CHIANG KAI-SHEKMemorial Hall is a tribute to the founder of Taiwan, Chiang Kai-shek. It opened in 1980, 4 years after his death in 1975.
A visit to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is a must for any tourist to understand the culture and colorful history of Taiwan. I’ve visited the hall twice now: the first with the family and our friend Meg Kho, and the second with the Taiwan Fam Trip Group via Jeron Travel.
Here’s a guide to having an awesome experience when visiting Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall…

EMILIO MORO Winery was established in 1891 in Northwest Spain. Now run by the 3rd generation of Moros, José & Javier, they produce one of the best Tempranillo (Spanish grape variety) Wines in the world.
José Moro was in Manila for a visit and created a beautiful 4-course Spanish meal with wine pairing at RAMBLA.
I’ve started to appreciate wine because it adds a different dimension to my meal experience. I also love hearing the story behind the wine because I get to know more about the passion and culture of the family who created it.
Here’s a photo essay of our Rambla x Emilio Moro dining experience…
It’s named after its trademark “Triple-O” hamburger sauce (made of mayonnaise and hamburger relish). The name of the sauce itself came from the shorthand language used by the original order takers (known as carhops) to indicate the guests’ choice of extra mayo and/or relish. A Triple “O” on the order slip meant “plenty of everything”.
People who have travelled to or live in Canada are familiar with the brand and excited about the opening of the Manila branch.
It was admittedly my first time to try Triple-O’s. Here’s our experience…
SOFRITO CAFE by Millie is the first authentic Puerto Rican restaurant in Manila. Its name is a tribute to Puerto Rican Sofrito, a sauce of cilantro, onion, garlic, and green, red, and aji peppers used as a base flavor when cooking food.
The Manila restaurant scene is starting to get crowded with the same food concepts. As foodies, we’re always craving for something new, searching for flavors that educate us on other cultures. Sofrito is one such restaurant.

MODERN TOILET started out as Marton resto in 2004. It was rebranded as Modern Toilet in 2006.
If your kids are all boys, you probably know how fond they are of poo-poo, pee-pee, and fart jokes. So just imagine our boys’ surprise when we brought them to this restroom-themed resto in Taiwan.
Here’s a photo essay of our Modern Toilet experience with the boys…

HOT-STAR is a popular shop in Taiwan’s Shilin Night Market and famous for its large chicken chop.
Unlike those of the other Taiwan Chicken Chop places that have opened in Manila, Hot-Star’s fried chicken is 30 cm long — big enough for 2-3 persons — and priced just right at P110-P125, depending on the flavor.
