Happiest Hour At UMU

Because we were craving for some Japanese food after our reservation mishap at Midas, we ended up at Umu Japanese Restaurant in Dusit Hotel. Also, we were on a budget since Christmas Season can really put a strain on your pocket. After making reservations at Umu, we were told that we can avail of the Happiest Hour Promo at P950 nett/head. Inclusive of unlimited beer and sake. Wow!






I love the wooden decor with the kanji.



Tamago Sushi and Calfornia Maki. Tastes okay. Nothing to rave about.



I love salmon sashimi. Tuna is just okay. However, When I requested if I can just have a plate of salmon sushi, the one in charge said that its prepared that way. I should just leave the tuna alone if I don't want it. What a wasteful suggestion. Don't worry, I ate the tuna also. :)



Breaded Tofu. Yum!



My bottle of Sake. Nice bottle. Sake tastes a bit like vodka. Sprite please!



Christmassy decor on our table.



Us. From left- C, J, Me and I.



There are lots of sushi to choose from as well as for grilling but I forgot to take pics. Yummiest of the lot (but sadly without pic) was the grilled salmon belly. I love the crunchy skin!

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.
