Delightful Thai Dishes at Thaipan

Thaipan has been one of the longest running restaurants in the Scout Area of Quezon City and it is a known fact that a restaurant wouldn't survive that long if it is not good. I've been to Thaipan three years ago and has visited the restaurant a couple of times since then but never came back for a long time since I don't really frequent that part of the city.


Thaipan has numerous delicious dishes but I'm sharing my personal favorites:

Mieng Kham. These are grated roasted coconut with spices and served on Betel leaf. Really, really good and healthy. And had I not read the description on the menu, I wouldn't have thought that its coconut.


Tom Yum Kung. Hot and sour broth with prawns and straw mushrooms. Super good especially if you love spicy dishes. The burst of flavors are simply amazing. Definitely one of the best Tom Yum I've tasted around the Metro.


Pla Lad Prik Sam Ros or Fish Tamarind. The first time I tried this, I was like ---- WOW !!! I still felt the same about this dish after not having gone to Thaipan for a long time. Aside from the fish, I also love the crispy basil leaves. Thumbs up!


Soft Shell Crab in Black Pepper Sauce. This dish will make you want to eat more rice. Great as pica-pica also.


Pandan Chicken. This is one of the popular Thai dishes that every one loves, including me. The meat is already flavorful so its best not to dip it in chili sauce, but it's really up to you.


Ta Koh Sakhoo. Steamed tapioca. Not that sweet but its a great dessert to cap off a nice Thai meal at Thaipan.

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.
