Baguio Food Tour 2015: Foodies at The Hub

Foodies at The Hub is a two-day event at the Ayala Techno Hub inside Camp John Hay. This event is a gathering of Baguio's homegrown restaurant's and chefs. What's nice about Foodies at The Hub is that its a big picnic area where family and friends can hang-out and dine and watch a live band perform for two nights. And not only that, there's also the hourly raffle wherein diners got the chance to win GCs from participating restaurants.











Food Finds @ The Hub

SPREAD by Chef Joaquin. I love the salted caramel (all-time fave), and the chocolate chili. It really does bite! Chef Joaquin encourages creativity when it comes to his special spread (or dip). He suggests using it on pasta or rice, aside from the usual crackers or chips.


Jovy's Kitchen. The yummy looking meat dish below is Adobo Strawberry. The souring-agent used in this dish is strawberry so it tastes sweetish also. A refreshingly delicious twist to our favorite adobo.


Zing! This food booth specializes in salad dressings and serves salads (vegetable). Of course, when one is in Baguio and you have an abundant year-round supply of strawberry, you just have to eat it a lot. ;)


Kung Fu Kitchen. Bacon Roll. I just had an OMG-moment upon first bite. Its so good that I had another piece. The bacon and meat-filling compliments each other well and is so flavorful. Rice please!


For Frying Out Loud. A humorous and delish take on fries ... or poutine. I don't really like chili but this one is so good I didn't bother with the other flavors. No kidding.


Ninja Pancake. This is a patty-version of okonomiyaki. It was fun watching the Japanese chef cook this pancake. Not to mention he's wearing a ninja attire.


Hygieia's Kitchen. Look at those luscious-looking cupcakes. Thumbs up!


Scale. "Bigger is always better. This food booth sells humongous burgers and sausages. Really amazing and reasonably-priced too at P100 if I'm not mistaken. Super long line!


Zushi Me. They serve ramen. I mean, I know its summer but since this is Baguio, eating ramen on a summer's day is okay.


Here's a photo of The Kitchen Goddess and Az of Azrael's Merryland. We look full already!

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. ;)


Craving For Max's Spicy Chicken

Some like it HOT! fried chicken

Max's Restaurant, the home of the famous "sarap to the bones" fried chicken introduces its newest mouthwatering Max's Spicy Chicken. Its definitely hot and delish as it is enhanced with a special chili pepper seasoning that will make you yearn for more.
