NEW RESTO ALERT: Roti Shop in Power Plant Mall

My daughter and I chanced upon this relatively new- Roti Shop at the Lower Ground floor Level in Power Plant Mall and since we're craving for some laksa, we decided to give it a try. The resto has a street food vibe with its mismatch chair color and formica tables. The place is also well-lit and looks inviting. The place was full but we were lucky to spot an unoccupied table near the counter.



There's Laksa on the menu as well as Nasi Lemak which I wanted to order. And looking at the menu, the restaurant serves Indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean favorites. The red cutlery holder also looks cool. You would think its "plastic" but is in fact bamboo which they colored red. It does brighten up the table as you eagerly wait for your food.

Since we're planning to have some coffee before going home, we agreed to share Teh Tarik or the pulled milk tea. You can have it hot or cold. Its good although I wanted it to have more "tea" taste to it. But my daughter disagreed with me since she almost finished off the whole drink by herself.

I was supposed to order the Nasi Lemak but decided to change my order to Ikan Bakar Asam, which  was grilled fish in sambal sauce. I was quite excited to order this since hubby loves fish, and I was thinking of recommending the dish to him. I asked the waiter what fish they serve and mentioned that its "Tilapia." I was a bit disappointed though when the dish arrived because the serving looks so small. Upon tasting, the sambal sauce was good but I think it would have tasted better with other much more flavorful fish. It doesn't taste grilled also.


Daughter had the Malaysian Style Crispy Garlic Fried Chicken which doesn't really look appetizing but it was good that borders on delicious. And you can really taste the garlic. It comes with sweet chili sauce that needs to "fire" if you ask me.


Overall, it was a filling meal since we finished it all off the plates (we're hungry, that's why). But the dishes that we ordered were short of being spectacular. Price-wise, its not that friendly on the pocket. Might come back again for the Laksa and Nasi Lemak though, will keep every one updated.

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. ;)
