Joyeux Anniversaire Taters

"Life is like a box of chocolates ... you never know what you are going to get." Ms. Annie Tanchanco, Founder and President of Taters Enterprises Inc., quoted this famous line from Forrest Gump, the movie. 

Famous snack food movie kiosk Taters recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with a Le Grand 20 Anniversary Festival held at the Trinoma Activity Center in Quezon City. The whole day celebration includes exciting activities, games, surprises, and of course, our fave snacks from Taters which was generously offered during the anniversary event. 


And another good news for Taters Enterprises Inc. aside from its two decade milestone is The Philippine Quality Challenge (PQC) award that it recently got. PQC offers small medium enterprises an opportunity to be part of the Philippine Quality Awards (PQA). This recognizes organizational improvement and performance excellence on a national level to achieve world-class standards comparable to the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Awards of the US and those in Europe and Asia.



It also happens that Taters received the award in its first year of applying for PQC and it is the first company in the food industry to receive level II by the PQC. Congratulations Taters !!!

























The first Taters was just a tiny space measuring 8.5 sqm in a cramped part of a mall. The store then only carried three products- popcorn, peanuts and fries. And because at that time there were no food outlets in cinemas, Taters became an instant hit and was the first branded entertainment snack store.

Since then, Taters began to include other snack items on their store. A wide selection of toppings and dips that go great with any order, premium New York Beef Hotdogs, and healthy choices such as Tofu chips and tuna mushroom sandwiches have raised the bar for entertainment snacking in the country.



To date, Taters Enterprises Inc., has 23 outlets all over the country and still aims to expand its reach and possibilities when it comes to cinema snacks.

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.
