SIEM REAP: Blue Pumpkin

My friend and I discovered Blue Pumpkin during our first foray in the busy streets of Siem Reap. The first branch that we saw was a few steps away from the Old Market. This boulangerie is popular in Siem Reap as it has numerous branches including the one at the airport. The prices are reasonable and way cheaper than the ones here in Manila (seriously).


I got attracted to the baguette and other crusty breads. A long baguette (not in photo) costs only $0.90usd. I bought baguettes, had them sliced and brought it with me when we went to the temples. :D


They also have sandwiches and other yummy-looking items.


And they also have ice-cream! A scoop costs $1.50 and there are tons of delightful ice-cream creations. Sadly, I wasn't able to try the ice-cream here.


Chocolate Croissants.


Chocolate Caramel Tart. These yummies made me visit Blue Pumpkin daily and I even brought some for hubby and daughter.


I had a phase with macarons so even if the colors and flavors are tempting, I didn't get a single bite.


Cute mini cakes. Alas, its fruit-flavored so I skipped them.


I bought a chocolate caramel tart during our second day at Siem Reap. And because I've been eating other sweets already, I was able to make this tart last for three days. I kept it in the fridge in our hotel room and only ate tiny bites after spending a tiring day at the temples.


I miss the chocolate caramel tart already. I guess Blue Pumpkin will be on my list of places to go to should I visit Siem Reap again (in the near future).

  4. You don't like fruit-flavored pastry? I love them! But I agree that those chocolate tarts look really rich. If probably go back daily for a dose of those as well!

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.
