Happy Birthday and Late Dinner at SOMS

P is celebrating her birthday today and since I made some ice-cream the previous night, I'll name the ice-cream "Merry Melon" in honor of her birthday. Gave P some ice-cream and got feedback that its yummy. Yey!

Pardon the photo, though. Earlier, I was asking my friend- N, to teach me the basics of food styling so let's wait and see. :)




Attended Fashion Week early this evening at SMX. I thought that there's a cocktail party but nada! Oh wells, glad that C mentioned SOMS. So after watching the fashion show and being introduced to Xian Lim, Gerald Anderson and Sam Pinto, off we go to SOMS near Rockwell. Luckily, its still open when we arrived which was around 10pm.

Haven't eaten at SOMS for a very, very long time and was excited to order a lot but C and I have been sensible with our orders lately. We avoid ordering too much. Besides, the servings at SOMS are good for sharing.

 


Thai Milk Tea. A bottle is good enough for 2 glasses. Tastes good. However, I find it lacking in sweetness. Or maybe I'm just craving for sugar?




Catfish Salad. This is my fave. Crunchy and sour at the same time. Excellent!

 


Yellow Seafood Curry. So good! Generous serving of squid and the 2 pcs of shrimps are not that tiny either. Thumbs up!

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.
