Paradise Dynasty Favorites and Chili Crab Xiao Long Bao!

It's hard not to love restaurants thats serves great food and one such restaurant that my family always love going back to is Paradise Dynasty. Of course, it is famous for its 8-flavor xiao long bao but really, every thing on the menu is equally delish and that makes it a bit difficult to really choose a specific favorite.



Currently though, we can't seem to skip ordering the Original Xiao Long Bao, the Steam Glutinous Rice Stuff in Dates and the Radish Puff Pastry.


These are the lightest and non-greasy radish puff pastry that I have eaten. It doesn't even have that weird taste of radish cake. Even those who hate eating radish will enjoy this radish puff.


Crispy Fried Crystal Prawns Tossed in Salted Egg Yolk, a very long name but hard not to fall in-love with this dish. The prawns are also surprisingly juicy even if its fried.


Spicy Pork Wontons is another current favorite since I am into spicy food. Preparing myself for spicy food marathon soon. ;)


It might look weird because the Charcoal Custard Lava Bun is black but looks can be deceiving. Best to eat this a few minutes after it lands on the table since the custard lava is still lava-ish. Be careful though because it can burn your tongue.


The Chili Crab Xiao Long is a new favorite although it is only available at the SM Aura Premiere branch. It may be far but this flavor is definitely worth the long drive. Chili Crab Xiao Long Bao pays homage to the Singaporean favorite Chili Crab but this is only available on a limited time.

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. ;)
