NEW RESTO ALERT: Leann's Tea House

The name doesn't sound like a Korean restaurant which Leann's Tea House is but after the initial shock and seeing the menu, you'll know that you're in the right place.

Having only opened last April, this restaurant has already gained its share of loyal patrons.








Japchae. I guess most Filipinos are very familiar with this as much as we love our pansit, spaghetti and ramen. However, the secret to a good Japchae is how the noodles are cooked and of course, how the ingredients are blended.



Tonkatsu Kimbap. Kimbap is a favorite snack in Korea and we all know tonkatsu. I think this is a brialliant fusion idea and everyone at my table loved this. I was tempted to have a bite but if you've read my previous posts, then you know that I quit eating rice.



Ojinguh Bokkeum. This is a spicy squid dish although I'm glad that its not that spicy. I super love this and ate more than a fair share. It also has a generous portion of squid versus the veggies. Thumbs up!



Fried Mandu. Quite good actually.



Pajeon. I am a fan of pajeon although I can't seem to replicate this at home. Glad that Leann's have this. And it has seafood bits also- shrimp, clam, and squid. Love this!





Samgyeopsal. So we grilled meat ... errrrr, I think I grilled the meat and they just ate. But it was fun minus the "meaty-smokey-smell" that clings to you afterwards. What's nice about having samgyeopsal is that its a great-bonding activity and guaranteed to make the dining experience much more memorable.





Seafood Doengjang Jjigae. Another favorite. I love the rich spicy broth. Yum!



Bibimbap. All you need to do is add some of the red paste and then mix everything and have a spoonful or two.



A good and filling meal always end with sweet smiles and dessert. These are free, by the way. I love the one of the left which is French Vanilla as compared to the blue one which is Vanilla. French Vanilla happens to be sweeter.

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.
