Loire Valley, (pronounced as lwa) aside from being a wine region is also known for its chateaus and fruit orchards. In 2000, UNESCO included a part of Loire Valley to its list of UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Guests from the French community in Manila as well as some from the media enjoyed the evening sipping wine.

Here's a list of wine pairing choices although you can be adventurous and just trust your instincts and palate with wine and food.


I particularly liked the Pouilly Fume Blanc AOC 2011 Les Deux Cailloux- Fournier Pere et Fils with cheese and lobster. So good! Then I had the Anjou Rouge AOC 2010 'Clos du Saut au Loup' Domaine Dozon with foie gras. Actually, the waiting staff at La Veranda were very helpful with the wine choices when they see the food on our plates. They're also quick to suggest which wine goes well with this particular food.

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
