Happy Lunch!

We were so happy with our Ristorante delle Mitre experience yesterday that we couldn't resist not going back today to sample the lunch menu. It was stressful though when it comes to ordering because of the extensive menu- hahaha. And speaking of menu, it needs a separate entry. You'll find out why! ;)

Crispy Pata. You need to eat this as soon as it lands on your table so that you'll enjoy the crispy skin. What's crispy pata without crispy skin, right? It was flavorful enough that I didn't bother with the dipping sauce (toyo-vinegar). And for the price of P288 + 12% tax, it's more than worth it. There's a larger piece that costs around P350+.




Lechon Paksiw. Sadness. Too sweet with nary a hint of sourness and lechon sauce. I won't be ordering this again. I'd stick to home-cooked lechon paksiw from now on.




Laing. Even if it's not spicy, this is a great pair for the crispy pata. Costs around P150+ for this huge serving. Really huge serving!




Pasta Bolognese. If you're craving for good old-fashioned spaghetti (think childhood memories), then this is it. Sauce is bursting with flavor and the noodles al dente. Two thumbs up.




Halo-Halo Special. I'm not sure if someone can finish this order alone because I know I can't. Luckily, there's three of us to share this wonderfully delicious halo-halo. Also, the ube ice-cream was not that sweet (so there's no umay factor) and it was homemade, too. I didn't check the price though.

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
