Steveston: Canada's Best Artisan Pizza Now In Manila

This artisan pizzeria which is quite famous in Canada is now here in Manila and already has two branches since it opened in April 2013 along Tomas Morato in Quezon City and the second branch at U.P. Town Center along Katipunan Avenue which opened in October. For being a newbie here in the country, Steveston is doing quite pretty good and the U.P. Town Center branch was quite full when we visited recently.



In a nutshell, Steveston Artisan Pizza originated from Richmond, Canada. Chef Nader Hatami who owns Steveston, created the $450 pizza, a very expensive pizza which is topped with a thermidor of lobster, black Alaskan cod, and a side of Russian osetra caviar.

Classic Ceasar Salad.


Chicken Wings. This is so good! The mango glaze is the winner here because you'll just craze for more. ;)


Brewed Iced Tea. Daughter gives this a two thumbs up. She's the expert on brewed iced teas.


The Elements. Water, Earth, Wind, Fire. Although you can order a whole pizza with two flavor choices, we requested ours to include all the four elements so that we can try all of it. A word of caution though: The "Fire" element is not for the faint-hearted. Well, I chickened out upon seeing all those red chilis. But I bet its good because my foodie companion ate all of it. I love the "Water" element- the one with the shrimps and other seafood bits. By the way, the white ball in the middle is called bocchini cheese. Bocchini cheese are made from the milk of water buffaloes. They are milk in taste and very soft.


Japanese Pizza. It has wasabe dressing aside from the nori and chicken toppings. I heard that this is one of Steveston's bestsellers. Thumbs up!


By the way, the pizza's are all in 12" so this is great for big groups or if you are really, really hungry. Also, I'd like to commend the establishment for promoting biodegradable plates, cups and utensils. Two 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.
