Saturdate At La Creperie And Serenitea; A Mom's Day Prelude

We were supposed to have a pre-Mom's Day dinner at MU Noodle Bar but all tables were already reserved when we arrived (I should've called in advance). The only available table was the bar table but the lamp was just too close and it felt hot sitting there. It's like we are being slowly-roasted. Di bale, will come back soon. After all, its just a few minutes away from our place.

Hubby suggested Alex III but I want to eat noodles. Kanzhu Hand Pulled Noodle Resto was also full- it was already past 7pm. So we ended up at La Creperie which is a family favorite. Think delicious crepes.

I love this table near the window. Pang-date! But we didn't sit there because the table was too small.



Hubby and I both ordered the baked fish.


Thumbs up. Flavorful. I'm glad that the curry sauce doesn't overpower the fish itself, otherwise, I would think that this is an Indian resto in disguise. Hubby's only complain was the rice- ang konti! He had to order an extra one. Good for sharing. On the other hand, I find the pyramid-shape of the rice unappetizing. But that's just me, the meal itself was delish!

Prawn Pomodoro for daughter.


Thumbs up. The pomodoro sauce is l-o-v-e. However, the prawn was overcooked, but daughter enjoyed it so no harm done. I'm definitely going to order this on our next visit. I'll just remind the waiter to tell the chef not to overcook the prawn. The serving is also good for sharing.

And dining at La Creperie wouldn't be complete without ordering crepe for dessert. We skipped the tea since daughter is craving for milktea.

Salted Caramel Crepe.


Two thumbs up! This is our super favorite at La Creperie. We can eat tons of this except that you need to drink lots of water or tea since the sweetness is hidden under the salty caramel taste. Yumyum.

After dinner, daughter didn't give us a chance to rest and relax our tummy. Went to Serenitea which is a few meters away from La Creperie.


We just had a large order of Hokkaido Milktea and a single order of pepper corn. Still too full. Glad that I'm wearing a dress- hahaha.

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. ;)
