Lunch At Brent

January 31, 2013

Arrived in Baguio earlier than usual so instead of asking W to pick us up (me and daughter) at the bus station, we decided to just take the cab and surprise W and M at home. And yes, they were really surprised since they are still in their jammies when we arrived on their doorstep. Hahaha.

We can't resist not joining them for breakfast- hot cocoa (very apt for that cold morn) and toasted bread and jam. Then we had an hour or two to kill before lunchtime so we just lazed around in the attic- our assigned room. Actually, daughter and I love the attic since we already slept there during our first stay with W and M.




Our very cozy attic quarters and our cute beds!



Daughter playing temple run (if I'm not mistaken) while watching TV at the same time. That's in the Family Room beside our attic quarters. I love the pink sofa!


Brent International School, Baguio City. We decided to have lunch here because W and M told me about the school's buffet lunch (for the students) and sometimes the parents can join also for a token fee of P100. OMG! And they change menu every day. Wow wow wow.




That's the Salad Buffet Table. Had three plates of salad greens with aioli dressing. M told me that Brent School has a new chef now. It seems that the school (pirated) the chef from Baguio Country Club. ;)


Daughter got lucky because they were serving roast beef and chicken lollies that day. We had lunch an hour early to avoid the students since we'll be using one of the tables. They also have a fruit table laden with ripe mangoes, bananas and pineapples, and a platterful of fresly made strawberry tarts. Yum!

Afterwards, since we walked to the Pink Sisters Convent to offer our prayers of thanks for the blessings that we received and for the nice friendship that we have with W and M and family. :)

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. ;)
