NEW RESTO ALERT: Huma Mediterranean Cuisine

Had an unplanned trip to S Maison Conrad last weekend and ended up dining at Huma Mediterranean Cuisine. We've also been craving for some shawarma since last week so we're happy to dine at Huma.


The place looks posh and expensive so we were mildly surprised when we saw that the prices are quite reasonable.

Tzatziki, P240. It comes with three pieces of pita bread placed inside a hat-like container to maintain its warmth.


Fried Kalamare, P300. Super love this, and the fries that comes with it, too! It comes with a yogurt dip which we really liked a lot so we requested for an extra serving.


Shawarma Laham, P400 and  Sawded Dajaj, P200. The shawarma comes with Tahini sauce that we all find bitter so we opted to dip the shawarma in the yogurt and the tzatziki sauce. Sawded Dajaj is grilled liver in pomegranate sauce. Really, really good! My daughter was asking me when are we going back to Huma because she wanted to order the liver again.


The restaurant was a bit full when we arrived so I wasn't able to take photos properly except for these nice colorful lamps which reminded me of Murano glass.


What I love best at Huma is that the sauces / dip that came with the food doesn't taste the same. So if you like it garlicky, or maybe bitter, or sweet, just ask the waiters for some recommendation.

Added bonus when we dined was the Pyromusical show. You can either reserve a table in the veranda but you need to shell out at least P1,500 or get a table that has a view of the bay. ;)

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.
