Breakfast at Khmer Taste

Our hotel in Siem Reap is just a few minutes walk to Pub Street and the Old Market so you can just imagine the restaurants, food carts, food vendors that we pass by every day. And eating seem to be a daunting task especially with all the food choices- from traditional Khmer cuisine, burgers, pizza, grilled food, and exotic ones such as grilled tarantulas, snakes, etc.

But one restaurant that captured our hearts (or tummy) is Khmer Taste because we ate there twice. We didn't really plan to eat there but since we were scouting for a reasonably priced laundry service (that's another story), we end up eating at Khmer Taste which was like 3 stores away. 



Food was so good, that we decided to eat breakfast there the following morning (Stay tuned for our Khmer Taste dinner). 

I'm not really a breakfast person so I just ordered sunny side-up + baguette + sweet Cambodia  coffee which costs me $1.75. My friebd had the scrambled eggs plus coffee which is basically the same amount. 



The bread was freshly made and warmed to perfection, crusty and soft at the same time. Perfect with butter. The coffee also tasted great and my only complaint was that the cup was small so you need to order another one if its not enough for you. 



Another hightlight at Khmer Taste aside from the food is its fish spa which costs only $1 for unlimited time. This fish spa is way, way cheaper than the ones near Pub Street and has a time limit. 



To sum it up, Khmer Taste is a great restaurant, a reasonably priced one that serves good food.

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.
