71 Gramercy

My first "gimik" of the year was last January 2 and me and my dates ended up on the highest bar/lounge in town. I've already been to 71 Gramercy thrice but that was to attend an event. This time, the intention was to have a real good time with friends. :)


But before we went to 71 Gramercy, we had dinner at 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub.

I had Lychee Martini and my friend ordered something blue. Another friend had a refreshing glass of lime water- hahaha. We paired the drinks with calamares.

I love my drink. Thumbs up to the bartender! The blend of martini and lychee was perfect and delicious! My friend also enjoyed her blue drink. Even the calamares was perfect. The batter was crunchy and the squid soft. Amazingly good. Value for money and its not even that expensive.



It was a lovely night, a bit chilly, but we all had fun. The only downside was the lack of chairs. There was a party that time and every tables we already reserved-- boo hoo hoo.




N.B.
Walk-in guests (like us that night) were required to pay first for the food and drinks being ordered. Dress code is casual chic.

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
