NEW RESTO ALERT: Manila Life at NAIA Terminal 3

We recently went to a spur-of-the-moment trip to HK and since it was semestral break, we anticipated the traffic and the volume of people at the airport so going there early is a must if you want to avoid the long lines.

And since we only had a light meal at home, we excitedly chose to dine at Manila Life, the latest restaurant to open at NAIA Terminal 3. Our airports (especially those in Metro Manila) has been seeing a lot of improvements aside from having shops and restaurants and fastfoods.


Chef Mike of Marriott Manila is at the helm of Manila Life so expect really delicious noms and are reasonably priced. Not to mention impeccable service since it is after all, under the management of Marriott Manila.


Manila Life is located at the 4F of Terminal 3, easily accessible for those who are passing the walkway coming from Newport City (Runway Manila). It is the first restaurant that you will see upon entering Terminal 3 via the walkway. Its a bit tricky if you are coming from the 3F Departure Area though since its a far walk from the escalator or elevator. Buy hey, if you are after good food, I'm sure you'll find your way without any difficulty.


It has lovely interiors also which is Instagram-friendly. Loving the iconic jeepney print on the wall also.


So here's what we ate:

"Tapdelog" or Tapa & Egg Pandesal Sandwich, P250. I was expecting a smaller serving because of the price but this was huge and good for sharing. The beef tapa was tender, flavorful and has generous portions of meat. I can't imagine how I ate all of it since it also comes with a serving of house fries. The pandesal itself was also good, soft and filling.


Manila Life Bacon and Mushroom Burger, P390. We asked what's the bestseller and we were told that it is the Manila Life Bacon and Mushroom Burger. Daughter can't resist a good burger so she had this. Another huge serving (good for sharing). At first I was apprehensive that she won't like the mushroom with mustard sauce but the flavors really blended well with the juicy burger patty and the crispy bacon. Two thumbs up! It comes with a serving of house fries also.


Overall, it was a great and filling dining experience. We paired our food with fresh juice so we're really, really happy. Manila Life has a lot of other exciting food to offer on their menu so we are looking forward to our next trip. :D

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.
