Breakfast At Lam Tin

I have to thank my foodie-mate because if not for her, I wouldn't be able to discover this Chinese Restaurant. This is similar to Wai-ying in Binondo except that it is located in Banawe (think car parts and accessories). Also, it is was one the few resto in the area that's open before 8am.

First photo is a very nice luscious-looking hakaw. This is good but I still think that Wai-ying's hakaw is better. It is still filling, though.



Sharksfin siomai. It's not really made from sharks fin so there's no animal-cruelty involved unless one is a vegetarian. And this is G O O D and I am not really fond of siomai but this one is so so G O O D. See? G O O D.



Congee with century egg. Like siomai, congee is not something I will order unless someone forced me to. I usually associate congee with fever (visualize a sick child who can't swallow anything but congee/porridge). And surprise, surprise. I liked it. Very flavorful and filling. It warms not only the tummy but the heart as well. Brings back happy memories of childhood when warmth means being entwined in a parent's embrace.

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.
