Savoring Hong Kong Favorites at Honolulu HK Cafe in SM Aura Premiere

Hong Kong holds a special place in my heart. I love how they were able to preserve their culture amidst modernity. Of course, this is also true with their dishes- they have the best and unassuming traditional dimsum versus the artisinal ones.

And to satisfy that craving for authentic Hong Kong noms, Honolulu HK Cafe comes to the rescue.


The food choices at Honolulu HK Cafe is an interesting mix of noodles, rice meals, pork chops and more.


Deep Fried Honey Garlic Spareribs 

The sweetness of the honey was balanced out by the garlic which was complimented by the texture from it being deep-fried, easily making it a favorite.


Deep Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk

This was another favorite. The salted egg yolk flavor made it light and easy to pair with the other dishes or even have it on its own.


Steamed Rice with Chinese Sausage and Wine-Dried Meat in Casserole

Each bite of it made you want to have another. The wine-dried meat explodes in your mouth as the sweetness of the Chinese sausage balances it out.


Baked Spaghetti with Minced Beef Bolognaise

It was a surprise to feel the creaminess of the dish underneath the clearly baked portion of it. Additionally, it was a treat to find pieces of meat to go with the spaghetti.


Curry Fish Ball

The serving portion of 10 pieces per order made it really good for sharing! Also, if you enjoyed the curry sauce, you can add it to your order with rice.



Iced Red Bean with Milk

Insider tip: you should mix it well before having a sip. The naturally sweet red bean goes well with the milk. It's a healthy alternative to the usual boba fix which goes well with your meal.

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.
