Carnivale Night Food Market at Venice Piazza

Foodies in the McKinley Hill area are in for a treat as Carnivale, the night food market by Mercato Centrale group opens its doors last December 12, 2013 at The Venice Piazza Mall. It is open every Thursday and Friday from 6pm-3am. The food event was also graced by Consul Fortune Ledesma, RJ and Vanessa Ledesma, Rachelle and Anton Diaz, and Megaworld Executives.


Of course, the real highlight of Carnivale are the numerous food stalls that can make your life difficult. I mean, each food stall offers an array of delicious food so choosing which one to go to can test your limit especially if you are on a diet. But then, its best to reschedule your diet. ;)

Mouthwatering bagnet. Bagnet is deep fried marinated pork belly. Yum yum.


Pasta favorites.


Tiny tacos called Taclings.


Takoyakis!!! I was so happy when I saw the Tamayaki stall. Read my blog post about them here and here. Also, daughter and I just ate at their latest branch in Landmark Makati two weeks ago.


Streetfood! I had the quail eggs (can't resist quail eggs) and the "isaw" or chicken intestines. I've tried the streetfood in Hong Kong but even if I find it good, I still prefer ours. Read about my Great Hong Kong Food Adventure.


Dynamites !!!


Cakes by K. Yummy red velvet. They also have Lengua de Gatteau.


There are also jugglers and monocycle rider to amuse the diners.


There's also a man on stilts!

Venice Piazza is located inside McKinley Hill in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. McKinley Hill is bounded by C5 to the East, the American War Memorial to the North, Lawton Road to the West and the Philippine Army HQ to the South.

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.
