FOOD FINDS: Unit 16 Sweets

Daughter and I happen to see the food bazaar in Glorietta last Sunday and espied this stall selling chocolates. Actually, what attracted us are the nice wrappers ... then the flavors!

After playing (or was it watching) Kingdom Hearts last year, daughter's been bugging me about Sea Salt Ice Cream. I guess Sea Salt Chocolate is the next best thing! ;)


So we bought a bar of Sea Salt chocolate and another bar- Peppermint Chocolate (I love chocolate mints). A bar costs P50, not bad and its locally made too.



We first tried the Sea Salt Dark Chocolate or rather, dark chocolate with sea salt. Wow! Love at first bite. Even hubby enjoyed it. I love how the sea salt breaks the creaminess of the chocolate. Another wow factor is that the texture is very smooth, no grainy bits.

As for the Peppermint Dark Chocolate, I love the minty flavor but I find the chocolate sweet and not dark chocolatey-ish. Texture is similar to the other one. Thumbs up!

Both flavors lack the bitterness of dark chocolate though but I'd still give it a thumbs up. And by the way, the smooth texture is similar to Serg's! Haha. Serg's was a childhood favorite so I'm not sure if all of you are familiar with it especially the young one's. ;)

You can find Unit 16 Sweets on facebook.

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.
