry to complain. :(




Two thumbs up for the food! Never mind the late herbed fish. We enjoyed our dinner immensely while exchanging stories and discussing our next family food adventure. :)

Off to have dessert now --- haha

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. ;)
