Date With Spock And Kirk

Daughter was so excited that she woke up early today. It is because we have some movie vouchers at RWM (thank you, tita B!) and because she wanted to eat donuts at Cafe Maxims. Please see Maxims Donuts for official photo.



We've been dreaming of these donuts since we saw it on RWM's fb page. I was thinking--- maybe its better than J.Co, a bit cheaper if you buy a piece (P35.00) compared to other donuts which costs P40+.




Pistachio and Choco-mint Donuts. Flavor tastes okay but it has a bread-like consistency than donut. No melt-in-the-mouth thingy. Soft bread with flavor- hehehe. Also, its small !!! Smaller in diameter than J.Co and Krispy Kreme. :P Too disappointed to order all the flavors.

But before that, we got sidetracked by McDonald's because of their Hello Kitty Toys. Hurray for Happy Meals!!!


And we brought home these two lovely babies ---


As for the movie, we ended up watching Star Trek even if we didn't want to watch it at first because we both think that its too boyish. However, the other choice was Bromance. :P But I am happy and proud to say that I enjoyed watching it. Action-packed although there were really some violent scenes that made me tell daughter to close her eyes and explained that this is just a movie. Its pretend violence. Sorry, no spoilers! ;)

Afterwards, we had our fill of karaage pops at Toribox (current fave hangout).


Then bought some items from The Little Store and DEC before going to Ola's house just in time for dinner. Grilled hito and sinigang na tilapia. Yum yum!

P.S.

Had lunch at the VIP Genting Buffet with my aunt B and cousin J two days ago. Here's what I ate. :)


California Maki and Shrimp Salad. The maki was surprisingly good. As for the shrimp salad, I thought the white strips were noodles, atchara pala. Ang asim! :(


Spinach with sesame oil, cheese, very hard to chew pork loin and soft bun. Love the cheese!


Dried date, soft bun, macaroni salad, and cheese. The macaroni tastes so-so.



Chocolate something, slice of melon, choco-chip cookie. Best!


There are a lot of food choices from the Genting Buffet such as rice, noodles, chicken dishes, soup, etc. but I don't feel like pigging-out. Most of my clothes are complaining already! Unlimited tea, juice, iced tea and coffee (several choices) 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.

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.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
