Mang Inasal's National Halo-Halo Day on March 19

Filipinos are fond of sweets and a meal is never complete without some dessert. And if ever there is such thing as a National Dessert, then ours would be Halo-Halo.



Do you know that there are many variations of halo-halo all over the Philippines? I've tasted a halo-halo with yema in Cebu, then there's the one in Pampanga that uses carabao's milk. Have you tasted the halo-halo with macaroni noodles somewhere in the Mountain Province? Or what about the famous and "sosyal" halo-halo served in Manila Peninsula Hotel?

So if you love halo-halo (which I know you do), head to Mang Inasal on March 19, 2017 and be a part of Filipino dessert history as it unveils the first ever National Halo-Halo Sarap Day.

"Filipinos love halo-halo," Mang Inasal Brand Manager Paygee Anne Palmos said. "And this love is rooted in various reasons- from cultural to heartwarming personal stories and memories associated with family and loved ones. With our well-loved Pinoy Halo-Halo, we wanted to pioneer a celebration that everyone could easily relate to. And with the hot Philippine summer settling in, we decided to launch a nationwide celebration of our love for halo-halo."

Visit Mang Inasal on March 19 and enjoy a Pinoy Halo-Halo for only P25! That's for the small cup and the regular cup is also available at the discounted rate of P45. The promo is valid for the whole day of March 19. And there's more, lucky customers in selected branches will also get a special treat on National Halo-Halo Sarap Day.

"The shared love for halo-halo unites us as dessert-loving Filipinos. We are proud and excited to lead this celebration of simple joy that brings together friends, families, and loved ones," added Palmos.

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.
