Rediscovering Mann Hann

We used to frequent Mann Hann because the food tastes great but because I had a not so nice service experience with them years ago, I crossed out the restaurant from my list. I don't really have plan to dine at Mann Hann again (ever) but serendipity strikes. One of my high school classmates arrived from Qatar and wanted to meet with us for lunch. I suggested Robinsons Magnolia since its the middle ground for all of those who are attending. I was about to suggest some restaurants but the host a.k.a. the one who will pick the tab chose Mann Hann. ;)


Chicken Feet. Photo doesn't look appetizing but tastes exactly the opposite. This was wiped-out.


Siomai. I ordered this but wasn't able to have a bite. I wonder why?


Yang Chow Fried Rice. Thumbs up! I enjoyed every morsel.


Spareribs. Super yummy. It says spicy on the menu but its spiced just right. I can concentrate on this dish alone.


Steamed Broccoli with Garlic. Good. Steamed vegetables creates a nice balance between the oil-y dishes.



We're too full to order desserts so we skipped that. Overall, everyone including me was happy with our lunch. And I guess I'm now also ready to give Mann Hann another chance and go back to the branch where my love-hate relationship with the restaurant began. ;)

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. ;)
