The Amazing Johnny Chow

Hubby and cousin J and I had a late dinner here the other night. J and I were supposed to join momsie, daughter and Lilith for dinner but they already ordered room service at Maxims and we don't feel like eating inside the hotel room.

So dinner was a choice between Johnny Chow and Johnny Chow-- hahaha. Can't think of any other place to eat. Besides, I've only eaten here once (with momsie, last February) and I didn't have my camera with me and it was a quick dinner since I have work that time. But whatever it is that we ate then had a lasting impression so I vowed to come back and dine in again.


Spicy Steamed Peanuts. You get this for free while waiting for your orders. I guess this is a healthier option to fried peanuts. ;)


Xiao Long Bao. Tastes okay. But then, I forgot to eat this while its still hot/warm so by the time I had a bite, the texture of the skin was already rubber. Still, the filling was flavorful though.


I was the one who ordered this but I forgot what its called. Quite good also. Nice dish to begin a meal- a conversation piece.


Yang Chow Fried Rice. J and I thought that the serving is just right so we ordered another fried rice but we were wrong. This yang chow is good for 3-4 pax. And I think its delicious since J almost finished the whole order by himself.


Salted Fish Fried Rice. This is what hubby and I shared. Yum! I love salted fish fried rice. :D


Sweet and Sour Pork. J didn't share this with us. Must be good! Hehe


Super Tender Lechon Macau-like dish. I think I'm in pork heaven while eating this. Hubby who usually shuns pork also fell in-love with this dish. I'm definitely coming back for this! :)


We're happy with our dinner and happy with the bill since we were also given a 10% discount for being a RWM card holder. Yey!

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. ;)
