Dimsum Feast At The Summer Palace

It doesn't always happen that one can enjoy unlimited dimsum at the Summer Palace unless there's a special promotion. Lucky us!




Xiao Long Bao. W o W! No need to elaborate.




Hakaw. Its okay.




Spicy Squid. So tender melt-in-your-mouth goodness. And not that spicy, too. Perfect!




Pork Siomai. Best to eat this last as it's too heavy on the stomach. Tastes good, though.




Scallop Siomai. Another wow! So huge! But then, I think this is a mock-scallop. ;)




Asado Siopao. I love, love the siopao. Extra order please!



To sum it up, my friend C and I enjoyed our lunch. BURP. And there's still lots of dimsum that we haven't tried yet. Too full!

Dessert is included in the buffet also but I forgot to take photos. Next time. :)


tips: avoid pork when starting a meal because it is heavy on the stomach. make sure to eat it last. avoid soda also and drink tea instead. in our case, we settled for water since we don't want to pay for a pot of tea (not included in the promo). hehe. avoid rice and skip the noodles, also.

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.
