Silverio's In Dagupan, Pangasinan

We were supposed to have lunch somewhere near Bolinao, Pangasinan but the restaurants along the highway were full of diners and we can't find a parking space so we ended up in Dagupan (still in Pangasinan). That's about 2hrs away from Bolinao so we were quite famished and the kids cranky also. Silverio's was just after the bridge and along the highway and we were puzzled when we arrived because we saw parked vehicles outside but can't spot diners inside.

But the staff who greeted us led us to the al fresco part of the restaurant which is right beside the river- wow! So that's where the diners are.



We had a very relaxing view of the river and some men in small boats (bancas) paddled near us to offer pails of clams and oysters, and even mud crabs. Yum! I was tempted to buy but I know that we won't be home till about midnight and I was worried that the seafood will spoil even if we have an ice box in the car. Oh wells, not meant to be. I'll just enjoy the view while eating.

Warning: Do not attempt to read nor look at the following photos with an empty stomach. ;)


Kinilaw na Tanigue. So fresh! The tanigue tasted so good that I think I ate almost half of it. Daughter loves this too.


Kinilaw na Talaba (oyster). Yum! Daughter wanted to taste this but I told her not to since her tummy might not agree with the oyster.


Grilled Squid. Look at the size! Fresh squid. All you need is to squeeze some calamansi or maybe dip it it soy sauce with sili.


Pinakbet. Because we need some veggies that's why. The bagoong was a combination of alamang and bagoong isda (shrimp paste and fish sauce).


Lumpiang Shanghai. Wasn't able to taste this because I was concentrating on the seafood. The kids had this as well as chicken barbeque and pork barbeque which doesn't have photos because the kids attacked it already.


Lovely calamansi and labuyo.


That's us (or them, since I was the one who took the picture).

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.
