FOOD FINDS: Trader Joe's Fig Butter + Real Dr.

I admit I joined the biscoff and peanut butter craze several months back but I haven't blogged about them. Maybe its because almost every blogger and everyone I know have been raving about this biscoff, this speculoos, this choco peanute butter, etc. That is until this bottle arrived at my house.

Trade Joe's Fig Butter. At first, I was hesitant to try this because I don't know what to expect. Also, the color doesn't look appetizing (dark brown jelly). But when I did taste it, thanks to a very hot pandesal --- WOW. For me this is better than the biscoff et al craze. Not too sweet also. And it tasted like "fig." But then, I haven't seen a fresh fig nor tasted one before this amazing bottle of goodness.



I'm thinking of baking a sponge cake and then using the fig butter as filling or maybe bake some tart crust. But what I do know is that it tasted good with bread. I also saw some roast chicken recipes with fig jelly. Let's just pray that this bottle lasts till Christmas- haha.

Real Dr. Soda. Daughter's been crazy about Dr. Pepper even if we don't drink soda/ cola anymore. Blame it on the book that she read last summer. So once in a while, the "spoiler mummy" appears and indulge her wishes. Daughter said that she liked Dr. Pepper best but this soda's okay. I had a sip but I can't tell much about the difference. :P

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
