About Me

"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well." - Virginia Woolf


The Kitchen Goddess blog came to life in 2006 after transitioning from its Multiply(dot)com platform around 2004. I wasn't really thinking of a food blog back then but I grew up in a home where home cooking and food discoveries always equates to happy memories. I also love to read and during the time when I created this blog, I was re-reading Amy Tan's "The Kitchen God's Wife." I was also just learning to spend time in the kitchen during that time so I found myself morphing as The Kitchen Goddess.

From that year on, I've seen myself evolve both as a foodie and as a writer. I started attending food related events in 2013 and one of the most memorable event that I've attended as a food blogger was the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival 2013, and as for food discovery, I am still in awe of the rustic leafy noodles that I've tasted this summer (2018) in Siem Reap- Noodles at Neak Pean Temple.

I've always been an adventurous eater and my love for food has taken me to different continents. And when I have extra time, I try to re-create some of the dishes that I've tasted especially during my travels and feed it to my family.

The Kitchen Goddess is not just about the latest restaurant and food offerings you'll get to visually sample some of the dishes I've tasted during our travels, as well as some recipes I created. Baking is still my waterloo and I hope that in time, I'll discover my passion for it, too.


Do drop my a line or two at: tkg388@gmail.com I'd love to hear your thoughts. Cheers!

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. ;)
