NEW RESTO ALERT: Phat Pho Vietnamese Kitchen

I love noodles so when I espied this noodle place in Powerplant Mall, I dragged my family there for dinner.


I'm already familiar with Phat Pho having dined at their restaurant in Banilad, Cebu. What I like about the restaurant at the Powerplant Mall is that it as a "streetfood" vibe to it- from the tables, chairs, and decors. Think "sosyal" na "carinderia" in a mall.


Angus Beef Satay. Costs around P240 and its only three sticks but OMG, it is so good! Beef is very tender (well, hello Angus!) and flavorful, too. Don't bother with the satay sauce, just enjoy the beef because it is flavorful enough. 


Bun Bo Hue, P220. Hubby ordered this. It is a bit "spicier" than the regular Pho although the reddish color came from the anatto seeds. The traditional Bun Bo Hue also has pork blood in it but since I haven't tasted it, I really can't tell. But hubby finished all of it so it must be good. :)


Here's my Pho Bo which cost P220 also. Daughter ordered a similar bowl so no need for photo. She was already slurping when I took this photo. Very filling although I think that the flavor of the herbs were a bit lacking. Can't wait to have another bowl again though. Maybe I should just bring my own coriander. ;)


The noodles come in small or large bowls. What we got are the small ones, but these bowls are definitely more filling than those of its competitors. I also saw some friend spring rolls on the menu which I plan to order next time. I'm sure its going to be delish!

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. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.
