Ultimate Taste Test 11-5.jpg

Spanky Enriquez wears many hats within the Manila foodie community—he is an avid blogger, social media specialist, event host, educator, and all-around bon vivant.

He gained recognition for his colorful, and sometimes controversial blog, “Manila Boy”, and writes a column for www.juice.ph called “The Daily Spank.” He also teaches classes at Istituto Culinario in Greenhills.

Those who know Spanky can attest to his witty personality, and sharp analysis of the Manila restaurant scene, particularly when it comes to Marketing. He has hosted a number of seminars and privately consulted for many restaurant owners on how to make social media work for them—an integral component in any business in this day and age.

He also organizes groups of like-minded bloggers to get together at various restaurants around the city, to help spread the word about delicious new dishes, interesting holes-in-the-wall, or exciting new players on the scene.

Spanky has been hosting the Ultimate Taste Test ever since its early days in 2010.
