Eating Pad Thai at Chatuchak Market

My first meal during our recent trip to Bangkok was at Chatuchak Market and it was a nice experience especially going around the huge market. Read more about my market tour here -- Chatuchak Market.

So after going around the market and getting lost, we decided to eat in one of the numerous food stalls that are lined up along the street just in front of Chatuchak Market. We were so hungry we just choose the nearest one with a vacant table.

Pad Thai. I love this noodle dish but I guess I am too tired and hungry to appreciate what I ordered. It is a very filling meal though.


Tom Yum Goong. A different version of Tom Yum. Its too brown according to my friend who ordered this and she said it was so spicy even if she told the server that she prefers the not spicy Tom Yum. Lost in translation. ;)


Another friend ordered this pork with rice dish. I forgot what its called. I mean, we were all so hungry that we even forgot to take photos of the menu.


Here's us, still smiling while playing hunger games literally. Hahaha.

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.
