CEBU: Michel's Deli + Cafe

Michel's Deli + Cafe is managed by the same owners of La Vie Parisienne. Unlike La Vie Parisienne, Michel's has a much more casual appearance compared to its sister. I chanced upon this deli because it is just beside the restaurant where we ate a very late lunch.


Michel's Deli + Cafe is located in Banilad, Cebu which I think is fast becoming a restaurant hub.


The food and drinks selections rivals that of Santi's here in Manila. Also, the prices at Michel's are affordable although there are also expensive ones.


There's also a comfy spot if you want to have tea, coffee, soda or wine. I'd love to bring my book here and sit in one corner as I sip wine, and eat cheese and bread.


I've already had a bottle of their sparkling wine in Manila and since my friend's sister just celebrated her birthday, I got her a bottle of raspberry flavored wine. Sante!


I also managed to buy some bread before heading off to the hotel.


Freshly baked breads! I'm in bread heaven since I need to eat carbs also (I'm on a no-rice diet).


Here are just some of the wine selections at Michel's Deli + Cafe.

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.
