Australian Oranges - Now In Season

The Australian Embassy, along with Citrus Australia recently launch "Australian Oranges- Now in Season" at Bondi & Bourke in Makati City. Aside from the launch, the guests were also treated to a cooking demo by Chef Wade Watson of Bondi & Bourke, Chris Everingham of the Philippine Volcanoes, Fely Irvine and Iya Villania.



"We are delighted to share Australia's quality, safe and sweet oranges with Filipinos. Like Australians, Filipinos know their fruit and enjoy a strong fruit culture," said Australian Ambassador to the Philippines Bill Twedell. "Australia's pristine growing environment and stringent food safety standards ensure that Australian oranges are of superior quality."


Chef Wade said that oranges can be enjoyed not only as a healthy delicious and snack, and not just as a fruit with vitamin C. It can also be used as an ingredient in a range of sweet and savoury recipes. Oranges have long been considered a valuable part of a healthy and nutritious diet. It is well established that nutrients in citrus promote health and provide protection against chronic disease.


Here's Chef Wade's quick and easy recipe of grilled chicken and oranges.

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.
