Tim Ho Wan: Coming Soon in Manila

Tim Ho Wan has the best pork buns, or so I was told when I went to The Great Hong Kong Food Adventure last October. Actually, I've also been meaning to eat in this dim sum place which has received a Michelin Star but I got sidetracked with other things. The original branch is a few steps away from City Garden Hotel in Sham Shui Po where we had our OpenRice luncheon but I saw a branch in IFC Mall which was really crowded when I passed by so I ended up somewhere with Macarons! Hahaha. But my foodie companion bought tons of delicious pork buns from Tim Ho Wan as his pasalubong. 

Btw, I love pork buns and before I heard of Tim Ho Wan, I am in-love with Lugang's Pork Buns.

But then again, good news for foodies in Manila. Tim Ho Wan is opening soon in SM Megamall. Nice! I am just a short ride away from that mall. NB: Be ready to fall in line because waiting for a table maybe quite long-ish. Don't say I didn't warn you. ;)

I guess 2014 is something to look forward to for foodies like me and you. :)

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.
