Birthday Lunch At Ristorante delle Mitre

C celebrated her birthday lunch at Mitre because we love, love the food there. The crispy pata was our number one priority and laing. We've already tasted the laing and it blends well with the crispy pata. Alas, the kitchen ran out of laing (lots of customers when we arrived at the restaurant). But that's okay since there's still lots on the menu that we haven't tasted ... yet.




Fried Chicken and Fries. Didn't get to taste this because its chicken. But I know its good because I didn't see any leftovers. J was the one who suggested this dish since she saw the same dish come out of the kitchen. Yes, she watches the food that comes out of the kitchen. ;)




Seafood Kare-Kare. We ordered ox tail kare-kare during our last visit but found the sauce was too thick and not enough for 4 pax so we tried the seafood version since we were told that it has more sauce than the ox tail. I like it especially with the bagoong.




Crispy Pata. We had it chopped already so it doesn't really look very crispy pata-ish. Also, the skin was not that crunchy anymore. Maybe its because it arrived early and our group is not complete yet. But still very, very good. Only the bones were left.




Pansit Bihon. Costs P128.00. Good for sharing. The pansit has a lemony taste so no need to use the kalamansi. I think it has some wansoy also but I am not really sure because I can't find any leaves. Or maybe its invisible kinchay. Hahaha. Highly recommended!




Mais Con Yelo. I'm glad it looks appealing. We were almost saying--- oh no! when "I" ordered this (blame our saba con yelo experience at this restaurant) but luckily, it looks okay and delish than the saba counterpart. You can also ask for extra milk. Yey!




Halo-Halo. I'm glad we didn't ask to the waiter to split our two halo-halo into four because the glass they'll use are kinda small (the mais con yelo glass) while they use this big glass for an order of halo-halo. Besides, you can just ask for a small bowl or glass. The first time we ordered this, there's 4 of us who enjoyed it. And yes, we were given extra milk and another. Two thumbs up.




Blueberry Cheesecake. C's birthday cake. And we almost forgot to order her a cake because we were already full. But what's a birthday without a cake, right? So we just ordered a slice of her favorite cheesecake. Yummy! A slice costs P138.00 but they didn't scrimp on ingredients. So cheesy- hehehe. Highly recommended. I'm definitely ordering this again ... SOON.

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.
