Interesting Resto Find In Subic


Since most of the restos that we went to are either closed or unappealing, we chanced upon this goldmine after a few missed turns (n.b. be careful when driving in subic, you can get easily ticketed!).


Koko Buri. Actually, a friend recommended this resto but the one she ate it was in Angeles City and we crossed it off our list since it's a bit far from Subic. Luckily, we found a newly opened one just a block away from Puregold Duty Free. Yey !!!


Calamares. Beer battered and double-fried to perfection. And it's so cheap too. Costs only P150 for a hefty serving. The dip wasn't that exceptional though. Two thumbs up!


Soy Chicken. This is the one-piece soy chicken. Hmmmm, looks Bon-Chon-ish! But that's where the similarity ends. The one from Koko Buri was flavorful in and out. And super crispy too. Yum yum. Single chicken order with rice plus salad (shredded red and green cabbage and honey-mustard dressing in vinegar if I'm not mistaken) only costs P120.00!!! Two pieces chicken meal costs P185. Wow wow wow. Two thumbs up.
Hopefully, we can go back there again soon. Curious to try the pizza, pasta and salad, and other stuff on the menu.
Oh, and by the way. I ordered soy chicken but was instead given spicy chicken so my friends offered to just exchange it for theirs since they know that I don't like spicy food. Then after several minutes. The waiter went back to our table with a plate of complimentary soy chicken from the Chef saying that the Chef misunderstood my order. Big thank you, Mr. Chef. Our dining experience was made truly memorable with your service-orience gesture. I believe that what you did was a rarity nowadays in most restaurants. We are happy campers indeed. :)

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. ;)


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.
