FOOD FINDS: Tinapayan Festival (The House of Bread)

I've noticed a Tinapayan Festival store somewhere along Stop-N-Shop in Sta Mesa but never really had the chance to buy because we just pass by that route early in the morning when I bring my daughter to school.


Luckily, I was given this box of bread when I attended the book launching of Atty. Adaza. I mean, its kinda unusual to go home with a box of bread especially if one came from a book launching right? Thank you Atty. Adaza! :)

Cheese Pimiento Bread - This is my favorite among the five. I don't really like pimiento but this one is flavored just right. Bread is soft and has a subtle sweet taste which blends well with the pimiento.
Cheese Roll - Daughter and I loves this.
Cream Cheese Mamon - Another love!
Ube Twirl - Not a fan of Ube but it tastes okay.
Special Ensaymada - Tastes okay.



PS. Hubby is not picky when it comes to food so he gives all five a thumbs up. :)

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.
