Craving For Paella Negra And Crepe

Whenever I discovered a restaurant and the food tastes great, I go back there again, and again and I bring my family and friends.

And my current favorite is Calderon. I just can't get enough of the paella negra. Super sarap!

So when I met up with my college frinds for my post-birthday get-together, I suggested Calderon.




Me and my lovely friends. All of them pursued a teaching career except me.



While waiting for our paella negra, we had the Bacalao ala Vizcaina. This is good but you need tons of bread, trust me. And my friends don't drink so we have to drown ourselves with water. Btw, one of my friends saw her former pupil in Calderon (with his family). Small world indeed!


The famous Paella Negra. Need I say more?  Read about my first Calderon experience here.



Gambas al Ajillo. Yum yum.



Afterwards, we moved in to Calderon's French neighbor--- La Creperie. ;)



Had my favorite salted caramel with vanilla ice cream.



DIY-Crepe that looks like La Christine but with salted caramel syrup.



La Christine.

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. ;)
