Baguio Food Tour 2015: Grumpy Joe

This is a yummy pizza discovery introduced to us by Vincent of LakbayBaguio.com


It was our last night at Azalea Residences because all are going back to Manila except me (annual summer vacation with the family) and we all feel like just staying at the hotel and rest. Then Vincent hit upon the idea of a pizza party and ordered a box of Grumpy Joe's Five-Cheese pizza for all of us plus Seafood Pesto Pasta (sorry no pasta photo).

The play of five different cheeses in the pizza worked its magic. I mean, I love pizza and I can eat it every day but this pizza now belongs to my top 5 best pizza. The dough is thick but soft. It is chewy and lightly salted so that one will be able to enjoy the pizza's toppings without compromise. Bon appetit!



These lovely girls agree that Grumpy Joe's Five-Cheese pizza is definitely the best pizza in the whole wide world ... er, Baguio City! ;)

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. ;)
