Mitre And Peanut Butter Tourists

Its so hard to sked a kita-kits with friends especially during summer but since Jovee lured us with sweet treats and hello kitty goodies, the "date" was set faster than a blink.

As always, we don't bother to order anything from Mitre but crispy pata and laing. What can I say? The crispy pata was calorific but divinely delish! Must try. Costs P318 regular and P480 large. Three to four persons can enjoy the regular size crispy pata as long as you will order other dishes too. Or good for 2 pax! ;)




Alas, laing was not available that time so we had the crispy shrimps. Our first time to try this dish.


Not bad. And the shrimps were fresh! But its so konti, as in bitin. Pica-pica for 1-2 pax only. Costs P148.00.

And this is the reason why Irene and I needed to meet up with Jovee. ;) We got a bottle each. Thank you!




Reese's Peanut Butter. Mine, all mine. :D Let's see if I'll like this better than Skippy Roasted Honey Nut. Check future posts.

Another new and yummy discovery at Mitre- home-brewed iced tea. Just be sure to tell them to serve it in a carafe. It was Irene who ordered it first then Jovee and I fell in-love with the pink carafe. Irene also mentioned that it tastes good and not nestea. Alas, ours was served in a glass. :( May favoritism! Hahaha.


Then we played tourist for a bit and took some photos outside Mitre. Attempts at being a photographer.





That's Us, pre-crispy pata attack mode. Missing Christine at today's lunch.

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. ;)
