Mario's Holiday Delights

A celebration is never complete without good food especially if its from Mario's. For more than four decades, Mario's has established itself as a family restaurant that serves family traditional recipes that highlights Spanish cuisine favorites.

Begin the feast with some Caesar Salad and Crunchy Calamares Fritos, Callos Madrilena with its rich red sauce, Paella Valenciana with a medley of seafood and meat, Lengua Con Setas with that melts-in-your-mouth goodness, among other delectable dishes.

Then there are the delicious choices of postres- Toffee Sans Rival, Canonigo, Bread Pudding, Chocolate and Cheese Cakes and Sugar-Free Jello. You can cap the meal with freshly brewed coffee that's perfect for the chilly December air or have a glass of white or red wine. Salud!

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.

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.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
