Al Fresco At Puerto Del Sol

Puerto Del Sol is one of the most picturesque resort that I've been to. This resort is located in Bolinao, Pangasinan. We happen to be here because Baguio was super crowded and Little Bear wants to go swimming. You can read about our Day 1 in Puerto Del Sol here and Day 2 in Puerto Del Sol here

We were quite famished when we arrive because we didn't eat lunch along the way thinking that Bolinao was just two hours away from Baguio. After freshening up which includes the kids jumping in the pool, we adults proceeded to the Al Fresco Restaurant of the resort. And I immediately fell in love with the charming water container. 

The restaurant has the best view of the West Philippine Sea. Actually, I think that its best to have a hammock here than tables and chairs so that one can doze off after having a meal. ;)

The photo above was taken the following morning, hence, the low tide. 

We ordered Bihon Guisado, Chicken Inasal, Lumpiang Shanghai and Mango Crepe for our snacks. 


Food is okay. Nothing memorable except the excellent view of the sea especially during the sunset.


Bringing of food is not allowed in Puerto Del Sol so you may have to spend for snacks, lunch and dinner. Breakfast buffet is already included in the rooms though.

  3. Hi, I just want to know if they are strict with number of persons in a room or they are lenient? We booked 1 room & there will be 3 adults & 1 toddler.

    1. Not that strict naman. But you still have to pay per head for the buffet. BTW, if you wish to use the kayak, better do it after checking in or before the sunset because its lowtide in the morning

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.
