12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub

So this is where I had my first dinner of the year. I had a scheduled dinner date with my mommy friends from school and we all agreed to meet at Century Mall because we haven't been there yet. Actually, we were planning to eat in another restaurant but it was full when we arrived so we ended up at 12 Monkeys.


It was a bit funny because we were checking the menu for dinner but what they have are mostly food that is usually paired with drinks. Haha.

But that didn't deter us from ordering. My friend had the beef pares, another friend the lechon kawali set, and I had the fried chicken.

Food tastes good. Thumbs up! Affordable, too and big portions. Two thumbs up! They also have a band that performs from 10pm onwards.


Beef Pares. Beef was tender and flavorful. Reminds me of my fave beef pares from RK.


Fried Chicken, half order. Tastes like Max's- no kidding. Except that it has some corn and carrots and chives. This is love!


Lechon Kawali. My friend was able to finish this big serving so I'm guessing its good. ;)



Of course, a good dinner is not complete without some drinks so had a short trek to 71 Gramercy.

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. ;)
