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.

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.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
