NEW RESTO ALERT: Sultan Mediterranean Grill

We were craving for something new so we ended up at Sultan Mediterranean Grill along Wilson Street in San Juan. That area in San Juan is really becoming a foodie haven, so many restaurant choices now.

Parking is a bit tricky though because it only has space for about two cars. We parked across the street. Luckily, it was a holiday so the street is not that busy. Otherwise, securing a parking spot is difficult.


Daughter can't resist order iced tea. It was home-brewed and tastes good.


I had the yogurt shake that costs P80. This comes in a tall glass and I had a hard time finishing all of it. Quite delicious, and really tasted like yogurt! Not that sweet. Thumbs up!


Here are the garlic/yogurt and spicy sauce. We didn't like it though. The garlic/yogurt sauce doesn't really taste garlicky and the spicy sauce was just okay.


So here's what we ordered---- Special Kabab Plate, P300. Really, the serving is huge and good for sharing. Flavorful so all is forgiven about the ungarlicky garlic-yogurt sauce. I'm quite amazed that daughter finished all of this, including the rice. Wow!


I had the Beef Kofta, P220 although I am keen to try the shawarma. Huge beef kofta balls. It is flavorful also but doesn't have that abundance of mediterranean spices. This order came with a big pita bread. Yummy nonetheless!!!


Braised Lamb Shanks, P550. The meat is tender and tasted really good. Same comment that it lacks generous amount of spices.



All in all, we're happy and full especially from the yogurt shake which is kinda sulit for the price of P80. The garlic yogurt sauce needs improvement though, otherwise, they can just say its yogurt sauce. :)

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. ;)
