Yabba Yabba Yabu

February 20, 2013

Daughter and I had a spur-of-the-moment dinner plan with C, little C and Uncle Panda today at Yabu in Robinsons Magnolia. So as soon as daughter's class ended today, we were off to Magnolia. Actually, I was dreaming of Thai food but since Uncle Panda haven't tried dining at Yabu (gasp!) yet- and also, because C is treating us (and also as an advance birthday treat to daughter) so we ended up there. Besides, I love the food at Yabu.



And the D-I-Y sauce ... A great stress reliever, too. ;)


Daughter seriously grinding the sesame seeds into oblivion ...



And I am wiser with my tonkatsu order this time. I got the 90g only. See, I'm on a DIET diet (Did I Eat That?) hahaha. Also, I don't want to experience (again) my blood pressure shooting up because of pork tonkatsu overload like what happened to me the first time I ate at Yabu (takaw kasi e).



Daughter had the Fish Kiddie Meal (it was so konti! but she ate half of my tonkatsu anyway so its okay), C ordered seafood, little C had the chicken katsudon set and Uncle Panda ordered pork katsudon set.





Aside from unlimited cabbage and rice, you can also get a second serving of the miso soup.

Afterwards, we enjoyed some shopping before having coffee and milktea at Happy Lemon. Another treat for Uncle Panda.

Daughter received an early present (aside from the dinner treat) from tita C. Thank you !!! I also, got one- 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. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
