Discovering Big Bowl Noodles

A few days prior to 2017 Chinese New Year, I joined some blogger friends on a walking and eating tour around Manila Chinatown and one of the restaurants that we discovered was Big Bowl Noodles. The place was along Yuchengco Street coming from Ongpin and just beside the Kwan Yin Temple.


Big Bowl Noodles is housed in an old building so don't expect some post interiors. It is just your typical canteen set-up.


Of course, as the name suggests, noodles are highlighted on the menu. I ordered the Beef Brisket Noodles. I really can't remember the price but it costs around P120 and it was served in a big bowl, literally. Good for 2-3 pax if you are ordering other dishes. Tastes okay, the noodles are freshly made and the broth flavorful. The meat itself is chewy and needs more boiling time imho. But for the price, I am definitely not complaining.


Stir-fried Seafood Noodles. Price is around P120 also. Flavorful. This was wiped-out in seconds. Or maybe we were all hungry? ;)


Siomai. Nothing fancy but tummy filling.


Here's what the resto looks inside. See that pink pipe on the right? That's where the waiting staff places the order (there's a container below that pipe) and then someone from the kitchen above pulls it up. Haha cool!

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.
