International Women's Day - March 8

Wishing my female family members and friends, Happy Women's Day.
Don't forget to treat yourself today, okay?

Had a planned breakfast date today with my "super-(mom) friends" at Ramada Central Manila. J and I were curious about the buffet since C and I dined there about a week ago. But this time around, C had to beg off because she has tons of things on her mind. That's another kwento, for our ears only.




And because I fell in-love with the bacon and french toast during my first visit ...


... I also had my fill of watermelon.


And because its International Women's Day today, I surprised my friends with these ...


Daughter taught me how to make the cute origami boxes. :)

And inside the boxes/envelopes are these lovelies!


That's us, posing in front of the camera. With our second plates, I think. ;)


And the celebration of Women's Day continues. I haven't seen my other "mommy" group for ages now. And since they are all working in offices (except me, a stay-at-home-mom), we decided to meet up for dinner. We dropped by at the newly opened East Wing of One Shangri-La Place Mall.


But since there's still a few restos there and we don't want to wait, we headed back to trusty old "The Ledge" at Shangri-La Plaza 6L and had dinner at Crustasia.


We had yummy shrimp cakes ...


... and Catfish Salad ....


... and Pineapple Fried Rice.


And Cereal Prawns. So DELISH!



To sum it up, I really had a good day with my "girl' friends today. Hoping to see you all again --- soon! Next week maybe? ;)

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. ;)
