Food Tasting Experience: Illustrado
When you're getting married, the exciting part is to look for the church, venue and possible suppliers on your big day. But my fiance and I discovered something more exciting about wedding preparations -- the food tasting invites!! Haha! We both have big appetites and every time there's a grand food tasting invites , we make sure that we can be present. (Halatang matakaw e! Haha!)
So last Saturday, Pao and I went to Illustrado's Grand food tasting in their Restaurant at Intramuros. Since we are still looking for caterers (we haven't fully decided where to hold our reception in Tagaytay) we were very much interested to try their offering.
And I love their theme for the day -- Japanese Zen! I never thought that cherry blossoms and pink are so refreshing in the eyes. I kept on asking Paolo if he would like to have the same theme. He didn't give me an answer. Haha
Now let's go to the best part.. the food!
The Buffet Table
Since its only for food tasting, they served with a small plate. (and yes, deep inside I was thinking out loud how small naman the plate to fill all the courses I want to eat. Hihi!)
But we made sure that we've satisfied our tummies, hence Paolo's big smile! Gosh we loved the food so much, especially their paella and pasta! We couldn't help but eat a lot more after the first round of eating :p
And yes! their dessert area were filled with awesomeness that I made sure that I was able to try one of each kind! (I'm such a sweet tooth I could survive with just eating sweets the entire day). And they're really good.
We were really impressed with Illustrado that we are contemplating if we should get them and have them cater our tagaytay wedding. They serve really superb dishes that I'm sure my future guests will love. I really wish Pao and I find the perfect venue (budget and experience - wise) in Tagaytay
And if you have suggestions, let me know. I'll appreciate it :) My wedding will be on Nov next year (which is really far from now) but we like to prepare it slowly but surely :)
Much Love, TBD
