Dinner At Korean Palace

Hubby's been craving for some authentic Korean food so we found ourselves going to Malate, Manila to satisfy his tummy. His current favorite Korean resto is Korean Palace.

Like all other Korean restaurants, ban chan (side dishes) is served as soon as the customer sat down. We were given eight choices (pickled ampalaya, sayote, potato, beansprouts, radish kimchi, baguio beans, spicy dilis, and cabbage kimchi). I particularly liked the spicy dilis and ampalaya.


This is one of the oldest Korean restaurants in town and has its own loyal patrons including tourists. The restaurant is a favorite place of families, groups, couples, and even lone diners.



We wanted to order squid for grilling but the staff suggested that we get this sizzling squid instead. For the same price, it has vegetables already and serving portion is the same. Thumbs up! We requested for the dish to be mildly spiced since daughter is not fond of spicy food. The squid was super tender and this is really a great tasting dish. I just can't seem to remember the name.


Galbi Tang. Hubby's favorite Korean dish. Its basically beef bulalo soup with some noodles. Serving is good for 3 pax and has generous chunks of tender beef. This is not spicy. Thumb up!


Beef Bulgogi. We have the option to grill this ourselves but I just requested the staff to grill it for us- hehehe. It comes with a basket of lettuce, and bean paste. You can also include kimchi from the ban chan inside the wrap. Yummers!!!






They don't have any dessert on the menu but we were given complimentary apple slices. The last time we were there, we got watermelon and apple slices.

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. ;)
