KOI The: Not Another Milk Tea!

There's been a milk tea craze going on and of course, we do have our favorites such as this, and this, and that. And because of Instagram, our world of milk tea suddenly expanded and we wanted to have a taste of those popular milk tea shops in Taiwan that creates longish lines and fandom.

It was then that I suddenly found myself bound for Singapore sans my daughter (foodie-mate), but she gave me these list of food that I must try in SG and one them is KOI The, a milk tea shop. 



I was all set to head off to Bugis Mall because there's a KOI branch there but luckily found out that there's one at Changi City Point Mall which was just across Singapore Expo where my 4-day seminar is. Serendipity lah! 


Anyways, it was kinda hard to choose so I just asked for the bestseller lah. That was the Golden Bubble Milk Tea and it tasted good. They used burnt sugar so it has that added "arnibal" flavor to it. You know, "brown" sugar syrup like the ones being used in "taho?" 



I only got the medium-sized drink which cost sgd $3.50. Expensive but delicious lah!

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. ;)
