Jolly University In Letran College

On its second year, the Jolly University Tour this 2015 goes to 15 competing schools and one of them is Letran College in the walled city of Intramuros. Colegio de San Juan de Letran is quite a popular school and its been around for ages. Think Jose Rizal.


The Jolly University Tour aims to promote not only culinary lessons but also aims to bring about the creativity of the competing teams within the school. The winning team would then compete with the other schools to win the cook-off challenge and join the Jolly University Boot Camp.


Chef Mitchie Sison points out that "passion" is very important in order for one to be successful in life. There's also the need to fire that passion because without any action, your dream to succeed will just go to waste.


Here are the Letran College cook-off contenders:




Ms. Nina Daza- Puyat, EIC of Appetite Magazine gave the future chefs and the chefs-at-heart some encouraging words about cooking and promoting Filipino food in other countries. She also stresses that the world is now ready to embrace Filipino cuisine with open arms as what happened in Spain when she attended a food expo there.


Here's the winning team- Queen Mary Ann Boliche, Acel Jeff Beso, and Cyril Jerome Manning. Congratulations !!!

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. ;)
