Pegi Waffles: More Than Just Waffles

Pegi Waffles has been around for ages. I mean, they've been around since the late 90's although they don't have any more branches in the malls. We've been a fan of their waffles way back then but I didn't know that their store in P. Guevara is still open until I got invited to attend their food tasting courtesy of ZomatoPh.


I didn't have to think twice about accepting the invitation since I used to love their waffles. I know the taste by heart. Promise. Also, I'm curious about their cafe.




These are the famous dessert waffles (from top - clockwise) Pegi's Classic (with gelato), Salted-Caramel Waffle, Banana-Cookie Butter Waffle, and Choco-Almond Waffle. Their bestseller is the salted-caramel but all flavors are delish!


Fried Puff Cheese Ravioli, P220. I love these cheese ravioli and the tomato salsa. The salsa adds some punch and flavor to the already yummy cheese ravioli. Its like you're expecting something to happen but there's still a surprise as soon as the burst of salsa flavors blends with the cheese.


Beef Salpicao, P350. Beef is always love! And the fried rice looks so good, I can't help but drool ... hahaha. So sorry I stopped eating rice.



Shrimp Fettuccine, P195. Thick and freshly made pasta- yum!


Spinach Ravioli, P220. Healthy and filling ravioli. Best eaten as soon as the waiter serves your plate though. The ravioli tends to harden up because it took us ages to finish taking photos. Good for sharing.



Creamy Carbonara, P195. Believe in thy name! I mean, this is the creamiest carbonara in town. You have to visit Pegi Waffle and order this if you're a carbonara-freak like me. :)



Scones, with clotted cream and jam. The scones are really perfect on their own, but adding a generous pat of clotted cream makes it divine.




They also sell waffles, pastries, and the divine-tasting clotted cream.

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. ;)
