NEW RESTO ALERT: Tuan Tuan Chinese Brasserie

Been hearing good reviews about Tuan Tuan Chinese Brasserie in SM Megamall but since we don't really frequent that mall, we haven't dined at Tuan Tuan until early this year and not in SM Megamall but at the restaurant's new branch in Powerplant Mall.


Met up with college friends and their kids the day after New Year at Power Plant Mall and we all agreed to have lunch at Tuan Tuan Chinese Brasserie.

The interiors are lovely but the restaurant was quite full when we dined so I wasn't able to take photos except this wall near our table.


Crispy Barbeque Pork Snow Buns, P148. Tastes good but you need to eat it while its warm otherwise, the outer layer tends to harden up if it gets cold. The meat filling is flavorful and has the right amount of spice. I can't wait to try the one with duck next time.


U.S. Angus Steak with Black Pepper Sauce and Mushrooms, P388. My daughter ordered this, anything with "steak" is okay with her. Order is good for sharing although she was able to wipe it all out. The meat is tender and I like the black pepper sauce. Thumbs up!


House Special Trio ((Baked Seafood Wild Mushroom/Pork Chop), P398. Looks unflattering but it is quite delicious. A nice mix of healthy (fish) and indulgent (pork chop) dish. Serving is good for sharing also.


Horlicks Milk, P88. Weren't thinking of ordering drinks since we plan to have dessert at The Dessert Factory but when I saw this on the menu, wow! Horlicks brought back a lot of happy childhood memories. The cup and saucer are also photogenic and Instagramable. After having a cup of this, I am now bent on finding a jar of Horlicks. ;)


Here's the 'Burp Team.' :D

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.
