Chicken and Mocktails at Nandos

On my last night in SG, I decided to splurge a bit on my dinner and dine at Nandos. The first time I heard of Nandos was through my daughter who kept on raving about it when she dined with her cousins in Chicago. The restaurant has many branches all over the world and specializes in Portugese-style chicken dishes and is famous for their peri-peri sauce which you can also buy separately.


So after a tiring last minute trip to Bugis, I spied Nandos and decided to have my dinner there. I know I've been eating a lot of chicken since I arrived in SG but Nandos is all about chicken.

Btw, Nandos hails from South Africa before it expanded to some key cities around the world. It has a casual-dining ambiance and great venue for family dinners or catching-up with friends.


I got myself a quarter chicken + 1 side dish (Mediterranean rice), SGD 12.90. The food portion may seem small because it was served on a big plate, and the rice serving can actually be shared. As for the chicken, it was juicy and very flavorful even without the famous per-peri sauce. I didn't add any sauce, btw. I forgot about the sauce because I was just so tired from exploring SG the whole day and I just want to have a nice dinner before I head to the airport.


I chose Cheeky Cherry, SGD 4.90, to pair with my meal which proved to be perfect. The drink was refreshing enough to wake up the senses and made me ready for shopping again. Haha, just kidding!

Overall, it was a very filling meal albeit expensive if you compute the forex between SG and PH. But it was really delicious and memorable. So, would I dine at Nandos again if ever I happen to visit SG again? Let's wait and see. ;)

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.

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.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
