Tummy Pleasures

Had a nice time chatting with C over buffet breakfast today at Ramada Central Manila. Lucky me- I got to eat (a lot) their crunchy bacon and french toast.

Sorry, no photos of the buffet spread. I had a hard time waking early lately because of the sweltering summer heat. It's like being inside the oven almost every day. 

C texted me yesterday that she and her dad will be in Manila up to today and is it possible for me to meet up with her today (at breakfast!), I readily agreed. Not because I wanted to wake up early but because I haven't seen her for a long time. Also, she mentioned that her dad is not a breakfast eater so there's an extra seat for me at the buffet table- yey! Thank you, uncle!

The bacon, as usual, tasted crunchy and yummy. Not the fatty kind that you get from the grocery. However, I can't say the same for the french toast. It tasted somewhat off this morning. Scrimping on ingredients maybe. But I still enjoyed it since C and I were chatting nonstop. Then I had a plate of salad greens, and bowlful of congee with century egg and siomai, a plateful of watermelon and a slice of melon and two glasses of orange juice. No, I'm not on a diet. I am just not hungry yet. Had McDonald's crispy chicken burger for my midnight snack last night- hahaha. 

Also, C gave me two huge packs of Zubuchon chicharon. Love love love! 




Then I bought mocha roll from Eng Bee Tin as pasalubong for daughter. She just loves this mocha roll. This is my favorite also.

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
