NEW RESTO ALERT: Artisan Emporium

Artisan Emporium is a relatively new concept store located in Estancia Mall in Pasig City. What's nice with Artisan Emporium is that aside from making their own breads, they do everything by hand- hence, the word artisan. You'd notice that the breads are not evenly shaped, the labels are all loving written by hand, the food being served also has some nice loving and tender touch.


So here are some of my fvaorites ---

Spanish bread and mini monay with choices of yogurt butter or liver pate with blueberry. I am not much into spanish bread but I do love monays, mini or not. Also, I do love liver pate so I literally slathered pate on my bread. Ang sarap! No kidding. I love the salty-creamy liver combined with the tangy-sweet blueberry. As for the yogurt butter --- I didn't realize how good it was until I had my first taste. Think buttercream! Alas, I'm still torn which between the two is my fave ...


Truffle mushroom soup. Perfect for those who are craving for some comfort food. You can either pair it with bread or as is. I am also fond of mushroom soup and its really hard to find restaurant/cafe nowadays that serves this kind of mushroom soup wherein you can actually enjoy the bits of mushroom. Thumbs up!


Chicken galantina with bread. Chicken galantina is another favorite. Artisan Emporium's chicken galantina reminds me of my lolas and mother's galantina. I did have a "ratatouille" moment during my first bite. This is a perfect meal for those who are craving for their lola or moms galantina. Better yet, treat your mom here. I bet she'll give the galantina a thumbs up :)

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. ;)


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.
