Late Lunch at Sariwon

Its been a couple of years since we last ate at Sariwon in Promenade so we're all excited to dine there again. Hubby and daughter are craving for a Korean meal and we happen to go to Greenhills and remembered Sariwon.


Read more about our first dining experience at --- Sariwon.


Banchan comes free in every Korean restaurant. Sariwon serves unlimited Banchan and it includes: lettuce salad with sesame oil vinaigrette, mashed squash, broiled kang-kang, kimchi, sweet-salty peanuts with dilis, potato cubes, and spicy sayote strips. Banchans are basically side dishes and every Korean restaurants have their own different set of Banchans.


Dwaeji Galbi, P380. These are grilled pork loins. Very tender and flavorful. Serving size is good for sharing. You may just have to ask them to cut the meat in smaller pieces or bite size pieces upon serving or you can just request scissors so that you can cut it yourself.


Ojingeo-Bokkeum, P380.  Hubby prefers seafood over meat so I got this spicy squid for him. I love how the sesame oil balances the flavor of the chili paste. The squid is also perfectly cooked (meaning it is tender).


Seolleongtang, P320. I always order bone soup whenever we dine at a Korean restaurant. Rich soup with some bones and meat with glass noodles. You can add some chili paste to make it a bit spicy. Really, really good! Must try at Sariwon.


Mandu or Mandoo, P195. Ordered Mandoo as an afterthought because the promised unlimited Banchan took ages to arrive at our table (we just requested for additional mashed squash and peanuts and we have to remind them 3-4x). These are filled with kimchi and not meat, and 3 pieces are fried and 3 pieces are steamed. The fried ones tastes better than the steamed ones because the skin tends to harden when it is steamed and then you forgot to eat it at once. Note to self: don't order this again.

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. ;)
