FOOD FINDS: Eric Kayser's Salted Caramel Eclair

We happen to visit Powerplant Mall after avoiding the place last December due to traffic and was surprised to discover that Eric Kayser was already open. Maison Kayser turned traditional bread into a work of art. He opened his first store in 1996 in Paris and has expanded to major cities around the globe including Hong Kong, Japan, and now in Manila.


The store in Powerplant Mall is located beside Rustan's Marketplace. I would have passed it by if not for the big orange sign. That's when I saw the eclairs!


It was already passed 7pm when we saw the shop so most of the breads were sold out already.


We were going to watch a movie so daughter chose the chocolate croissant (I think she got the dark chocolate one), and I got the dark chocolate cookie for hubby. The cookie was just okay but daughter was singing praised about the chocolate croissant. I had a tiny bite and it was good. The cookie and croissant costs P85 each.


Salted Caramel Eclair. This is mine, all-mine! lol .. Ate this at home. Really, really good and its worth the P120 price. Note to self: go back to Powerplant asap and hoard salted caramel eclairs. :D



PS. The store is still on its soft opening so they're still fixing things there. But that's okay since you'll be after the cookies, eclairs, breads anyway. :)

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.
