Patchi Chocolates

One of the finest chocolates I've tasted. Before, I just waited for someone to hand carry some for me but now, Patchi has its own boutique in Bonifacio High Street (there's also a branch in Greenbelt 5). Now I can just visit the store whenever I have some serious chocolate cravings. Cool, right?



Patchi originated in Lebanon in 1974 by Nizar Choucair. It is one of the leading and well known brand of chocolate in the Middle East region and is now available in 29 countries. (source: Wikipedia)

Nizar Choucair, the founder of Patchi grew up surrounded by chocolates since his family, including uncles are chocolate makers. Chocolate is in his blood, he says proudly. (source: Sweet Taste of Sparkling Success.



This elegantly-wrapped chocolates may seem expensive but if you won't buy the box (the packaging is what makes it expensive) and simply indulge in the chocolate itself, then you'll be a one happy and satisfied customer. The store sells by piece also and price ranges from PhP35 to PhP75 (that's less than $1 to about $1.50), not bad. Besides, these are gourmet chocolates so you need to savor each piece slowly. ;)

And I'd like to commend the staff at the BHS branch for being friendly while helping me with my choices and giving suggestions. Too bad I forgot to take their photos (senior moment).




Look at that display! Lovely, lovely chocolates. I think I want to stay here forever. :D



My fave Patchi, btw are the dark chocolate ones. Really, really good!

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. ;)
