Leaning Tower of Golden Spoon

Going to Golden Spoon Shangri-La Plaza branch is a current fave hangout place for me and daughter. I guess its the yummy yogurt ice-cream and friendliness of the staff that makes as want to go there even on rainy nights. And yes, they are the same staff since the place opened up years ago.

So anyways, after they renovated the Shanri-La Plaza branch, they also started offering new things such as the DIY cups which costs P199 - P399. And the fun part is that you can get as much ice cream (in all flavors if you like) as long as it can fit on your cup, then did I mention the sprinkles, and chocolate and caramel sauces? So anyways, we always get the smallest cup which is called the "cupful." It cost P199.




But this time around, we asked help from one of the staff. Sorry, I'm having a senior moment now and I can't seem to remember her name. However, she's the one with the cheerful face and friendliest smile. And she created a tall tower of ice cream for us--- yum! We only selected three flavors-- red velvet, cake batter and chocomint. From the rim, the ice cream was about 6 inches tall. Then daughter added tons of mallows and toffee underneath. So good but really, its hard to finish it all by ourselves (including hubby). Looking forward to more happy ice cream days (or rather nights) at Golden Spoon. :)

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. ;)
