Larry's Cafe & Bar

Larry's Cafe & Bar in Serendra has been there for about a decade now and it has been serving the good food and providing the best ambiance since it first opened.



Spinach Empanaditas. For someone who is not overly fond of empanadas (yes, that's me), I'd like to say that I enjoyed these empanaditas very much. The dough is crusty and not oily (thumbs up!), and the filling is so delish it will make you eat more. Although it doesn't come with a dip or sauce, I paired my empanaditas with the tamarind sauce that came with the vegetable samosas.

Watermelon & Feta Cheese Salad. This is a very refreshing salad that has the right ingredients for that sweet & salty mix. I love how the burst of different flavors surprise you in each and every bite. Too healthy and I love it! 


Vegetable Samosas. I always associate samosas with Indian restaurants so its a lovely surprise that Larry's Cafe & Bar has it on their menu. I love samosas but found this doubly enjoyable because of the tamarind sauce. Yes, I'm going to rave about how good the tamarind sauce is. Perfect for the samosas and the empanaditas.


Eggplant Caprese. I can't eat eggplant but because my dining companions wiped this plate out, I'd say that its pretty good, too.


Baked Bone Marrow with Garlic. So here's my highlight dish at Larry's Cafe & Bar. I know its sinful and laden with calories and cholesterol and unhealthy BUT this baked bone marrow is delicious. I had mine paired with melba toast. The marrow tastes heavenly in its creaminess and the garlic balances that flavor and makes you less guilty after wiping out all the marrow. Best paired with a glass of wine, white or red.

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. ;)
