Midnight Buffet At Corniche

February 23, 2013

This is our suprise pre-birthday treat to daughter. So earlier today, I nagged her about taking a nap (which she wasn't able to do because of Battle Cat or was it Cat Battle?) so that she won't feel sleepy when we go to the midnight buffet at Corniche, Diamond Hotel. Of course, I didn't tell her that we're going to a buffet because she'll be very excited. Yes, she loves to eat and lucky her because she remains skinny. Life's not fair. :(



I made a reservation the day before so we didn't leave home until its almost 10:30pm. And we still have about 15 minutes to spare and freshen up.


That's my first plate. Two kinds of cheese, pizza and soft bread. Cheese tastes delish, the pizza was so good, and the bread, well, its really soft. I love everything on my plate.



Another slice of cheese, penne with meat sauce, bacon, lamb balls, beef steak something, and baked salmon. I love the bacon (so crispy!) and the cheese. The penne was just so-so, the beef was flavorful but a bit hard, the lamb balls- nevermind! The salmon was o-kay except that it has too much cream so there's the umay-factor after a few bites. I'm going back for the bacon!


First round of bottomless iced-tea. Good but sweet.


His and Hers Sangria. Hic! Wasn't able to go back for seconds though because I got side-tracked with the bacon.


The pineapple was so sweet- love it! I had another round. The choco cake was squished so I just dipped the soft bread on it- yum yum yum. As for the tart, I forgot to eat it ... because I had another round of bacon, hehehe.


Another round of cheeses. And creme brulees. At first I don't want to taste the chocolate creme brulee and had a bite first of the other one but when I did, it felt that I went to creme brulee heaven. Soooo good! And everyone was eager to snag the other creme brulee (the one on my plate was the last one on the dessert table) but there are more than enough of the chocolate one. I'm glad I got both. :)


That's daughter and I. Photo taken before we ate a lot. ;)

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. ;)
