NEW RESTO ALERT: Dekada

This new restaurant in Fairview Terraces pays homage to Filipino heroes and momentous events from the Spanish era to the 50's till the 90's.

And it also happen to be that we dined at Dekada last August 21 so its a historical day too. Care to guess why August 21st is a National Holiday in the Philippines ;)





The interior is a combination of vintage with a modern twist.



Citrus Salad. So refreshing. I can eat several bowls of this.



Milo Godzilla. I highly recommend this especially if you love chocolates, milo and sweets. Two thumbs up!



Binagoongan Fried Rice. I love binagoongan fried rice but sadly, I suddenly stopped eating rice for almost two months now. The urge to taste is so great since but I forced myself to look the other way and saw the kare-kare. Hahaha.


Kare-Kare. I seldom enjoy kare-kare because this is really a difficult dish to master, not to mention that it takes hours to cook it. But they nailed it! The oxtail was very soft and gelatinous (the way I like it) and the peanut sauce is real peanut creamy (you know what I mean, not the powdered one).



Boneless Crispy Pata. I was really focused on the kare-kare. Sorry. :D




Dilis Fried Rice.



Roast Chicken. Fall-off-the-bone roast chicken. Very flavorful with hints of herbs and spices. No need for the dipping sauce because it will just ruin the taste- trust me on this. This is my second favorite dish here, the first is the kare-kare.



Puto Bumbong. You can order your puto bumbong fix here without waiting for the Christmas season because its available all year round. I just don't like the cheese, grated coconut and muscovado sugar will do. ;)



Halo-Halo. The Filipino food experience is never complete without halo-halo. What's nice with Dekada's is that they serve it in a coconut shell and present it to you like an art piece.

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.
