Fare Thee Well Bliss

Bliss Cafe in Baguio City will serve its last order later today and bids us farewell. Although I've discovered it only in 2011, I've been visiting this cafe whenever we go to Baguio. Also, I didn't know then that it was owned by a friend.

Bliss Cafe is one of the vegetarian restaurant and belongs to the must-visit-place-when-in-Baguio. The place looks very nice and relaxing also. The place is owned by a husband and wife team who also does yoga and meditation and it does reflect on the way they decorated the cafe. The vegetarian chicharon here is l-o-v-e. Read about Bliss Cafe here.


I asked my friend during our trip to Baguio last week why they are closing shop and she mentioned that she wants to embark on a new journey.


I know a lot will be missing Bliss Cafe (including me) since it's one of the popular places to dine and visit when in Baguio but I understand my friend's need to answer an inner calling, a new life path and journey. So here's wishing Shanti and Jim, goodluck on your new endeavors this 2014 and A-Blissful farewell to Bliss Cafe.

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.
