NEW RESTO ALERT: Hawker's Market

A new kid on the buffet-block. Had it not been Momsie's birthday, we wouldn't have discovered this buffet gem right at the Remington Hotel in Pasay City.

The location is not that visible though since its beside 7-11 at the Remington and the entrance of the restaurant is almost fronting the parking entrance of the Resorts World Manila. But luck was with us today and we all ended up having a nice dinner. Also, Hawker's Market is just a day and a month old, according to one of the waitresses.




That's the pasta, seafood and meat section of the buffet, and the tempura as well. I haven't tried the tempura but I am going to RAVE about the grilled squid. Its not your usual grilled squid since this one includes some fillings. I really find the dish so delicious that I can't even identify if the fillings are made of meat or fish. And the squid is very tender also. Yum. My cousins noticed that I was really enjoying the grilled squid that they ordered also. Definitely a winner! Sorry, no photos since I was too busy eating it. ;)


This is the dining area upon entering the restaurant. There's also another section near the salad and dessert table. I love the lamps and the color scheme of the restaurant. It looks very clean and relaxing. That's our "long" table on the right. There's 14 of us including a baby.


My favorite area- Japanese spread. I had about 4 plates of salmon sashimi, a slice of mackerel and 4 slices of tamago. Someone commented that I don't really like salmon sashimi.


The Salad Station, then the DIY Halo-Halo Station and the Dessert Station at the other end. Didn't get from this table though. I had my fill of vanilla ice-cream at the ice-cream bar at the other side.


Random food photo that looks yummy.


Daughter ordered pesto carbonara here. She shared some with me. I like it.


The seafood paella. The Chef was the one who recommended this dish. Its okay but I'm still craving for paella negra. :D


The friendly crew at the grilling station. Two thumbs up for the delicious grilled squid. :)


The duck and the lechon reminds me of the restaurants in Chinatown. I was planning to go back and get a slice or two of the duck and lechon but it skipped my mind. Now I have a good reason to dine here again. Yey!


The dessert station.


Another random food photo.


Salad Station. So many choices.


The suckling pig and the baby back ribs.


 That's the buffet rates. It also includes drinks- fresh fruit juice, fruit shakes, coffee or tea. I think it is reasonably priced since there are really a lot of delicious food choices.


Restaurant entrance inside Remington Hotel. Its at the end of the hall after the elevators.


ps...
According to the waitress, this restaurant is the sister company of Tao Yuan Restaurant.

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. ;)
