Date With Eric

Eric Kayser is my family's current favorite pit stop whenever we go to Powerplant Mall. It is located at the lower ground floor just beside the MarketPlace Cafe.


Eric Kayser descended from a line of traditional bakers so it is no wonder that it is in his blood. He rose from the ranks and apprenticed under the best bakers and won a lot of awards from competitions. He opened his first bakery on September 13, 1996 in Paris. To date, there are about 18 bakeries in Paris and a total of over 60 around the world including Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and now in Manila.



A second branch is opening soon at the Promenade in Greenhills. Hurrah! I just live nearby. Hello lovely breads. :)

Chocolate Croissant. Daughter super love this and can eat about 2-3 if I will allow her. She even requested to bring some for her classmates. Yikes!


Salted Caramel Eclair. Hubby's favorite and mine too. This eclair reminds me of the ones by Monchen Gladbach, a bakery and pattiserie in Japan. I was able to taste Monchen Gladbach donuts (but it looked like an eclair) because a cousin hand-carried a big box after returning from her trip to Japan. Read about Monchen Gladbach here.

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.
