Rockwell UTT Winner #27: EAT MY GF Original GF with Toppings, Virgin Chips 3.57

UTT Rating Breakdown: 
134 foodies rated 5- Awesome! I would recommend it!

175 foodies rated 3- We had a good time.
67 foodies rated 2- It is OK.
16 foodies rated 1- Thanks, but it could be better.

Eat My GF‘s product is simple — garlic fries done well. It has that good garlicky taste and crispy texture. It is definitely better than the other commercial versions out there. I guess it also helps that its name is very catchy (with a slightly sexual tone). Foodies can’t stop raving about this GF!

Congratulations to Eat My GF for garnering great scores at Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test!

The Story of Eat My GF
by Kim Patrick Cariaso 

I thought of starting a business back in the summer of 2009 when I was in California. I am an avid fan of ball games, and whenever I would watch with my friends, we would always order garlic fries. I loved it ever since I was a kid. I would put ketchup and mustard all over it and be pretty stuffed by just eating that.

So when I got back in Manila, I thought of introducing garlic fries here in the Philippines.  I asked two of my closest friends, Jordy (who is a chef) and May, to help me out.  Jordy was the main man in getting the taste right.  We had to experiment, cook, and eat kilos and kilos of fries for a month until we finally got the taste that I was looking for. As for the name, we really wanted it to be unique and unforgettable. We were brainstorming for the perfect brand name until May came up with “GF”. We thought it was really catchy and I subsequently added my own personal touch when I named it “Eat My GF”.

We started our venture at the yearly Cuenca Bazaars in Ayala Alabang Village. During our first bazaar, everything got sold out! One balikbayan from California even said that, “This tastes just like the one at the San Francisco Giants games.” I knew right then that I was on the right track.

Due to its success in the Christmas bazaars, we joined Rockwell, Nuvali and Megatent bazaars, among others, to see if people would respond well to our product.  The outcome…was very positive, and that is when I finally decided to open a more permanent stall. I currently have my first stall at the Food Choices in Alabang Town Center, which opened last May 2011. As demand started to rise, I decided to open another one at the Food Choices in Glorietta 4, which opened last September 2011.

One thing I learned from “Eat My GF”: JUST FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
