NEW RESTO ALERT: La Vie Parisienne

This French Bakery, Deli and Wine Library is barely 6 months old having opened last January only. La Vie Parisienne located at the ground floor of Hotel Rembrandt along Tomas Morato in Quezon City.




I love the Parisienne-feel of this shop.


Deli items. I got excited with the cheeses! I bought some St. Nectaire and Asiago. I'm coming back for more! :D


Had I not known that my cousin is baking brownies, I would've bought a slice or two. They have yummy looking macarons also but I've had my fill of macarons for now. Aside from wines and other liquors, they also have some affordable sparkling wines in five fruity flavors that costs only P290. I'm really coming back- soon!


Chocolate Croissant, P47. This is daughter's favorite so I bought two for her. Two thumbs up! Tastes so good and I love the chocolate bits. I know it will taste better if reheated but daughter's already devouring it; was able to have two bites though. Lucky me. :)


Croissants. There are other breads also such as the famous baguette but it was way past 9pm when we got there. We were advised by the helpful staff to visit the shop in the morning when the breads are just out of the oven.


Chocolate Eclair. Costs less than a P100. Taste is similar to Monchen Gladbach which is actually a donut that looks like an eclair. I think this will taste better if chilled. The one I ate spent too much time outside the counter being photographed! The store also offers sandwiches or you can choose from the wide selection of breads and cheeses and pair it with wine. ;)


There are hundreds of wines inside the wine library but all the tables are occupied and I don't want to interrupt intimate conversations. It has 4 tables and can seat about 16 pax.

  1. Wooooow! Is this for real? For those who watch Yakitate Japan, I can compare it to Pantasia in the heart of QC? This might be worth a visit!

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.
