Lucky Rainbow Seafood Restaurant

Lucky Rainbow is one of Manila Chinatown's best kept secret restaurant. The place was not that full as we expected it to be the night before Chinese New Year. My friends (along with our kids) was suppose to dine in another resto but we fear the crowd and we have hungry kids in tow.


Here are some of the food we ordered:

Mushroom Siomai, P88. Its good and you can actually taste the mushroom. It is also lightly salted which I like.


Hakaw, P88. Haven't tasted this but since the hakaws got wiped out as soon as it was served, I can only guess that its good or maybe the kids were just too hungry. ;)


Pork Siomai, P78. This siomai is not really photogenic but believe me when I say that its good. Lighted salted like the mushroom siomai. Just add some chili sauce on top and you'll definitely crave for another bite. I had two servings of these. Oh my!


Hot Salad Roll, P98. This took ages before it was served but worth the wait. Inside those crispy roll is creamy fruit salad. Yum!


Chicken Curry. Daughter ordered this. The chicken is very tender and flavorful. Her plate was really clean so I think she enjoyed the food.


We also ordered Asado Siopao (so good! its 3 pcs per serving, P88), and three kinds of noodle soup which the kids ate as soon as it was serve so I wasn't able to take photos. Reason to go back! :D

Here's a photo of us, before we had our meal. Kung Hei Fat Choi !!!

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. ;)
