DRINKS:

BOOCHAMAMA

Boochamama is a Small-Batch, Artisanal, Craft, Kombucha Tea nano brewery based in Manila. The Kombucha Teas are Raw, Alive and Unpasteurized to maximize all the health benefits.  Raw Kombucha is a uniquely delicious ancient elixir made from sweetened tea. It contains naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes and organic acids as well as powerful probiotic, pre-biotic, immune booster and anti-oxidants known to support optimal health and well-being.

The large vat of liquid behind the bottles contained the SCOBY, the mother ingredient for all Kombucha.

Boochamama brought quite a few flavors for us to sample that day, but my clear winner was the French Rose.

ELIAS WICKED ALES AND SPIRITS

‘Raoul Masangcay, a certified Cicerone and BJCP Beer Judge in the Philippines, evoked a love for craft beers and hard ciders like no other. He spent a considerable amount of time in the United States, perfecting his ciders and winning multiple homebrew competitions along the way. When he moved back to the Philippines in December 2017, he decided to focus on imparting Filipino flavors to these brews.’

LICK ICE TEA

Lick is a relatively young yet capable competitor in the local flavored tea industry. Their quirky variants—Raspberry, Huckleberry, Southern Sweet Peach, Giant Apple Tea, Sicilian Lemon and Sakura Blossom only attest to the creativity of the people behind it. Despite being playful, Lick does not fail to address what’s important. This is why each bottle is naturally sweetened with Stevia Plant Extract.

While Lick has introduced their brand with glass-bottled iced teas, their Lick Island Mango undeniably stood out for me. Lick Island Mango is a sweet attempt to fit all of our islands’ fresh and ripe mangoes in one ready-to-drink bottle!

COOKED & FROZEN MEALS:

THE BROKEN OVEN

Two years ago, Marco Olives (my brother) started The Olive Treat (delivery based business) and he was known most for his Slow Roasted Pork Belly. It was a favorite for Christmas meals, office blow-outs, family dinners, or potluck events. During Christmas week, because of a crazy amount of orders we had of the Pork Belly, our oven conked out. My brother had to manually turn the bellies in the baking oven in our house.

It was a lot of work but our clients were still happy! When our friends approached us with a space in Industrie Food Loft, we decided that we wanted to come up with a concept that is approachable but deadly good and a little crazy. Something that makes #thebrokendiet worth it!

We chose the name The Broken Oven because (fingers crossed) years from now, when we are already successful, we want to look back at where we started; plus the name is easy to remember. On another note, since we are not professionally trained chefs, we feel like the idea of going crazy in the kitchen and recreating dishes are perfectly encapsulated in that name.’

GYOZA HOUSE

Gyoza House started as a personal project for Alain Siscar as a way to help his Chef Partner Christian. Through rounds of recipe formulation and testing, they came up with what they believe to be the best-tasting gyoza.

Gyoza House prides itself in not using extenders for its Gyoza. The addition of the mozzarella in its Cheese Gyoza gave the Japanese dumpling a pleasantly surprising creamy texture. Great all-around appetizer.

SAUCES/SPREADS:

CHEF MIRA’S

Chef Mira has been making spreads since 1999, but a decade in the food business has not made her complacent. This is clearly evident in the new flavors she recently came up with. Being a fan of anything cream cheese, my eyes lit up upon seeing her table. Just as the line of stands was about to end, I saw two small jars staring at me. The jars were labeled “Nori Cream Cheese” and “Bacon Caramel Cream Cheese.” I almost instantly picked up a biscuit glazed with a fair amount of spread on top.

The Bacon Caramel Cream cheese met my expectations; it was sweet and salty, crunchy and creamy. Finding real bacon bits in my mouth was just delightful. The Nori Cream Cheese, on the other hand, was a pleasant surprise. The nori seaweed’s strong yet distinctive flavor complemented the cream cheese’s familiarity. Thanks to Chef Mira’s indulging me; it took me rounds of going back before officially declaring I was in cream cheese heaven!

 

MENU:

Sundried, Pesto, Nori and Bacon – 80z P250; 4oz P130 Cheese Pimiento – 8oz P200; 4oz P110

GARLICIOUS

Filipinos are hooked on garlic that there is hardly any Filipino dish without it; we even use it on our rice! And so it’s only fitting that a delectable dip is borne out of our great love for garlic. The moment I tried to dip a chunk of fried chicken into it, I knew I had to have it. Its taste was strong but not overpowering. In fact, it only brought out the flavor of the chicken even more. I’d be bold enough to say that this dip should be a primary condiment in every Filipino household.

FIRST HARVEST

‘Tajen Sui, the founder of the Social Enterprise, was a full-time mission worker for Gawad Kalinga. He was based in GK Enchanted Farm and managed the operations of its farm-to-table restaurant. However, he witnessed first hand how such restaurant operations were precarious to the flow of visitors, where as if there were none, there would be no revenue source to provide continuous opportunities and sustainable livelihood for the Gawad Kalinga (GK) beneficiaries.

Working with the mothers, he found out that they were adept in making their own jams, spreads, and preserves, but that they need help from learned people with marketing, branding, operations, quality assurance, supply chain, and finance.

This is also the picture that the rest of the Philippines has–that we are abundant with human talent and natural resources, but there is the missing middle who would be willing to work with them. First Harvest aims to bridge this gap. To date, the team employs 18 individuals, 3 of which are scholars of GK.’

THE CAKE CARTEL

Their products’ names may have given them away but the Cake Cartel aims to give their clients a “legally addicting” high with their baked goods. True to their creed, the Maryjane Bites (Fudgy Brownies) and Pablo Escbobars (Chocolate Revel Bars) were highly intoxicating. Bonnie and Clyde, however, took the cake for me! The sweetness of the Tres Leches and saltiness of the Rock Salt and Cheese was a certified lethal combination.
