FOOD FINDS: The Spreadables

I got these beauties from a friend who also happen to sell them. Actually, the curiosity bug bit me so I ordered all three. Not to mention that we still have a big bottle of Nutella, Crumpy, and Skippy at home.


Marshmallow Fluff. This one we opened first. I mean, who doesn't love marshmallow? Also, it reminded me of my favorite cake with marshmallow icing from the Chocolate Kiss Cafe- its called, Devil's Food Cake.


So here's the marshmallow fluff. Its really amazing because the bottle is so light weight but upon opening it, it expands like magic. Nice on cupcakes if you are in a hurry and have no time to make icing, frosting or whatever. We use it as pandesal spread, though. Hahaha. Its what we call, "sosy na pandesal." 


Lotus Cream Biscoff. This is the most popular among the three. At par with Trader Joe's Speculoos. Love at first bite but I wasn't able to taste this until after a few weeks since a cousin begged me to give her a bottle. Luckily, my friend has another bottle left (it sells fast) so I claimed it. Even daughter and hubby loves me. It tasted like cookies- Biscoff being a cookie brand that is usually served on airlines. I prefer mine with hot or warm bread such as "pandesal." Daughter like to use it on cookies, apples and bananas. Hubby prefers it on bread, like me.


This one we haven't opened yet. I'll post a review asap. Its just that we still have tons of spreads to finish. Goodbye, diet. ;)

    Makes me want to order a jar of the Marshmallow Fluff too. But I still have 3 jars of crunchy Biscoff (which I love!) here, so I gotta pace myself. ;)

    1. The Marshmallow Fluff's good but you get "sawa" afterwards... I prefer the creamy biscoff myself ... but then, biscoff is biscoff! :)

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. ;)


Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.
