Mu, Share Tea And Toribox All-in-one Goodness

First stop was at Mu Noodle Bar in Wilson Street, San Juan. It's just a few steps away from the P. Guevara intersection.

Mu, in Mandarin means mother. We were supposed to dine here last Mother's Day but we forgot to make reservations and the place was full. We did manage to get a table but the place was really hot so we opted to dine at La Creperie instead.

So, here we are now, just daughter and I (my food-buddy and bff). I'm craving for some beef noodles kasi (thanks to the rain).



Took photos of the menu. Lahat yata masarap! Wow, oyster cake !!! I love oyster cake. My "bestest" oyster cake experience was at Wokk Inn, Malate.


Fried Lice! Ooops, rice pala. ;) Joke came from my Dutch Uncle who loves fried rice.


And the beef noodle soup. We opted for the miso-based and not the soy one.


And here's the beef noodle soup. The waiter said that the serving size is good for sharing. Lucky! The one in the photo is already split into half. Yum! Love the miso broth and the vegetables. But I do find the noodles itself lacking in flavor. But it is a really filling meal so we didn't bother to order more. At least we have an excuse to visit Mu again.


Daughter is curious about the Prawn Omelette while I want the Red Lamb Curry.



Too full but daughter can't resist ordering from Share Tea which is just next door to Mu Noodle Bar.



She got the Nagoya Milk Tea with pearls. Good choice! Love the caramel flavor. Costs P100 for the large glass.



And yes, we are really full but we love Toribox, so we ended up there again (for the nth time). The staff at Toribox are so nice and they also make us feel at home. One of the reasons we love going back there, aside from the addicting Karaage Pops.

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.
