I first tasted Barneys Burger at Midnight Mercato. One thing that stood out about it for me was the burger patty -- malinamnam.

There are a lot of burger sellers applying in Mercato Centrale, but most of them get rejected because of their mediocre taste, but not Barneys. (Although the burger bun they use can be improved. Right now, it resembles the local monay bread that can't hold the patty well.) It has an interesting history, which started in 1988 in Guagua, Pampanga.

Congratulations, Barneys Burger, for winning Ultimate Taste Test 8.0: Global Gastronomy Top Spot #6!

Kristina's Inutak is an inspiring example of food entrepreneurs embracing their heritage by showcasing their own sweet local delicacy (in this case Taguig), packaging it well and marketing through local food markets and social media.

So, what's Inutak like? Marry the smoothness of tibuk tibuk (but use coconut milk instead of carabao's milk) and the flavors of sapin sapin, and you'll get this wonderful treat that is best eaten warm and topped with homemade vanilla ice cream. :) Most foodies prefer the original flavor.

It's a two-time winner of the Ultimate Taste Test series (UTT7.0 and UTT8.0). Congratulations!

Beef Misono

From the original Iloilo creators of the Crave Burger comes a budding Japanese quick-service resto concept offering beef cooked teppanyaki-style and fried chicken with a Japanese-inspired sauce.

I personally like the flavor of the sauces and the quality of the beef used. It's no wonder they had one of the popular stalls during UTT8 Global Gastronomy.

Congratulations, MISONO EXPRESS!

NUTELLA ROCKS (P45/each)

Sometimes you get sick and tired of bakers just copying whatever's the "in" thing to bake and sell in the market -- from red velvet cupcakes to different versions of brownies and food for the gods.

So, when you get to taste a unique innovation that's yummy and unforgettable, you can't help but rave about it. Just like how foodies at Ultimate Taste Test 8 kept on raving about Baked Bites' Nutella Rocks!

My first impression was that it looked hard and would probably be the usual brownie (just in circular form). Well, that first impression didn't last. It was moist and chewy; its hazelnut taste was spot-on; and its cute, rock-like cookie sandwich shape was charming. What's not to love?
