Lunch At Casa Roces

I've been wanting to dine again at Casa Roces since hubby celebrated his birthday there two weeks ago. There's still lots on the menu that I haven't tried so I need to satisfy my cravings. Luckily, my daughter's ninang happened to visit today so we happily went to Casa Roces.

As always, the restos interiors and the friendliness of the staff did not disappoint. And we got to seat (again) at our favorite table.

Ninang ordered the humba and daughter ordered the chicken inasal. I just ordered additional rice since based from my previous dining experience there, the servings are good for two people.



Humba. This is a popular Batangas dish that is usually made from pork legs and with banana flowers. Their version was made from pork belly, which was very delicious and tender. Melts in your mouth goodness. The meat was delish but the sauce was a bit thick and overpowering. A bit salty also but my friend said that it is because of the "tausi" or black beans. The meat tastes perfectl fine. The turn-off though was the "fat." As in I didn't get to enjoy it that much because I was busy separating the fat from the meat.




Chicken Inasal. Here's a dish with a W-O-W factor. Very tender and succulent. My daughter enjoyed every morsel on her plate. Well, not really since I asked for some slices. Compared with the Humba, this is the dish that I would gladly recommend without any embarrassing thoughts that it won't live up its reputation.

We capped off our meal with cakes but I'm saving it for another entry. Ciao!

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.
