La Mere Poulard

La Mere Poulard is a bistro located right in the heart of SM Aura Premiere. At first glance, it may seem like a posh restaurant especially with its French name but really, the menu is reasonably priced (with a few exceptions) and serving portion is good for sharing.

This is our sixth stop during the food crawl #AweSMFeast #TasteOfAura at SM Aura Premiere.


The ambiance is very relaxed and I like how "light" the atmosphere is at La Mere Poulard. This restaurant is also famous for its puff omelettes which we got to try. Wine is readily available here but if you're not up for it, you can opt to have the wine glasses removed.


Each table is given a bread basket and butter while waiting for the orders to arrive. I love the crusty baguette and the homemade butter. Perfect!


Here's our Puff Omelette with Rissotto and Foie Gras. Puff omelette is a cross between an omelette and a souffle. It is recommended to get a piece of omelette, rissotto and the foie gras on your spoon and then eat it at the same time. The combination of flavors and textures are amazing specially the foie gras.


Then we were served Chicken Adobo Cooked in Apple Cider and Apple bits. OMG! Whoever created this is a genius. I love how our Pinoy Adobo becomes French-inspired simply by using apples. And the meat was really tender and tasty. I love how La Mere Poulard incorporated some of the Filipinos best-loved dishes by giving them a French tweak. Another must-try on the menu is the Beef Caldereta in Burgundy Style (making mental note to try that sometime soon).



Overall, it was a nice and enjoyable dining experience at La Mere Poulard. Hope they open a branch in Makati or Ortigas. *hint* *hint*

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. ;)
