Cafe Velo Dome Bangkok

We were quite famished after spending hours at The Grand Palace in Bangkok and Cafe Velo Dome was the first place we saw that has a relaxing vibe.


Velo Dome regulars are mostly students from the Thammasat University. The cafe is walking distance from the Grand Palace entrance. Cafe Velo Dome has the cyclist in mind when it opened up the cafe. It encourages people to ride a bicycle.



Because it was so hot outside, we can't resist ordering ice-cream.


Mocha frost.


Coconut pudding. Similar to our maja blanca.


Thai Iced Tea.


Here's what I ate- ham and cheese sandwich and santol sorbet. I love the santol sorbet because it really tastes like santol and even has some fruit bits. It would've been nice if it comes with bagoong but I tasted some rock salt in the sorbet. At first, it tasted weird but after the initial shock that this sorbet tastes like a "real" santol fruit, I've fallen in love with it. Costs around 55 baht I think.


Vegetable salad.





Budget per pax here is between 100 - 200 baht.


P.S.
Thank you to Air Asia and Nikon Philippines / Think Dharma for inviting me to Bangkok. :)

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.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
