Birthday Dinner At Yutaka Izakaya

February 26, 2013

Since Daughter's birthday falls on a Tuesday, and they also have C.E.M. post-test scheduled today, she can only treat her friends during snack time which is like 15 minutes. She asked me to buy different kinds of sushi  instead of pizza, which was easier to order and with FREE DELIVERY service. Oh wells, she doesn't really make requests like that so its okay. I'll go to the Japanese restaurant and order tons of sushi for her and her friends. Also, the night before her birthday, we bought some cookies and candies and chocolates as giveaways. 



Then after school, we went back to that same Japanese Restaurant to have dinner with her special guests. She would've loved to invite more friends but since its a school night, I don't think her friends parents will allow them. So she just requested her favorite playmates who happens to be the daughters of my food buddy, C. It was an intimate dinner with good friends so there's not only the continuous flow of delicious food but lots of laughter also.


Daughter and hubby texting the guests to hurry up because they're hungry already! Hahaha. Just kidding ;)
We chose to sit on the floor instead of sitting on a chair. Now I know reason why Japanese people are slim--- the tummy gets squished while sitting on the floor so its next to impossible to pig-out. However, my friend C said that the Geishas are just good at hiding their tummy under their voluminous kimonos. The obi-belt hides the "bilbil." :P



California Maki. Daughter's favorite. Also, Yutaka Izakaya serves the best tasting very affordable california maki in town. P134/ 8pcs.



Roasted Rice Tea. I drank gallons of these because of all the food that I ate. Luckily, its free !!! The teapot looks nice. I think I saw that in Japan Home (P88).



Homemade Ice-Cream. Green Tea, Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanila. P50/ scoop. I heart the green tea flavor! Hubby and I had 3 orders between us. :)



And last but not the least --- daughter's cake. Its a refrigerator cake ala mode with strawberry syrup. And instead of a candle, I just used the Hello Kitty Happy Meal Toy that I bought last year. The heart lights up. There's a switch at the back.



The meal ended happily. Everyone's full (no kidding). Everyone's giddy with laughter. And everyone's sleepy. Time to head home.

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. ;)
