Yen Yen Taiwan Street Food

Because we weren't able to have dinner at Eat Fresh (didn't know that they're closed on Sundays!), daughter and I walked around Wilson area until we espied Yen Yen Taiwan Street Food. Now if you are familiar with Eat Fresh, you'll know that street food means food sticks. So we decided to eat at Yen Yen which is a few steps away from Santi's in Wilson.


The restaurant looks nice and clean because of its green and white theme. However, the place is small, maybe around 25 pax can eat (others can just buy take-outs, hehe). The waiters are courteous and generous with their smiles.
 

But upon checking the menu, we can't find the food sticks that we've been craving for. Oh wells, there's always another day or night for that. Now let's check what's on the menu. ;)


Salt & Pepper Ribs. This is so good! Love that its just with the right hint of spiciness, too. The ribs was tender. My only complain was that the vegetable sidings wasn't enough. Hehehe. Huge portion of rice also. Costs P170.00


Crispy Porkchop. Daughter ordered this. Had a bite and its flavorful and tender. No need for the sauce. I thought it was ketchup but its sweet-chili sauce that looks like ketchup. Costs P180.00.


Wintermelon Iced-Tea. Shared this drink with daughter. Tastes o-kay BUT I still prefer wintermelon milk tea. Daughter liked it since she ordered it. Costs P50.00. Actually, I was curious about the Butterfly Iced-Tea and was about to order that. I asked the waiter why the name. He said its like Nestea but sweeter. O-kay. Water please!


There are still a lot of interesting sounding choices on the menu so another visit is called for. Besides, its practically near our place. Yey!

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.
