Mango Tree BGC

We haven't been to BGC for ages since its really far from our place but during those times that we did, there's always a nice discovery.

And its Mango Tree this time where I had a sumptuous lunch with old and new friends.


Yum Som O or Pomelo Salad. This is a staple in Thai restos. Very good! The pomelo was juicy, the shrimp and dressing was well blended so the burst of flavors is not hard to miss. I won't tire of eating this all day.


Nua Phad Gra Pow (L). A spicy beef dish with basil and chili peppers. Phad Thai (R). Another well-known Thai dish made with rice noodles and scallions and beansprouts. I love both, I don't know why. ;)


Talai Phad Prik Thai Dum (L). Its mixed seafood with capsicum and black pepper sauce. Phad Phak Bung Fai Daeng (R) or stir-fried morning glory (kangkong), with garlic sauce, chilies and soy bean sauce. Had several helping of the seafood but skipped the veggies. Hehe


Chicken (L). Po Pia Goong (R). Deep fried spring rolls served with chili sauce. I think I skipped these two dishes also. Blame the beef and seafood dish. ;)


Sakoo Nam Ka-ti. Sago (tapioca) with coconut cream. L-o-v-e.

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.
