Something Special

I've been on a food blogging hibernation for about the length of mercury retrograde now (glad that I have something to blame my procrastination for.. hehehe) and since it turned direct motion again, I feel renewed about food blogging again. And as a special treat, and because I got lucky to be at the right place also, I'm sharing one of Los Banos, Laguna's very yummy buko pie. It's been around like forever.

I remember that we always go to their store (the only one that time) somewhere near UP Los Banos. Our summers became much more special because of it. Imagine a child's delight after a refreshing dip in the famous hot springs of Pansol, Laguna then driving all the way up to Los Banos to feast on Lety's Buko Pie.

And since daughter doesn't have class today and we promised Popsie (my uncle) that we'll be accompanying him to Laguna, I remembered Lety's when we were on our way home. Luckily, they now have a branch somewhere near the boundary of Pansol and Los Banos so we didn't go to UPLB. On the other hand, I think we also missed the chance to explore UPLB. Oh wells, there's always another time. :)



I love the bright and cheerful yellow and green logo of Lety's.


That's my cousin-in-law, waiting for our boxes!



I remember years ago that Lety's opened a stall in SM Megamall foodcourt. Sadly, it didn't last. I guess people in Manila are much more familiar with Collette's, another famous name when it comes to buko pie. And the buko pie still tastes the same. I love it when stores, restaurants doesn't change or scrimp on ingredients just because they become famous.


Espasol. I love the box! So lovely with the peek-a-boo cover.


This is not the usual cute espasol that you can buy. These are huge espasol. However, I feel that it lacks some flavor or ingredients. I just can't remember where in Quezon can you find the yummiest espasol. But its good and filling.

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.
