Double Yummy At UCC


Funny thing happened. Daughter had a theatre date with cousins and aunt O. So while waiting for them, me and C had fun exploring Newport Mall and RWM. We had a light dinner at Noodle Works. Then we got tired and decided to have dessert at UCC (will blog about it soon). Went around the mall a bit after dessert and then C left when O texted me that the musicale just ended and she'll text me again where they'll be having late dinner. Hahaha. They ended up at UCC, too. Yes, I know, the food there tastes good. I'm not complaining. ;)




Mango-Kani Salad. Since I'm still full, I just ordered salad. I love mango-kani salad... except that ... the mango was sour. I like my ripe mango sweet. But then, ripe mangoes are unpredictable when it comes to sweetness so its ok. Yum yum crab stick also.




Mushroom Pasta. O's order. Good!




Fried Chicken Omu-Rice. Winner! R ordered this. It was served piping-hot so don't just happily dig-in. ;)




Salmon and Shrimp Omu-Rice. Daughter ate this. She loves anything with shrimp and salmon. However, because the omu-rice has a hint of spiciness, we had it changed to plain rice. Daughter says two thumbs up.




Lengua Omu-rice. O and N was supposed to share this but N ate it all. Delish?




Sugar Crystals. For coffee or for the cakes. Crunchy. Kids love this. :)




Sugarfree Tiramisu. O's dessert.

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.
