Delectable Desserts at Recipes Specialties & Sweets

I have high respect for restaurants who serve consistent tasting (delicious and memorable) dishes throughout the years and one of them is Recipes Restaurant in Greenbelt. It's been one of our favorite restaurant in the area since daughter was still in her toddler years- no kidding.


I always associate Recipes Restaurant with Crispy Tilapia and Gising-Gising (next photo). These two dishes was really stuck to my memory that it becomes a regular routine to order them whenever we visit the restaurant. The crispy tilapia was so good and crispy that there was a time I tried replicating it in my kitchen. Of course, I also had a hard time convincing the staff from the grocery who cleans the fish to fillet the tilapia for me. Anyways, I only had one attempt with the crispy tilapia ... I realized that its easier to just order it at Recipes. And the "sawsawan" or dipping sauce is quite good also. You can just request for a "sili" if you like it spicy.


So here is the Gising-Gising. Like the crispy tilapia, this dish also found its way into my kitchen- hahaha. But then again, I prefer eating this dish at Recipes. I believe that these two dishes are one of the popular ones and all-time bestseller at the restaurant.


Truth be told, the other dishes at Recipes are quite good also- the kare-kare, General's Chicken, etc. But everyone has a favorite and mine happens to be the crispy tilapia and gising-gising.

I know Recipes doesn't serve desserts but when they opened their latest branch in Greenhills, they added a special corner for sweets and coffee.

Barako Brownie. This is the perfect dessert to end a meal at Recipes. It's like you're having coffee and dessert at the same time. Very smooth. Yum!


Rocky Road Cookies. Kids and the not-kids will surely enjoy a cookie or three of these. It's hard to stop at just one.


Red Velvet Cupcakes. My daughter is quite an expert when it comes to anything red velvet gave this cupcake her nod.


Calamansi Tart. And I thought I love the Barako Brownie but after a bite of this Calamansi Tart, I realized that I'm smitten! I am not fond of anything citrus but this has the perfect blend of sugar and calamansi that it made me forget that I'm eating calamansi tart. And it's not too sweet just in case you're wondering if it is sugar-laden. This is a must-order dessert when you visit Recipes Greenhills. 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.

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.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
