KDRAMA: Pasta

Aside from reading, cooking, parenting, (a bit of) shopping, photography, writing, etc., I am also enamored with koreanovelas or kdramas like everybody else. I am a late bloomer when it comes to kdrama but I've been hooked since 2009 after watching: You're Beautiful, You're Handsome which stars Jang Geun Suk. Though I hate to admit it, but I really fell in-love with the characters that when Samsung released the Corby phone, I was the first to get one. :P

Anyways, I just finished a marathon-run of PASTA. This was shown sometime 2010 but it is only now that I got to watch it. I can't remember what excuse I had then for not watching but I'm glad I did now. Also, I feel a special affinity with this kdrama since it the story revolves around chefs, Italian restaurant and cooking.




The setting was mainly inside the kitchen so there's a lot of cooking and chopping, etc going on. I can even imagine myself joining the chaotic action in the kitchen- haha. Also, this kdrama will be appreciated by chefs and wannabe chefs or simply anyone who just loves to cook and eat.

This kdrama has a total of 20 episodes which I think can be shortened to just 12. However, I did enjoy watching it although there are really some episodes that made me sleepy. But there were really some episodes which made me laugh and cry. Go figure. Just watch it. ;)

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. ;)
