Modern Shanghai

My family and I always look forward to discovering new restaurants whenever we go to SM Mall of Asia and we're happy to have dined at Modern Shanghai. It was also almost closing time when we entered the restaurant so there's also the fear that they might not treat us well but ...


... we were ushered in with friendly smiles and led to our table facing the bay. Then I saw these cute lamps that looks like floating flowers. We were a bit distracted by them and forgot our hunger temporarily.


Beef with Scallion. Daughter was craving for beef so I ordered this for her. Portion is good for sharing. The simplicity of this dish doesn't mean its not delicious. The play of flavors in this dish will just make you crave for more.


Jellyfish. I saw this on the menu and I know that I have to order this. Hubby and I shared this, I think daughter had a bite or two. However, I prefer the "other" jellyfish, the one in strips.


Yangchow Fried Rice. What's eating in a Chinese Restaurant without yangchow? Serving is good for 3-4 pax but this was wiped out by hubby and daughter.


Braised Beef Noodle Soup. I ordered a bowl since I am still not eating rice but the staff mentioned that he can split it into two. Thumbs up for the suggestion. I always love beef noodle soup and this one is now included in my favorites. Its hard to find restaurants that serves good quality and tender beef. The broth also tasted divine. Perfect for a chilly night.



Modern Shanghai was our last resto-discovery for 2014. It was already the 29th of December when we visited SM Mall of Asia and I'm glad that we had a pleasurable dining experience here. The food was delicious and warmed our tummies, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to another visit soon.

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.
