Beeffalo by Hotrocks Marikina

Its me and my daughter's first time to go to Marikina and all we did was eat- yes, eat! And braving the traffic from Makati all the way to Marikina just to eat at Beefalo by Hotrocks was so worth it.


I'm already familiar with Beeffalo since I already at their new restaurant in Antipolo. Read my food review here --- Beeffalo by Hotrocks Antipolo .

The one in Marikina has been there for quite some time. It opened in October 2013 along the Gil Fernando Avenue in Marikina City. During that time, the resto was literally surrounded by vacant lots but they were able to hurdle the obstacles of opening the new restaurant in an unpopulated area. Soon, people came seeking out the restaurant thanks to the Beeffalo's delicious and affordable dishes which became the word of mouth of those who dined there.


Seafood Chowder. A really comforting bowl of seafood goodness. Super love this with the biscuit-thin pizza.


Cheese Pizza. I love pizzas and this biscuit-thin one is so good especially when eaten as soon as it is served. Downside of this is that even if you plan to bring some home, it is not just possible because it is easy to eat the whole pizza- hahaha. Thumbs up!


Gindara Steak. A healthier alternative to meat but really delicious. The fish has retained its juiciness even if its grilled. Best paired with mashed potatoes though (I don't eat rice). ;)


T-Bone Steak. Guess who ordered this! Not me but I had a bite and its perfect.


Coffee Creme Brulee. This came as a surprise since I was expecting a coffee-flavored creme brulee but was pleasantly astonished to discover that the creme brulee sits on top of hot coffee jelly. Its like having your dessert and coffee at the same time. Must have at Beeffalo.


Other sumptuous dishes of Beeffalo by Hotrocks are Sizzling Beef Ribs in Tamarind Gravy, Taco BBQ Salad, and the Beeffalo Wings with Bleu Cheese Dip.

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. ;)


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.
