CEBU: La Marea's Famous Warm Brownie Cup

What is this gargantuan octopus doing inside a restaurant? This is what came to mind when I saw this inside La Marea. But then again, I suddenly remembered that "marea" roughly means the sea, or water. So that sort of answer my question- hehe.


La Marea is a famous dessert hangout in Cebu City. The branch we went to is in Banilad area.


Here are some of the sinfully-looking cake choices at La Marea. Had I not been full (literally bursting), I would've gotten a slice. But as it is, I can just admire and drool.


Another view of the cakes and other sweet temptations!


Here's what I got- warm brownie cup. Underneath the ice cream is warm brownie. Just imagine the combination of warm brownie and cold ice cream ... simply divine. I'm glad that I was able to taste this before I left Cebu (literally). I was scheduled to fly back to Manila a few hours after my La Marea detour. Its one of the food and dining places on my list so I think I have a valid excuse. ;)

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.
