THC (Truly Home-made Chips): Best Potato and Camote Chips in Manila! #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

THC (Truly Home-made Chips) by Trisha is undoubtedly the best potato and camote chips in Manila made the artisanal way in small batches. The chips are thinly sliced, not too greasy and salty.

Using the THC acronym is coincidental and does not refer to its notorious meaning (tetrahydrocannabinol).

This is one of the best-kept secret potato chips in Manila and by order only when they make a fresh batch (P250/pack).

Congratulations to Trisha and THChips team for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!

KABUTEHAN: Mushroom Goodness from @GawadKalinga! #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

Kabutehan, is a play on words. In Filipino, it directly means a place where you grow mushrooms or "kabute". It also closely resembles "kabutihan", which means goodness. The goodness of it all comes from the Gawad Kalinga project that's helping mothers and farmers create more opportunities for themselves with the introduction of oyster mushroom farming.

As a popular superfood, oyster mushrooms are known to be nutrient-packed with benefits such as upping your immunity with Vitamin D and for having cancer-fighting properties. It also helps keep the calorie, fat and cholesterol low. 🙂

Kabutehan's creative twist of adding traditional Filipino flare to their yummy mushroom appetizers caught the attention of the foodies. Congratulations for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test with a rating of 3.7!

CARMEN’S BEST: The Secret Behind One of the Best Ice Creams in the World? @CarmensBest

Ever since Carmen's Best Ice Cream won the Ultimate Taste Test #6 in Rockwell in 2011, I have yet to taste another ice cream that comes close to its artisanal goodness. Recently, this was the ice cream served to the Pope during his PAL flight back home to Italy, and is now served on the long haul business class flights of Philippine Airlines.

It's one of the Philippine-made food products that we can be proud of and can be exported to ASEAN and the rest of Asia.
