Wee Nam Kee

Because we don't often go to Makati, it took us more than a year before we can have a bite of Wee Nam Kee's chicken that some friends have been raving about. The branch where we visited was in Promenade although there's also another one in Shangri-La Plaza's East Wing.


Daughter and I decided to avoid the lunch crowd by arriving around 2pm. We literally had the place to ourselves for about 10 minutes before two other groups arrive. I love the clean and uncluttered interiors.


Servers were not that accommodating, maybe because they want to have siesta since its 2pm. :P


We were given soup but there's not much to rave about it. Also, soup doesn't taste good if its not hot or warm. Tsk tsk


Soy Chicken. Maybe I got disappointed with the soup and the server because it didn't taste memorable.


Another so-so dish. Even the pork is unrecognizable because its drowning in sweet & sour sauce.


Maybe I'll give it another try after a year or maybe visit another branch. ;)

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.
