NEW RESTO ALERT: Beeffalo by Hotrocks San Juan City

Beeffalo is not really a "new" restaurant find for me because I've been to the branches in Antipolo and Marikina. The restaurant is known for its steaks, ribs, pizza, taco salad, and a whole lot more. Food was quite good, served pipping hot. The only downside (for me, that is) is that the resto is too far from where I live.


Luckily, its latest branch opened up near my house. Its about a kilometer away but walking distance plus a foodie needs to exercise. ;) Anyways, the San Juan branch is located along Hoover Street near Wilson / P. Guevara Streets. (landmark: Alphabet House)


Started our meal with Tomato Soup. I don't really like tomato soup based on previous resto experience but this one has a charm of its own. It doesn't taste too "tomato-ey" but you know its tomato soup. Really perfect for rainy weather or simply when you feel like having a nice cup of soup.


Three-Cheese Biscuit Pizza. Super biscuit thin pizza. Those who know me are well aware that I can't resist not ordering pizza when I see it on the menu. Actually, the first time I had this pizza was a very memorable experience for me that's why the next time I had an opportunity to visit the resto again (Marikina branch), I ordered it again. And guess what? It still tasted heavenly! I love that it is generously laden with cheese and the super thin crust makes it more delightful to eat.


Breakfast Steak. Daughter can't resist steak and egg so she ordered this. She enjoyed it except that she said that it would've been nicer if they serve gravy also. This order comes with bbq sauce. On that note, I don't think Beeffalo serves gravy. Luckily, daughter loves the fluffy mashed potatoes so she forgot about the gravy.

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.
