Sen Lek Thai Noodles

This is one of the best resto discovery this January (so far).

While cruising President Avenue in BF Paranaque, C spotted Dong Juan, which she excitedly says was originally from Cebu. We would've eaten there but I said that since she already had an idea on what the food tastes like (with happy food memories, too), I sugessted we eat in a "new" restaurant so that we can rave or rant about it later on. Besides, both of us know that BF Paranaque is famous for its numerous restaurants. Initially, I was trying to recall the name of a Japanese resto that I've read in another blog but all I remember was Aguirre Avenue. And we saw the street (avenue) alright but we didn't see any Japanese-looking restaurant and we were already at the park/playground. Or maybe we made a wrong turn somewhere. And because we were famished, we decided to head back to an Italian resto that we saw earlier along President Avenue. Then we saw Dong Juan again and beside it was Sen Lek Thai Noodles. Hmmm ... looks interesting. And with herbs and spices for good health, too! Nah, we're not heath-food buffs. Just your regular foodies. ;)






It was already past 2pm when we entered the restaurant so no ones around except us, and the waitresses.  I love the shelf with the Thai decors. The place is very clean also. 


 
  


Ordering food, by the way, is done at the counter and you also have to pay first. O-kay. Its canteen-ish, not resto-ish. No problemo. Everything on the menu sounds yummy but we were able to control ourselves from ordering too much. And guess what- we were only P20 short of our forecasted food budget. Nice!


Chicken in Green Curry Sauce, P120. C said its good, with just the right hint of spiciness. Didn't get to try it, though. 
   


Thai Milk Tea, P50. Better than Soms! Not that sweet and you can actually tastes the tea compared to Soms which has about 150% sugar that you need to ask for tons of ice. But I love Soms Thai Milk Tea, also. Hehehe

Pad Thai, P90. The noodle was al dente which made us exclaim that maybe this is an Italian restaurant after all. But the jokes on us. It-was-so-good-that-we-were-praising-it-with-each-and-every-bite. That good, really.


 
Thai Bagoong Fried Rice, P120. Another winner. The meat was tender and flavorful and has the right serving portion, not "bitin." It's not malansa also (the bagoong).

 

   
Tod Mun Kung or Shrimp Cakes, P90. I was going to complain that it looks "konti" but then, looks can be deceiving. Its very filling and didn't scrimp on shrimps. And it doesn't look it's made from synthetic shrimps. 





That's the menu on the wall. The waitress was talking to someone on the phone so I'm guessing its either they do deliveries or someone will pick-up some yummy goodies soon. 

 


Glad to have discovered this restaurant. It would be nice to come back after a day or two or maybe next week but it's TOO FAR! Thank God for Skyway, though. ;)

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. ;)
