Dinner With Good Friends at Mario's

One of the nicest things about close friends is that you may not see each other as often as you like but when you do, it means long hours of "chikahan" and "kainan." Of course, going to a nice restaurant that serves good and wholesome ambiance is also a factor to consider since most of the time, we have our kids with us.


We had Baked Oysters for appetizers. You'll know that the chikahan is gonna be great when there's oysters. ;)


Gambas. The kids love this! The shrimp is succulent and juicy. Best paired with rice.


Roast Beef with mashed potato. Daughter had this. Love at first bite, according to her.


Pan-grilled Gindara. For the health-conscious, but really, this is delish! Squeeze in some lemon on top, and take a sip of white wine, and you're all set for a great evening.


Lengua with mashed potatoes. I love this. the lengua is so tender.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.


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.
