RECIPE: TKG's Pork Nilaga

Sometimes, one needs to be creative when it comes to cooking nilaga (same with sinigang, menudo and adobo) because this is a typical Filipino dish. However, there is the "sawa" and "umay" factor if one will stick to the same ingredients over and over again.






So here's my variation (I have tons of nilaga variations) :

Ingredients:

pork legs
1 bunch leek
ground whole peppercorn
salt to taste
patis or fish sauce to taste
bokchoy or taiwanese pechay


Boil the meat. Add the leeks after 10-15mins when the meat is almost tender. Wait for another 5 minutes before adding up peppercorns, salt  and patis. Add the bokchoy when the meat is very tender and is ready to be served.

Happy eating!

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.
