Bangkok's The Drunken Leprechaun

Tucked away in the streets of Sukhumvit 15 is this quaint Irish Pub called The Drunken Leprechaun (TDL). From the outside it looks grand but as soon as you step in, all the fun begins. And why not? The Irish and leprechauns are known as a merry bunch.


The Drunken Leprechaun offers a relaxed ambiance for diners or for those who simply just want to hang out, chill at the bar, watch sports on the telly or simply listen to the live band. Oh, TDL also has a weekly quiz night in case you want to test your mental prowess.


"Save Water, Drink Beer!" The Drunken Leprechaun has a lot of mouthwatering Irish & other favorite International and local dishes to offer but of course, it also has a very extensive list of beers, cocktails, whiskey & bourbon, cognac, and even wine & champagne.



Aside from the main area, TDL also has a "secret" room that provides a backdrop for intimate conversations or private parties. What's interesting here is that the room actually uses barrels as a tables and it adds to the overall magic to the place. I was half expecting real leprechauns to suddenly pop out of the barrel!


Slainte !!!

Leffe Beer (or Abbey Beer) has its origins in Belgium in the Abbey of Leffe. The monks started brewing ale in the mid 1200s and from then on, it has produced a line of different Leffe variants from Leffe Blonde, Leffe Brune, and to its latest Leffe Royale (Leffe Royale Whitbread Golding).


Leffe Royale is the "champagne" counterpart of beers. It has a robust flavor with a hint of vanilla that is perfectly paired with The Drunken Leprechaun's seafood pie. The delicate flavors of the seafood pie compliments well with the bold and strong taste of Leffe Royale.

Of course, another highlight of the trip is to document it and this is where Globe Roaming comes in handy. I was able to post ATM photos on my Instagram (@vivamanilena) and Twitter (@vmtkg).

  1. It looks nice and clean. I've only been to a bar once so far. By the look at it, I think the place is good and can be a venue for catching up with friends. I think hanging out with int'l bloggers adds excitement to this visit. :) ♥

  2. Oooh, it's like this place in Malate before called The Hobbit House. Unfortunately, the founder already passed. I don't know if his family continued on his legacy.

    P.S. love the secret room.

  3. The place looks so classy but also reminds me of the How I Met Your Mother series "The MacLaren's Pub. And oh! efforts on the Leprechauns. Nice bar concept! :)

  4. Nice place. Honestly, the place doesn't look like a pub when outside. I would like to sample that Leffe Royale, though I doubt if I could make it home.

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. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
