Tous Les Jours and Other Food Finds

There's always a special thrill whenever there's a new food discovery.

To start with, I'd like to introduce the Korean Tous les Jours Bakeshop. At last, nagkita na rin kami. And look at the packaging, its so nice--- gwiyomi !!! It even has a cake server and candles just in case you forget to buy one. Costs less than P500. Thumbs up!





This is our first TLJ cake and I'm impressed not only with the taste (not too sweet so there's no umay factor), but it is also very pleasing to look at.



Pili Tart which came all the way from Naga. This was given to me by a very gracious lady named Apple. Nice and fresh looking packaging. You know what-- it is always a sure way to attract more buyers if the packaging or food presentation is done nicely and creatively.


As for the taste, it is very easy to like since it is newly made. I'm guessing not more than 48hrs out of the oven. The tart itself was crunchy and doesn't have any "flour" tastes as compared to the ones being sold on the grocery or tiangge. The filling is not too sweet also but it has a caramel-y goodness to it. However, I can't seem to detect the taste of pili nuts. :(


Korean Caramel Candy. Think Kraft Caramel except that this one lacks the chewiness and caramel taste. Costs P35/ pack. Most Korean Groceries have this but price varies depending on location. The items in Makati are much cheaper than the ones being sold in Ermita.


Stackers Cheeseburger.



Daughter had this earlier. I was supposed to have a bite but its gone in a few seconds. Must be good. Costs P135. But when I asked her about the taste, she said she still prefer the burger from Army Navy. Talk about favoritism! Hahaha.



Pon de Ring by Mister Donut Cafe. I forgot the name because this is just new on their menu. Its okay okay. Nothing exceptional except the eye-catching sprinkles which is so girly-girly. And I also like pon de rings even the plain ones because its chewy. Please see previous post of Pon de Ring by Mister Donut Cafe

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.
