Clubbing at Lunchtime

I was a guest at the Dell Latitude Series Launch last week and venue was at the K-Pub in BGC. I am not really familiar with the place but when I googled (yes, thanks to google) it, the venue is located in the old For Strip. Gosh! I feel so old. Seems like yesterday when we made the rounds of the restaurants/ clubs there and usually went home way beyond curfew time. And such fun we have not to mention also being able to fit in Rei's mini-car.


Ban Chan or the free pica-pica. Spicy dilis, spicy tofu and spicy pickled cucumber. I like the dilis and the cucumber best. The dilis was crispy, and the cucumber explodes in sweet, spicy and sour goodness.




Jap Chae. Excellent taste! The noodles was chewy (al dente), the toppings and flavorings blended well together that I wanted to feast on this alone.


Korean Pancake. Its basically omelette with onions, garlic, leeks (I think) and others that I can't identify. Didn't like this, though. Tasted a bit flour-ish to me. I'm guessing that the batter wasn't mixed properly.


I just had a small bite of this (thanks to my friend who's beside me) but forgot what it is. I was busy with the Jap Chae and the Spicy Chicken Wings.


Spicy Chicken Wings. OMG. Another winner! The chicken was really crisp and flavorful, except that its spicy- hahaha. But this was so good I had three. ;)


Burger and fries. I was too full when I noticed this on the table. Oh wells, something to look forward to next time.


Some of the lunch crowd ... or rather, the attendees to the Dell Launch.

Toodles!

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.
