FOOD FINDS: El Mateo's Mixed Berries Chia Spread

El Mateo's Mixed Berries Chia Spread is a delightfully delicious and nutritious spread that you can put on top of toast, crackers, scone, cakes, and even ice cream. Haha, no kidding, I love experimenting when it comes to food.


This berries and chia spread is quite addicting with the right balance of tart and sweetness. And since its the Holiday Season, this bottle is the perfect companion on your festive table or better yet, you can share this with family and friends.

Aside from Mixed Berries Chia Spread, El Mateo also offers other equally delicious spreads: Salmon Pate Spread, Cheese Pesto Spread, and the mean Chilicioso if you are hankering for something hot.


Cheese Pesto Spread. This is more on cheese than pesto so even kids will love this spread. I guess this can be perfect on pasta also but you need several bottles.


Salmon Pate Spread. This is another favorite because it is a creamy salmon pate spread that you can slather generously on your toast or crackers. Perfect if you are having a cocktail party at home, or when you feel like having a gourmet snack.


Chilicioso. Okay, I have to admit, I chickened out and haven't tasted this one yet. Just by the look of it, I know its going to be hot, hot, hot so I am saving the bottle for my friend who keeps on posting photos of dishes with tons of chilis.



El Mateo Spreads can be ordered by Facebook: El Mateo Deli.

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. ;)
