Wan Chai Tea House

Me and my mommy-mates haven't been going out much lately because of our different skeds but when we do have time, we make it a point to bond over food and (sometimes) shopping. ;)

We were sked to go to a different restaurant today but because that resto doesn't serve dimsum, we opted to go to Wan Chai. I'm glad I told J and Ina to choose the resto this time since I wanted to taste something new. Actually, I've seen and passed by Wan Chai for so long that I think it is high time to visit it now--- and I'm glad I did. :)


Took some photos of the menu ...





And here's what we ordered --- Pork Siomai. Wasn't able to taste this, inubos ni Irene! Hahaha. Must be good. :)


Quail Egg Siomai. Yum! This is love. Well, I love quail eggs so its easy for me to love this.


Special Siopao. It was already sliced when it reached our table so I apologize for the unflattering photo. The siopao's flavorful and the sauce is quite good. Not your usual siopao sauce if I may say.


Mango Sago. Irene's fave. Hindi nag-share! Hands off kami ni Jovee. :(


Fish Congee. Super good! We didn't share this with Irene. Hahaha. ;) The congee is flavorful already. Will eat this again soon. One whole bowl for me next time.


House Tea. Free-flowing.


It was already way past breakfast time when we went to Wan Chai so we almost had the whole place to ourselves.



To sum it up, it was really a wonderful dining experience at Wan Chai. And Ina and I would like to thank J's fil (father-in-law) who shouldered our bill. He happen to eat his breakfast there and saw us. Thank you, Uncle! Xie xie ni. :)

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.
