Merry Moo, a 5-time UTT winner, is very consistent in introducing new ice cream flavors that foodies rave about. It’s proudly Filipino-made and supports the local communities.

I love the Scandalously Chocolate made from our very own Malagos Chocolate in Davao, and it actually tasted like and has a texture of Royce Chocolate. Matcha lovers would surely love the White Choco and Matcha Green Tea unique flavor combination.

Almost all the foodies during the UTT were raving about Crispy Pork Belly con Chorizo Paella by Kulinarya Kitchen. Some people also like the Seafood Salad in a Maki form. Kulinarya understands the pinoy palate and creates simple comfort food dishes to crave for. 

This pinoy-inspired paella and seafood maki are great potluck option to bring for your family reunion or celebration this holiday season.

We like Dulcelin Gourmet’s Red Rice with Shrimp Shiso & Quail Eggs which is similar to Miang kham snack in Thailand with different flavors that complement and balanced out each other in a bite size form. This is a popular appetizer in their Dulcelin Gourmet restaurant in UP Town Center. 

Dulcelin is famous for their Mango Torte, but foodies also love their Cacao con Leche 🙂
