FOOD REVIEW: Clara Ole' Sauces

These Clara Ole' Sauces arrived at my doorstep recently and was very excited to whip some pasta except that we don't have any in the pantry- boo hoo hoo! So it took me a couple of days more before I was able to use it.




I've tried other Clara Ole' products such as the Original Barbeque Marinade (our fave), Three-Cheese Pasta Sauce (our fave), Italian-Style Pasta Sauce, Chunky Tomato Pasta Sauce, Kung Pao Sauce, Cheesy Pesto Sauce (our fave), etc. so I know that these packs are filled with yummy goodness.

The first one I used was the Bechamel Sauce. I opted to use shrimp since I just bought some. Also, because my daughter warned me not to cook fish fillet for her lunch "baon" in school. Haha. She got "sawa" eating fish fillet when SY 2013-2014 was about to end because I was too impatient for school to end that I just told her to buy lunch from the canteen near the school. As with other canteen's, food choices are mostly- adobo, tocino, fish fillet, sauteed vegetables. She's not much of a meat eater so she always end up having fish fillet for lunch.

Here's the recipe I created using Clara Ole' Bechamel Sauce.

What I like about the sauce was that I can readily use it even without adding herbs and spices. Its already prepared as it is so all you need is the meat or fish or vegetables. It can also be used in making lasagna (as pointed out by my daughter who loves lasagna) and other dishes that makes use of bechamel sauce. Thumbs up!

Tried using the Carbonara Sauce also and here's the carbonara recipe that I made.

Another winner here! No need to "timpla" the sauce. I just added bacon, bell pepper and mushrooms. Yummy!!!

The sauces are a goldmine for moms like me who values time but still want to prepare delicious and healthy meals for the family.

I still haven't tried the Creamy Tomato Sauce because I still can't find the right ingredients for it so stay tuned. :)

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.
