SPOTLIGHT: Gerard Papillon

Gerard Papillon's name is synonymous with Pamora Farm. I already saw him years ago at the Salcedo Market but wasn't able to have a chat with him because I was feeling shy then. Then I saw Pamora Farm's booth at the World Trade Center and he's there. So I was able to have a friendly chat with him about Pamora and the healthy effect of free-range (organic) chicken as compared to the commercially grown (and headless) chickens.






And he is so nice and funny! I mean, being a French guy, that he is. Uber charming. And once he started talking, the Pamora booth was suddenly swamped with eager listeners. I didn't even notice a crowd when I arrive at the booth.

As for the free range chicken, they're a bit expensive that the ones being sold on the market and supermarket but you can really see and notice the difference especially for me and daughter. Both of us experience an allergic reaction if we eat too much chicken. Daughter even had an asthma attack before from eating chicken. And even if expensive, I really do buy free range chicken and I'm lucky that the grocery near our house stocks up on Pamora products. So in a way, this is not only an interview but I'm also thanking Mr. P for coming up with the idea to market these chickens. And I'm happy and honored to have met him. :)

Aside from selling whole chicken and chicken pieces, they are now offering chicken pate. Yum!

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. ;)
