It was my first time to attend! What an amazing event! =)

We are super thankful to the 17 food suppliers, 180 foodies, and our sponsors who made the Ultimate Taste Test 2.0 a success! One hundred percent of the proceeds of the taste event were donated to the construction of the St. Michael the Archangel Church in Fort Bonifacio. We can’t wait for the Ultimate Taste Test 3.0 — in a bigger venue in the Fort area (hopefully). This time we are planning to have over 50 suppliers and invite all OAP readers (around 1,000 foodies). It would be the Ultimate Ultimate Taste Event of the year…

(Contact [email protected] if you want to join the next taste test event as a food supplier, or you want to be a sponsor for the next event. We are just finalizing the venue…)

You can smell the love for food in the air…

We can’t wait to tell the stories of the food suppliers who are literally just starting out and got rave reviews from the discriminating foodie community…

This time we had a complete drinks lineup — with a coffee bar, wine bar, and unlimited juice. 🙂

All the food tasting events are family-friendly — foodie kids are always welcome…

The biggest area of improvement was seen in the lines that formed at most of the stations. We only expected 100 people but ended up with close to 200… We need to plan better in terms of the supply of food and logistics.

Thanks to Ivan Man Dy for being the foodie tour guide of the Ultimate Taste Test Event!

Thanks to Ayala for sponsoring the event and the venue. 🙂

My lovely wife, Rache, single-handedly organized the entire event while pregnant with BB5… galing!

Only 10 out of the 17 suppliers made the 3.3 (out of 5.0) rating cut-off… I’m proud to blog about them (to be continued…)

Live an Awesome Life,
