Sweet Treats at Pia Y Damaso

There are a lot of dessert choices from cakes, ice cream, chocolates, but most of the time, good ol' Filipino "panghimagas" are still the best. Here are some of the yummylicious dessert offerings of Pia Y Damaso.

Looks can be deceiving. I almost didn't get to taste this because we still have some waffle at home but this Bibingka Waffle is really a "bibingka" waffle. And I love bibingka and Christmas. ;) This bibingka waffle is topped with salted egg and quezo de bola, with jojo jam. It would've been nice if there's some grated coconut to complete the bibingka experience but this is a masterpiece of its own. Thumbs up.



Sisa's Dementia is a sinfully-looking chocolate cake that will make you forget of past injustices. Sisa is a character from Noli Me Tangere and this cake evokes erases all poignant memories. This is a love moist chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and dark chocolate mousse.


Goat Milk Leche Flan. No one can refuse leche flan and this one from Pia Y Damaso uses goat's milk and has a generous "dayap" flavor so the flavor is much more intense


Pepay, The Dancer Halo Halo. Hurray for Pepay's halo halo. It has all the yummy ingredients that a halo halo should have: ube, leche flan, beans, saba, langka, pastillas, and goat's milk. Yummy!


Brazo ni Dona Vicki. Dona Vicki refers to Dona Victorina in Noli Me Tangere. This brazo de mercedes is sweetened just right, with the perfect blend of meringue and egg custard. I'd love to pair this with tea. :)

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.
