Beaujolais Wine Dinner At The Sofitel

For the second year, the Sofitel Philippine Plaza and Le Cellier hosted a special Beaujolais Wine Dinner for special guests and was also graced by Monsieur Yves-Dominique Ferraud of P. Ferraud & Fils. The wine dinner was held a few days after the annual worldwide Beaujolais Nouveau celebration.



Fresh from his Vietnam trip where Monsieur Ferraud also attended a Beaujolais Wine Event, he was happy to note that there's a steady growth of wine enthusiasts in the Philippine market.


Monsieur Ferraud is a 5th generation winemaker from the Beaujolais Region of France. Being one of the last few family companies in the wine business, he hoped to continue the legacy for more generations to come. P. Ferraud & Fils wines includes- Beaujolais Villages, Fleurie, Moulin A Vent, Brouilly, Macon Villages, St. Veran, Pouilly Fuisse, and many more.


With some of the best wines from the 200 year old cellar of Monsieur Ferraud in France, combined with the great food that Spiral is known for, guests were treated to a fantastic dinner. Of course, one must not forget that Sofitel Philippine Plaza is the only 5-star hotel in the country with its very own cheese room.


Cheers to Monsieur Ferraud and P. Ferraud & Fils!

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.
