FOOD FINDS: DFS

It's always a treat to shop at DFS Manila since you won't go home empty handed. Also, there are a lot of sale items if one is just brave enough to comb the whole place. Although I usually avoid the home/decor section and simply go straight to the cholates(!), I felt thankful to J for steering me and C in that section first. Found a goldmine of discounted Christmas decors and pots and pans. But before anything else, be sure to have a photo taken at the nice looking kalesa before you begin shopping. You can also opt to have your photo taken by the DFS staff using their computer, then post your photo on your FB page. Cool, right? ;)



Here's my new food finds at DFS:

Pringles Honey Mustard. This is a yummy find! Had I known it tasted so GOOD, I would've hoarded. Oh wells, there's always a next time. Costs $2.



Pringles Salt and Vinegar. I still prefer Lays. But then, its a nice alternative to the usual Pringles that you can buy in the grocery. Costs $2.


Everyday Cream Biscuits. There are several flavors to choose from but I played it safe and only got two of these flavors. The chocolate is L-O-V-E. Okay, okay. I just love chocolates so I'm a bit biased. The Mango and Orange flavors was delish as well. Costs $0.40. Time to hoard!


Gimbal's Jellybeans. Bought tons of these because of daughter's candy business. She buys candies and chocolates and sells it to her classmates. Best way to learn how to earn and learn that money doesn't grow on trees (so what's with the money tree? hahaha). Costs $1.15. Btw, daughter and I had fun trying out all of the flavors. Jellybean-overload!


McVities Fruit Shortcake. These reminds me of the biscuits of Marks and Expensive (Spencer) that I love to hoard. Also, these costs way, way cheaper than the ones at Marks and Expensive. Tasted good, too. Costs $1.35.


York Pieces Peppermint. I was so excited when I saw this because even if I love chocolates, I have a special preference for mint chocolates (and dark chocolates). Alas, I can't give a review of this yet because I haven't opened the pack yet. Blame the boxes of Hawaiian Host that me and J bought. Hahaha. Costs $7.20. Not bad.



Btw, I was a bit sad with the chocolate section because I was really looking forward to buy some mint M&Ms and other mint specials that is only available during the Christmas Season but nada. Luckily, there are tons of mint M&Ms and other mint chocolates at S&R (according to a friend) so everything's okay. I just have to schedule a trip there soon before the Christmas crowd thickens!

PS. If you are going to DFS, be sure to drop by at the Hawaiian Host section. The guy in-charge just gave us tons of chocolate-covered macadamia to eat. Well, there are a lot of "free-taste" also but since macadamias are expensive, we made tambay in front of the guy and had our fill of chocolates before getting some boxes. Yum. ;)

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.
