Yabu-ness & Swensen's Day

It is not always that "I" gets to join us for breakfast or lunch or even just plain lakwatcha because of the tweenies. But today was an exception because it is Report Card Day.

I'm happy and proud to say that daughter's marks and general average are more than okay and she ranked 12th in class. Not bad, not bad. Hehe. Actually, I think its great since she studies on her own and I seldom check if she's doing her homework or not, not check if she's reviewing for quizzes/test or doing something else that she's not supposed to do. But she did well, and I'm a proud mummy!


So after getting our kids report cards from their respective teachers, J and I went to SM MOA to meet up with "I." And since we got there ahead of her, we enjoyed a bit (and another bit, and another bit) of shopping at Uniqlo. Chanced upon some skirts and shorts being sold at 70% off. WOW!

Lunch was at Yabu. We were supposed to dine at Tokyo Cafe but the waiting line was kinda longish and we were really famished. Luckily, we got a table as soon as we entered Yabu which was just above Tokyo Cafe.




I had the 90g Rosu Katsu, my default order here when I feel like dieting(?). Then I washed it down with tons of tea. As always, Yabu did not disappoint. The crew and manager was also friendly. Two thumbs up! :)

Afterwards, we went to Swensen's for dessert.





Because we were still full from our Yabu lunch, we just chose from the kiddie ice-cream creations.




"I" and I both ordered the princess while J got Mr. & Mrs. San. And yes, you can choose from the many different ice-cream flavors available. I had the green tea- yum!

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.
