Mondate At C.Verde, Toribox + Serenitea

Daughter and I delivered something to tita M in Greenhills so found ourselves having a pre-dinner snack at Cafeteria Verde or C.Verde in Promenade. It was Princess Y who introduced me to this yummy vegetarian restaurant.

Same old, same old ... we love the vegetarian sliders and watermelon shake. This was my first post about Cafeteria Verde Even daughter love the food there so we've been eating there a lot whenever we go to Greenhills. The sliders are L-O-V-E.



Afterwards, we're still not ready to go home yet (after checking Fully Booked, Regina's and the tiangge) so we walked- yes, we walked from Greenhills Shopping Center up to Toribox. We had fun counting the cars, and telling each other some funny things stories. 

This is actually our first time to dine at Toribox. Actually, we've been passing this place in favor of La Creperie which is just next door because daughter is fond of crepes.  But tonight, we wanted to eat here.



Nice interiors. So cozy and they even have wifi (another plus factor for daughter, lol). Also, the color scheme reminds me of Muji. Simple and clean colors.



The menu board look so cool! I think I want one for our dinning room. Hehe


I ordered Karaage Pops and Chips while daughter had the Karaage Pops with rice. And its super sarap! The karaage pops are so addicting!!! We had another round. 




That's the gravy and italian cheese. There are other flavors to choose from but daughter wanted the cheese. And she made a good choice. What we did was to coat the karaaga pop with cheese then dip it in gravy then pop it in our mouth. Yum yum yum. So happy here. :)



Bought emperor milktea from Serenitea- a few yards away from Toribox. The waiters are very nice when I asked if I can bring in drink from Serenitea.

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.
