We've taste-tested a lot of cakes and dessert items in Mercato, but we haven't come across much treats like the Cassava Tartlet from Joan & Jane Cake Bites. It is something different and definitely worth raving about immediately after your first bite.

You've got to try their Salted Caramel Cassava Tartlets topped with chopped cashews to balance the taste. This is a refreshing twist to the usual cassava tart.

They also introduced their beef pot pie and custard cake in UTT7.0, but the tartlets were the ones that left a lasting impression.

Congratulations to Joan & Jane Cake Bites for getting the foodies' seal of approval in UTT 7.0!

Edible Options is one of the best selling stalls in Mercato, Soderno and Distrito. Ging, the powerful force behind it, is a respected food entrepreneur. She specializes in good quality food products that are unbranded most of the time so that she can sell them at a good cost.

She is also popularly known for her buy 1 take 1 sausages, which got a 3.77 rating in UTT 5.0.

In UTT 7.0, she introduced her Christmas food offerings -- Chicken Galantina, Ham and her baked goodies such as Food for the Gods, Rum cake, Carrot cake. I personally liked her Chicken Galantina, which is something you can order for Noche Buena or Media Noche.

Congratulations, Ging of Edible Options, for winning foodies' hearts in UTT 7.0!

There are a lot of people who want to introduce Fish N' Chips in our food markets, and Fillet N' Dips is starting to become known in Mercato and Soderno as the place to get a good one.

Instead of the fish fillet, some people prefer the fish fingers version for easier sharing (like the chicken fingers popularized by Friday's).

Congratulations to this young start-up business, Fillet N' Dips, for winning in Ultimate Taste Test 7.0! :)

Here is an interesting take on Spam...

Served sushi-style, the slice of Spam sits on a bed of rice wrapped in seaweed. I personally like it served with Wasabi Mayo.

It is a simple concept based on a good understanding of what Filipinos love.

Congratulations, Happy Tummy! :)

The first time I heard about Inutak, images of soft brain flashed through my head.

But I learned that it is actually one of the unique and popular kakanin treats from Taguig. I'm glad that Kristine's family decided to brand and market it as one of the best kakanin in Manila.

Sticky rice (galapong), coconut milk and sugar make up this unique dessert. Think of it as a very smooth, ube-flavored bibingka with an almost-mochi type of consistency. I think it would go perfectly well with vanilla ice cream.

Thanks to the people of Taguig for proudly introducing Inutak to more Filipinos! :)
