Unexpectedly Sumptuous Discovery

Unexpectedly Sumptuous


RANT: We were a bit disappointed because we planned to have breakfast at Illustrado restaurant (it's 8am already) and we were told by the very accommodating security guard (2 thumbs up) that the waiter is not around yet. After a few minutes, he (security guard) gave us the menu. After a few minutes again, a grouchy-looking cook went inside the restaurant- maybe to get our orders. No way! No no no. A bad-tempered person even if he/she is a great chef (imho) must not cook simply because the taste of the food will be affected. So we left Illustrado with much disappointment.

Our next stop would've been Barbara's or Casa Blanco (or Blanca?) but I guess everyone is still asleep. So when we walked back to San Agustin Church where we parked, we espied Mitre. We were a bit hesitant least it was still closed but someone opened the door and let us in. There were already two tables occupied so I guess they serve breakfast. Yey!

Bangus Belly. Very tender and flavorful. I didn't even know that it tastes good with mashed potato. Yumminess! Costs P218 + 12% tax. Not bad.




Beef Salpicao. Tender beef. However, the salpicao itself lacks flavor. What could it be? Garlic. They forgot to add some garlic or garlic chips. Too bad! But then again, I love salpicao so I might order this again in the not so distant future. Costs P108 + 12%. This meal includes a glass of orange juice as well (powdered orange juice though).




Blueberry Cheesecake. Divine! Didn't scrimp on ingredients and no gelatin extenders. Two thumbs up. P78 + 12% tax.




Canonigo. It's like brazo de mercedes (egg-white) except that this one is covered with almond slivers. Wow! Tastes good, too. Around P55 + 12% tax.




Mocha Capuccino Cake. No need to order coffee if you order this. And quite a huge slice also. It's delish but the taste of coffee is too overpowering for me. Costs P88 + 12% tax.




We're definitely going back here and try the extensive menu on the list. Happy eating!

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.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
