Sundate at Sariwon

I've been curious about Sariwon, a Korean restaurant since it opened in Promenade but I haven't had the time to dine until last Sunday because daughter wanted to visit her beloved Fully Booked.

Actually, this is Sariwon's second branch, the first one is in BGC (too far!) and we don't really frequent the area because of the traffic and the distance.


Ban Chan. Look at that! The server mentioned that everything is unlimited, all we have to do is ask. Wow! Daughter and I liked that mashed potato/squash so much that we had 2 servings each. The potato and squash are well mashed that its really hard to decipher which is which. Must try! Then there's the peanuts which we thought at first was salty/spicy but turned out sweet/salty, we had an extra serving. Another favorite is the soya sprouts in sesame oil and the marble potatoes that merited another extra serving. The lettuce salad was quite good also. The kimchi was too spicy for me but I like it  nonetheless. We haven't had the main fare yet but we're already full thanks to the ban chan. And the servers are all really nice and attentive and smiling which makes the meal much more special.


Dwaeji Galbi. Grilled pork loin. I ordered this because we already had lunch with hubby earlier but daughter and I just wanted to please our cravings. This is grilled already although there's tons of choices if you want to grill the meat yourself. Nah, I still have to go somewhere afterwards and I don't want to smell like food. Even if we said we won't be eating rice and will just pair the grilled meat with the ban chan but the dwaeji galbi was so flavorful that we can't help but order a bowl of rice. This order is good for 2-3 pax and only costs P380 (excluding tax).


We're planning to go back again soon so and try grilling the meat ourselves. That's us- ready to devour the meal in front of us. ;)

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.
