Dinner!



I apologize for the crappy photo. I was in a hurry because, well- we're all hungry.
The citrus roast chicken turned out excellent. No need for gravy, ketchup & other whatnots.

ingredients:

1 whole chicken
orange or ponkan or kiat-kiat
1 clove garlic
calamansi
salt & pepper

wash the chicken and pat it dry with towels. rub salt & pepper all over including the crevices. then squeeze the calamansi all over the chicken and gently massage it. yes- massage. not the shiatsu-type though. when you feel that the chicken is already relaxed and happy, slice the orange (in this recipe, i used kiat-kiat since that's available in the fridge) in quarters and stick it inside the chicken. pound the garlic a bit so let out the flavor and stick it in also. if you feel that there's still space, add more orange.

then roast it in the broiler (much more healthier that way ... i think)

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.
