RECIPE: TKG's 30-Minute Pasta

Here's an easy-to-prepare pasta recipe that I usually cook whenever we crave for it but doesn't really have the time (and the ingredients) to prepare a gourmet pasta dish. I usually use whatever ingredients I can find inside the fridge and pantry. I do however, always have a pack of pasta sauce and pasta in the pantry for emergency cravings.



Ingredients:

300g fusilli pasta
1 pack Clare Ole Filipino Style Pasta Sauce
250g cocktail hotdog
1 medium size onion, minced
olive oil
water (optional)
salt
ground black pepper
garlic powder
dried basil
cumin (optional)
grated quezo de bola


Boil the pasta until al dente. While waiting for it to cook, mince the onion, and slice the hotdog into desired length. Strain the pasta once its cooked and set aside. In a pan, cook the hotdog in water first before adding some oil and onion. Stir fry but be careful not to brown it. Add the tomato sauce and dilute with water. Add some black pepper, garlic powder, basil, and cumin. I like adding cumin to my meat pasta dishes because it enhances the flavor, and smells nice too! Allow the sauce to boil for a while before adding the pasta. Grate some quezo de bola and you're all set.

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. ;)
