Trinity Restaurant At Dampa Macapagal

This is the default restaurant of hubby's family whenever there's a get-together. We have so many family lunch or dinner here- no kidding.






Sinigang na Salmon Belly. Heaven! Except that the soup tastes powdery- lol. Knorr Sinigang Mix? A bit salty, too.



Calamares. This is my all-time favorite. Alas, it doesn't quite tastes right today. Something's off. I just can't pin-point it.




Inihaw na Liempo. Great but on the dry side.




Buttered Shrimps. This used to tastes good BUT maybe the restaurant has a new cook? Instead of buttery-goodness, the sauce is laden with flour. :(




Crispy Pata. Another flop. But then, you really can't expect superb crispy pata in a seafood restaurant, right?

RANT: I've been eating at Trinity Restaurant for years now. First time was around 2006. But this is the first time that I can truly say that the quality of the food is deteriorating. I wouldn't be recommending this restaurant anymore. Also, we bought 2 kilos of shrimp for tempura but it didn't arrive on our table. It's gone missing! Luckily, it was the asst. manager who received our fresh seafood so they didn't raised hell when they replaced our order.

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. ;)
