Eng Bee Tin's Huge Mooncake

Breakfast with my mommymates have been postponed for a week due to the typhoon and since we're back in school today after a week-long vacay, we scheduled a breakfast date in Manila's Chinatown (our default breakfast area). I arrived first and since most establishments there were still closed (still too early), I decided to wait for J at Chuan Kee (had a bowl of congee). Luckily, J didn't take long to arrive so we did our errands first while we waited for another friend. And since I've been seeing this giant mooncake at Eng Bee Tin's FB Page, I asked J if we can check it out and take some photos.


And its really a huge mooncake! 75 inches in diameter and 3 inches thick of yummy goodness. I wonder how many salted eggs are there inside and how many kilos of beans and flour did they use? I love mooncakes but the yummy ones are really expensive. :P Note-to-self: Learn how to make a mooncake. :)

That's us, trying not to drool over the mooncake while someone from the store took our photo for their fb page. Yikes! Pardon the sleepy look. Hahaha


Anyways, you can have your photo-op with this huge mooncake at Eng Bee Tin's store in Ongpin, Manila.

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. ;)
