Choi Garden SM Megamall

It was a rainy Sunday but we're scheduled to watch a movie so we decided to just eat an early dinner before the movie. And since I was able to visit Choi Garden the previous week and fell in-love with the baked pork buns, I wanted another round.


Noodles, P200. The "pansit" tastes good and has generous amount of meat and seafood. Add a bit of chili oil to level up the taste especially if you love spicy dishes. Serving is good for 2-3 pax.


Spring Rolls, P90. This is not the usual meat or vegetable spring rolls. Its more like mushroom spring rolls. So yummy!


Asado Pork Buns, P99. Three pieces of delicious baked pork buns. If you eat it while its still warm, the bun is very soft. I just discovered that I like it better when its cold already and the bun itself hardens up a bit so that it maintains its shape when I bite into it. The asado tastes great, and I love the bun itself. Two thumbs up and its reasonably priced also.


Here's what I'm talking about when I say that I prefer to eat it several minutes after being served. I was able to literally slice it open using my fork without turning it into a crumbly mess.


Baked Seafood Rice, P268. This comes with a free glass of iced tea. Daughter ordered this and since she was able to finish most of it, I guess its good.


Roast Duck Rice Topping, P280. Hubby's order. We had it reheated because hubby arrived late. I'm not sure if that's the reason why the skin is not that crispy anymore. But hubby was able to finish all of it so  I guess its okay. Its best though to eat it as soon as it is served and not reheated.


Here's the best part -- Make Your Own Shabu Shabu Noodle Bowl, P388.
Step 1: Choose from four types of noodles
Step 2: Choose the soup
Step 3: Select 3 toppings from 12 yummy choices such as asado meat, HK beef ball and beef brisket

Of course, if you are feeling lost on what to do with your noodle bowl, the staff will happily help you out. This bowl comes with a glass of iced tea and taro dessert.

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. ;)
