Most of the foodies in Manila are raving about the One Town One Product (OTOP) Fair in Megatrade Hall in MegaMall. After doing an OTOP food trip, we can’t stop raving about it! Let me share with you our discoveries when we went around. The fair runs until tomorrow, Sunday and you should not miss it.
To start off the food trip, have a taste of Bing Angeles’ Tahong Chips (P20/P45)dipped in their own version of Sinamak. Tahong Chips is an OTOP product of Bacoor, Cavite. Then visit Teresita Verano’s colorful brooms which is a proud OTOP product from Caramoran, Catanduanes.
Check out the innovative C&C foods’ traditional Kesong Puti Dips and Spreads (P100), a product OTOP of Nueva Ecija. Usually there is a crowd that forms around this booth to taste the different flavors of Kesong Puti Dips and Spreads. Most of the people who tasted it, end up buying the product.
Fly over to La Trinidad, Benguet and have a wine tasting at Jason’s Quality Wines. Check out their Strawberry, Blueberry, Yacon and Bugnay Wine. Bugnay Wine is our local red wine. I liked the blueberry and yacon wines.
Nagutom ka na ba? (Are you getting hungry?) We can’t stop raving about this OTOP Fair! We’ll surely go to the next event!
