Craving For Mitre's Crispy Pata

The day after Christmas, daughter had a lunch date with her Ninang Addy and I sort of tag along and even suggested where to eat- hehe. Actually, Addy and I were supposed to visit Mitre around June but our schedules doesn't seem to agree with our plans. So we ended up in Mitre last December 26.

I've blogged about Ristorante delle Mitre here, here, here, here, and here. I guess we've eaten here so many times already because the food is just great, not to mention the company. Hubby and daughter also loves the food here especially the crispy pata. I lost track of how many times we ate here already but I'm pretty sure I will come back again.


We arrived past 1pm so the restaurant was no diners around. Actually, that's a blessing for us because the food won't take long to arrive. Yey!


I've been promoting this crispy pata to Addy so it was the first one that we ordered as soon as we sat down. Really sinful but so, so good. Costs P318 for the regular size which can be shared between 2-3 pax. The large one costs P400+.


Laing. Because we need to pair the crispy pata with veggies. ;)


Calamares. Addy thought that the crispy pata and laing won't be enough so she ordered calamares. Tastes okay. 


Specially brewed Iced Tea. Daughter's current fave is drinking brewed iced tea. She already has her lists of places that serves the best brewed iced tea and that includes Mitre.


Addy and I skipped the iced tea in favor of water because we're keen to get the halo-halo. An order of halo-halo costs P108 and its good for sharing. We requested that they split the halo-halo serving for the two of us. Daughter planned to order some cakes but was too full already. There's always a next time. :)


After the satisfying meal at Mitre, we went to San Agustin Musuem, The Manila Collectibles and Baluarte de San Diego.

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.
