This coming November 29, 2014, Chef George Lizares of the famed LJC Group of Restaurants will share special recipes as a tribute to Larry Cruz of the iconic restaurants such as Cafe Adriatico, Bistro Remedios, and Cafe Havana.

Entitled "A Christmas Dinner Larry Would Love," Chef George will prepare Cheerful Feta and Watermelon Salad; Kingfish and Shrimp Curry in Coconut; Chicken with Three Mushrooms; Couscous with Seven Vegetables; and Baklava.

The recipes are a tribute to the late Larry Cruz, founder of LJC Group. Chef George started working for the LJC Group in 1998 as an F&B manager. He is now the corporate executive chef of LJC.

Aside from LJC Group, he also worked for the Bistro Group, Julius Maggie Kitchen, Taal Vista Hotel, Camp John Hay, and many others both here and abroad.

To quote Larry Cruz- "A good meal is one that satisfies all the senses ... More than just looking good, it has to taste good ... match the setting ... More important for me, it should be enjoyed with someone."

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.

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.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
