World Street Food Jamboree through the Lens of LG G6 (Photo Essay)

I love how the LG G6 captures food shots with ease thanks to its Food Mode setting. It's perfect for events like the World Street Food Jamboree!

Aloo Tikki

Aloo Tikki from Manla Chaat (India) was the hands down favorite in the recently concluded World Street Food Festival 2017.

It's an Indian snack made out of boiled potatoes, onions, and various spices presented in a colorful canvas of vegetables and curry sauce.

Why The World Street Food Congress Dialog Matters? #WSFC2017

wsfc2017post1

The World Street Food Congress convened for the second year in the Philippines. Chefs and culinary influencers from around the world came together for a 2-day conference that celebrated this year's theme: "Re-Imagine Possibilities".   

Talks ranged from preserving street food culture to protecting the rights of street vendors and reimagining heritage foods for the younger generation.  

This year's conference was made special by a visit from the one and only Anthony Bourdain, who shared his insights on this year's topic and the impact of street food culture in America.  

Pictured Top: Some of the World Street Food Congress 2017 speakers and presenters — from left to right: Sau del Rosario (co-host), Richard Tan, Greg Drescher (Keynote), Malcolm Lee, Mai Pham, Anthony Bourdain, Wanda Corazon Teo (Secretary of Philippine Tourism), Ulf Tassilo Muench, KF Seetoh (Founder & Host), Claude Tayag,  Peter Lloyd,  Anton Diaz, Odilia Winneke, Arbind Singh, Prof. Nguyen Nha 



World Street Food Congress
The 2-day dialog was a platform where chefs and pioneers could showcase their work and share ideas with each other and the audience.  

Some of the Chefs gave demonstrations as they tried to reinterpret simple heritage foods and cuisine for the modern age. 

Guests were able to purchase various international street food from 28 hawker stalls that made up this year's Jamboree.

It serves all-day breakfast and comfort food favorites that Filipinos love. The restaurant is also a popular venue for 50-60 pax private events in BGC and her kitchen studio hosts intimate cooking & baking classes for a minimum group of 6. 

Thanks to her innovative collaborative spirit, she has outlasted most of the restaurants in this little corner of BGC.

Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen & Hukad: The Cebuano Food Invasion in Manila! @TheMallofAsia

Golden Cowrie-12.jpg

Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen is the premium brand of the foremost Cebu restaurant deeply rooted in the heart and culture of every Cebuano bringing generations of diners together for 35 years.

Its menu features classic recipes to pay homage to the heritage of Philippine cuisine and celebrates culinary creativity in terms of modern execution and play of flavors. The name pays tribute to the Cowrie, one of the Philippines' prized indigenous shells.

In Cebu, they are famous for their Crispy Pata, while their original Cebu Lechon Belly is a hit in Manila.

I have nothing but happy memories of eating at Golden Cowrie in Cebu, so I'm glad that they've decided to expand here and bring their authentic Cebuano cuisine to Manila.

Here's what to order and expect at Golden Cowrie Filipino Kitchen / Hukad...

IKOMAI & TOCHI by Chef James Antolin: Japanese Street Food & Solid Desserts (First Look)

Ikomai-30.jpg

IKOMAI  is a collaboration of Chef James Antolin and Nagoya Chef Hide, serving progressive Japanese street and comfort food. The premium casual concept is an extension of their Saturday Salcedo market stall of the same name, which means "Let's Go" in Japanese. TOCHI, on the other hand, is the raved about dessert line of Chef James, co-located in the same restaurant. The name literally translates to "Land", an allusion to it being a "Land of Desserts." 

It's a nice place to hang out for good conversations, approachable Japanese food, and solid desserts in Makati.

Here's what to expect at Ikomai x Tochi...
