Merienda Cena At Chef Jessie Rockwell Club

Our supposedly short visit to daughter's madrina ended up with merienda cena at Chef Jessie Rockwell Club.

Salad a la Jose Mari Chan. Heart of palm on a bed of alugbati. This salad is just divine. Tastes simple yet refreshing. The fresh alugbati micro leaves has a nice crunch and the sweetish vinaigrette complements it perfectly. The "ubod" or heart of palm has a light pickled flavor that is so good I want it paired with fried fish- hehe.

Smoked Salmon and Caviar Pie. Daughter and I love this. At first, I thought that she won't like the taste of caviar but I guess she has a weird taste for a thirteen year old- haha. You may have to request for more melba toast though.

Sushi Sampler. I just had a bite of the tamago, daughter ate everything on the plate and fell in love with the pink sushi with cream cheese (I can't remember what its called).

Daughter had another round of this pink sushi. Yum yum!

Pomodoro with Seafood. We had the pasta split into two because serving is kinda huge especially after eating salad and appetizer, and the sushi! But the pasta was so delicious I can't help but enjoy every bite until my plate was already clean. The prawns are huge!

Bon appetit!

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.
