Degustación at Ilustrado

Ilustrado Restaurant is offering a special Degustacion Menu this month until November 30 to mark its 27th year. Ilustrado is a Filipino-Spanish Heritage restaurant that is aptly located in historical Intramuros, Manila. Set inside the Walled City, Ilustrado Restaurant also exudes the era from its architecture, interiors and of course, the food.


Having grown up in the kitchen full good old comfort food, Chef Bernice Pimentel used that to create a 7-course Degustacion Menu that includes Kilawin Salad with Fried Wonton Chips, Mangoes and Apples; Sinigang Risotto served with Grilled Shrimp, Cherry Tomatoes and fried Eggplant; Chicken Binakol Consomme with Coconuts and Green Papaya served with Crackling Chili Leaf; Dalandan and Rosemary Ice Drop; Thrice-cooked Bagnet with Dark Chocolate Kare-Kare and Blanched Edamame; Baked Duck Breast on Balsamic Vinegar Adobo with Kwek-Kwek and Squid Ink Tuile; and Dayap Cheesecake Lumpia with Citrus Fruit Salad.


The special Ilustrado Degustacion Menu is available for lunch or dinner until November 30, 2016. Ilustrado Restaurant is located at 744 General Luna Street, Intramuros, Manila. Tel- 527.2345. You may also drop by at Solstice by Ilustrado, Ground Floor, 8 Rockwell, Rockwell Drive, Makati. Tel- 802.1891

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity! 

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
