Baguio Food Tour 2015 Day 3

We all had a nice sleep the night before and promised to watch the sunrise. Alas, the warm bed vs the cold early morning air is much more enticing so we all ended up dreaming of sunrise instead. Breakfast was at Tradisyon and I was feeling quite famished when I woke up so here's what I ate ...




We had a short tour of Burnham Park after breakfast and watch the fountains. Then we're off to lunch at Mother's Garden in Upper Fairview. 


Dining at Mother's Garden is not complete without Mother's Garden Salad that has some edible flowers. I fell in love with this salad when we dined here last year. 


After a very relaxing lunch at Mother's Garden, we're off again ... this time for some sweets at Tsokolateria in Upper Session Road. We literally had our fill of chocolates. 


And because all good things must end, we all trooped back to Azalea Residences to rest and wait until 2am when its going home time for the rest of the team. But if course, we all had a slice or two of the delicious 5-cheese pizza from Grumpy Joe's. "The best pizza ever in the whole wide world." - Saki

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. ;)
