Cherry Shaw Is Now Open

Cherry Shaw's reopening has been nostalgic for me. I grew up near the area and this grocery is quite memorable as I've spent countless trips here with my parents. My happiness then was filling the cart with cookies, chocolates, and other goodies that attracted me as a child, whereas my mother tried to quickly put it back on the shelf when I'm not looking. And when my daughter Isabel was old enough to accompany me in my grocery trips, I actually did the same routine of removing some items from the cart- hahaha. Me and my cousins also spent numerous grocery shopping dates at Cherry Foodarama, then having some quick snack there. I also remember the "castanas" stall because my father always asked me to buy him a kilo or two.


And after months and months of waiting for Cherry to open at its new and bigger location (just several steps away from the old location), Cherry Shaw finally opens its doors once again, and this time, they are staying for good.

The new Cherry Shaw is now managed by SM Markets, and has a wider array of offerings such as fresh fruits, vegetables, meat & poultry, seafood, grocery items which includes Tesco products, a favorite brand in the UK, home, furniture and appliances section, and a whole lot more. There will also be a bills payment counter for the shoppers added convenience and Watsons Pharmacy. What's more, Cherry Shaw has a bigger parking space for everyone.

Grocery shopping at the new Cherry Shaw is also very nice since the aisles are wide, spacious, and well-lit.

Aside from offering a whole new experience of grocery shopping, Cherry Shaw also has a foodcourt aptly called- FOODarama. And Elars Lechon will open at the foodcourt soon. Yes!



Aside from Cherry Shaw, Cherry Congressional is also set to open this week. The new Cherry stores promise to deliver excellent customer service accompanied by a wide range of products to its shoppers. The old Cherry stores also had a make-over to keep up with the times and continue delivering satisfaction to their loyal customers.

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. ;)
