Ramendate At Ikkoryu Fukuoka

It is not always that daughter craves for ramen. She is much more of a burger and steak lover but tonight was an exception. Hubby happened to have a meeting somewhere in Shang Plaza and we volunteered to join him for dinner- haha. Also, daughter has been singing ramen, ramen, ramen for quite some time now so I guess we have an excuse to dine at Ikkoryu Fukuoka. So after checking the shops for shoes, shoes, and shoes (someone is shoe-crazy lately), we ended up at Ikkoryu. Luckily, we were third on the list so we didn't get to wait that long for our bowl of ramen.


The interiors are actually cool with its wooden divisions with Japanese characters, the red chairs and the friendly staff.


Ajitama Tonkotsu Ramen. Daughter loves this and it also happens to be the bestseller. I guess the reason why daughter loves this so much is because the broth is creamy and flavorful. A perfection of ramen art. And she can even finish a whole bowl herself- takaw! :)


Black Garlic Ramen. This is mine, all mine. I love the burst of garlic and other flavors in my mouth. The meat, as always is very tender and easily melts in the mouth. The broth is superb even without the ramen. But then, how can it be a ramen if it doesn't have ramen noodles, right? It doesn't come with egg so I just got daughter's half. Yum! Actually, you can order the egg separately or maybe add some gyoza. :)


Itadakimasu!


Can't wait for our next ramendate. :)

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. ;)
