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.

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. ;)
