Samjung Grill Restaurant

Watching too much Sageuks is bad for the health. My hubby has been craving for Korean dishes ever since he watched his first Korean series- hahaha. Actually, we used to have a favorite Korean carinderia somewhere in Malate but it already closed so we need to find a replacement. We did find one but it's in Baguio City so we can't dine there when we want to. Luckily, we found a perfect Korean restaurant in Burgos area in Makati City.



It was an accidental discovery, hubby and I were just going around the streets of Burgos area in Makati when we chanced upon Samjung Grill Restaurant. It's a few steps away from Alchemy.

I guess we really haven't eaten at a Korean restaurant for a long time because I forgot that they serve ban chans, and I was like-- "I didn't order that." 

So here's what we ate-- we started with beef ribs soup which was hubby's favorite. The serving portion is good for sharing and comes with a cup of rice. The meat was tender and the soup was flavorful. There are bits of beansprouts and some glass noodles and egg mixed in with the soup. Quite filling and perfect for rainy nights. Weather was hot though when we dine there but got seated near the AC!


Kimchi Fried Rice. I was a bit hesitant to order this because it might be too spicy but its not. Very tasty that even if I told hubby I might not be able to eat all of it... Well, you can just guess what happene. Serving portion is good for sharing. Samjung serves great tasting kimchi by the way. I'm just not sure if you can buy from them. 


Grill Squid. It just took a while for this dish to be served because they grill it only when there's an order. Spicy but I lived! Hahaha. Just make sure to remove the chili bits, otherwise it might stick to your throat and leave you coughing. Extra rice please! 


I was thinking of having dessert but we're quite full. There are many other interesting dishes on the menu although I forgot to take pics. Reason to go back. 😉

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.
