Italliani's Date and Astro-Clock 2013

December 27, 2012

Forgot to post this! Hahaha

Today, daughter and I had a nice date in Taguig. Actually, we ran some errands for hubby and we ended up going to EchoStore in Serendra to deliver some of hubby's book --- Medieval Astro-Clock 2013.





SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT:

The book includes a 12-month calendar (please see photo below) with daily luckiest hour time guide and lucky dates. It also have astro-meteorology articles. This book, btw, is calculated using Philippine time zone so it is much more accurate for "us" Filipinos.

Aside from EchoStore (Serendra, Podium, and Centris branches), it is also available at Earth-GeoShop in Cubao Expo, Theosophical Society Bookshop in Quezon City, Sunrise and Golden Phoenix stores in Ongpin, Manila and Mt. Cloud Bookshop in Baguio. You can also get your copy from Ms. Melanie Talag of Age of Aquarius Center in Greenhills (02-7262338). SRP is P350 plus P110 (LBC) courier fee. You can also send me your inquiries at: yorutsuyomi@gmail.com.






And because a trip won't be complete without eating (we went there with empty stomachs), daughter suggested Italliani's which was just several meters away from FullyBooked (my daughter is a bookworm and so am I).

And while waiting for our orders, we were served this (olive oil with balsamic vinegar) ...



... for this. Foccacia bread. Quite filling already!



The bottles look lovely.
 


Parmesan Crusted Dory. The fish was a bit salty mainly because of the parmesan but it blends well with the mashed potato and veggies. I ordered the smallest serving portion but I still wasn't able to eat all of it. Daughter helped a bit. She loves fish.



Seafood Pasta. I can't recall the name except that daughter enjoyed this immensely. Daughter's been feeling grown-up-y a bit lately and has been exploring other dishes with exotic sounding names. She loves to pore over menus, reading even the tiniest details that may have escaped some of us.

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. ;)
