Swensen's Mango Sticky Rice Ice-Cream

Siem Reap is generally hot especially in the months of March to June so having some cold drinks or ice-cream is not a fat-fetch idea. There are many "coolers" sold in Siem Reap but Swensen's is Swensen's.

Swensen's ice-cream is quite good and it is a popular choice in Siem Reap especially since the branch is near the Old Market area. 


There are a lot of flavors to choose from, as well as milkshakes and sundaes and banana splits. It is really hard to choose since everything on the menu sounds delicious. The ice cream parlor is also brightly lit and with colors pleasing to the eyes.

Based on my Google search, Swensen's is originally a U.S. brand but is now owned by a Canadian food company. It has many branches in Asia that includes the Philippines although the ones in Manila closed already.


Aside from ice-cream, there's also ice-cream cake available at Swensen's. So Tempting to get one! Hopefully next time we visit Siem Reap I'll be able to try the ice-cream cake. :D


I was about to order the usual two scoops but noticed that they are serving Mango Sticky Rice Ice-Cream for a limited run. I like that!


Here's the Mango Sticky Rice Ice-Cream that I ordered. It has two scoops of mango ice-cream on-top-of green sticky rice, with some cream, scoconut strips, nuts, and caramel sauce. And if you notice the green seed-like thingy- that's a small "mango" candy. Yum! Btw, it comes with sweetened milk that you pour on the sticky rice. Think "suman."

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. ;)
