MXT's Special Mooncakes

A mooncake is a special kind of pastry filled with red bean or lotus seed paste. It may also contain salted yolk or nuts. This is usually given to family and friends during the Mooncake Festival which is celebrated by the Chinese community around the world during the eight lunar month (in Chinese calendar) which usually falls during September or October.

And because its Mooncake Festival, I'd like to share these yummy mooncake finds from MXT (Maxim's Tea House).


These mooncakes comes in a special tin box and comes in four flavors: monggo, monggo with yolk, lotus, and lotus with yolk. Personally, I love the lotus mooncake, with or without the yolk.

Mooncakes are usually given to maintain harmony and unity among family and friends. Hence, it is nice to give mooncakes.


And thru the years, the tradition of giving mooncake continues but it has also evolved into a gastronomic delight. The flavors also evolved too-- from red bean and lotus paste, MXT now offers ube, chocolate, and egg custard flavor.


The ones on the photo below are mini-mooncakes. I love the ube and the chocolate. So if you're giving me one, you already know what flavors I like *hint* *hint*  :)


The Deluxe Gift Set (4 large mooncakes) costs 490 as well as the Petite (mini-mooncakes, 8 pcs).




You can get these mooncakes from MXT branches around Metro Manila: Onpin, SM Sta Mesa, SM Fairview, SM Sucat, SM North EDSA

  1. Can't wait to try MXT's ube and chocolate mooncakes! I've had MXT mooncakes before and they are the best hands down.

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.
