Brunch At Outback Glorietta

Just last week, about two days before my trip to Hong Kong, I met up with C and J in Glorietta for a brunch get-together. Also, J recently celebrated her 18th birthday so this is a special brunch for us.

I can't remember the last time I ate at Outback but I'm pretty sure that it was at the Glorietta branch also.


We were the first ones inside since the restaurant just opened its door for the day. I wanted to sit near the window but was voted against it because the sunlight might ruin our photos. Haha.


Ceasar Salad with Spicy Shrimps. I love the romaine lettuce and the dressing and the slivers of cheese. Perfect blend! The shrimp was not too spicy, thankfully and it tasted good with the salad.


Seafood Pasta. No need to rave about this. I just love seafood. ;)


Buffalo Wings. I almost didn't eat this because I've already eaten more than my usual amount of chicken but I can't resist especially when C and J mentioned that it was delicious. So I had about three helpings of chicken wings and a stick of celery. And my friends were right because the chicken was indeed delicioso. The chicken's hint of spiciness will make you crave for more bite instead of asking for water. Amazing!


Dark Bread. So good with the chicken and the salad that we asked for an extra serving. This comes free, by the way. Crunchy on the outside and chewy inside. Alas, the second one that was given to us stayed too long in the oven and tasted burnt. :(


That's J with her molten chocolate cake ala mode. Happy 18th Birthday !!! Cheers !!!


And that's us- looking full already even if we haven't touched our food yet. ;)

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.
