Baguio Sojourn

As soon as daughter's school ended last March 20, daughter and I packed our things and went to Baguio City for a much needed rest and foodtrip. Hubby followed a few days after and we stayed there until the day after Easter.

As usual, we had lunch at Brent's cafeteria. Had my fill of vegetable salad, beef and fish fillet. Yum yum.





And Baguio is not Baguio without eating these ...


The strawberries costs me P20.00 for half a kilo. Not bad for a dose of vitamin C and anti-oxidants. ;)

And because it rained for 3 days when we arrived, we don't have any choice but to go to SM (its that or being stuck at the house). Luckily, we espied some waffles (or rather, smelled the waffles first).




I had the ham and cheese while daughter got the choco-hazelnut. Tastes okay for less than P50. Stall is near National Bookstore, SM Baguio City.

Then on another rainy night, we donned on our "waffle" jackets and headed off to Bliss Cafe, to have our fill of vegetarian chicharon and yogurt drink.

Then daughter and I had fun hiking around Camp John Hay and got lost in-between.





We discovered this milktea place. Actually, we already saw it the last time we were at the Baguio- Ayala Technohub but wasn't able to try it then. We ordered peppermint milktea at Moonleaf.




Lots of tourists at Camp John Hay.

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. ;)
