NEW RESTO ALERT: Giovanni's Bar & Ristorante

The Araneta Cubao area is fast becoming competitive when it comes to food choices so its no wonder that an authentic (yes, authentic) Italian bistro opened up recently at the Manhattan Parkway, the new condo right after the LRT station.

Giovanni's Bar & Ristorante is owned by Signore Giovanni who is married to a lovely Filipina. This is their newest baby.


The bistro takes pride in its brick oven that produces mouthwatering pizzas. Delizioso!

He also makes the dough himself and if you're a pizza-lover like me, you'll notice that the dough tasted different from other other pizza places in the metropolis. Pizzas costs between P200-P300, with a few exception like P450 for the Bufala (two thumbs up for this), P430 for the Stracchino and 1/2 Metro (1/2 meter pizza where you can combine three different toppings). Pasta and dessert are also offered as well as wine.

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.
