Duck & Buvette

Duck & Buvette is barely a year-old but since it opened last June 2014, it has gained quite a huge followers from foodies and non-foodies. And for those who love Shangri-La Plaza, the restaurant may be new but the owners and staff are still the same when they used to operate Cafe Provencale.





Crispy Potato Pave and Salty Duck Egg. Great appetizer. The potatoes are delicious with or without the mayo.


Here's another look at the potatoes.


Crispy Half Duck Confit. This is D&B's popular and must-order dish. The duck was crispy and flavorful. It was so tender that it falls off the bone- no kidding. Hubby enjoyed it with rice, of course while I paired it with carrots. Adding some salt (or mustard) enhances the taste and it will make you crave for more.


Here's a close-up view of the duck. Yummy!


8-Hour Angus Brisket. This is love! Daughter said she can finish a whole serving of this. The mashed potato was kinda "bitin" though so its either you get an extra order or pair it with rice. So good!


Goat Cheese Ravioli. Because I was disappointed with the ravioli I recently ate, I just have to order this to make a comparison- haha. Of course, D&B's ravioli won by a long margin. The goat cheese has a distinct taste that makes the ravioli special.

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.
