Bistro Ravioli

I've been hearing a lot of great food reviews about Bistro Ravioli but wasn't able to dine until early this month. The restaurant's been in the business for years already and they've gained a steady flow of loyal ravioli enthusiasts since then.

So what's a ravioli?


A ravioli is a small pasta pocket filled with meat or vegetable or cheese. Its the Italian version of a dumpling. ;)

Although Bistro Ravioli has been the purveyor of fresh raviolis in the metropolis (those not in can), they also serve other delectable Italian dishes. I visited their SM Mall of Asia branch during the launch of the SM MOA International Food Festival and was able to taste their specially created Chorizo Ravioli with Creole Shrimp in Vodka Cream Sauce.


I also like the restaurant's "open" kitchen where diners can see (and take photos) of the chef and sous chef, and other staff preparing the food.



We started our meal with bread and a cheesy dip. I love the dip but I was eyeing the pizza so I wasn't really able to enjoy this.



Garlic Clam Supreme, P490. Its a brick-oven baked pizza topped generously with garlic and clams. So good! A pizza baked in a brick-oven has this smokey tastes that brings out the flavor of the pizza. Of course, clams and garlic is a perfect pair.




Diablo Wings, P280. Really fiery! This chicken wings is not for the faint-hearted. Guaranteed to make you steam. Water please!




Spicy Chorizo Pizza, P450. A unique creation although I've already tried chorizo in pasta but this is the first time for me to eat a chorizo pizza. I am not overly fond of chorizos because they tend to be oily and has this oily aftertaste but the ones on this pizza is different. The herbs and spices overpowered the chorizo taste. Thumbs up!




Overall, it was a very filling experience and I'm glad that I was invited to join the SM MOA International Food Festival. And by the way, this food festival is still until the end of September so better visit your favorite restaurants at MOA so that you can sample their specially prepared dish.

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.
